Part 33: YOU INSIDE ME (AR)

Muskaan sat awkwardly on the seat in Arashi's living room in their house, avoiding all the eyes that were looking at her… Rahul was sitting next to her but didn't say anything at all to her…Muskaan looked sideway at him…how the heck that she ended up hugging him when she was busying cheering for Ridhima ultimate escape from Shaan the devil??? But…she thought naughtily…she won't complain about hugging him…it's the best gift that she ever had in her life from the moment she became Arashi die-hard fans…and she is a fangirl whose life ambition is to marry Rahul Grewal…and just a moment ago, she get to hug him…so no complaint at all people!!! Muskaan smiled at her own thought….but…it was really at the very wrong time…


"What are you smiling at???" Rahul burst up in a loud voice…Muskaan jumped in her seat…her hand covering her chest where her heart was buried…she looked at Rahul who looks like he was about to eat her…but Rahul picked up on a wrong person…even though Muskaan adores him, she won't let anyone yell at her like that…she stood up, her hands on her waist, glaring at Rahul…

"It's really none of your business what I'm smiling at!!! I feel like smiling right now…so what??? Any problem with it???" Muskaan  asked hotly as she smiled widely in front of Rahul, showing her beautifully arranged teeth…Atul covered his mouth with his hands, trying to stop himself from laughing…Ohno laughed out loudly while Aiba nodded his head, agreeing with her…rahul stood up in front of her, glaring at her too…he was taller than her…that she had to crack her neck up in order to look straight in his eyes…

"Don't smile…you look awful and idiot…" Rahul said to her…Muskaan widen her smile…Rahul groaned and he walked away from her…Muskaan stop smiling and put her hands down to her side…

"What am I doing here???" she asked them…Aiba smiled at her…but it was Atul who answered her…

"You caused a problem to rahul, Muskaan…didn't you realize it???" he asked…Muskaan looks like she was lost…

"I don't get it…sorry…but I'm kind of slow today…after cheering for Ridhima …it's tiring…but fun…I had to admit that…" she said back to him…chuckling…but stop at once when she saw rahul glared at her again…

"Okay…okay…let's make it clear then…don't bother to use poem's language…I'm suck at literature…" she said, sitting down again on the coach…Atul, Ohno and Aiba all looked at Rahul…

"The reporters must be wondering what the relationship between you is and I right now…" Rahul started…Muskaan raised an eyebrow…Rahul walked to her and sat next to her…he looked at her straight in the eyes…

"Armaan and Ridhima case hadn't been settle yet and when you hugged me just now, they must be wondering whether we are couple too or not…I'm in Arashi with Armaan and I bet they all must knew now that you are Ridhima's best friend and they will conclude that it is will be easier for us to be together since we had that connection…double date, something…" Rahul explained…Muskaan blinked…she??? Dating??? Wow!!! Tempting…but her mouth didn't say that…in fact…

"Well, that is really idiot of them…I mean, who would want to date a bad-tempered-rapper like you??? You are only good in biting other people head off…" she said…then she clapped her hands at her mouth, realizing how hell things she had said to him…Rahul rolled his eyes and stood up…

"I'll leave it to you guys…I can't deal with a girl who didn't have the brain…" he said and leave…Muskaan looked at his back then stuck her tongue out…

"Sensitive rapper…urgh…" she complained…she turned to look at the others who were looking at her in an amused look…

"Well…if you all want to explain 'that incident' to the press, just call me okay??? You knew my number…" she said, ignoring their looks…she stood up and made it to leave the house…Ohno called out at her just when she was standing by the door…

"Do you like Rahul???" he asked…Muskaan looked up then turned to look at him…she Winked…

"Yes…I like him…so much that I can marry him at once if he is looking for a wife…" she answered…the Arashi exchanged their looks…

"Then why don't you use 'that incident' to get him???" asked Aiba…Muskaan smiled more widely…

"Because I want him to like the real me…not because of the mistake that I done…no…I might be his fans but when it comes to love him, I want it to be real…just like Armaan and Ridhima …" she replied…then she turned around and leave…the others started discussing the matter but Rahul…stood by the stairs, was stunned with Muskaan's answer…he gulped…did she just crashed her heart just now??? Rahul felt himself blushing again just like when she hugged him…he shook his head and headed to his room but with a smile on his face…
____________________________

Ridhima ran and ran…her feet had started to get cool due to the fact that it is a winter day and she only wore her wedding gown with her heels off as she needed to hurry in searching for her prince…she stopped panting at one of the bus stop…everyone were staring at her but she ignored it…she sat down, breathing properly…she needed to think calmly now…where can she go to look for Armaan??? Em…his house…no, he won't be there…he wouldn't want to face his friends when he had just heartbroken seeing her nearly married to Shaan…his office??? What the heck??? Can he still have the mood to work in this kind of time??? Ridhima shook her head violently…his parent's house??? But… Ridhima never knew where his hometown so…that idea is out…she sighed…she covered her face with her hands and yelled in frustration inside her heart…Armaan…where are you??? Can you hear that I am looking for you right now??? She thought frustrated…

"I'm sorry…can I help you??? You look miserable…" asked a girl… Ridhima looked up at her…she looks like a high school girl…the moment she saw Ridhima, she put a hand to her mouth… Ridhima looked at her weird expression and opened her mouth to ask her…

"Oh, my GOD!!!" she suddenly screamed… Ridhima tried to smile but she really scared at the way she treated her right now…

"You are Ridhima Gupta…you are Armaan's girlfriend!!!" the girl said in a high-pitched voice…

"Erk…damn it!!!" Ridhima said when she heard the girl…she gulped and tried to escape, but she was pulled back to her seat by another girl…she had just remembered that her wedding is live on TV today since Arashi was a special guest there…of course, everyone would know that she is the runaway bride and Armaan's ex-girl…

"It is really you…have you found Armaan then???" she asked, sitting next to her… Ridhima's mind turned back to Armaan…she needed to find him…that's right…

"No…I haven't…I don't know where to go and find him…" she answered, suddenly felt her eyes heavier than ever as emotions came rushing inside her…she wanted to cry…what if she can't find Armaan??? What if Armaan didn't want her anymore??? What if she lost him???

"Don't worry…we will help you…" said another girl… Ridhima looked at them all…they were about six girls there standing around her… Ridhima gulped…Armaan's fangirls???

"Are you his fans then???" she asked…they all nodded…

"Don't you all get mad at me for making him love me???" she asked again…they nodded too… Ridhima opened her mouth to say sorry but one of them stop her…

"But we want him to be happy…and if you are the girl that he want and love…then we are okay with it…we will always support you with him…"…the others nodded…

"Beside, you don't look ugly too…just nicely cute to match his good looking image…" one of them said… Ridhima smiled at them…she became tearful now…

"Thank you," she said, sobbing a bit…the one sitting next to her, patted her shoulder…

"But I didn't know where to find him…" Ridhima said in a small voice, looking down at her hands…the ring that Armaan gave to her glimmered on her finger…she gasped…then she stood up…

"I need to go now…" she said dreamily…they all looked at her in excitement…

"Have you figured out where he will be then???" they asked… Ridhima nodded a bit…still looked dreamy…

"Yes…probably…" she answered as she started moving…leaving her shoes behind…then…

"Miss Gupta…don't leave your things around like this…Mr Malik won't forgive me if you lost any of your valuable possessions…" said a man from her behind… Ridhima turned to look at that voice…

"Mr Manager…" she said in shock…he nodded…then he gestured a hand to a car that was parked nearby the bus stop… Ridhima looked confusedly at him…

"I thought you didn't approve us…" she said…he nodded and smiled…

"But…I changed my mind now…seeing how Mr Malik nearly killed himself by working hard all the times just to try to forget you and in the end still loving you like that, I think it is time to have faith in both of you…" he answered…out of her happiness, she hugged the man and then pulling away she said in a high voice…

"Take me to my prince then!!!"…the man nodded...he gestured to Ridhima that she could lead the way… Ridhima turned to Armaan's fangirls and raised her hand like she was saluting a captain of an army…

"I'll go and find him and bring him back and give him full happiness…I won't let him cry nor did I would ever let his smile left him…do you have faith in me???" she asked…they all smiled and saluted back at her…she nodded firmly and got inside the car…a girl came to the window and handed her the shoes that she left behind…

"Go and find your prince, Cinderella…" she said, smiling widely… Ridhima grinned at her and nodded…as the car took off, she raised a hand outside the window, waving at the people that she left behind her…they all cried in union…

"Good luck Gupta

Armaan lay on the floor of the jungle under the tree where he had once found the missing rings that belong to Amar and Radhika…the rings too were once a piece of proves that he had once engaged to Ridhima… Ridhima …that name was making his heart shattered into thousand of pieces…he continued to stare at the tree up on his vision…ignoring the fact that he was cold…the floor was covered in snow since it is one of winter day…but he didn't felt cold at all since his inside was cold now…he had lost Ridhima …she had married to another guy…he had lost his strength to get up from the snowy floor…lost his will to do anything at all…lost his energy to even cry…yes, he wanted to cry…but no matter how much he wanted too, there was no more tears he can shed out… Ridhima had that effect to him…he had lost all of his energy, his strength and his everything the moment he saw her walking down the aisle to marry Shaan…even the last strength that he had when he was leaving the church to go to this place had now left him…he was alone and most of all, he still have no will to forget Ridhima …okay, maybe he have that will but he just have no gut to do so… Ridhima was his dream, his future, his life, his past…she was connected to him in a most weird way no one can't explain it…Armaan sighed…he raised his hand up and saw his ring…

"Can I still have you on my finger now that your partner would never be on that person's finger???" he asked the ring…no answer came out…he chuckled…a ring can't answer you idiot…he thought…

"Of course it is you bighead!!!" someone answered him…Armaann quickly jerked up to sit…he looked around…that voice was Ridhima …but it can't be…he saw her at the wedding…she was walking to Shaan when he was leaving her…Armaan laughed…

"I must be missing her so much…that's why I can even hallucinate her now…pity me…" he said in between laughter…someone smacked his head…Armaan see who had hit him…

"Idiot…bighead…the world most stupendous man….the world greatest gift…" she said…Armaan blinked…his angel was standing there…

"Ridhima???" he called out… Ridhima smiled down to him…tears was running fast on her cheeks…Armaan stood up…he looked at her…she was still in her wedding gown…but her veil was gone…her hair was no longer in tight bun but now was let loose, curtaining her pretty face who was damped in tears…she had no shoes on her…

"What are you doing here???" Armaan asked…she can't be real right??? She had just married to Shaan… Ridhima walked to him and when she was near enough, she started punching every part of his body within her reach…

"You ask me 'what am I doing here?'…you dare to ask so…are you blind or what??? Are you really that idiot huh, Armaan Malik???" she asked, screaming a bit when it comes to his names…Armaan stopped her making him her punching bag by grabbing both of her hands on locked on her back in a tight grip… Ridhima stopped, looking at him in teary eyes…

"I thought you are married to Shaan…" he asked…blinded by her beautiful eyes…it's been a long time since he had last stared at those eyes…that eyes who always seduced him to stare at it for a long time and fall deeply in love with it owner… Ridhima pulled her hand out from his grip and she show him her hand…Armaan stared at it…then his mouth was wide open in surprise…she wore their engagement ring!!!

"I can't marry Shaan…I love you idiot!!! I…I…it must be you…it always been you…the one I want to be married to…but…" before Ridhima could finish her words, armaan hugged her tightly…pressing his body to her… Ridhima hugged him back, burying her face on his neck, inhaling the sweet smell of his perfume mixed with the snow…

"You don't even try to stop me from marrying Shaan…" she nagged at him, punching his back…Armaan laughed…she had forgotten how cute she can be when she was angry with him…

"I thought you want to marry him…I mean it always been up to you to choose the one you want to be with…" he answered her… Ridhima still punched him on his back, ignoring his answer…

"But it is okay now…we are together now…" Armaan said in proud voice…at once, Ridhima pulled away from him…

"Who say so??? I won't be with you…I still hadn't forgives you for turning me into this…a runaway bride…" Ridhima said, pouted…Armaan looked in trouble now…he looked at her in a worried expression… Ridhima started walking away from him…playing with him…she no longer cried…when Armaan was with her, she felt so at home and safe…no one would cried in that situation right???

"Okay…okay…what would you want me to do so that you will forgive me???" he asked, raising both his hands, surrendering to her… Ridhima smiled…she turned back to look at him…she put a hand on her chin, playing with it as though she was deep in thoughts…Armaan waited nervously…then she smiled…blushing a bit…

"Ehem…I kind of missing your lips…so…just give me a kiss first…if you are good in it, then maybe I'll forgive you…but…if you are bad…then…" she didn't get to finish her talk when Armaan kissed her…he held her in his arms, possessing her as he circled her little body with his strong arms…he tastes her every part of lips lovingly… Ridhima smiled between their kiss, slowly her hands went up to hold him back by the waist…after such a long time, they broke off…they just stood there, under the tree where had marked their fate in life, with the rings on their fingers, looking into each others eyes and words failed them…but there is only one thing they could describe the situation in their own hearts…they had been at home at last…this whereAmar and Radhika had vowed that they will always be together and through Armaan and Ridhima that vowed was becoming reality now…

"Am I forgiven now???" Armaan asked in seductive tone, leaning in to put his forehead on Ridhima's…she laughed a bit and nodded…Armaan laughed too…it was just like a music when their laughter became one…a very beautiful song that only the two of them could heard and understand… Ridhima closed her eyes…so do Armaan…savoring their reunion moments…their hands were entwined together, the rings finally be reunited again…then Ridhima pulled away…

"No…you are not forgiven yet!!!" she said in a high voice…Armaan glared at her…looking playfully angry and annoyed… Ridhima stuck her tongue at him…

"It is not my fault…you are the one who cause me into so much troubles!!! Look at me!!! In this cold winter day, I had to run along the road, searching for you with no shoes!!! My legs and feet are damn hurt right now!!! And I was cold…I might ended up having a high fever after this!!!" she said in a fast mode…suddenly Armaan carried her in his arms, cradling her in a bride style…she yelled a bit…Armaan walked to the cottage there and get inside it…he put Ridhima on the coach in the living room…she looked away at once…pouting…Armaan laughed…he sat next to her then he pulled her into his arms…making her to sit on his lap and lay her head on his broad shoulder…then he hugged her…

"What are you doing Pinocchio???" Ridhima asked in a bored voice…Armaan smiled at her…

"Protecting you from coldness…about your feet and legs…don't worry it will be okay after sometimes…besides, you don't have to run anymore now…I am with you…I won't runaway from you…and I can always piggyback you if you want to…" he explained… Ridhima made a face like she didn't believe it and Armaan kissed her lightly on the lips…

"It won't work…your charms…" she said firmly…but she didn't make any move at all like she wanted to get away from Armaan…in fact, she seems to be enjoying herself…Armaan cracked a naughty smile…

"I know…but you enjoy being in my arms right???" he teased… Ridhima looked up at his handsome face…she searched his face hungrily…he still had the same good looking eyes, breathtaking lips, beautifully made nose…only his hairstyle had changed…but it suits him well…how can she resist him??? Ridhima nodded, blushing…Armaan yelled in happiness…

"Yes!!! I win!!!"… Ridhima laughed…she smacked armaan on his hand…he looked down at her, grinning widely… Ridhima reached up to touch his face…Armaan stopped grinning at once…

"I waited a lifetime to be with you…" she said in a small voice…Armaan smiled…

"And I waited a lifetime to say I love you…" Armaan said… Ridhima felt herself became teary again…

"I love you Ridhima …" Armaan said again…he kissed her on the cheek… Ridhima's tears felt on to her cheeks…Armaan kissed the tears as well…

"Don't cry…you look ugly when you do so…" he teased her… Ridhima laughed a bit…

"I love you too Armaan Malik…" she said to him…Armaan just stared into her eyes…her eyes were still in tears…he smiled…

"Will you be a bride again Ridhima Gupta???" he asked… Ridhima smiled more widely….

"Again???" she asked in an amused voice…Armaan nodded…

"This time you are my bride…you are Mrs Armaan Malik to be…" he said… Ridhima eyes grew wider at the words 'Mrs Malik'…she nodded quickly and hugged him…Armaan laughed…patting her head…then Ridhima pulled him into a kiss, sealing their deal…Armaan pushed away and Ridhima looked at him in confusion…

"When a man proposed…he is the one who should be kissing the girl first…" he complained at her… Ridhima smiled naughtily…she pulled Armaan to her again…

"Who cares??? I feel like kissing you…go to hell with those ridiculous rules…" she answered him…Armaan laughed as her lips came crushing on him…and they go on kissing as though they hadn't had enough with it…

"Where is Armaan??? Had Ridhima found him???" asked Aiba in a worried voice…the others shook their heads…Arashi were now sitting nervously in the long table prepared for their press conference…their manager had approved of Armaan and Ridhima relationship…he had stated his approval firmly to the company…and now Arashi are free to have their relationship with any girls they want to…tonight, is the night they are going to announce it…but unfortunately, the lucky man was missing in action…

"We can't wait anymore…let's start…" said Atul…the other nodded…but just before they could have the attention of the reporters…Armaan came walked in to the hall, with Ridhima, holding hands… Ridhima still wore her wedding gown and Armaan still in his tuxedo…they both smiled to the waiting crowd who were shocked with their sudden appearance…Arashi just smiled widely when they saw them holding hands…they made it at last…the happiness that they are craving for is actually theirs from the beginning till the end…there was a new light shown on Armaan's face…his already handsome figure became more gorgeous when Ridhima standing next to him…there was a new spring in Ridhima's steps as she walked next to Armaan…happiness overflow in them…and only the two of them can give it to their self…

"Come here, you idiot…" Rahul mouthed to Armaan…grinning, he took Ridhima to sit with them… Ridhima was blushing when she realized all the cameras there were capturing her pictures…well, she is the official girl who is going out with Armaan Malik…proud with it, Ridhima smiled at the reporters there…

"Well, as you can see today, we are having this conference to inform all of Arashi's fans out there that from today onwards Mr Malik is officially dating Miss Gupta…" said their manager, announcing it to the waiting press…the buzzing started growing as the cameras clicking madly at the couple…all Arashi were clapping their hands…Armaan smiled proudly, nodding to everyone who was looking at him…

"There is one more thing…" said Armaan and the crowd became silent again… Ridhima looked at him…she nodded when Armaan looked sideway at her, waiting for her approval…

"We will get married as soon as possible…I can't afford to lose her again…for the third time…" Armaan announced…the buzzing growing louder this time…Atul high-five his hand with Ohno and Rahul made a thumb-up at Ridhima … Ridhima smiled at him…Aiba clapped his hands happily and their manager nodded approvingly at Armaan who smiled back at him…

"For the third time??? I thought you only lose her once…" asked a reporter at Armaan…Armaan and Ridhima exchanged their looks… Ridhima smiled…

"No…we had lost each other two time before…one, when I was Ridhika and he was Amar…second, when I nearly married to Shaan…and so, there is not going to be a third time for us…I have had enough…" Ridhima said, laughing…Armaan laughed too…

"Radhika??? Amar???" the reporters said in surprised…Armaan got up from his seat…holdig out his hands to Ridhima, who took it and stood up next to him…Armaan said…

"Let's go…I want to be with you alone now…"… Ridhima smiled and nodded…they left the conference as everyone started to ask questions at them…leaving Atul, Ohno, Rahul and Aiba to deal with it…just before the conference ended…

"Mr Grewal…I am curious…what is happening between you and Miss Chadda…Miss Gupta's best friend???" one of the reporter asked…Rahul who was drinking a glass water choked when he heard the question…Aiba patted his back…

"Oh…you know…it is developing right now…the feelings…" answered Atul with a matter-of-factly tone…Rahul threw him a glare but he ignored it…

"Thank you…that's all for today…" said their manager…creating a curious feeling in the air as he left Rahul's relationship matter in hold…
