Part 27: YOU INSIDE ME (AR)

Ridhima walked slowly towards the bus stop where she could head to go back to her house…she felt so hopeless at the moment…the meeting with Armaan's manager just now was giving her a very strong headache not to mention, a serious illness in her heart system too… Armaan … Armaan … Ridhima thought went to him again like usual…what will happen to him the moment the world knew about his love towards her??? The moment the world realized that they had engaged??? Will Armaan lose his career??? The only thing that Armaan was putting himself too much effort on??? Ridhima shook her head…she cannot let this thing messed up her decision to be with Armaan …  Armaan had said that he will find a way to solve all this matter regarding him and his group and his company…and Ridhima will have to put her faith in Jun…only Armaan …yes, she need to trust him…as Ridhima walked on, thinking that she will call Armaan tonight and told him about his manager, Ridhima's phone rang loudly…smiling slightly, Ridhima pulled out her phone…but the caller wasn't Armaan …it was Muski… Ridhima's bestfriend… Ridhima quickly picked it up…


"Hello,!!! I am on the way home right now!!! So, tell me…what are we going to have for lunch today or do I have to cook myself when I get back???" asked Ridhima happily, teasing Muskaan lack of ability in cooking…but Muski remained silent on the phone's other line…at once Ridhima stopped walking…

"Muskaan??? Is everything alright???" she asked… Ridhima could hear Muski's sighing over the phone…

"Ridhima …where are you right now???" Muski asked… Ridhima looked around…she was standing nearby the road, heading to the nearest bus stop to take a bus to go home…and she explained it to Muski…

"Mao, I think…it is better if you go to straight to the hospital first…Shaan…well…" Muski said but she stopped the moment she couldn't find a word to describe Shaan's condition and his parents demand on Ridhima …

"Shaan??? Hospital???  , tell me what had happened...is Shaan in the hospital right now??? Why???" asked Ridhima sounded worried… Ridhima was worried of course…Shaan was her boyfriend once and also her boss…she was in a good term with him before…and now that she had decided to dump him, she still would like to be his friend and care for him like a sister towards her elder brother…

"Shaan tried to kill himself…when he realized that he can't gave up on you, he decided to end his life…he said that there is no meaning for him to stay alive when he can't have you to be with him…" said Muski slowly…she could felt that Ridhima's had stopped breathing…and she could tell too that Ridhima was feeling cold from head to toe now just like she did when she heard the news…

"You can't be serious right???" Ridhima asked…Muskaan closed her eyes…she didn't like the sound of Ridhima voice right now…

"I'm sorry Ridhima …but you know I won't lie over this matter…Shaan really tried to kill himself…his parents were here in our house this morning…they asked me to tell you to go and meet Shaan…maybe…urgh, I hate to say this!!! They think that whatever happen between you and Shaan, you need to be responsible for it right now…they want you to stick to Shaan and take care of him now…in this moment where they thought Shaan really needed you…" Muski explained… Ridhima gulped…what had she done??? She couldn't take Shaan's life like that…his parents were right…she should be responsible for her actions…for her cruel decision to Shaan…to Armaan…and to herself…and her mind went back to the conversation she had with Armaan's manager just now…she had taken Armaan's career from him…and now, she had taken Shaan's life from him…and none of this was her right…she don't have the right to mess up this two men's life just to be with her…

Ridhima??? Are you still there???" Muskann asked when she felt Ridhima's had become so silence over the phone…

"Yes…I am still here…" Ridhima answered weakly…

"You listen to me now Ridhima …none of this was your fault…this was all destined by the God…and if Shaan is too idiot to realize that you and him just don't belong together, then it is his problem!!! Not yours, you hear me???" Muskaan said fiercely…she was angry with Shaan…why did he have to ruin everything that made Ridhima a happy woman??? And for God's sake!!! That is meant by being with Armaan!!! Can't he just cleaned his thought on Ridhima and accepted the truth??? But Ridhima remained silent…it is really true that Shaan's suicide trial wasn't her fault??? Is it really true that fate had meant to have her with Armaan??? Fate had once separated them  it is not impossible for the fate to fool around with them again this time…

"Ridhima!!! You listen to me!!! Don't start to jump into any wrong conclusion that might lead you to do something stupid and dramatic!!! Just go and see Shaan and tell him straight…that you don't love him anymore and he needed to fix his wire back and live his life as usual!!! For God's sake, stop pretending like he was the only one who is suffering!!! And then tell to his parent from me too that they are, really, an old get couple!!!" Muski yelled over the phone… Ridhima smiled…that's why she would always love Muski…she would always able to bring Ridhima's back to her sense… Ridhima chuckled…

"Of course I will…anyway…thanks Muski…I will hang up now…see you later…" Ridhima ended the phone…she took a deep breath and then started walking again…this time, she will tell Shaan to just give up on her…she will not let the fate fooled her and Armaan again Ridhima squeezed the ring on her finger…yes, that is the prove that she is belong to Armaan …and so Ridhima  will always belong to Armaan …

"Is everything prepared according to the plan???" asked Armaan to Aiba…Aiba nodded…someone knocked on the door and the two of them turned their heads to look on the door…Rahul, Atul and Ohno came in…Atul sat next to Armaan and sighed…he looked up at Armaan with a worried expression…

"Are you sure you want to do this???" he asked…Jun looked up at him…so do the other members of Arashi…

"Yes…why did you ask???" Armaan answered and asked him back…Rahul sighed…

"Nothing…I just have the feeling that you should ask Ridhima first…at least she can prepare herself when later she is attack by the reporters…" Rahul answered…Armaan smiled…

"This is suppose to be a surprise engagement's present for her…that's why I won't tell her…and don't worry…she won't be attack…she is in her house right now…I dropped her there earlier…at least for now…" said Armaan Ohno and Atul exchanged looks…boys can be pretty idiot and so confident when they are in love…

"Yosh!!! Shall we start then???" asked Aiba…Armaan nodded…he got up and stood in the middle of his other friends…bowing to them he said…

"Thank you for all the support and understanding…I will appreciate it as long as I live…" Armaan said…Rahul grabbed him and made him stand straight again…he put an arm around Armaan's shoulder and nodded…

"Then, let's hope that you will be still alive after this press conference to appreciate our support before the company's manager kill you," said Atul, rolling his eyes…they all laughed…walking hand in hand, they walked to the waiting press that were called to hear an important announcement from Armaan…the moment they had took their seat, one reporter raised his hand…

"Are you going to tell us about your current status with that girl, Ridhima Gupta???" he asked…Armaan looked to his other friends…they all nodded and smiled at him…Armaan squeezed the ring on his finger…he prayed that Ridhima was watching this…

"Yes…I am proudly announced that I, Armaan Malik had just engaged to Ridhima Gupta…"….

The camera clicked on many side and Arashi were blinded with their lights… Armaan smiled… Ridhima, I will make you mine…now and forever…
___________________________________________________________

Ridhima stood frozen…she can't believe her eyes!!! There was Armaan and Arashi on the television…and he had just announced that he and she had just engaged!!! Ridhima's mouth hang opened…why don't he tell her??? Suddenly, she felt herself blushing…looking around, Ridhima realized that many people were shocked with the news…a few of the young nurses there seemed to be angry…one of them had even started crying… Ridhima sighed…Armaann…why did you have to do this so sudden huh??? Ridhima decided that this is not the right time to call Armaan and discuss the matter…so she walked on to Shaan's room in that hospital…

"Kill me!!! Please Dad!!! Just kill me!!! I can't accept it!!! Ridhima is mine!!! But now she is going to be that man's wife!!! Please Mum!!! Please!!! Let me die!!!" Ridhima heard someone crying and yelling…somehow, she realized who was that voice belong to…quicken her pace, it didn't took her long to come to the source of the voice…there, she saw Shaan laying on the hospital floor crying and yelling while being calm down by his parents…a few hospital workers were trying to take the knife that he hold on his hand… Ridhima saw a few blood dropped from his wrist… Ridhima put a hand to cover her mouth from crying too loud…she backed away, unable to look more…Shaan…oh, poor Shaan!!! Ridhima cried…and cried…until she collapsed on one of the seat at the hospital entrance…

"Oh, Shaan!!! I'm sorry…sorry that I left you in this state…sorry that I don't love you like I did before…" Ridhima said while crying…suddenly, her phone rang… Ridhima quickly picked it up…

"Hello…" but before she can't say more than that a woman voice yelled at her…

"You bitch!!! Come here at once!!! Do you know what you have done to my son??? Shaan is dying!!! Dying!!! And it was all because of you!!!" Mrs shah yelled at the phone…then she hung up…she tried to take a breath to calm herself down…but she can't…not when Shaan was busying fighting with his life in that ICU' room…

Ridhima dropped the phone on to her knees…

"Armaan Armaan…." she called for him…she needed him to tell her what to do now…she was afraid and all alone in this situation…

"Ring…ring…" her phone rang again… Ridhima picked up as quickly as she can hoping that it was Armaan…

"Hello, Armaan!!!" she said…

"Congratulation, …you had done it!!! For the announcement on your engagement Armaan  had just received an order from the company that he was suspended from Arashi…are you happy right now??? You said you love him…why did you have to ruin the life of the people you love???" said Armaan's manager…then he clicked the phone off… Ridhima felt her world had ended…

"Why did you have to ruin the life of the people you love???"…said Armaan's manager…

"Shaan is dying!!! Dying!!! And it was all because of you!!!"…said Shaan's mother…

Mao stood up…Armaan…Shaan…the person that she love…yes, she love them both…Armaan as her lover and life…and Shaan as her brother and friend… Ridhima felt that she was too tired to cry…she wiped the last tear that dropped on her cheeks…she knew just what to do now…she will have to put an end to it…put an end to Armaan and Shaan who were both were hurting themselves…don't they realize that they were hurting her too??? Tearing her apart into thousand pieces when she can't make a choice between them??? Ridhima took a deep breath…for the last time in her life…she wants to see Armaan…she picked up her phone and dialed his number…

"Sorry…the number that you have dialed is now busy…you can leave a message after the 'beep'….beep!!!!" the phone's operator said… Ridhima closed her eyes…God!!! Brave her for doing this…

"Armaan…I need to see you…now…" she said…

Heaven
