EPILOGUE : Shikayat -season 2


Riddhima was admiring the sight in front of her as she enter Karan's room after finishing her afternoon chorus in the kitchen... An hour ago, she had been having lunch with everyone, Nikki has left to her room saying she needs to complete some project as it was her last year in university...
As it was Sunday, Armaan was also back to his room after lunch as Karan also left saying that he would take some rest but Riddhima very well knew it wasn't possible when Karan has company which he never would like to let go as much as possible if he could hold...
It has been almost 3 years to Armaan and Riddhima marriage, from last eight months every single person had their hands full with the little changed that happens to be another bless to them... Riddhima smile, how Karan just can't let go the little one who was now sleeping over his chest with his little thumb in his mouth, hands and legs spread either side of Karan body...
Riaan Armaan Mallik, who is just seven months old were the soul of their life who is the apple of his grandfather, prince of his aunt and champ of his father... His most favorite person in the family is of course his mother as he is the little hero of her but when his mother is busy, than he would be happy to spend times with his grandfather who would shower unconditional love on him just a little more than anyone else...

So when Riddhima was giving work to the maids and servants, mean time check what is left to do and what they could make for dinner, Karan had took Riaan with him and by the time Riddhima came to take Riaan for his afternoon nap, she got to witness that already Riaan was in deep slumber with his grandfather, who happens to fall asleep too while putting him to sleep...
The sight make Riddhima smile and she just couldn't help but capture the moment as it's a rare moment... Thinking to add the moment in their journey, Riddhima closed the door slowly without making any noise so the duo could sleep without any disturbance...
Smiling how her life has been so beautiful in last two years, Riddhima make her way towards her room... As she cross the hall to go upstairs, she came in front of the wall where they had hangs several frames with their families pictures...
It shows the journey from the beginning of the Mallik where Karan and Nandini start their life by marrying, till date where they had share every moment with the little one in the family now... The whole wall was cover from top to bottom as many pictures were hang as the most memorable moments were capture accordingly...
Being overwhelmed of the happiness in her life, she stood there admiring the beautiful journey... She didn't realized how long she stood but was brought back hearing Armaan calling her from their room as he couldn't find his files... Sighing and shaking her head thinking how one thing wouldn't ever changed no matter what, Riddhima move to the stairs to go and get what her darling husband want...
The moment she enter their room, she was left shocked seeing the mess Armaan had create in search of his so called important file... Last time when she left the room, it was tidy and now, nothing was in there place as Armaan has misplaced every single thing he could possibly move out from his way...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name as he stood with his back towards her near the wardrobe...
Hearing his darling wife not so happy voice, Armaan turn around with a innocent expression on his face... Riddhima didn't find it all innocent because he has mess every single thing and now it would take her another half an hour to arrange everything and put it in to their respective place...
Riddhima hardly get a single minute for herself whole day, specially on Sunday's as every single person would be in home... Also taking care of their few months old son always keep her on toes as he would need her any minute when she is around...
So being very much upset, Riddhima just put her hands on hips as she look around the room not understanding where to start and end... Armaan also look at the mess he has create unknowingly in search of his file, gave his most innocent heart melting expression which he knows Riddhima couldn't resist for long...
'Riaan ke tarah aise muh bana na band karo, aap bilkul bhi innocent nehi hai jitna dikhte hai...'Riddhima said as she step in the room, picking everything on her way inside...
'Jaani...' Armaan said, trying to butter her but was cut with Riddhima stern look...
'Don't even think of buttering me Armaan, hadd hoti hai... Aap kab samjhenge, din bar mujhe kitna kaam hota hai... Maanti hun aap help karte hai lekin tohda toh sochte kuch karne se pehle...'Riddhima said...
'Wohi toh karne ki koshish kar raha tha, I mean I thought to search for the file without disturbing you but...' Armaan stop seeing how Riddhima just ignore his explanation...
'Dikh raha hai, aap kitni acche se bina meri madad le apne file dhunda...' Riddhima said...
'Yaar main bhi kiya karte, mujhe kabhi samajh nehi aate tum kab kaha mere files rakhte ho...'Armaan said...
'Jo bhi important hote hai, woh aapke table pe ya wardrobe ke upar ke shelf mein hote hai Armaan... Ab toh aapko yeh pata hona chahiyeh...' Riddhima said arranging everything, before putting it on their respective places...
Armaan just ruffle his hair as he smile thinking how stupid of him, every single time whenever he ask for files Riddhima had been giving the same answer but still he couldn't help and be dependent on her for every small things... He knows her responsibilities has increased to many folds with their son coming more than anyone else in the house but till, he couldn't just do anything without her...
Realizing that even on Sunday, how she had to wake early and she haven't even sit for a second till than, Armaan thought to make her rest as he understood that Riaan must have be with Karan, probably sleeping as it would be the only reason that Riddhima hasn't bring him with her...
It's like a routine for Riaan to sleep in his grandfather room on Sunday afternoon so it would give some free time for his mother but till Riddhima wouldn't get much needed rest as she always has dozen of other works in her do to list...
So to make her relax for the time when their son is sleeping, Armaan left his work and move to Riddhima who was sitting on the bed arranging the papers which he has left here and there... When she was done putting everything in order, she stood up to be blocked by Armaan...
Without saying a single word, Armaan took the files and put it to the wardrobe upper shelf, mentally keeping it in his mind that where he has put it this time... Letting Armaan help, Riddhima started to pick up the cloths and towels left on the bed as Armaan had change after Riddhima has gone down and make also Riaan change his cloths after bath in noon...
Knowing Riddhima wouldn't just stop her work, Armaan move to the door and locked it before making his way towards her... Riddhima put the used cloths and towels in the laundry basket, than she got busy making the bed as she arrange the pillows and cushion which wasn't in its rightful place...
To make her stop, Armaan just came hugging her from behind making her startled as she stood straight after the bed was neatly made... Riddhima was thinking to go and take a warm shower knowing she could take her sweet time as Riaan was sleeping, got surprise feeling Armaan hugging her...
'Armaan, chodo...' Riddhima said, trying to break his hold...
'Uhun...' Armaan said nuzzling on her nape...
'Armaan, kiya kar rahe ho... Dekho main kitni gandi hun, subahse kaam kar rahi thi... I need to take a shower before your darling champ wakes up...' Riddhima said closing her eyes and controlling her fast heartbeat, feeling Armaan nose-tip caring her nape as his lips brushes on her skin...
'Haan toh chalo, I will help you...' Armaan said turning her but till not letting her go...
'Aap kyun, I mean aapne toh already shower le liya...' Riddhima said very well knowing what must be going in his mind...
'Don't act too innocent baby, I know you already understood why I m offering to help you... Ab toh sharmana band karo, humhare shaadi koh almost 2 years hone wala hai and we have make a beautiful charming son...' Armaan said trying to seal her lips...
'2 saal ya 10 saal, aap jab bhi mere paas aayenge toh mujhe apne aap sharam aati hai... Kyunki aapki asar kabhi khatam nehi hote mujhpe...' Riddhima said keep her hands on his chest to keep distance between them...
'Oye hoyye... Maanna padega aapko begum, har din aap mujhe aapko aur zyada pyar karne par majbur karte ho...' Armaan said touching his forehead against her...
'Aur main aapse...' Riddhima said...
'Pata hai, main khud hairaan hota hun... Kaise yeh mumkin hote hai ki har pal humhara pyar itna gehra hota hai...' Armaan said...
'Dil chahte toh kuch bhi na-mumkin nehi hote, woh kyun na pyar ho...' Riddhima said...
'Sahi kaha, issi pyar ke wajahse toh aaj mein itna khush hun apne zindagi mein... Nehi toh pata nehi kaise jee raha hoga jab mom ne saath chod diya...' Armaan said getting emotional...
'Mom ne kabhi aapka saath nehi choda, woh abhi bhi aapke saath hai...' Riddhima said...
'I know, kash woh aaj humhare beech hote... Kitna khush hoti, jaise usko chahiyeh tha waise huva... Usko hamesha se hi pehle pota chahiyeh tha...' Armaan said...
'Woh abhi bhi khush hogi Armaan, jaise woh chahti thi, waisa huva... Woh humhare beech ho ya na ho, har waqt humein dekhenge...' Riddhima said...
'Champ bhi uske dadi se utna pyar karega na jitna main karta hun apne mom se...???' Armaan asked...
'Kyun nehi, after all uske daddy ke mom hai... Kyun nehi karenge pyar, zarur karenge... Jitna woh apne dadu se karte hai, usse kahin zyada karenge...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin usse woh pyar mom se nehi milenge jo usse milna chahiyeh...' Armaan said...
'Kyun nehi milenge, dad pehle din se hum sabse zyada dugna pyar dete hai usse... Shayad issiliyeh kyunki woh mom ka pyar bhi de raha hai taaki humhare bete koh kabhi apne dadi ki kami mehsus na ho...' Riddhima said...
'I know, hum sabse zyada dad kitna khush hogaya yeh jaanke tum pregnant thi...' Armaan said...
'Main woh din kabhi nehi bhul sakti, itna khush maine dad koh kabhi nehi dekha... Haan yeh sach hai ki main is ghar mein aayi, tab bhi dad bohot khush tha lekin usse kahin zyada khush us din tha jab dad koh pata chala main pregnat thi... Jo news mujhe dena chahiyeh tha aapko aur baaki sabko, aapne aur dad ne mujhe di...' Riddhima said as smile form in her lips as they remember the day, which turns out to be another beautiful memorable day for them...


FLASHBACK START,

1 YEAR AND 3 MONTHS AGO
Riddhima was in kitchen, as she wasn't feeling too well she ask the maids to make dinner while she supervise them... From a month she wasn't feeling well and Armaan had make her visit the doctor along with him who had take sample to run some test...
As Riddhima has come from work early, she rest for some hours before coming down to check what they could make for dinner as it was already time for the gents to come... Nikki has gone out to a friend place to study but she has inform Riddhima that she would be back by dinner time...
So letting the maids cook, Riddhima was just watching them work... Everyone was busy in their respective work, with no gents and Nikki in the house, silent were around as rest of the people were doing their work without much noise...
Suddenly the silent were break with the loud noise, making every single person startled... Not understanding what was happening, Riddhima came out from the kitchen with maids and other servants also stop their work seeing some man's coming inside the house playing 'Dhol'...
Everyone single person was surprise with this sudden activity, not knowing who has let them in Riddhima move forward to stop them as she didn't like much noise at the moment when she was feeling uneasy... To her surprise, those man's surrounded her and didn't let her speak...
'Stop it...' Finally Riddhima shouted over the loud music...
To obey her, they stop playing as she just stare them waiting for answer to know who has send them... They kept smiling at Riddhima, who got more confused seeing them didn't bother to say a single word about their act as if they were send to entertain her...
'Arey bhai log, band kyun kiya... Bhajao...' Karan said getting their attention...
'Dad...' Riddhima whisper hearing Karan voice, she turn to look at the entrance...
Holding several shopping bags, Karan move inside as once again the 'Dhol' started... Dancing to the tune, Karan move to Riddhima with a big smile on his face... Riddhima was shocked to see this side of him but never the less were happy to see that bright smile on her father in law face...
Soon Armaan also joins Karan as both father son dance crazily as if they had won some lottery... Thinking it might be related to their work, Riddhima didn't stop them but to her surprise both kept dancing around her making her more confused...
After sometimes, when they got tired, Armaan paid those man's, who gladly accept thanking him before they left... Servants also went back to their respect work as the celebration end, Riddhima was about to go and get water for them was stop by Karan who took her in to a fatherly hug and kiss her forehead...
'Kiya huva Dad, aap aaj itne khush kyun ho...' Riddhima asked when Karan leave her and sit, but pull her by his side...
'Ab itni khushi ki baat hai toh khush kaise na ho...' Karan said still holding her close, with his arm around her shoulder...
'Accha, aise kiya baat hogayi...???' Riddhima asked...
'Thank you...' Karan said again kissing her temple...
'Thank you...??? Kis liye...???' Riddhima asked...
'Hum sabko itni khushi dene ke liye...'Karan said...
'Dad... Aap kiya bol rahe ho mujhe kuch samajh nehi aa rahi...' Riddhima said looking at Armaan...
Armaan was just sitting in front of them as he admire their bonding, smile wasn't leaving from his face either as happiness sparkle in his eyes... Riddhima raise her eyebrow, hoping he would clear her confusion but seeing him just too happy to speak out, Riddhima look at Karan hoping he would clear things for her...
Without answering her, Karan took one of the shopping bag and forward it to Riddhima... Not understanding what was happening, Riddhima hold it and took out the gift box... She look towards Karan, who asked through his head to go on and open it...
Riddhima look towards Armaan, being not sure but when he also ask her to open it through his eyes, Riddhima did as she was asked to do by the two gents... Still hell confused that what has happen to them, Riddhima open the gift and was left shocked seeing the small yet heartwarming thing in the gift box...
Soon her eyes started to get blur with tears but a smile make its way on to her lips as she softly care the gift... She felt her brain froze for a moment but when the reality slowly make its way to her sense, she look towards Karan who once again pull her in to side hug...
'Congratulation bacchi...' Karan said with a kiss on her temple...
'Dad yeh...???' Riddhima wasn't able to digest the news...
'Yes bacche, our little one would love his/her mommy the most...' Karan said, rubbing her arm softly knowing she was as happy as they were to know the news of little one arrival...
Riddhima just kept staring at the gift when finally, the tears left her eyes but she quickly wipes it as she admire the piece in front of her... It was very thoughtful of Karan that he got a newborn cloth which has a print on it of 'I Love Mommy' written on it... It was of grey color and a black outer lines...
Yes, Riddhima was pregnant and Armaan had share the news with Karan as he wanted to surprise Riddhima... That's why they had gone to do some shopping and they had arrange 'Dhol' to celebrate the happiness which soon would come to increase their happiness to many more folds...
Armaan and Karan has got some cloths and other needed stuff for newborn, Riddhima was happy that they didn't buy the whole store because it was too early to buy so much things for the unborn child... Riddhima just kept admiring the cloth Karan has choose for the unborn, it was just too cute...
Riddhima knows be it a boy or girl, their child would love Karan as much as he/she will love his/her father and mother... Riddhima found the writing on the cloths too adorable as one has 'I can melt my grandpa's heart. What's your superpower?' and other one has 'I hooked grandpa's heart'written in both white cloth...
All this time, Armaan just didn't speak a single word and kept watching Riddhima expression as he capture every single expression, deep down in his heart... The sparkle in her eyes, shows how much overwhelmed she was to know that they were going to bring another happiness in their family...
'Nikki kaha hai..???' Karan asked finally, realizing that in all these time, Nikki wasn't present...
'Woh apne dost ke ghar, padne ke liye gaye hai... Dinner tak aajaenge, aap fresh hojao dad... Main aapke liye chai aur snacks ready karti hun...' Riddhima said...
'Yes, I really need ur special tea...' Karan said as he stood up...
'Bas abhi bana deti hun...' Riddhima said smiling as she also stood up...
Once again kissing her forehead, Karan left giving some privacy to the, to be parents... When Karan was out of their eye sight and no one else around them, Riddhima quickly move towards Armaan, who happily took her in his arms, pressing his lips on her forehead giving a tight kiss...
'I love you...' Riddhima whisper, being happy that they are going to be parents...
'I love you too...' Armaan said rubbing his hands softly on her body...
'Thank you...' Riddhima said moving out from the hug...
'Kis liye...???' Armaan asked still holding her in his arms...
'Yeh moment itna special bana ne ke liye...' Riddhima said...
'You don't need to thank me, we did it together...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, main humhare bacche ke liye nehi bol rahi hun... I know yeh, hum dono ne milke kiya hai...' Riddhima said taking his hand and keeping it on her belly, with her hand over his...
'Phir...???' Armaan asked...
'Jis tarah aapne aur dad ne mujhe yeh news diya, yeh moment mere liye itna special banaya, uske liye... Aur yeh toh ulta hogaya na, mujhe aap log koh yeh news dena chahiyeh tha lekin aap log ne mujhe diya aur is moment koh itna special banaya, mere liye... Hum sabke liye, kyunki jitna mere liye khushi ki baat hai, aap sabke liye bhi hai...' Riddhima said...
'Haan toh tik haina, agli baar tum de dena... Waise mujhe bhi surprise mila, not because u r pregnant but tum bhi ek doctor ho... Tumhe kaise pata nehi chala...???' Armaan asked...
'Pata nehi kaise shayad itni busy thi kuch din se... Dhyan hi nehi raha ki, aisa ho sakta hai... Aur mujhe ab realized huva, monthly days bhi bohot late hogayi hai...' Riddhima said...
'Chalo koi baat nehi, mere liye accha hai kyunki mujhe isbaar chance mila tumhe yeh news dene koh...' Armaan said...
'Hmm so Congratulation to be daddy...' Riddhima said touching her forehead against his...
'Congratulation to u too, to be mommy...' Armaan said...
'Chaliye, aap bhi fresh hojao... Main tab tak dad ke liye tea aur aapke liye coffee banati hun...'Riddhima said getting out from his hold...
'Ek minute, maine bhi humhare baby ke liye kuch laya...' Armaan said still holding her...
'Armaan, kiya zarurat thi itni jaldi yeh sab...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan...
'Maine sirf yeh ek piece laya, baaki sab toh dad ne laya kyunki main jaanta tha... Tum itni jaldi yeh sab lene ke liye ready nehi hoga...' Armaan said smartly...
'Dad koh mana kyun nehi kiya phir...???' Riddhima asked...
'Mera baap hai, kaise mana karte... Aur tumhe lagta hai woh mere sunega... Dad ke excitement tumne dekha na, woh 'dhol' walon koh bhi dad ne bhulaya tha...' Armaan said...
'Hmm ab dad ne kiya hai toh kiya keh sakti hun...' Riddhima said...
'I knew it, issiliye toh nehi rokha...' Armaan said winking at her...
'Very smart...' Riddhima said smiling...
'I know...' Armaan said...
Soon Armaan got hold a shopping bag which was kept on his side and let Riddhima open it... Seeing what was in it, again a bright smile make its way on Riddhima lips, making her eyes shine... Riddhima care it softly as it has write,
'50% Mommy
50 % Daddy
------------------------
100% Perfect'
'Hows it...???' Armaan asked...
'Perfect...' Riddhima said looking at Armaan...
'Dad ne woh 'I Love Mommy' wala liya toh maine socha, main apne tarafse yeh le lun...' Armaan said...
'Bohot cute hai...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin tumse kum...' Armaan said kissing her cheek...
'Armaan...' Riddhima said looking here and there, as they were in the hall...
'Koi nehi hai dekhne ke liye...' Armaan said very well understanding why she was looking around...
'Accha ab aap jaake fresh hojao...' Riddhima said...
'Hojaungi, pehle batao... How are u feeling...???' Armaan asked...
'Ab reason toh pata chal gaya...' Riddhima said...
'Reason ki baat nehi kar raha hun main, are u still feeling weakness...???' Armaan asked...
'Haan...' Riddhima said...
'Toh tumhe araam karna chahiyeh thi na...' Armaan said...
'Main jaldi aakar araam kar rahi thi, aur dinner bhi maids banayi aaj... Bas aapke liye coffee aur dad ke liye tea bana deti hun, phir araam karenge...'Riddhima said...
'Aur tumne kuch khaya...???' Armaan asked...
'Nehi, mann nehi...' Riddhima said with a cute pout...
'I know that's your weapon to make me melt but it's not going to work at all... Not now when u have to take care of not only urself, u have to take care of two people now...' Armaan said...
'Haan toh, I will na... Aap...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan...
'Bilkul nehi jaungi jab tak tum juice nehi peeti...' Armaan said...
Armaan call one of the maid and asked her to bring fresh juice for Riddhima, he didn't let Riddhima move to the kitchen and make her sit back... Riddhima just pout seeing how Armaan was acting like a protective and possessive husband towards his pregnant wife...
When the maids come, Armaan took the glass and ask her not to let Riddhima do much work from now as she is expecting... Riddhima just groan hearing Armaan informing the maid not to let her work and update other maids also about it...
'Aur tum, dare u do anything until four months... U should be very careful, uske baad u can do cooking and little things around...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, main khud doctor hun... Mujhe pata hai mujhe kiya karna chahiyeh aur kiya nehi...'Riddhima said still holding the juice glass...
'Good for you, chalo ab yeh juice khatam karo...' Armaan said holding it and moving it close to her lips...
Knowing Armaan wouldn't leave until she finished her juice, making faces, Riddhima finished her juice... Mean while Armaan collect the gifts and took it with him to their room when Riddhima drank her juice like a good girl...
It was the starting of taking care of the pregnant lady, it continue still Riddhima delivery and Riddhima was one happy woman who was showered with so much love and care by her in laws... Be it her husband, her father in law or her sister in law... Every single person make sure that she was fine every second pass in her pregnancy phase...

FLASHBACK END
While thinking about those happy days when they were getting ready to welcome their baby to the world, Armaan and Riddhima fall asleep holding each other... They had a beautiful smile on their lips as they were in their own land, enjoying the phase of life being together with new addition in their life...

TWO HOUR LATER
Riddhima sleep was disturb hearing knocks on the door, she look at the time and it was going to be 4 pm... She jerk up, realizing that she has slept for two hours without any disturbance... Hearing Riaan voice, Riddhima understood that he must have wake up that's why Karan must have bring him...
Looking towards Armaan, who was sleeping on his stomach, Riddhima quickly left the bed as there was another knock... Riddhima open the door to see Karan standing holding a fully awake Riaan, who for some reason was craky and not happy to be with his grandfather, at the moment...
When Riddhima open the door and came in his view, he almost fell over Riddhima who catch him on time... Both smile seeing how Riaan hide his face on Riddhima neck and suck her skin, demanding for his feed... Riaan always do that when he is hungry, it was his way to let them know his tummy demands food...
'Aapko pareshan toh nehi kiya na...???' Riddhima asked rocking him slowly in her arms...
'Not at all bacche, mera Riaan, dadu koh kabhi pareshan nehi kar sakte...' Karan said caring Riaan head...
'Aapko kuch chahiyeh dad...???' Riddhima asked...
'Arey nehi, abhi nehi... Tum isse sambhal, Armaan kaha hai...???' Karan asked...
'So raha hai...' Riddhima said...
'Accha, tik hai utne toh kehna mujhe usse kuch baat karni hai...' Karan said...
'Ok dad...' Riddhima said as Riaan cry, to get her attention...
'Jao, nehi toh yeh pareshan hota rahega...' Karan said and patted Riddhima hair before leaving...
Closing the door, Riddhima move with Riaan, who was pulling her dress as he was too hungry to wait for long... Riddhima sit on her side and make him laid on her lap before adjusting her cloth which make Riaan cry thinking that she wasn't going to feed him...
'Arey meri bacche, de rahi hun na... Ek minute...' Riddhima said making herself comfortable and rising his head a little with her arm under his head so he could easily take his feed...
'Kyun ro raha hai mera champ...' Armaan asked getting Riddhima attention...
'Bhuk laga issiliye...' Riddhima said as Riaan hungrily kept having his feed...
'Toh itni der se kiya kar raha...' Armaan asked...
'Dad abhi laaya isse, main bhi sogayi thi toh jab dad ne isko lekar aaya tab meri aankhein khuli...'Riddhima said...
'Hmm...' Armaan said as he hold Riaan leg and kiss his small feet...
Riaan kick his leg in the air, making Armaan let go of it because he didn't like disturbance when he is busy in his meal... Knowing how it irritate the little one, Armaan move close to him and hug him along with Riddhima as he hide his face on Riaan back...
Riddhima smile seeing how Armaan wasn't ready to leave Riaan knowing how much he get irritate whenever anyone disturb him in between his feed... Leaving Riddhima, Riaan look at Armaan as he push Armaan head as if challenging not to disturb him with a cute frown on his face...
Riddhima giggle seeing the two guys in her life, having a silent war... Riaan went back to his business making Armaan chuckle with his daring expression... So kissing his back, not daring to disturb him further, Armaan move back on his side giving him much needed space...
'Armaan, woh dad koh aapse kuch baat karna tha...' Riddhima said seeing again Armaan close his eyes...
'Abhi...???' Armaan said checking the time...
'Nehi, kaha jab aap utenge, tab bata dena...' Riddhima said...
'Main dekhta hun...' Armaan said as Riddhima was busy with Riaan...
Riddhima just nodded as she feed Riaan, who was moving his hands and legs, not being able to stay quiet for a second... When Riaan finished, Riddhima took him to change his nappy and cloth... By the time, Armaan has come back so letting him handle Riaan, Riddhima went to take a shower so she could get ready something for them as they always have something before dinner...

5 MONTHS LATER
Everyone was singing 'Happy birthday' for Riaan as today he has turn one year old... It was just only the Mallik's as they were in their farmhouse, where they always celebrate special occasion... They just wanted to make Nandini a part of every occasion they celebrate so they would always come farmhouse in such days...
As it was another special occasion, they were back again and it was Riaan second visit to his grandmother favorite place... When Riaan was born, first one week they spend in farmhouse... After that, they didn't get a chance and Riaan being too small, they didn't feel to travel but Armaan and Karan take time to visit the place in between...

After cutting the cake, everyone feed Riaan making him eat the delicious cake who enjoyed the new taste... Nikki put some nursery rhythms to which Riaan got excited, clapping his small hands... Karan took him from Riddhima as Nikki joins them, dancing making Riaan laugh out loud...
Riddhima was admiring them, how Nikki and Karan loves Riaan so much... Riddhima turn around, not feeling Armaan present... As expected, Riddhima found Armaan standing in front of Nandini photo... Letting Nikki and Karan enjoy with Riaan, Riddhima move knowing Armaan must be missing his mother...
'Mom ki yaad aa rahi hai...???' Riddhima asked, getting Armaan attention, holding his arms...
'Bhula kab...' Armaan said looking towards her...
'Bhulna bhi nehi chahiyeh, lekin aaj kuch zyada yaad aa rahi haina...' Riddhima asked...
'Hmm...' Armaan said...
'Koi baat nehi, hum sab haina... Aur mom bhi toh hai, humhare dil mein...' Riddhima said keeping her hand on his chest, near his heart...
'Hamesha...' Armaan said, holding her hand which was on his chest...
'Mom kitni khush hogi na, humne Riaan ke first birthday yaha manaye...' Riddhima said...
'Bohot...' Armaan said...
'Lekin dukh bhi hogi...' Riddhima said...
'Kyun...???' Armaan asked...
'Uske bete, usse itna zyada miss kar raha ki woh apne bete ke birthday ke saara fun miss kar raha hai, issiliyeh...' Riddhima said...
'Aur pata hai, mom kis baat se khush hogi...' Armaan said pulling Riddhima in his arms...
'Kis baat se...???' Riddhima asked, keeping her hand on his chest, to keep distance between them...
'Uske bete koh itna accha biwi mila, jo hamesha uske bete ke mood tik kardete hai... Itni acche tarahse samajhta hai kab usko, uski zarurat hai...' Armaan said...
'Woh toh hai...' Riddhima said...
'I love you...' Armaan said letting his forehead touch against her...
'I love you too...' Riddhima said...
'Chale...' Armaan said kissing her temple...
Riddhima smile and kiss his cheek, making him show his dimple as they went back to joins Karan and Nikki... When Riaan saw his parents, he open his arms to them... Armaan move ahead and took him in his arms, Nikki move Riddhima as she dance with her making Riaan laugh seeing his mother and aunt dancing for him...

THREE YEARS LATER
'Congratulation mom, phirse aap dadi bangaye... Isbaar poti huvi hai...' Armaan was talking Nandini photo, in their farmhouse as he hold, three days old daughter, neatly cover in fluffy white blanket...
Armaan and Riddhima was bless with a daughter and they had come to visit Nandini first thing when Riddhima and the baby got discharged from the hospital... Armaan had drive them to the farmhouse while Karan would be coming with Nikki and Riaan...
Taking blessing from Nandini, Armaan move to the hall to see Riddhima sitting with her eyes closed, sitting comfortably on the couch, with her legs stretch out... As the baby cry, Riddhima open her eyes to see their princess wake up after a good three hours sleep...
Knowing she would be hungry, Armaan gave her to Riddhima and sit next to her, letting Riddhima rest her back on him still sitting in same position... Riddhima check the time and start to feed her, relaxing as Armaan softly care her arms...
'Riaan nehi aaya...???' Riddhima asked, closing her eyes again...
'Bas aajaenge abhi, tum kamre mein kyun nehi gaye...' Armaan asked...
'Riaan koh dekhlun, phir main araam karlungi...' Riddhima said...
'Riddhima, bas aaj toh nehi mila usse... Aajaenge abhi tohdi der mein...' Armaan said...
'I miss him so much Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'I know Riddhima, but u know na, it wasn't possible for me to drive with two kids when u aren't fully fit yet...' Armaan said...
'Hmm...' Riddhima said...
'We should have wait till for sometimes na...' Armaan said...
'Kyun...???' Riddhima asked...
'You aren't too well this time... Itni der tak pain mein tha, uski baad deliver huva...' Armaan said...
'Main tik hun Armaan, aur jo hum follow karte hai. main nehi chahti meri wajahse woh badle...'Riddhima said...
'Lekin tumhari tabiyyat...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Aap hona, I know aap sambhalenge...' Riddhima said snuggling in his arms...
Armaan kiss her hair and let her relax because once their son come, he wouldn't let Riddhima rest for a second... Riaan was very happy to welcome his baby sister, he wish to be by his mother and sister side all the time but somehow, Armaan manage to take him home as Riddhima needs rest...
As today Riddhima got discharge, Armaan has take her to the farmhouse... Riaan was in home with Nikki and Karan as they didn't go to hospital today, it was decide that they would to come farmhouse... Silent were in the place until Riaan voice echo, breaking it...
Riddhima cover herself properly as baby has finish taking her feed, they look towards the door to see Riaan run inside with his best smile... Soon he was by their side, before he could jump on Riddhima, Armaan hold him making him sit on his lap...
'Hey champ...' Armaan said kissing his hair...
'Daddy...' Riaan call him but look at Riddhima, who was holding his baby sister...
'Miss u hero...' Riddhima said caring Riaan cheek...
'Miss u mommy...' Riaan said leaning forward, kissing Riddhima cheek...
'Daddy koh miss nehi kiya...???' Armaan asked with a puppy face...
'Sabse zyada... Mommy koh... Miss ki... Phir baby... koh... Aapko bhi ki...' Riaan said...
'Accha bacchu, behen kiya milgaye, daddy number 2 se 3 hogaye...' Armaan said tickling his tummy...
'Haha daddy... Hahaha no...' Riaan said trying to push Armaan hands away...
Nikki and Karan enter to witness the cute scene, where Riddhima sit holding the newborn, Armaan tickling Riaan who was laughing out loud, trying to free himself from Armaan hold... Nikki move ahead and took the baby from Riddhima, Karan sit next to Riddhima while Nikki took the seat in front of them...
Seeing Nikki holds the baby, Riaan finally free himself from Armaan and sit next to Nikki... Karan asked about Riddhima health as she was looking very weak and pale unlike the previous time... Karan asked Armaan to take Riddhima up to their room, so she would get some rest...
Riddhima refused as she wants to stay there for sometimes with all, so letting her be with them, Karan move to Nikki, taking the baby in his arms... Riaan demand to hold his sister so Karan make Riaan sit on his lap and than again hold the baby with him...
Sensing Armaan being quiet, Riddhima look towards him to see Armaan looking towards Nikki, Karan, Riaan and their newborn baby girl... The smile on his lips shows, he was happy to witness the sight... Riddhima hold Armaan hand. getting his attention...
'Kiya soch rahe ho...???' Riddhima asked...
'Yehi ki, yeh sapna toh nehi... Kaise zindagi itni khubsurat ho sakte hai...' Armaan said...
'Life is full of unexpected things, aur yeh zindagi ki aise phase hai jaha mushkilon ke baad khushi mil raha hai, SHIKAYAT hone ke baad bhi, aapne sach koh accept kiya aur move on ki, iski result hai ki aaj aapke zindagi itni khubsurat turn li...' Riddhima said...
'Kab tak SHIKAYAT karte. jo khoya woh toh milenge nehi toh kisbaat ka SHIKAYAT...' Armaan said...
'Issiliye god ne aapke liye, uske badle mein itna saara khushi bheja... Taaki aapko us loss ka ehsaas na ho...' Riddhima said...
'Mom saath na hone ki ehsaas hamesha rahega, lekin yeh baat sach hai ki na hokar bhi woh paas hai...' Armaan said...
'Aur hamesha rahenge...' Riddhima said...
Armaan kiss Riddhima forehead as they look towards their happy family, true they would always miss Nandini in their life but they were happy... Happy with the new additional in their family, which make their family complete with two beautiful souls...
