part 12 : Shikayat -season 2

'Raina...???' Armaan whisper...
'Ammyyy...' Raina came running towards Armaan and hugs him...
Karan and Riddhima was surprise with the sudden present but they didn't say a word, Riddhima didn't like the fact that this girl was all over her husband and seeing Armaan uncomfortable expression she thought to save him from this Raina girl seeing how she wasn't willing to leave Armaan...
They all stood up when Raina move to Armaan, Nikki also just kept staring at her being surprise with her sudden arrival... Neither of them was expecting Raina, that too at this time of the night without informing before coming to someone house...
When Raina kept hugging Armaan and even Karan was feeling uncomfortable to see this girl hugging his already married son, Karan turn his face looking every where else... Riddhima saw how everyone was getting uncomfortable with the situation so thought to break the moment...
'Excuse me...' Riddhima said pulling Armaan away from the girl...

'Ammy, yeh koan hai...???' Raina ask holding Armaan arm...
'Lagta toh tum Armaan ke friend ho, lekin it's sad tum mujhe nehi jaante...' Riddhima said moving Armaan away from Raina and coming face to face her...
Raina didn't like the way Riddhima separate her from Armaan, she look towards her to see she was wearing modern cloth but had mangalsutra around her neck and sindoor on her forehead where the hair was parted... Realizing how Riddhima was showing her full right on Armaan, Raina blood boils as she understood who Riddhima must be...
Nikki who was holding her breath, not knowing how Riddhima would behave meeting Raina, relax a little seeing how well Riddhima was handling the situation... Karan also smile hearing, how well Riddhima answer back to the girl because he wasn't liking a bit of her act...
Karan knows, hardly Armaan make friends with anyone and suddenly this girl appear from nowhere and was claiming to be someone closed to Armaan... All these years, Armaan never mention about this girl as Karan knows about the small circle of Armaan friends zone...
'Armaan...???' Raina look towards him as if she was demanding for an explanation of Riddhima's behavior...
'Why don't u asked me Ms...' Riddhima stop letting her introduce herself...
'Raina...' Raina said with full of attitude...
'Ms. Raina... Nice meeting you, I m Riddhima...' Riddhima said forwarding her hand...
'Riddhima...???' Raina ask not taking her hand...
'Mrs. Riddhima Armaan Mallik, wife of your friend...' Riddhima said moving closed to Armaan, holding his arm...
Karan and Nikki smile hearing this, while Armaan was shocked because it wasn't easy to shut Raina like that... Only Nikki knows about this girl as she wasn't important in his life because Raina force herself to be a part of his life, in his friendship zone...
'Yeh kab huva...??? Aur Ammy, tumne mujhe bataya tak nehi...??? Jabse tum waapas aaye ho, mujhe call tak nehi kiya aur meri MSG's ka bhi reply nehi kiya...' Raina said...
'Are you sure, tum Armaan ke dost ho...???' Riddhima asked when Raina started to shoot questions after questions to Armaan...
'Of course, I m very closed friend of Ammy...' Raina said...
'Lagta toh nehi, kyunki Armaan ne ek baar bhi tumhari naam nehi liya... Hum dono ek dusre koh ek saal se zyada jaanti hun aur ab hum dono saath bhi hai... Shayad jitna tum Armaan koh close samajhte hai, utna Armaan nehi samajhta... Kyunki Armaan ke close zone mein aana, bohot mushkil hai...' Riddhima said as she smirk, not knowing why she was hating this girl so much...
'Beti, aap bura mat maanna... Lekin main bhi Armaan ke saare friends koh jaanta hun... Armaan khud milwaya hai mujhe, lekin kabhi aapke baare mein zikar tak nehi kiya... Aur Riddhima bilkul tik keh rahi hai, woh ab Armaan ka patni hai...' Karan said...
'Bhai toh mujhse bhi kuch nehi chupate, sorry to disappoint you Raina... Lekin lagta hai, yaha tumhe koi nehi jaante siwai tumhari Ammy ke...' Nikki said...
'It's fine na Dad and Kido... Ab yeh Armaan ka friend hai toh humhari guest huvi... Lekin tumhe aane se pehle ek baar inform kardena chahiyeh ta Raina, so we could arrange guest room for you... Koi baat nehi, hojaati hai kabhi kabhi aise galatiya...' Riddhima said...
'Haan bhabs, ab aagaye toh kuch din rukh jao... Main tumhare liye guest room arrange karwati hun...' Nikki said moving to get the room ready for Raina as she call a servant...
All this while, Armaan just stood staring at Raina not believing his eyes that she has truly come there... It's been more than a year and he don't know how suddenly Raina just drop in front of him because he knows, if she has come than she would have reason behind her visit...
Karan sit back as they had left their dinner incomplete, Riddhima look towards Armaan smiling as she let go off his arm so he could sit back and finished his dinner... Not having anything else to say, Armaan also sit and started to have his dinner while Riddhima face Raina once again...
'Tum fresh hojao, tumhare liye khana main kamre mein bhijwa dungi...' Riddhima said with a force smile on her lips...
Knowing Armaan wouldn't speak a single word, that too when Riddhima was controlling everything around the house which Raina has realized in these few seconds of her present, she move towards the hall as Nikki came and was waiting for her so she could show her guest room...
Looking at Armaan one more time, Raina move with Nikki as she lead her to her current room for the days she would stay with them... Nikki was hoping that, this girl leave as soon as possible because even she didn't like a bit of her present...
AFTER DINNER,
ARMAAN RIDDHIMA ROOM
Riddhima was unpacking while Armaan just sit lost in somewhere, after coming they has changed to their night cloths but when Riddhima started to unpacked as she don't want to leave things like that, Armaan also sit watching her doing work but his mind was busy some where else...
When Riddhima was done unpacking and arranging their cloths neatly in the wardrobe with other things as well in their respective shelves, Riddhima look towards Armaan as he didn't disturb her at all... Riddhima remember how naughty he was back in their honeymoon but seeing suddenly he got so quiet with Raina sudden present, Riddhima knew he was disturb...
Riddhima knows if Raina was a closed friend of Armaan, he would definitely tell her but seeing how much disturb he got seeing her, Riddhima knew there was something more about this girl that Armaan was hiding from her which even Nikki knows because she has clearly seen their expression when they heard Raina's voice...
Not wanting to force Armaan to tell anything which he aren't comfortable, Riddhima thought not to question him unless he was ready to spill it out to her... Riddhima trust Armaan enough that, he would share his problem with her, today or tomorrow she wouldn't mind to wait for a little...
So when her work was done, she joins Armaan on the bed moving close to him as she hugs him being tired... Armaan trace was broke feeling Riddhima sudden touch, he hold her and kiss her forehead as she laid half of him with her head resting on his shoulder...
From the moment Raina enter back his life, Armaan was thinking how Riddhima would react to know about Raina being a part of his life which he don't want to remember... Armaan has no interest in that girl but she was forcefully in his life which he didn't like a bit...
That is the reason that Armaan never mention about her to anyone in his family other than Nikki because he knows, she would be the only one that he could trust with his secret... Armaan was waiting Riddhima to question him about Raina, he never thought Riddhima and Karan would accept Raina just a friend of his...
'Tumhe kuch puchna nehi...???' Armaan ask seeing how Riddhima laid close to him...
'Kiya puchna chahiyeh mujhe...???' Riddhima ask still lying like that...
'Raina ke baare mein...' Armaan said...
'Aap batana chaahte ho toh bata sakte ho, nehi toh mujhe kuch nehi jaanna...' Riddhima said closing her eyes...
'Raina, mere saath collage mein padti ti... Usse main pasand hun lekin maine kabhi usse dost se zyada nehi maanna...' Armaan said...
Riddhima didn't question about Raina more than Armaan was telling her, she was happy to know that Armaan was opening up with her without her asking him to do because she trust him... Riddhima trust him enough to believe that he only loves her, no other girl and he wouldn't ever have loved any girl other than her in his life after his mother and sister...
Armaan stop hoping that now Riddhima would ask more about Raina, but when she didn't utter a single word related to him and Raina's friendship, Armaan look down to see her eyes closed... Armaan thought she slept, so he just drop a kiss on her forehead...
Riddhima open her eyes feeling Armaan lips on her forehead, she look towards him still being same position... Armaan was surprise to find her awake as he thought, she fell asleep while listening to him... Armaan knows, she must be very tired after the long flight...
'Tum sun rahi ti...???' Armaan asked...
'Meri pati dev baat kare, aur main na sunu... Aisa ho sakta hai kiya...???' Riddhima ask moving her hand up to his face, caring his cheek...
'Mujhe laga...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Main tak ke sogayi, nehi Armaan... Aur main kabhi aapse sawal bhi nehi karunga Raina ke baare mein... Haan yeh baat hai ki main kabhi bardast nehi karungi koi aur ladki, meri husband koh aise hug kare... Woh kyun na aapke dost ho, kyunki aise hug karne ka permission sirf meri hai...'Riddhima said...
'I know Riddhima, tum mujhpe bohot barosa karte ho... Lekin tumhe jaanne ka pura hak hai mere har friend ke baare mein... Maine Nikki ke alawa kissi koh Raina ke baare mein nehi bataya, kyunki woh mujhe pasand karta hai... Lekin uske jo feelings mere liye hai, woh uski obsession bann gayi ti...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, usmein aapke koi galati nehi hai koi aapse itna pyar karta hai... Aap hai hi itna accha aur handsome, koi bhi aapse pyar kar beite... Main koi bhi ladki koh, aapse pyar karne se nehi rokh sakti lekin aapke paas aane se zarur rokhungi...' Riddhima said...
'Tumne usse rukhne ke liye kyun kaha...???' Armaan asked...
'Kyunki tab main nehi jaanti ti woh aapse pyar karta hai... Mujhe laga, woh sirf aapki friend hai... Aur Dad ke saamne, main aise kaise usse nikalne koh kehte... Armaan, mujhe nehi lagta woh yeh jaan ke ki ab aapke shaadi hochuka hai, zyada din yaha rukhenge...' Riddhima said...
'Riddhima, tum samajh nehi rahi ho... Woh mujhe dhundte dhundte yaha tak poch gayi... Maine kabhi usse nehi bataya, main yaha rehta hun... Bas usse itna pata hai ki main India mein rehta hun, not in this city...' Armaan said...
'Aap itna kyun soch rahe ho Armaan, jaise maine aaj Raina koh aapse dur kiya... Aage bhi main aapko usse dur rakhungi, jab tak main aapke paas hun woh kabhi aapke paas aane ki himmat bhi nehi karenge... Kare toh main usse, acche se samjha dungi...' Riddhima said...
'Itna himmat tumpe kab aagayi...???' Armaan asked...
'Janab, aapke liye karna padta hai because u are only mine... Aur yeh baat, sabko jaanna hoga...'Riddhima said winking at him and kissing his chin...
'Really now...' Armaan said turning and making her laid under him...
'Really...' Riddhima said showing her best smile, moving her hands around his neck...
'Hmm, phir toh mujhe tumhe dikhana padega...' Armaan said...
'Kiya...???' Riddhima ask very well knowing what Armaan must be thinking...
'Bataun kyun, dikhata hun na...' Armaan said as he move his free hand on her bare arm as his one hand was around her body...
Before Riddhima could ask what, Armaan seal her lips in to frenzy kiss letting her words got lost in her mouth... Riddhima smile when Armaan kiss her hurriedly, pressing her body under his strong one... Riddhima moan when she felt Armaan body press hard over her as he passionately taste her lips, chewing it sensually sending shiver down her spines...
Forgetting that how much tired they were a while ago, both were lost marking each other again as they never get bored to show their love for each other... They know, their words could clearly show their love but they prefer to show their love in action so that their soul also be a part of their love...
GUEST ROOM
Raina was throwing her cloths and other things here and there, her eyes were red due to anger... She was shaking from head to toe, she try her best not to damage anything in the room because she don't want anyone to know how much anger is in her as she get to know Armaan is married...
Armaan Mallik, whom she wished to marry was married to someone else... How can Raina accept this because she want Armaan to be her husband, not any other girl because she thinks no other can love him like the way she loves Armaan...
'Itni koshish karke main yaha aayi, lekin sunne koh kiya mila... Armaan... Meri Armaan... Uske shaadi... Woh bhi uss Riddhima se... Aisa kiya hai us mein jo Armaan ne... Mujhe bhulke Riddhima se... Yeh accha nehi kiya Armaan ne... Bilkul bhi accha nehi kiya...
Armaan tum mere saath aisa nehi kar sakte... Jaante huve bhi main tumse kitna pyar karta hun... Pehle tum mujhe chodkar yaha aagaya... Aur ab shaadi... Woh bhi uss Riddhima se... Nehi, main aisa hone nehi dungi... Armaan meri nehi ho sake toh, woh kissi ki nehi ho sakte... Riddhima ki toh, bilkul nehi...' Raina said as she look out from her room window, which was facing towards the corridor...
Raina could see Armaan's room light being on but after sometimes it got off making her anger reach higher thinking Armaan was with Riddhima in that room... Raina closed her eyes, to control her anger knowing it wouldn't be good if anyone else know about her intention for coming there...
As Raina thinks that no one knows anything about her, her love for Armaan... Raina thought being his friend, she could try to bring Armaan back in her life... Raina don't want to leave Armaan because it took her so much months to get information about Armaan and when she finally come, just because he is married, she wouldn't leave accepting her lost...
'Itni months tak tumhara inthizaar kiya, kuch din aur sahi... Lekin ek baat pakki hai ki main tumhe apna bana ke rahungi... Kyunki tum sirf meri ho, sirf mera hak hai tumpe...' Raina said smirking as a plan form in her mind to get rid of Riddhima so she could get Armaan in her life...
NEXT DAY
Riddhima sleep was disturb hearing the alarm clock, she stretch her hand and off the alarm as she took a turn... Feeling Armaan warm, she hide herself in his arm as his hands were carelessly on her hips as they under the comforter without any cloths...
After another memorable night, spending showering love on each other, they slept being tired due to the long flight... Riddhima thought to catch some more sleep but she couldn't go to sleep as someone knock hardly... Armaan groan in his sleep as he took a turn and hide his head under the pillow...
Riddhima open her eyes difficulty, hoping the knock would stop but soon it turn to a bang as someone was desperately waiting to be let it... Riddhima check the time to see it was 8 am, as it was Sunday she knows no one would wake before 9 am but she was surprise when someone keep banging on the door...
'Koan hai...' Riddhima said seeing how Armaan was getting disturb...
'Bhabsss...' Nikki's cheerful voice was heard behind the closed door...
'Kido...???' Riddhima whisper, not believing her ears...
Nikki was the most difficult one to get out from the bed in Sunday's but didn't know why, she was up before anyone else and it makes Riddhima worried thinking maybe she needs something... Riddhima quickly search for her dress which was forgotten last night in their love making...
'Bhabsss, phirse so gayi kiya...' Nikki again called her...
'Nehi Kido, main ut gayi hun...' Riddhima call as she wear her night dress...
'Very good, ab utgaye toh tayyar hokar neeche aao jaldiii...' Nikki said in an excited voice...
'Woh toh tik hai Kido, lekin tum itni subah kaise utgayi...' Riddhima asked finally she open the door to see Nikki, still in her night dress...
'Oh ho bhabs, dad ke kehne pe maine aapko raat koh disturb nehi kiya... Mujhe kitni saari baatein karni hai aapse, aur itni din se aapke haat ka yummy yummy breakfast nehi kiya toh main khud koh rokh nehi paayi... Please jaldi karo na bhabs, aapke khane ke baare mein sochke mujhe puri raat neend bhi nehi aayi...' Nikki said giving her super cute innocent smile...
Riddhima smile seeing how much excited Nikki was to have her back in home, seeing Riddhima smile, Nikki understood that Riddhima wasn't unhappy with her disturbance... Nikki knows, Riddhima would wake at this time usually in Sunday's as others wouldn't their comfortable warm beds before 9 am...
'I love you bhabs, I know aap gussa nehi hogi... Good morning...' Nikki said hugging her making Riddhima smile wide...
'Good morning, aur main kaise apne Kido se gussa ho sakti hun... Tum bhi fresh hojao, main bhi bas jaldi tayyar hokar tumhare liye, tumhari favorite breakfast banati hun...' Riddhima said...
'Aur main aapko entertain karungi tab tak, kyunki aapko sirf mere liye nehi, Dad ke liye bhi uska favorite breakfast bana na hai... I know dad kahenge nehi, aur mujhe aapko bhi kehne ki zarurat nehi hai kyunki aap khud sabki pasand na pasand jaante ho aur ussi hisaab se aap khana banaenge...' Nikki said...
'Kyun nehi, ek ke liye banaenge toh dusra bura maanjaenge aur yeh main kaise hone de sakti hun right...' Riddhima said as they break the hug...
'I know bhabs, issiliyeh main kehti hun you are the best...' Nikki said...
'Accha, meri tarif bohot hogayi... Let me get ready, phir main breakfast banati hun aur tum bas mujhse baatein karna...' Riddhima said...
'Ok bhabs, waise bhai abhi tak so raha hai...???' Nikki asked peeping in the room...
'Haan, tum jaante ho na woh Sunday's koh jaldi nehi ut te... Aur kal itni long flight ke baad, pata nehi kab utenge...' Riddhima said...
'Acchi baat hai, jab tak woh nehi ut te tab aap meri saath rehna...' Nikki said...
'Paagal, ab jao aur ready hojao...' Riddhima said...
'Haan bas abhi aayi...' Nikki said running back to her room...
When Nikki left, Riddhima closed the door and look towards Armaan... Knowing he wouldn't leave her the moment he open his eyes, Riddhima thought to spend some times with Nikki before Armaan wake up... Also she knows, Karan would want to spend time with her so Riddhima fresh up quickly and without waking Armaan, she left to the kitchen where she found Nikki already waiting for her...
AFTER AN HOUR
'Tum Dad aur Raina koh bhulao, main Armaan koh bhulati hun...' Riddhima said asking the servants to set the table as she was done making breakfast while talking Nikki...
'Ok bhabs...' Nikki said rushing out from the kitchen...
Cleaning her hands, Riddhima also move out from the kitchen as she make her way towards their room... Riddhima has a small smile on her lips as she remember how Nikki was asking for every details about her honeymoon...
Colors rush on her cheeks, remembering the honeymoon period with Armaan... Riddhima felt she was the luckiest girl as she got someone like Armaan, who loves her unconditionally... Armaan has make, every single day special for them and Riddhima never thought, he would be so romantic as she always wish her husband to be the most lovable person in the world...
Being lost in those days, Riddhima move to her room to get shocked to see Raina sitting near Armaan looking at him while he was in deep slumber... Riddhima didn't like the fact that Raina was in their room, that too when she wasn't there and Armaan was sleeping...
'Tum yaha...???' Riddhima asked when she saw how Raina was going to touch her husband...
Raina got startled with Riddhima voice, as she saw the door was open she had come to see Armaan sleeping... Raina stood outside to make sure that Riddhima wasn't before she move inside and it didn't take much time as Riddhima came back, catching her red handed trying to get closed to Armaan...
'Woh main...' Raina stood up quickly not being happy with Riddhima present...
'Main jaanti hun tum, Armaan ka friend ho... So friend tak raho, uske biwi banne ki koshish mat karo...' Riddhima said not happy to see Raina trying to get closed to Armaan, that too in her absent...
'I know Riddhima, tum itna gussa kyun ho rahe ho... Main toh bas Ammy koh utane aayi ti, kyunki mujhe apne dost ke saath tohda waqt bitana hai jaane se pehle...' Raina said with the most innocent expression...
'Tum jaa rahe ho...???' Riddhima asked not being sure if she had heard her right...
'Main bas Ammy se milne aayi ti, aur waise bhi main kaam chodkar aayi hun toh waapas toh jaana hai...' Raina said...
'Accha hai, zyada waqt kaam koh ignore nehi karna chahiyeh... Anyways tum breakfast ke liye jao, main Armaan ke saath aati hun... Dad aur Kido neeche hai...' Riddhima said moving to the bed...
Raina move away as Riddhima took the place which she was sitting a while ago, she felt her blood boil but control knowing she can't do anything in Riddhima present... So not having any other option, she left giving Riddhima a fake smile which Riddhima return with a forceful one...
When Raina left, Riddhima look towards Armaan who was sleeping with his mouth slightly open... Riddhima real smile form on her lips as she saw, how cutely Armaan was sleeping just like a innocent baby... Riddhima move her hand on his hair, ruffling it softly to make Armaan smile in his sleep...
Riddhima didn't want to disturb him but she knows, Karan and Nikki wouldn't have breakfast unless they didn't joins them... It was the only day that, they have meals together without hurrying as it's off day for all... In weekdays, they all would be in hurry so as soon as they get ready, without waiting for the other they would have their breakfast and leave...
Riddhima thought Armaan would wake, feeling her touch but seeing him just laid without moving a bit, Riddhima frown... It wasn't like him to be in so much deep slumber, Riddhima bend over him moving her lips closed to his ear to wake him slowly without startling him...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper his name still caring his hair...
'Hmmm...' Armaan reply as he snuggle in the pillow...
'Uto Armaan, Dad aur Nikki breakfast ke liye wait kar rahi hai...' Riddhima said moving a little away to look at his face...
'Five minutes love...' Armaan whisper, turning his face to the other side...
'Armaan, utona... Mujhe bhi bohot bhuk lagi hai...' Riddhima said shaking him a little...
'Tch, Riddhima... Tum jaakhe karlo, main baad mein karunga...' Armaan said not wanting to leave the comfortable warm bed...
'Armaan, u know na... Koi bhi humhare bina breakfast nehi karenge... Uto na, kal hi toh aaye... Tumhe sona hai toh breakfast karke sojaana... Koi disturb nehi karenge...' Riddhima said hoping Armaan would wake...
'I m tired, tum jao... Dad samajh jaenge...' Armaan said hiding his ear so Riddhima voice wouldn't disturb him...
Riddhima didn't like the fact that Armaan was denying, but she understood that he must be tired... Not being happy, Riddhima move out but got his cloth out so he could  get ready any time he wakes up... Still Riddhima hope that feeling her present missing, Armaan would wake up but when he didn't move an inch, her frown got deep...
'Tik hai, tum sote raho... Phir mat kehna jab saari breakfast khatam hojae... Maine sabke liye breakfast bana ya, ab khatam hogi toh main phirse nehi banaungi...' Riddhima said very well knowing how even Armaan is crazy for food cooked by her...
Hearing Riddhima not happy reply, Armaan open his eyes... Riddhima who didn't expect a reply from Armaan, left without giving a gaze to him thinking he was too tired to leave the bed for the food... Only Riddhima didn't know, her last attempt had manage to make Armaan wake up fully as he can never let anyone touch the food his wife cook for him...
Leaving Armaan, Riddhima joins others in the dinning area... Seeing her not happy expression, they wondered what happen but not seeing Armaan, Karan and Nikki understood that he must have deny which Riddhima don't like because it was the day, they have all the meals with each other...
It was decide by Riddhima, before she got married to Armaan as she would spend her Sunday's with them... So from that very day, they all would be in home on Sunday's and wouldn't leave the house until an urgent work comes which can't be ignore...
'Bhai nehi ute...???' Nikki asked...
'Tumne kaha usse, tumne breakfast banayi...???' Karan asked...
'Haan dad, but lagta hai bohot tak gaya...' Riddhima said serving to Karan...
'Bhabs, sad mat ho... Abhi aajaenge...' Nikki said smiling...
'Sawal hi nehi hai na aane ka...' Karan said smiling too...
'Haan, aisa toh hone nehi de sakte bhai... Bhabs ke banaye huve breakfast miss kare...' Nikki said...
'Koi kyun miss karna chaahenge, itna accha breakfast...' Karan said looking towards Riddhima...
'Dad, aap log takte nehi ho kiya meri tareef karke...' Riddhima asked...
'Kabhi nehi, kyunki tum world best cook ho...' Armaan said joining them...
Karan and Nikki smile when they heard Armaan, Raina who was sitting just playing with her food look towards him as Armaan move closed to Riddhima hugging her making Riddhima turn red... Riddhima make distance as Karan and Nikki were there, also Raina was with them to witness the closeness of them as she get burn inside to see Armaan being close to another girl...
Armaan took his seat and wait for Riddhima to serve him, Nikki and Karan has already started to have their breakfast as Riddhima serve them by the time Armaan has come... Karan and Nikki was right that Armaan wouldn't ever miss the breakfast or any other meal cooked by Riddhima...
'Dekha bhabs, kaise itni jaldi aagaya bhai...' Nikki said as he hurried attack the food when Riddhima serve him...
'Chalo ab tum bhi beito Riddhima, aaj itni din baad tumhare haath ka khana mila hai khane koh... Main toh full on enjoy karunga...' Karan said as he had the breakfast...
'Sach mein, itna accha khana sirf aap hi bana sakte ho bhabs... Bhai ne sahi kaha, u r indeed the best cook in the world...' Nikki said...
'Bas bhi karo Kido, khaate waqt zyada baat nehi karti...' Riddhima said smiling as she knew, they wouldn't stop praising her till the food get digest...
While everyone was praising Riddhima, Raina was boiling with anger seeing how much everyone loves Riddhima... Raina was just sitting, glaring at Riddhima as if her look might burn her to death but unknown to the storm, the Mallik's were enjoying their time together after whole two weeks Armaan and Riddhima being away to their honeymoon...
THREE MONTHS LATER
Everything was dark around, Riddhima was standing in the empty house with no light... Riddhima was shaking from head to toe as she look around with fear in her eyes, she was sweating badly from head to toe as she heard a scary sound making her heartbeat faster...
Riddhima could feel something moving around her but she wasn't able to see what it was as before she could see it, it keeps moving out of her sight... It keeps happening for like five minute, suddenly everything got quiet around her as if nothing sort of ever happen in the place...
Suddenly, a spot-light was on at the end of the dark corridor where Riddhima was facing... Again the scary noise started to boom around her making Riddhima shiver badly as she kept staring the light... Riddhima felt her breath got stuck in her throat the moment a shadow slowly move under the light...
Riddhima wanted to move away but she couldn't as she very well know what she was going to witness... It didn't take much time for the shadow to be clear in front of her eyes as she saw a lady in white cloth but her face was hidden behind her dark black hair...
'Riddhima...' A scary voice echo around the empty place making Riddhima scared the hell out...
Seeing the person in front of her, whose face can't be seen but only hear the scary voice, Riddhima felt her heartbeat stop as she shake due to fear... Riddhima felt her hands and legs getting cold as someone had pour cold water on her...
Not wanting to look at the person, Riddhima look around hoping to find someone else other than the lady in white cloth... Realizing that she was all alone, Riddhima felt tears form in her eyes as she try to call out Armaan, hoping that at least he would come to save her from this unknown lady...
'Ar... Arm... Armaa... Armaan...' Riddhima try to call his name but it came only as a whisper...
To control her cold shaking body, Riddhima joins her hands together, shutting her eyes tight... Wishing this to end soon and Armaan to come, Riddhima started to leave heavy breaths to keep herself calm... It did calm her for a bit but next sudden, she jump hearing that voice just closed near her ear as if the lady was just calling out her name on her ears...
'Riddhima...' The scary voice boomed in her ears...
'Armaaan...' Riddhima scream as she got hell scared hearing that scary voice so closed...
--------------------------------------------
Riddhima sit up on the bed as her eyes got wide open, she was shaking from head to toe with sweat beans visible on her forehead... Being scared of the dream, which she has witness from her own eyes from last two weeks, it has make her heart race fast banging it on her rib cage... Her breath was heavy as she felt suffocate realizing the light's were off in the room...
Before Riddhima could control her fast heartbeat and heavy breath, the light's were on... Armaan, who was working in the study came after finishing his work to see the room pitch dark... Armaan was confused to see the light's off as Riddhima get scared easily now a days if he is or not with her, than also she wouldn't dare to off the light...
Seeing Riddhima sitting on the bed, trying to calm herself down, Armaan understood that again the nightmare must have wake her... Armaan knows, she must have gone to sleep while waiting for him because she wouldn't dare to shut her eyes without him next to her...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call moving inside, closing the door behind...
Riddhima look towards Armaan with blank expression, she was too scared to think about Armaan whereabouts not finding him next to her at this hour of the night as it was past 1 am now... Seeing Riddhima blank expression, Armaan understood that how much disturb she was after having the nightmare...
No one understand, what has suddenly happen to Riddhima as from last two week she had been talking about some lady who wear white dress, roaming in the house... Till date, no one has seen the lady other than Riddhima but she kept saying after the night fall, she see her wandering around the house after everyone goes to their respective rooms after a hectic day...
Everyone was helpless seeing Riddhima condition getting worst day by day, not only in home but in her work place, she was seeing the lady in white dress... Armaan try to make her believe several time that it was just her imagination because she is scared to be in dark place but Riddhima started to get hyper when Armaan didn't believe her...
So to let her forget about it, they always try to spend much time with her... Also Armaan has ask her friends who work with her in hospital, not to let her alone in her free time because it was the time, she always see that lady as if she just wait Riddhima to be alone...
Armaan felt something fishy, that is the reason that he don't want to believe that the lady Riddhima keep seeing every where she goes, that too when she is alone isn't some ghost or spirit... Armaan thinks, it must be someone behind all this drama because he still can't digest the fact that Raina left from their life, without creating any problems...
Knowing he needs to reach the dept of the matter to save his Riddhima from the situation, Armaan try to make Riddhima and others also believe that it was just her imagination but things started to get worst as it was affecting Riddhima mind making her loose her mental condition as she started to get hyper not realizing how she behave sometimes...
Sometimes, Riddhima would just scream and push everyone away from her... Sometimes, she would just shut herself and not speak a single word to anyone about it as Armaan isn't ready to believe who Riddhima was seeing was real, not her imagination...
Soon the incident got affected in her brain that now she has started to see in dreams which turns out to be the worst nightmares of her life... Riddhima really could feel the moment but she knows, no one could understand her situation when her own husband wasn't ready to believe her...
When Riddhima didn't react to his voice, Armaan move next to her but before he could take her in his arms, Riddhima push his hand away and move down from the bed... Armaan sigh knowing she didn't want him anywhere near him but he can't also leave her like that, when she is too disturb...
Leaving Armaan, Riddhima move towards the balcony as she try to let the nightmare out from her brain... She knows, she wouldn't be able to sleep rest of the night but she don't want because of her, Armaan also stay awake when he has to go office the following day...
Even Armaan knows, Riddhima wouldn't be able to sleep but she don't want him to be bother by her as she knows he don't believe her... So to let him sleep, Riddhima move away from him and Armaan knows, she wouldn't utter a single word about the nightmare as she has started to keep it inside her...
Armaan don't want Riddhima to let herself get suffer as it was making her health condition weak, he move closed to her, standing behind her with his hands on Riddhima hips... Armaan touch make Riddhima startled but relax after sometimes, realizing it was only him...
'Riddhima, chalo sojaate hai...' Armaan said softly moving his face on her hair...
'Aap sojao, mujhe neend nehi aa rahi...' Riddhima said as she look outside, in to the dark night...
'Riddhima, main jaanta hun tum disturb ho... Lekin tum kab tak usbaat koh apne dhimag mein asar hone denge...' Armaan said...
'Aapko kiya lagta hai Armaan, main jaan bhujkar yeh sab kar rahi hun apne saath... Maanti hun, aapko meri baat ka yakeen nehi hai lekin main kyun jhut bolungi Armaan...' Riddhima said as she turn, creating distance between them...
'Riddhima, maine kab kaha tum jhut...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Toh aapko meri baaton ka barosa bhi toh nehi hai Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Kyunki jisse bhi tum dekh rahe ho, woh exist hi nehi karti Riddhima... Aisa koi nehi hai is ghar mein aur tum dekh rahi hai toh, yeh koi jaan bhujkar kar raha hai tumhe darane ke liye...' Armaan said...
'Koi kyun mujhe daraenge Armaan, sirf main toh nehi hun is ghar mein ek ladki... Nikki bhi toh hai, aur main toh is ghar ka bahu hun, beti nehi...' Riddhima said...
'Dad ke liye tum, uske beti ho... Mera biwi aur Niks ki bhabs ho... Tumhare kitne saare rishte hai is ghar mein, toh koi bhi tumhe hum sabse dur karne ke liye yeh kar sakti hai... Aur tum, woh jo bhi hai, uske plan koh successful hone de rahi ho...' Armaan said...
Without saying anything, Riddhima move to the bed because she knows, Armaan wouldn't be ready to believe what she is saying... That's why, Riddhima prefer not to answer Armaan as she knows if she did, than it would lead to a fight which she don't want..
Riddhima could clearly see how Armaan get irrirate when she started to tell him about the lady she see, every where she goes but Armaan think, it was only her imagination or someone playing a disgust prank on her so she would lose her mental condition...
Armaan has lost his anger seeing Riddhima craziness many times in last two weeks, that is why Riddhima has stop telling him, what's in her heart because she don't want to tell about it to anyone else... Riddhima knows, Karan and Nikki are also worried for her but she don't want them to see how weak she has become...
Knowing she wouldn't be able to sleep, still Riddhima laid back on the bed and close her eyes... Seeing how Riddhima just ignore, Armaan sigh and move to his side of the bed still looking at Riddhima... Armaan knows, she wouldn't be able to sleep but that was the only way that she could avoid talking about the nightmare...
So without saying anything, Armaan also laid next to her still not moving his eyes off from her until his eyelash got closed with sleep... Riddhima, who has her eyes closed could clearly feel Armaan gaze on her... When she was sure that now Armaan must have gone to sleep because of being tired, she slowly open his eyes looking his direction...
'Kash aap ek baar meri baat ka yakeen kare Armaan, kash main aapko apni darr share kar sake... Kyunki main jaanti yeh jo bhi mere saath ho raha hai, woh real hai...' Riddhima said as tears fall from her eyes being helpless as she wasn't able to prove whatever was happening with her, it was real...
FOLLOWING DAY
'Aapka nashta...' Riddhima said slowly as she serve Karan his breakfast...
Karan who was reading newspaper, pull it down looking towards Riddhima hearing her voice... Karan gave a small smile to her as she just kept her eyes low, which clearly show that she has spend another sleepless night like from last two weeks...
Nothing was like before from last two weeks, where they used to get to hear Riddhima's cheerful voice with a beautiful smile on her face to make their day bright early morning... Due to some unknown reason, Riddhima behavior has changed as she got quiet and would be lost most of the time...
It seems like, someone has snatch her smile and the happiness which they got after Nandini death... Armaan health was better now but it seems like now Riddhima was facing the same as her health were getting worst day by day due to some unknown lady, who Riddhima keep seeing in the house...
Riddhima has changed a lot in last two weeks but she still do her works which she took in the house taking as her responsibility... Before she used to do with a smile but now she do everything like a robot who has no feelings at all...
No smile, no more talking unless someone ask her something directly... Riddhima has create distance which neither Karan or Nikki like, they try their best to cheer up Riddhima but it seems like that nothing was affecting her other than that horrible incident...
Karan could clearly see how distance was create between Riddhima and Armaan as well because they had witness how Armaan get irritate whenever Riddhima mention about the lady... No one could understand what was happening because they didn't face anything that Riddhima was facing...
'Good morning bhabs...' Nikki joins them, breaking the silent...
Karan who was watching Riddhima working quietly, saw her giving just a nod to Nikki... Feeling Nikki gaze, Karan look towards her to get a helpless expression from his daughter, for not being greeted by her lovely sister in law... Karan just blink his eyes as if saying, give Riddhima some space to get back to her usual self...
Riddhima not uttering a single word, Riddhima serve Nikki making both father and daughter smile seeing how still she take care of every small thing about them after being so disturbed... Before Riddhima used to do with a smile which they missed now but now it seems whatever she do, she do it to keep herself busy from unnecessary things happen in her life...
When Armaan didn't come, Karan check the time and saw it was almost time for them to leave for work... When Riddhima didn't move to call him, Karan look towards Nikki who has started to have her breakfast as she has to go collage earlier today...
'Nikki, tum jaakar apne bhai koh bhulao...' Karan said breaking the silent...
'Bhai abhi tak breakfast nehi kiya...???' Nikki asked checking the time...
'Woh neeche aayenge, tab hi karenge na...' Karan said...
'Main bhulati hun...' Nikki was about to go when Riddhima stop her...
'Main dekhti hun...' Riddhima said as she stood up to leave...
Karan and Nikki smile as she usually would avoid their conversation, without looking towards them Riddhima left as their eyes follow her till she was out of their sight... When Riddhima was gone, Nikki look towards Karan as their expression changed to tension...
'Dad, I can't see bhabs like this...' Nikki said...
'Neither me, lekin samajh nehi aa raha kiya kare...' Karan said...
'Kuch bhi kare, lekin bhabs koh is pareshani se dur karna chahiyeh...' Nikki said...
'Aur woh hum dono akele nehi kar sakte, tumhari bhai koh bhi uski saath dena chahiyeh...' Karan said...
'Pata nehi kyun, bhai yakeen nehi kar raha... Kuch toh ho raha hai bhahs ke saath, jiski wajahse woh itni darti hai...' Nikki said...
'Hmm I think we should try and find out what's happening...' Karan said...
'Dad, ek baat toh sach hai ki koi hai jo bhabs koh paagal karne ki koshish kar raha hai...' Nikki said...
'Lekin koan aur kyun karenge woh aisa...???' Karan asked...
'Woh toh wohi bata sakte hai dad...' Nikki said...
'I just hope yeh sab haat se nikal na jaae, tumhari bhai bohot irritate hote hai jab tumhari bhabs aise react karte toh...' Karan said...
'Yeh toh galat baat haina dad, bhai koh bhabs ki saath dena chahiyeh... Bhai koh bhi yehi lagta haina, koi jaan bhujke aisa kar raha hai toh woh pata kare, na ki bhabs pe gussa kare...' Nikki said...
'Hmm, yeh baat Armaan koh khud samajhna hoga... Kyunki bas wohi hai, jo Riddhima koh is situation se baahar nikal sakte hai...' Karan said...
They talk about Riddhima condition while having breakfast, Riddhima reach to their room to see Armaan searching something in the wardrobe... Seeing the mess he has make, Riddhima didn't react like she usually do but move in catching Armaan attention hearing footsteps...
'Riddhima, mera blue file kaha hai...' Armaan asked as he kept checking the drawers in the wardrobe...
Without answering him, Riddhima who move in the room turn around and left... After sometimes, she came holding the blue file Armaan was searching as he had forget that he left it in the studies previous night as he was working late on it...
Armaan who was busy searching the file, stop when Riddhima put it in front of his eyes... Worried lines disappear from Armaan forehead, seeing the file and he quickly check it to see if everything was just the way he has arrange in it or not...
Before Armaan could say anything, Riddhima move away as she collected everything which Armaan has take out from the wardrobe in search of his file... Armaan who was about to thank her saw her working without giving attention to him...
So keeping the file, Armaan move towards her, taking her in his arms as he hugs from behind her... Riddhima didn't react as she just stood arranging things in the wardrobe, Armaan wasn't happy but didn't react knowing why she wasn't reacting the way she used to do before...
'Tum upar kyun aayi, chalo breakfast karte hai...' Armaan said kissing her hair...
'Aap jao, main aati hun...' Riddhima said without looking towards him...
'Riddhima...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Aapko der ho raha hai, aap jaakar breakfast shuru karo...' Riddhima said...
Knowing Riddhima wouldn't go with him, Armaan left kissing her temple as he collect his belongings... Before moving out from the room, Armaan stop near the door and look towards Riddhima whose back was towards him... Armaan sigh seeing how she has become so quiet and he wasn't liking it at all...
As Armaan don't understand what to do at the moment, he move out as he check the time and he didn't realized he got so late being busy searching for the file... So he quickly move downstairs to see Karan and Nikki, almost done with their breakfast and he was surprise to see Nikki ready to leave collage...
Mean while in room, Riddhima was arranging everything when suddenly she heard a voice which make she stop working... Riddhima closed her eyes tight and shut her ears so the voice wouldn't reach her mind... After sometimes, she slowly open her eyes and move her hand...
Hearing no voice but feeling someone present, Riddhima slowly turn around to see the lady in front of her near the door... Seeing the lady, Riddhima got startled as she move a step back hitting her back on the wardrobe... Riddhima started to shake as she get sweat from head to toe with her heart started to beat faster...
'Riddhima...' Riddhima got scared hearing the voice echo in the room...
Once again, she hide her ears and shut her eyes hoping that the person would vanished in front of her eyes... After sometimes, again Riddhima slowly open her eyes to get startled because the lady was standing just a few feet away from her...
Seeing the small distance between them, Riddhima didn't know how her voice got out from throat as she scream loudly being scared... Riddhima was too scared to think that any time the lady might get hold of her, she once again closed her eyes shutting it tight and scream as loud as she could being hell scared...
'Armaan... Armaaan... Armaaan...' Riddhima call as she let herself slide down against the wardrobe...
