Part 5 : it’s a love worth waiting for …



Riddhima’s sleep broke hearing someone’s banging on the door.at first she got scared then realized she was in arman’s house and her fear vanished in a while.she got up hurriedly and opened the door and saw kaka was standing there. kaka uttered : “beta,bahut time ho gaya hai isliye socha aapko utha dun.”

Riddhima uttered with a shy smile : “sorry kaka,pata nahi chala.bahut dino baad achchi need aayi.”

Kaka uttered smilingly : “beta,aapka room ready hai.chaliye aap wahin fresh ho jaiye.mai aapka breakfast lata hun.”



Kaka was showing her the rooms while riddhima followed him…”yeh neeche idhar humare sa’b yani balvinder bhai aur ananya bhabhi ka kamra…aur arman yani ammy baba ka kamra upar hai..aur idhar neeche aur rooms hain par ammy baba ko laga agar aap akeli dar jayein isliye unhone upar unke next room apke liye kaha hai…” he was blabbering continuesly. They came in the room then suddenly kaka realized something and asked : “beta,aapka saman kahan hai?”

Riddhima didn’t understand what to say .kaka saw her confused face and uttered immediately: “haan mujhe yaad aaya aap toh hospital me thi na? koi baat nahi,mai ammy baba se puchta hun aapke kapde aur baki saman agar la de toh..”

Riddhima uttered slowly : “unhen pareshan karne ki jarurat nahi kaka.”

Kaka uttered : “yeh kya baat hui bhai? Ghar me mehman ka khyal toh rakhna chahiye na? ananya bhabhi hoti toh ammy baba ko jarur dant pilati…bina kuch kahe aise hospital chale gaye..ab mai Buddha aadmi kya karun batao?”

Riddhima understood it was kaka’s habbit to talk much.she asked : “dr. arman hospital chale gaye?”

Kaka : “haan beta,subah uthkar apne ladle kutton ko nahlaya,khana khilaya aur phir gadi lekar nikal gaye.”

Then he looked at riddhima’s face and uttered : “sorry beta,meri toh bakbak karne ki aadat hai,aap fresh hokar neeche aa jao,mai breakfast ready karta hun.”

Riddhima nodded and came in the room.it was a big, decorated room. Riddhima saw there were so many photos of arman with his family. arman was looking damn handsome in those pictures. Her heart mocked her… “ tujhe koi haq nahi hai ab uski photo bhi dekhe.wo toh dr. nikita ke sath apni life me aage badh chuka hai.tu bas kuch din ki mehman hai yahan,phir tujhe jana hai yahan se.”

She sighed and sat on the bed. just then she heard kaka’s voice from outside : “beta,yeh ammy baba ka call hai aapke liye.”

She came out and saw kaka was standing with a mobile.riddhima asked confusingly : “yeh mobile?”

Kaka nodded and uttered : “mujhe bhulne ki aadat hai,aamy baba ne kaha tha yeh aapke liye hai..aapko jarurat hogi na?”
Arman,who was listening kaka’s conversation in mobile,uttered from other side : “kaka,riddhima ko phone dijiye aur apna bhashan band kijiye.”

Kaka uttered : ‘haan beta.”

And gave the mobile to riddhima. Riddhima took the phone and uttered slowly : “ji kahiye.”

Arman uttered : “ riddhima,us room me jo wardrobe hai,usme cloths bagirah hai,jo tumhe chahiye use kar sakti ho. Sham ko mai milta hun okay?”

Riddhima nodded and came in room and opened the wardrobe and surprised to see all are full of beautiful sari’s and salwar suit of her favourite colours. She amazed thinking that whose dreasses were those. She chose a pink colour salwar and went to freshen up.
………………..
After breakfast kaka took her in garden and uttered : “ammy baba ne kaha hai aapko humara garden dikhaun..aap bore honge na?”

Riddhima uttered : “kaka,aapko aur bhi kaam honge na,mai thik hun..”

Kaka uttered : “arey nahi beta,maine khana bana liya hai aur baki kaam maid karke chali gayi hai.chaliye..

They came in garden. Riddhima saw one side of the garden was full with beautiful flower plants and other side with some big trees where those doggys were playing. Riddhima got scared seeing them but kaka assured her : “wo kuch nahi karenge,ammy baba ne unhen bata diya hai ki aap bahut achchi ladki ho.”

Riddhima smiled sighly on his words. Sometimes they walked in the garden then riddhima came in her room. Kaka came and continued on his blabbering …
……………………………..
Arman kept his things in locker and was about to go but saw muskan was standing while blocking his way.he uttered : “bye muskan..
Muskan uttered surprisingly : “arey,kahan chala?”
Arman uttered : “I have to go muskan..”
Muskan uttered : “ mujhe thoda shoping karna hai,chal na mere sath.”
Arman uttered : “rahul ke sath chali ja muski..i am in a hurry.”
Muskan glared him and mocked : “aise bhag raha hai mano ghar me nayi dulhan intzaar kar rahi hai.”
Arman looked at her angrily and uttered : “kuch bhi bolti rehti hai tu ..
Rahul uttered from back : “wo pagal ho gayi hai arman.anyways,usey chod,bata riddhima thik hai na?”
Arman nodded and uttered : “thik hi hogi,mai toh subah hospital aa gaya tha.”
Anjali ,who was listening their talk,uttered : “arey,aise kaise? Beechari ko akele ghar me chod aaye,at least phone toh karna tha na?”
Arman : “actually mujhe laga agar riddhima kuch galat soche toh?”
Muskan muttered : “yeh ek mahan aatma hain,jinhe wo ladki galat samjhegi jo khud galat kar chuki hai..”
Arman glared her and uttered : “you know muskan,I don’t think tujhse mujhe koi baat karni chahiye,mai kitna pareshan hun ,mai hi janta hun aur tu is tarah taane maar rahi hai.”

Muskan uttered in a mocking tone : “pareshani tumne khud galey dala hai arman..

Arman uttered angrily : “toh tu kya chahti hai?riddhima ko police ke hawale kar dun ya sadak par chod dun? Mai abhi jakar usey ghar se nikal deta hun…kahunga ,bhad me jao..mere doston ko pasand nahi ki mai tumhara help karun…” saying he went from there without looking at anyone.

Muskan was numb seeing his anger while rahul ran to him to stop . he came to arman running and uttered : “arman,please aisa kuch mat karna,tu janta hai muski kitni pagal hai..agar ..agar tune aisa kuch kiya na ,toh mai…”

He thought a while then uttered : “mai muskan se sare rishte tod dunga..jis ladki ko baat karne ki akal nahi,I don’t want any relationship with her..”

Hearing it arman stopped,looked at him and uttered with a painful voice : “mai kya karun bata rahul? Mai riddhima ko is tarah akela nahi chod sakta..ekbaar uske husband ka pata chal jaye phir mai uske hawale kar dunga,par abhi kya karun bata?”

Rahul patted his shoulder and uttered : “tu kuch mat kar abhi..riddhima ko apne paas rakh and I am sure,wo dheere dheere sabkuch bata degi,phir usey jahan safety mile khud hi chali jayegi. Ja ab ghar ja,riddhima bore ho rahi hogi.”
Arman nodded and stepped to his car.
………………………………….
When arman entered in his house,saw kaka was busy in kitchen.he looked here and there and asked : “kaka,riddhima kahan hai?”

Kaka uttered : “apne room me hai beta,shayad so gayi hai..mai sara dopahar bakbak karta raha,beechari so bhi nahi payi..”

Arman smiled on his words and uttered : “aap bhi na kaka..ok,mai fresh hokar aata hun,please thoda coffee bana dijiye mere liye.

Kaka nodded and arman came in his room.he got freshened up and was about to go downstairs but saw riddhima’s door was opened. He thought may be riddhima woke up so came there and peeped through the open door but got she was sleeping while hugging the pillow. Arman came in the room on tiptoe and closed the window as the light from outside falling on riddhima’s face directly and she was making face in her sleep. arman saw her silky hairs were scattered over her face which was disturbing her sleep…she covered herself with the ‘chunri’ of that pink salwar which was perfect on her body and making her more gorgeous. Arman was not able to take his eyes off her face .he was standing there like a staue but suddenly riddhima turned and arman got his sense back.he afraid if riddhima saw him like this and takes it in wrong way but riddhima didn’t open her eyes only pulled the leg to her chest and curled in the bed as if she was feeling cold. Arman took a duvet,covered her and went from there without making a noise.
…………………
Riddhima’s sleep broke hearing car’s horn.she opened eyes and got the window was closed and she was covered by a duvet. She thought it was kaka,who done all these. She smiled remembering his blabbering the whole afternoon..sometimes he asked also : “beta,meri baton se bore toh nahi ho rahi?”

Riddhima nodded in na and it made him happy. He uttered : “achcha hua aap aa gayi,warna akele akele is ghar me lagta tha pagal ho jaunga..ammy baba ko toh apne mumma-papa ke ghar me na rahne se ghar ki yaad hi nahi aati…subah nikal jate aur der raat ko wapas aate hain..”
………………..
Riddhima heard arman’s voice and thought he is returned from hospital. She came in balcony and saw arman was coming with nikita and saying in a happy tone : “nikki!come come..waise bhi mai bore ho raha tha.”

Nikki uttered : “arman,tum aise kaise aa gaye hospital se? mujhe bataye bina? Aajtak aisa kabhi hua hai kya haan?”
Riddhima came in the room and washed her face and sat on the bed quietly. she didn’t understand why felt weird seeing nikita with arman…they were looking happy and perfect with each other but riddhima’s heart felt so much pain thinking about them. She now realized that she has dug her own grave ,no one was responsible for it. She had to pay for it and she knew she deserved it. A lone tears escaped her eyes , She wiped it immediately and thought to meet with dr. nikita..so came downstairs and got to know from kaka that arman and nikita was in the garden. She hesitated but kaka assured her : “jao na beta,ammy baba toh aapse baat karne ke liye jaldi aaye the aaj ,par aap so rahi thi .”

Riddhima nodded and came in garden and got they were sitting in the swing and talking slowly.she hesitated a bit and stood there silently hearing her name from arman… “nikki,mai kya karun batao? Mai riddhima ko ghar se nahi nikal sakta .its my responsibility…mujhe riddhima ke pati ko dhundhkar riddhima ko uske paas pahunchana hai..par muskan toh jaise mere peeche hi pad gayi hai..

Nikki : “tu muski ki baton ka bura maan raha arman? Tu janta hai wo dill ki kitni saaf hai,usey actually teri chinta hai..
Arman uttered sighly : “but I don’t like her talking style..mai janta hun riddhima ko jyada din yahan nahi rakh sakta ,but I think usey thoda time chahiye,phir wo khud hi bata degi sab kuch.and you know na uspar pressure nahi daal sakte ..
Nikki uttered : “you are right arman.bas uncle –aunty ke wapas aane se pahle sabkuch clear ho jana chahiye warna pata nahi riddhima ka kya karoge tum..usey bhi yeh baat samjhna chahiye,hai na?”

Arman heaved a long breathe and uttered only : “hmmm..

Riddhima couldn’t go there as her eyes started raining.she turned back and came in her room..she understood she should go from there …one day she had rejected arman and left this house on her own decision and now no one needs her …neither arman nor this house….

Love u all
punam
