Part 1 : Sab Mera Tu (season 2)


'MY DREADFUL PAST'

After one year 

In a flight to Goa @11:45 PM

"Are you sure yeh wahi hai..??" a girl whispered to another girl who was sitting beside her seat
"Haan.. Dekhna dhyaan se.. Yeh Armaan Malik hi hai.." staring him dreamily she whispered in low voice which made the first girl to looked at him dazedly, Armaan was sitting in other side of the flight busy wd a magazine (Actually it was luxury class were very few passengers were sitting)
"Haan.. Wahi hai yaar.. Par yeh toh California mein tha naa??" she looked at the second girl who was quietly taking his picture on her phone
"Kya pata India aaya ho.. Apne agle Concert ke liye.." in very low voice she whispered after taking his picture
"Wow.. Yaani hum Armaan Malik ka concert dekh paayenge Goa mein.. Cool" first girl spoke excitedly which made other girl giggle and they both looked back Armaan who was calmly reading the magazine, wearing a black jacket wd gray t-shirt underneath and olive green pant wd snickers he is looking handsome! His goggle was kept on his thigh while his eyes were calmly fixed on the magazine unaware of peoples eyes which were only fixed on him... He was about to turn a page when he heard something which made him stiff


"Shilpa.." his eyes lifted as he heard someone taking the name which made his heartbeat skipped who looked up at the voice "Why don't you take care of here.. I'll be back in two minutes" a male waiter told an Indian airhostess who giving nod in Yes smilingly moved ahead towards the passengers and as he saw her face his heart sank coz somewhere he wanted to see someone's face
"Main bhi naa.. Kuch bhi soch raha hoon.." looking out of the window he thought while keeping the magazine aside "Come on Armaan.. Kuch aur soch.." he smacked himself mentally while calming his heart when
"Sir you want anything..?" hearing a polite voice he looked up only to find that same airhostess named Shilpa
"No.." giving a small polite nod in No he looked away from her coz he saw the name tag near her shoulder who wd a smile moved ahead "Ek naam hi toh hai Armaan.. Ismein zyada sochna kyun.." rubbing his forehead he tried to calm himself but it only made his mind to remember her 'Ek baat yaad rakhna Armaan.. Is duniya mein agar koi tumse sabse zyada pyaar karta hai vo bhi sacche dil se.. Toh vo main hoon.. Aur main yeh bhi jaanti hoon ki kabhi naa kabhi tum bhi wahi feel karoge jo aaj main kar rahi hoon' he closed his eyes as her words rang inside his mind who looked outside the window where he only saw darkness coz of night and watching the dark sky her last words came back again inside his head 'Mera sab kuch ho tum.. Par shayad main tumhaari kuch nehi.. I am sorry agar kabhi hurt kiya ho toh.. Sorry.. Accha Chalti hoon.. Duaaon mein yaad rakhna..' closing his eyes he rubbed his face coz her last scene flashed in front of his eyes who was trying to grip the tensions inside him "Isiliye main kabhi yahaan wapas nehi aana chaahta tha.. See sirf ek naam se hi itna asar pad raha hai.." he thought wd calm look while staring outside the window lostly but again her smiling face flashed inside his head "Gosh..!!" taking a sigh he looked away and taking out the laptop he started diverting his mind which not at all worked instead it made him more think about her so closing the laptop he picked another magazine to focus on something else but as he saw the front page of the magazine a smile curved on his lips "Dad.." wd a smile he watched the front page on which Ronit's pic wd Ram & Sid were printed wd the heading 'This year's No 1 Businessmen partners' but he frowned coz there was no Shilpa in the picture wd them so he immediately read their story and it was strange for him coz there was nothing about Shilpa not even they mentioned "Aise kaise Shilpa ke baare mein kuch nehi likha.. Vo deserve karti hai.. In fact sabse zyada.." he thought while turning the pages frowningly when his eyes stopped on a pic which was of Ronit who was smiling in it and he readed his interview on which he said about him 'I am enough to handle this business and my sons are doing what they always wanted to do.. I don't think that i need anyone.. And about Armaan he is busy in his life.. So i don't want to bother him' he immediately put that aside calmly and put his back completely on chair then looked outside the window wd his hand near his lips (Dekha mom Dad ko lagta hai main busy hoon life mein apne.. Vaise vo sahin bhi hain apni jagah aaj tak maine konsa ek acche bete ka farz nibhaaya hai.. Par jo chiz nehi samajh rahi hai vo yahaan kyun Shilpa ke baare mein kuch nehi tha jab ki vo sabse kaabil hai pure office mein.. Par tu kyun soch raha hai uske baare mein, tere hisaab se toh tu move on kar chuka hai phir kyun farq pad raha hai tujhe, ignore kar.. Par main kab tak ignore karunga yeh sab aur konsi life k liye jismein kuch nehi hai.. Gosh!! Mera sar dukh raha hai ab) he closed his eyes to calm himself but it only took him in flashbacks (Mom yeh sab aapki wajah se ho raha hai naa aap jaati naa aaj main aisa hota, aapne toh kaha tha jab rockstar banunga tab puri duniya haath mein rahegi meri aur main khush rahunga par dekho aaj itna sab haasil karne ke baad bhi main andar se chah kar bhi khush nehi ho raha hoon..Par main bhi Armaan hoon itni jaldi haar nehi maanunga chaahe kuch bhi ho jaaye main past se bhi lad lunga) wd a phlegmatic look he watched out of the window wd his hand near his chin (Par.. Kisine yeh bhi sahin kaha hai.. Aap kissi se bhi bhaag sakte ho lekin apne past se kabhi nehi bhaag sakte.. Aaj pure ek saal baad woh naam sunna jisse main kabhi nehi sunna chaahta tha, jisse bahoot dur aa gaya tha par phir kyun aaj wapas dimaag mera peeche mudke dekhne ki koshish kar raha hai.. Godd! Kab khatam hogi yeh struggle meri is life ki jahan sab kuch hote huye bhi kuch nehi hai, sab hote huye bhi koi nehi hai, I am missing you again Mom.. Kaash aap hote toh yeh problem hi nehi hoti meri life mein aaj) his eyes were glued on the sky while his mind was playing the past inside his head (Mom mujhe ab main bilkul pasand nehi hoon kyunki yeh Armaan bahoot akela hai andar se, i am sure aapko bhi yehi lagta hoga kyunki aapka waala Armaan toh sabke saath involve rehta tha, khud bhi khush rehta tha aur dusro ko bhi rakhta tha, unlike me jo is khubsoorat zindagi se bore ho gaya hai..) he thought wd his eyes fixed on the darkness (Zindagi bhi kitni ajeeb chiz hai kissike paas sab kuch hote huye bhi kuch nehi hota aur jiske paas kuch nehi hota uske paas sab hota hai.. Jaise meri life jo humesha se aisi toh nehi thi.. Ek alag hi Armaan tha main sabki importance milti thi mujhe aur kyun nehi milti ghar mein tab tak akela jo tha.. Main humesha se mom-dad dono ke close tha par zyada mom se kyunki vo meri bestfriend thi aur thoda bahoot Gautmi aunty ke kyunki vo bhi mujhe utna hi pamper karti thi jitna mom, vaise zyada kuch yaad nehi thik se mujhe kyunki uswaqt main bahoot chota, par jitna yaad hai shayad mujhe khelna bahoot pasand tha aur masti karna bhi, mom ka dance dekhna accha lagta tha, aur Malhotra khaandaan ke do chiraago ko pareshaan karna acha lagta tha yaani Sid aur Shilpa... Jinse meri koi khaas dushmani nehi thi par jab bhi main unko khelne ke liye bulaata vo mana kar dete specially Shilpa jisse pata nehi kya problem thi mujhse, vo ek aisi person thi jisse main bilkul pasand nehi karta tha bachpan mein haa yeh baat alag hai ki main kahin naa kahin chaahta tha ki vo dono bhai behen mere saath khele aur hum acche friends bane rahe kyunki hum saath mein jo rehte the par un dono ko yeh manzoor nehi tha.. Sid darta tha Shilpa se ki agar vo dekh legi main Sid ke saath khel raha hoon toh sunaaygi usse isiliye hum choop kar khelte aur main uspe hasta, bachpan se hi Shilpa mere liye complicated thi kyunki vo itna chidti naa mujhse ki pucho mat aur main samajhne ki koshish karta ki isko problem kya hai mujhse par itna toh main jaan gaya tha ki vo mujhe pasand nehi karti thi, Lekin yeh chiz mujhe aur maza dene lagi so main usse jaan bujhkar annoy karta.. Main uswaqt itna masti karne mein busy rehta ki yeh bhi dhyaan nehi tha ki ghar mein kya hota tha vaise baccha tha main toh itna expect kar sakte the, like jab hume hostel bhejne ka plan huaa main pehla aisa baccha tha jo bahoot khush huaa hoga yeh sunkar, coz for me it was freedom, mujhe lagne laga ki ab main zyada masti kar paaunga aur koi rok nehi paayga par kya pata tha ki vo khushi sirf kuch palo ki hogi.. Hume isliye hostel bheja gaya tha kyunki dad ke business mein kuch loss tha, humpe effect naa kare isliye hostel bheja gaya hume, Main toh bahoot khush tha baaki un dono bhai behen ko problem thi, but mujhe yeh bhi pata hai agar main Zid karta Dad se ki mujhe hostel mat bhejo toh vo nehi bhejte yeh baat main 100% surity ke saath keh sakta hoon par uswaqt yeh baat realize nehi ki kyunki khush jo tha.. Kash realise ho gaya hota toh aaj itna akela nehi hota main.. Mujhse sahin toh Shilpa aur Sid the jo itna ro rahe the ki abhi bhi hassi aati hai sochke, especialy Shilpa jiski rone ki awaaz pure school mein sunaayi di hogi i am sure.. Shuru shuru ke din mere hostel ke khushi ke ban gayye the par jaise jaise time guzra mujhe Mom ki yaad aane lagi aur phir mujhe realise huaa main yahaan nehi reh sakta but yeh baat maine Sid ko realize hone nehi di yeh soch kar ki vo hasega, vaise Sid ne jaan bujhkar mere class mein entry li kyunki usse bhi bada banana tha meri tarah, Shilpa apne class mein kaise rehti thi mujhe nehi pata par haan agar galti se kabhi vo mil jaati school mein toh main usse pareshaan karta kyunki usko tang karne mein apna hi maza tha... Main jab vacation ke liye ghar jaata, Main mom se yehi kehta vo kab mujhe bulaayngi wapas aur vo kehti jab main ek accha student banke aaunga tab, Meri mom sabse alag thi unhe classical dance ka bahoot shauq tha par sirf ghar sambhaalne ke chakkar mein unhone chod diya tha vo sab, main itna toh samajh gaya tha ki unhe dance accha lagta hai aur samajhta bhi kyun nehi 7th mein jo aa gaya tha uswaqt tak toh Swayam bhi ho gaya tha toh mom usmein busy rehti aur main hostel mein aakar khudko busy karta yeh sochke ki jaldi time guzre, in sab mein mera favorite job yeh ho gaya tha ki main Shilpa ko tang karun, kyunki baaki school ki ladkiyo se zyada main baat nehi karta tha aur Shilpa hi vo ek ladki thi jisse main jaanta tha toh uske saath mazak normal tha, Mujhe toh pata bhi nehi chala ki kab usse tang karte karte mujhe usse pyaar ho gaya yaah phir crush, kya tha vo mujhe khud nehi pata tha.. Mujhe is baat ka realise tab huaa jab main 8th class mein tha aise hi ek din football khel raha tha aur meri ball jaaker Shilpa ke sar par lag gayi jo vahan se jaa rahi thi, usse bahoot chot aayi thi kyunki vo neeche ek patthar ke paas gir gayi thi aur ro rahi thi mujhe uski fikar si hone lagi in fact jab usnein mujhpe chillaaya toh bhi kuch nehi kaha maine, Ritvik ne kaha bhi ki kuch bola kyun nehi maine and at that time i realized i love her... Uske baad se meri nazre usse hi dhoondhti haan yeh baat alag hai ki mostly usse pareshaan karne ke liye, main chaahe kitna bhi busy rahoon agar Shilpa dikhi naa toh pareshaan karna toh banta tha like aisa hi ek din tha vo jab maine usse ussi ke class mein pareshaan kiya tha
Flashback
"Dekh.. Ritvik late nehi karna hai.. Kyunki main kuch bhi miss kar sakta hoon football nehi.." he spoke in hurried voice as they were passing the corridors
"Haan.. Toh main konsa tere pair pakad ke baitha hoon.. Chalna.." making a face Ritvik retorted which made him chuckled who pulled him in a side hug and they both started walking in speed coz they were late for football match, he was passing when his feet automatically stepped back as he passed the window of Shilpa's class room "Tujhe pata hai.." but Ritvik's sentence left incomplete as he found himself walking alone which made him frown who looked back for Armaan but left confused finding him looking inside Shilpa's class room from the window
"Lazyyy duck.." he smiled as he saw Shilpa sleeping while putting her head on her hands (Mujhe Shilpa ko zyada dhoondhne ki zaroorat nehi padti thi.. Vo hazaaro bheed mein bhi dikh jaati thi.. Kyunki uski harqate hi alag thi sabse) "Oyyye.. Punjaban.. Ek paper dena" slapping lightly on Dhrasti's head he demanded in low voice which made Dhrasti angry who was sitting beside the window bench wd Sukirti who giggled watching them
"Tere baap ki naukraani nehi hoon.. Jaa yahan se varna Mam se bolungi.." pointing her index finger at him she warned in her Punhaabi ancient
"Baap pe gayi naa.. Toh teri naak kaat dunga.. Chup chap de.. As a GS maang raha hoon" he argued which made her more angry when Sukirti noticed the teacher who was coming towards them, actually they were sitting on last row of last bench that's why their teacher cannot see them
"Accha accha yeh lo.. Aur jaao varna mam gussa karengi.." Sukirti immediately tore a blank paper from her book and gave that to him who smiled widely while Dhrasti smacked Sukirti on her arm scolding her (Dhrasti uski aisi dost hogi jisse main bilkul pasand nehi karta tha.. Actually mujhe uski girls gang hi nehi pasand thi.. Except Sukirti she was soft spoken)
"Learn something from her.." saying this smilingly he smashed the paper in a boll and hide behind the window as he saw the teacher walking on last row
"Tu kar kya raha hai..??" Ritvik asked confusedly as he saw Armaan looking inside the class on the Shilpa wd a smirk
"Tu bas dekhta jaa.." he said smilingly while pointing the paper boll on Shilpa and before Ritvik Sukirti or Dhrasti could stop him he directly threw the paper on Shilpa who woke up in a jerk as the boll hit her nose
"Dekh kya kiya isne" Dhrasti scolded Sukirti who looked up at Armaan for answer which made Ritvik giggle watching Shilpa's perplexed face
"Vo kya haina.. Class mein padhne aate ho tum log.. Sone nehi" as he said this coolly three of them looked at Shilpa who was looking around angrily for the person who hit her wd the paper even Surbhi also
"Yeh kisne kiya hoga..?" Surbhi asked confusedly which made her more angry who looked back to search the person when Dhrasti pointed on window where Armaan gave her a smiling wave which made her fumed from inside who almost glared him
"Ritvik tu nikal.. Main aata hoon.." saying this hurriedly he pushed Ritvik ahead who opened his mouth to ask Why when his next sentence stopped him "Teri bhalaai ke liye bol raha hoon.. Coz i know Khatra kya step lene waali hai.. Toh thodi der mein milta hoon tujhse ground mein.. Aur agar coach pooche kahan tha toh bata dena kisi mam ne kaamse bulaaya hai.. Bye" announcing this he ran ahead which made Ritvik chuckled who shaking his head went from there (Main jaanta tha vo ab meri complain teacher se karne waali hai.. Toh vo kuch karti isse pehle maine hi socha khudko bacha loon)
"Aree Armaan tum..??" teacher smiled as he knocked on the door making Shilpa's mouth shut in anger "Aao andar... Kya huaa?" she asked smilingly as he entered inside the class (Armaan was their school GS from last two years who was known for his good nature & discipline behavior also he was very famous among teachers for his activeness & humbleness, so all the teachers loves him which was also a reason for Shilpa's jealousy)
"Yaah.. Actually mam.. As a GS mujhe kuch inform karna tha apne juniors ko.. So May i??" in a sweet tone he looked at the class who were only staring him smilingly except Shilpa's girls group
"Sure.. Why not" teacher smiled while giving him the way
"Thank you.." saying this he turned at the class then at Shilpa who felt to kick him out of the class (Maine uski teacher se jhoot kaha ki aaj kal school mein bahoot se bacche paper boll phek rahen hai.. Aur ek dusre ko blame kar rahen hai.. So i am here to inform you all please beware.. And trust me Shilpa ka expression dekhne laayak tha yeh sunne ke baad.. She was stunned at my words aur main apni hassi control kar raha tha itne mein uski teacher ko kuch kaam aa gaya aur vo puri class mere hawaale kar gayi.. Shilpa ki class utni hi dumb thi jitni Shilpa khud.. Kyunki teacher ke jaane ke baad they started requesting me to sing for them can you believe? Aur unse bachne ke liye maine socha kyuna inka mind divert karen)
"Guys how about.. You tell me the activities changes or requests which you all want to see.. In our school.. And if possible i will try to fix it" sitting on the edge of the desk he spoke in humble tone which convince them except her gang
"Sochlo senior.. Humaari demands sunke bhaag toh nehi jaaoge" one of a boy said in teasing tone which made him chuckle
"Nehi junior.. Armaan Malik bhaagne waalo mein se nehi.." winking at him he spoke in cool voice which made the boys chuckle
"Par agar usse bhaga diya jaaye toh.." hearing Shilpa's angry voice he hide his smile and focused on her "Kyunki class humaara hai.. Aise raah chalte Bandaro kaa nehi.. Jo kabhi bhi mooh uthaaye aa jaate hain.." at her this comment her class started laughing which made him to pass a smile to her while Surbhi hit her hand lightly under the desk coz of her wrong words (Vo jo kehti thi aisa lagta tha abhi khaa jaaygi mujhe.. Par usdin laga kahin yeh sachmein zyada nafrat toh karne nehi lagi hai.. Lekin usse bhi mujhe farq nehi padta tha)
"Vaise junior.. Lagta hai tumhe yeh nehi bataaya gaya hai ki apne senior se kaise baat karte hain.. Toh let me tell you.. I have full rights to come here.. Coz i am a GS of this High school.. And i can take any decision regarding you guys.. So who is interested to share their difficulties in school" staring her smilingly he spoke in calm yet proud voice which made her to roll her eyes while her class started admiring him
"Suno naa senior.. Maths teacher ko replace kardo yaar.. Bahoot torturing hai vo" raising her hand Shweta complained cutely which made him chuckle while Shilpa's girls group glared Shweta who is also their groupbie but she was good friend of Armaan too
"Haan.. Aur Mehta sir ko bolo.. Vo apni chipchipy oil bhare haath se hume naa touch karen.." another boy complained which made him amused
"School mein.. Sports ka time aur badha do naa senior" a boy almost requested and it made him more attentive towards them coz he is enjoying their cute baseless demands (Mujhe maza aane laga uski class ke demands sunkar.. Coz vo bahoot funny baate karne lage..)
"Aur kisi ki complain.." still smiling he looked at them when Shilpa raised her hand which took their attention "Yes.. Ms.. Junior" he grinned watching her angry face who formed a fake smile on her face
"Kya aap humaare school ka GS change kar sakte hain.. Vo kya haina puraana waala bahoot.. Cheap hai.." hearing this he gave her fake smile coz the word 'Cheap' disturbed his mind but not showing to her he jumped off the desk and looked at her calmly, then walked beside her bench which made both the girls scared a little
"Kyun... Usnein aisa kya kiya jo tumhe cheap laga.." keeping his hands on her desk he bend down on her who gulped while putting her back against the bench post which made Surbhi to watch them silently coz she knows now they will start fighting
"Vo khud bahoot cheap hai.. Toh uski saari harqate cheap lagti hai.. I hate him.." gathering some courage she directly told him who smiled (Vo kuch bhi kehti mujhe farq nehi padta.. Coz she talks like this only.. Which was her own self and one of a reason of my love towards her)
"Nehi.. Hume toh yehi GS pasand hai.. Tujhe problem hai toh tu school chod de" one of a boy took his side which made her class to agree wd him and they also started cheering, Armaan gave her winning smile which made her to show him Looser sign and it was enough for him to chuckle who gave a wink to her then stepped away from her bench
"Godd!!" Shilpa held her head making Armaan smiled when
"Oyye... Football captain aap yahan hain.. Coach kabse dhoondh rahen hain tujhe" Sid's loud voice made his eyes big
"Aree haan.. Class khud handle karlo.. Aur agar mam aaye toh bol dena.. Kaam aa gaya tha.. Bye" saying this worriedly he ran out following by Sid
"Okay.. Senior" Shilpa's class boys shouted in loud voice which made her annoyed (Usdin ke baad se main Shilpa ko aur jaan bujhkar tang karta kyunki pyaar karne ka yeh matlab thodi hai aap apne self ko bhool jaao.. Mujhe school mein maza aane laga tha kyunki jo jagah pehle bore karti thi vo Shilpa ki wajah se acchi lagne lagi thi lekin yeh bhi tha mera ki apni feelings kisiko show nehi karna tha kyunki mujhe pasand nehi tha koi meri life par discussion kare.. Shilpa ke saath main normal hi tha kyunki mujhe expectations nehi the Shilpa se, i already knew she hates me so i didn't put much efforts to make her realise or anything, but call it luck or something one day she herself came to me for her project.. Mere liye vo us din ka sabse bada shock tha specially yeh ki Shilpa mere class mein aayi thi kyunki vo galti se bhi mere class ke bagal se bhi nehi guzarti thi, lekin usdin jab mujhse help maanga tab yakeen huaa yeh mujhse milne aayi hai, pehle toh socha mana kar doon par phir dimaag mein aaya nehi aise mauke kam hi milte hai jab Shilpa kuch request karti hai so main ready ho gaya.. Maine puri koshish ki, ki Shilpa hi is project mein No 1 aaye jo huaa bhi aur issi ke bich main koshish karta ki usse jitna ho sakte utna dur rahoon kyunki main usko show nehi karna chaahta tha that i love her... Par Shilpa khud tab interest lene lagi mujhmein aur mere saath soft ho gayi mujhe nehi pata usne aisa kyun kiya, may be maine uspe pranks khelne band kar diye the shayad isliye, aur sabse shocking toh tab tha jab uska project first aaya tha aur vo mere paas daudke aayi yeh news bataane, main football practice kar raha tha tabhi vo aayi thi)
"Armaan.. Hit..." his one of a classmate shouted in loud voice as Armaan was about to goal the football while the boys were cheering his name loudly, he was playing on the ground when Shilpa came there happily wd her medal and started looking for him who goaled the ball making his classmates cheered for him
"Armaan.." Shilpa shouted in happy tone but he was too lost on his match that he didn't paid attention to her words (Mujhe nehi pata tha ki vo aayi hai varna zaroor dhyaan deta.. Aur vo bula rahi thi yeh bhi nehi pata tha varna rok leta usne jo aage kiya) "Ab kya karoon.." she bit her nails as her voice was not reaching to him so looking around she started thinking something when her eyes landed on the mike which one of a senior classmate was holding for commentating "Yeh acha plan hai.." wd a giggle she ran towards them and snatching the mike she shouted his name loudly which made everyone stopped while Armaan looked back only to find Shilpa who was looking around wd embarrassment, he gave her questioning look on which she smiled sheeplessly (For me it wasn't expected from her.. Par aaj yaad karta hoon toh acha lagta hai.. Vo din bhi kabhi nehi bhool sakta main kyunki Shilpa ki stupidity jo involve thi) "Armaan mujhe tumse baat karni hai sirf thodi der ke liye kya tum vahan side mein miloge.." wd a cute face she spoke on mike which made Sid almost faint while Ritvik and other boys were shocked at her guts but at this Armaan smiled and taking an excuse from his coach he gestured her to come by his hand which made her happy who immediately ran towards him
"Kya baat hai Ms Malhotra.. Aaj toh pura school rok diya.. Itni guts kaisi aayi tumme" he teased wd a grin as she stood infront of him
"Kyunki mujhe tumhe thank you kehna tha.. Aur agar main kuch dilse karti hoon toh kissi se nehi darti.." at her pridefilled reply he gave her appreciating nod in Yes (Baat toh sahi thi uski.. Vo sachmein aisi hi thi) "Acha suno naa.. Dekho main pure class mein first aayi.. Sirf tumhaari wajah se" taking out the medal she showed to him excitedly who chuckled
"You mean.. Tumne mujhe yeh bataane ke liye yahaan bulaaya aur yeh sab roka?" he looked at her amusingly on which she giggled
"Haan toh tum mere Acche Dost ho.. Aur ek acche partner bhi toh tumhe thank you karna toh banta hai.." hearing her cheerful words he smiled slowly (Vo jo word Acche Dost aur Acche partner tha naa vo mere liye naya word tha Shilpa ke mooh se kyunki meri taarif karna uski fitrat nehi thi)
"Dost aur hum?? Yeh kab huaa..??" crossing his arms he asked in an amusing tone which made her smiled coz she is happy from her heart
"Aree.. Tumne meri project mein help ki aur hum acche partners ki tarah kaam kar rahe the.. Toh huye naa hum acche dost.. Aur agar nehi hain toh.. Kar lete hain.." she replied happily while forwarding her hand to shake which made him chuckled
"Yeh baat hai toh thik hai.." saying this smilingly he forwarded his fisted hand for punch which made her giggle who responded equally and before he could say something his coach shouted his name which made him to look back "Jaata hoon.. Bye..!" stepping back he said wd a smile on his face which made her to waved her hand to him who shaking his head ran back to his friends (Us din usne mujhse officially friendship ki thi, main kitna khush tha vo main zaahir nehi kar sakta tha usko kyunki vo meri feelings thi jisse main kisi ke saamne bhi zaahir nehi kar sakta tha not even Shilpa khud, yeh baat sirf maine Mom ke saath share ki thi jab vo mere sports day ke din aayi thi, Mom ko khushi hui thi yeh baat jaan kar kyunki unhe Shilpa acchi lagti thi in fact unhone toh yeh bhi keh diya tha ki 'Acha hai aage jaake main insecure nehi houngi tumhe lekar ki mujhe tumhe meri bahu se share karna padega kyunki Shilpa toh already mere hi side hai' mujhe unka hasta huaa vo chehra aaj bhi yaad hai...Unke siwa maine yeh baat kissi se share nehi ki thi kyunki maine khud decide nehi kiya tha ki main usse yeh baat kabhi kahunga, vo meri dost thi phir bhi main usse vaise hi treat karta jaise pehle karta tha bas is baar thoda kam, sab sahin chal raha tha until school ke last month mein jo pricipal sir ne speech diya, uska mujhpar sabse zyada asar huaa.. Actually kuch galat nehi kaha tha unhone ki hum saare baccho ko abhi life mein bahoot struggle karni hai so behtar hoga hum uske liye abhi se prepare rahe kuch bhi adhoora naa chode, yeh baate sunke mere dimaag mein yehi aaya ki carrier toh maine decide kar liya hai aur mera Dubai jaana bhi confirm hai bas jo chiz peeche reh jaaygi vo Shilpa hogi.. So issi ke chalte mere not so smart brain mein idea aaya ki main Shilpa ko propose kar doon jaane se pehle, jawaab chaahe jo ho uska par at least main apni taraf se toh clear rahunga aur kya pata vo bhi mujhe pasand karti ho, toh yehi sab soch ke maine decide kiya ki jaane se pehle usse propose karunga chaahe uska jawaab kuch bhi ho.. So apne exam ke thik teen din pehle maine usse propose karne ki thaani jo aaj main regret karta hoon kaash sense hota kuch is baat ka, par uswaqt bhi kahin naa kahin mujhe doubt tha ki vo naa kahegi kyunki main usse utna toh jaan hi gaya tha par phir bhi maine khudko ek try diya aur bina kuch soche uske liye ring buy ki apne pocket money se aur set up arrange kiya park mein jo uske hostel ke peeche tha, To be frank haan main nervous tha kyunki first time main kisi ladki ko propose karne jaa raha tha vo bhi vo ladki jisse bachpan se dekhta aaya hoon, Shilpa ko bulaaya maine jo aayi bhi par kuch mood kharaab lag raha tha uska maine pucha bhi tha par usnein topic change karte huye bola main apni baat khatam karun pehle, so wdout making any fuss i proposed her... Main yeh toh jaanta tha ki vo naa kahegi par yeh expected nehi tha vo maaregi mujhe, Yes usne thappad maara tha mujhe vo bhi chaar aur do kick, main uswaqt itna shock tha ki react nehi kar paaya coz for me she took me as normal boy not her friend and that's why she hit me, she had every right to react but this was unexpected from her, maine usse kuch nehi kaha aur vo chali bhi gayi mujhe wahan akela chod kar, haan mujhe hurt hui thi but i was okay at that time coz main tab itna sochta nehi tha in fact maine toh decide kar liya tha ki kal main Khatra ke baal kaat dunga so ring utha kar main apne hostel room mein aaya.. But deep down i was hurt coz she was my first love.. Shilpa ko uske baal bahoot pyaare hain toh maine socha usse sabak toh sikhaana hi padega, main soch hi raha tha ki ghar se Driver uncle aa gayye meri life ke road ka Turning point bankar, unhone kaha mujhe dad bula rahen hain ghar mujhe laga zaroor Shilpa ne complain ki hogi par kya pata tha usse bhi kuch bada hone waala tha, maine pure raaste driver uncle se puchne ki koshish ki kya huaa par unhone itna kaha ki kuch important hai, mujhe unka silence dekh kar lag toh raha tha ki kuch bada huaa hai aur mere dimaag mein Shilpa aayi jiske uper mujhe gussa bhi aaya ki agar baat hum dono ke bich ki thi toh usse sabko involve karne ki zaroorat nehi thi.. Par mujhe confusion tab huaa jab driver uncle mujhe hospital ke andar le gayye, pehle mujhe laga kahin Shilpa ne suicide toh nehi kar liya par jab maine meri puri family ko ek hospital room ke bahar dekha aur mom ko nehi dekha ek unknown sa dar andar aaya, mujhe toh pata bhi nehi chala kab Gautmi aunty mujhe andar le gayi mom ke paas jinhen bed par dekhne ke baad meri dhadkane ruk gayi)
"Aapne toh kaha tha ki.. Jab main hostel se aaunga aap mera welcome gaane gaa kar karogi..?" taking a seat beside her bed he asked in strong voice coz from inside he was weak
"Idhar aao.." extending her weak hand she spoke in low voice which made him to hold her hand immediately "Mere paas zyada.. Time nehi hai Armaan.. Par mujhe tumse ek promise chaahiye.." as she said this in fake smiling face he gave a nod in Yes wd moist eyes "Promise me.. Tum ek rockstar hi banoge.. Apna sapna nehi chodoge apne dad ke liye.. Kyunki main tumhe dekhna chaahti hoon ek acche singer ke roop mein.. Yeh nehi ki dad ne kaha business join... Karlo toh business join kar liya.. You know naa businessmen kitne boring hoten hain.. I don't like them at all" she tried to sound cheerful but her condition was so bad that Armaan couldn't stop his tears
"Yaah i know.. Kyunki unke paas time nehi hota family ke liye.. At least ek singer apni family ke liye gaane toh gaata hai haina.." he repeated her dialogue which made her smile wd moist eyes while giving nod in Yes "Par main apna pehla gaana aapke liye gaana chaahta hoon.." now his voice cracked which made her smiled tearfully
"Aree.. Toh kisne kaha main nehi sunungi tumhaare gaane.. Bhagwaan se lad kar kahungi ki dekho mera beta mere liye gaane gaa raha hai.. Toh vo mujhe uper se dekhne denge.." she tried to cheer him who sniffed still holding her hand firmly
"Haan zaroor free time haina unke paas.. Mere gaane sunne ke liye.." as he joked softly she giggled (Mom ke saamne pretend karna ki main samajhta hoon sab kuch bahoot mushkil tha.. Kyunki main jaan chuka tha kuch bhi kar loon unko bacha nehi paaunga..)
"Mera Armaan itna alag hai ki bhagwaan bhi sunenge usse dekh lena.." tracing his side of face she spoke in loving voice which made him cried "Aree.. Tumhe toh abhi life mein bahoot kuch haasil karna hai.. Aise ro kar kamzor mat pado Armaan.. Apne sapno ko pura karo mera sapna samajh kar... Bas yehi chaahti hoon main..." she again tried to cheer him who gave a nod in Yes while fighting back his tears (Maine bachpan se dekha tha ki Mom ko kuch haasil karna tha par Dad aur ghar sambhaalne ke chakkar mein vo kuch nehi kar paayi tabhi toh vo chaahti thi ki main unka sapna pura karoon, i know vo apne dancing job ko aur badhaana chaahti thi par vo nehi ho paaya humaari wajah se) "Acha ek baat mat bhoolna.. Kabhi kisiko hurt mat karna galti se bhi, aur humesha sabki feelings ki respect karna, selfish kabhi mat banana.. Par yeh bhi nehi ki dusro ke chakkar mein khudki khushi kurbaan kar dena.." wiping his tears lovingly she said which made him to nod in Yes silently "Aur haan Shilpa ko zyada tang mat karna.. Varna vo ab kisse complain karegi.." at her words he smiled sadly "Aree.. Haan tumne usse propose kiya??" as she asked in weak voice he became stiff (Main unko kaise batata ki jo vo chaahti thi vo nehi ho sakta toh nehi chaahte huye jhoot bolna pada unse)
"Nehi.. Baad mein kabhi kahunga" crossing his fingers behind his back he lied which made Naina smiled
"Haan.. Dekhna vo tumhe mana kar hi nehi paaygi.." she cheered him who showed a sad smile then taking a sigh watched her face silently
"Acha agar main.. Kahoon mat jaao.. Toh jaaogi..?" tracing her cheek softly he asked in an innocent voice which made her sniffed
"Koshish karungi..." siding his hairs from his forehead lovingly she said in low voice which made him more weak who in a soft way hugged her carefully while crying which made Naina also weak (Vo ek aisa pal tha na jo main aaj tak nehi bhula, main unhi ke saath tha pure time aur mere hi aankhon ke saamne vo chali gayi mujhe akela chod ke, mujhe uswaqt kissi ki zaroorat nehi thi main kisi se baat nehi karna chaahta tha kyunki mere dil mein jiske liye jitni feelings thi vo ek hi raat mein chali gayi... Mujhe vo ghar mom ki yaad dilaata tha kyunki main kitna bhi masti karta aakhir aata toh Mom ke paas hi tha aur unke bina vo ghar kisi aur ka lagne laga, Main dad se kya kehta vo khud bahoot sad the main Swayam ko kaise sambhaalta usse dekh kar mujhe unki yaad aati toh maine sabse khudko dur hi kar liya.. Aur jab dad ne poocha main kya chaahta hoon maine keh diya mujhe yahaan se jaana hai kyunki jo paanch din maine bina mom ke guzaare the vahaan vo torturing the aur main nehi chaahta tha ki main apni puri life aise guzaaroon, vaise bhi maine promise kiya tha mom ko ki main apna sapna pura karunga aage toh wahi pura karne nikal pada sabko peeche chod.. Dubai aane ke baad mujhe kisiki yaad nehi aayi kyunki khudko bahoot busy kar liya tha maine apne studies aur activities mein, mujhe koi yaad tha toh vo meri Mom thi bas aur koi nehi, zyada kisi se baat nehi karta tha main kyunki mujhe khudko kuch banaana tha toh zyada friendship nehi ki kisi se except Stephen jo mera uswaqt best buddy tha, bahoot funny aur cheerful tha vo mujhe har baat par hasaata tha.. Sab sahin chal raha tha, i had joined football team of my collage and the Music band which became huge popular in our collage, sab kuch sahin chal raha tha ek dum mere hisaab se par humesha nehi chal paaya kyunki ek din humaare class mein ek Indian ladki ne entry li jo scholarship ke through select hui thi, maine itna dhyaan nehi diya tha uspe par Stephen ne bataya tha ki vo bahoot smart ladki hai par bahoot bolti hai.. Aise hi ek din main class mein tha ki vo aakar mere paas baith gayi jo surprising tha mere liye)
"Hello!" hearing an unknown cheerful voice he looked away from his book only to find the same new Indian girl beside his desk, he looked at her from head to toe, wearing a denim play suit wd blue t-shirt underneath and her long hairs tied in pony was making her cute
"Hii..!!" he passed a small formal smile to her who wd a wide smile sat beside him which made him surprised a little
"Actually.. I am new here.. And i don't know anyone.. Other than you.." he frowned as she said slowly
"You know me??" closing his book he questioned on which she gave a nod in Yes smilingly
"Yes.. Armaan Malik an Indian boy.. Right?" her full of energy voice made him amused who gave a nod in Yes "Actually.. No.. First tell me you know Hindi language??" pointing her finger she asked wd doubtful look and it made him to give a nod in Yes calmly "Great.. Yeh accha huaa naa ki tumhe hindi aati hai.. Thank god varna mujhe toh laga tha main in Angrezo ke bich angrez naa ban jaaun.. Actually main naa scholarship ke through select hui hoon, main Goa se hoon.. Aur aisa nehi hai mujhe English aati nehi hai, aati hai mujhe par problem yeh hai ki jo humaari khud ki language hai usmein jo baat hai vo kisi mein nehi hai.. Mujhe jab pata chala main yahan padhne waali hoon By god! Khushi ka thikaana nehi tha mere par jab main yahaan aayi aur dekha sab log kitne formal hai, main toh pehle hi din bore ho gayi.. Lekin phir mujhe tum dikhe kisi Worrior ki tarah tumhaara naam jaane ke baad pata chala ki tum toh Indian ho By God! Aur tumhaare kaam dekhne ke baad mujhe laga dosti toh tumse karni hi padegi.." she was continueously talking & talking wdout taking any break and hearing her nonstop Bak-Bak Armaan got bored
(Mujhe toh uswaqt laga itni zor se chillaaun usko ki dubaara vo bole hi naa, par nehi kar sakta tha kyunki vo new thi toh thoda patience rakh kar main wait karne laga kab chup hogi par vo chup hui hi nehi, mujhe laga itna toh Shilpa bhi nehi bolti thi jitna yeh bol rahi thi) "Tabhi main tumhaare paas aayi kyunki agar ek Indian dusre Indian ki help nehi karega toh kaun karega bhala.. Vaise tumhe pata hai is pure university mein sirf paanch Indian students hain jinmein se hum dono vo do hain.." she spoke in an exciting voice which made him to look at her amusingly
"And.. How did you know this??" his calm question made her giggle
"Actually.. I searched about it secretly.." wd a wink she replied in low voice which made him smiled at her frankness
"Hmm.. Toh tum Goa se ho.. Nice.." keeping his book away he looked at her wd a smile
"Haan toh.. Goa ke sabse bade Orphange house.. In fact main vahan ki top student hoon.." hearing her cool reply he smiled but got confused at the word orphange
"Orphange house??" he asked in careful tone on which she smiled slowly
"Yaah.. Main orphange house se hoon.. Means i am an orphan.. Actually bachpan se main wahin pali badi hoon.. Bas collage mein ek fest ke dauraan mujhe yeh chance mila yahaan aane ka aur kuch proove karne ka.. Toh aa gayi khudke liye.." Armaan's face turned soft hearing her slow reply (Vo itni pure heart thi ki main kya koi bhi usse friendship karle, main sochne laga meri Mom nehi hai tab mujhe itna lonely feel hota hai iske toh dono hi nehi hai in fact koi bhi nehi hai.. I am sure isse bahoot akela feel hota hoga)
"Hmm.. Toh tum yahaan kahan rehti ho..?" keeping his back against the desk post he asked wd a calm look which made her smiled
"Aree.. Collage ne hostel room provide kiya hai.. Jahaan bahoot hi Hot aur Bold ladkiyaan hain.. In fact meri room mate toh full too Talli hai.." he chuckled at her complaining voice "Vaise agar tumhe kabhi koi pasand aaye toh mujhe bataana.. Vo kya haina main setting bahoot acchi karti hoon.." she said in excited voice which made him laugh
"Nehi.. Mujhe kisi k saath koi setting ki zaroorat nehi.. Par tumhe kisi help ki zaroorat hai..? Vo kya haina main help bahoot acha karta hoon.." his calm smiling reply made her giggle
"Jab bhi zaroorat hogi sabse pehle tumhe bolungi.. Done.." in her happy way she spoke which not only made him smile but also a little free (Yeh pehli baar tha jab maine Shilpa ke siwa kisi aur ladki se friendship ki thi that too closely.. Jo meri sirf acchi dost hi nehi mera parivaar bhi hai..)
"By the way.. Maine tumhaara naam toh poocha hi nehi... Tumhaara naam kya hai..?" they were talking when he realised about her name who slapped lightly her own head smilingly
"Main bhi naa pura history bata diya By god!! Naam toh bataaya hi nehi.. Mera naam hai Rati.. Sirf Rati.. Koi surname nehi" saying this smilingly she forwarded her hand to shake which he responded smilingly who also teased at her word Sirf Rati which made her giggle (Aur us din se shuru hui meri aur Rati ki friendship jo bahoot jaldi acchi ho gayi, Stephen ko shuru shuru Rati se problem thi kyunki mostly vo Hindi mein hi bolti thi even vo Stephen ki buraai bhi uske mooh par karti thi par Stephen ko nehi samajhta tha aur un dono ka vo scene mere liye kaafi interesting hota tha.. Phir dekhte hi dekhte hum teeno mein ek bahoot hi acchi bond ban chuki thi, Rati ek cafe mein job karti thi as a waitress aur hum dono har weekend usse milne wahin jaate bahoot maza aane laga tha mujhe, main bhool gaya tha ki meri family India mein hai haan Dad Ram uncle Naani aur Aunty se baat hoti thi meri par kabhi maine Shilpa aur Sid ke baare mein nehi pucha pata nehi kyun shayad main bahoot aage aa chuka tha par main Swayam ke baare mein poochta tha infact usse toh baat bhi hoti thi meri kyunki usse jab dekhta mujhe mom yaad aati thi jo mujhe bura nehi acha lagta tha, Aaj yaad karta hoon toh accha nehi lagta par uswaqt zindagi mein aage badhne ke liye sab ko bhoolna thik laga tha mujhe, Aur haan ek aur chiz change ki thi maine aur vo tha maine Dad ke paise use karne band kar diye the kyunki mujhe laga ab mujhe khud kuch karna chaahiye aur issi chakkar mein main ek church ke kuch orphange baccho ko padhaane laga.. Trust me vo experience bahoot naya aur alag tha kyunki vahan pe itni shaanti rehti thi ki mujhe peace milta un baccho ke saath aur vahan ke Father toh mere dost ban gayye the jo ki Stephen ke uncle the, Actually mujhe is job ka suggestion Stephen ne hi diya tha kyunki uske uncle ko zaroorat thi so maine unhe join kiya, main kisi bhi stress mein rehta he was there to solve my problems wd his peaceful & calm advices, yeh jo mere andar calmness aur peacefulness hai vo sirf unki wajah se, in fact cycle chalaane ki hobby mujhe wahin se lagi kyunki church ka road kaafi chota tha jahan zyada vehicles nehi aate the toh maine socha car aur bike chod kar cycling karun jo easily vahaan jaaygi, main jab bhi vahan jaata vahaan ke saare bacche mujhe cycle ki competition dete jo kaafi interesting lagta mujhe aur phir kya tha cycling meri hobby ban gayyi, yeh sab baate maine Dad ko nehi bataayi kyunki mujhe pata tha unhe fikar hoti meri so unke diye paise main mostly church mein donate karta bas church ke andar nehi jaata pata nehi kyun mujhe ajeeb sa hi lagta tha unke saamne, uswaqt pata nehi tha par ab pata hai main unse naraaz tha meri sabse important chiz ko apne paas bulaane ke liye, khair vo toh thi us time ki baat jismein khushiyaan bahoot thi hum teeno friends ki wajah se..Humaari life full phase mein jaa rahi thi aur isi life mein ek aur person ki entry hui jo bhi unexpected tha, yeh us din ki baat hai jab humaari football team ki ladaai base boll team ke saath ho gayi thi aur phir yeh baat team ke captains tak pahuchi jismein se mujhe aage kar diya gaya us team ke captain se ladne ke liye jo ki mujhe karna nehi tha, hum dono ke bich bahoot arguments huye and as in detention hume principal ne ek room mein lock kar diya jahaan humne ladaai ki par phir shaant bhi hogaye kyunki humne bina baat ki ladaai ki jismein hum invlove bhi nehi the, Hum ek dusre se baate karte gayye aur kuch hi palo mein dost bhi ban gayye vo bhi Indian hi tha, us din ke baad humara zyada interaction nehi ho paaya kyunki vo apni class mein busy tha aur main apne par ek din hum mile phirse vo bhi is baar Rati ki wajah se kyunki usne collage fest mein participate kiya tha aur usse male models ki zaroorat thi so usnein aadhe boys humaari class se select ki aur aadhi bahar se, Actually vo ek bahoot hi acchi fashion designer hai toh uswaqt vo uska first time tha isiliye usnein Show stopper mujhe choose kiya tha aur Stephen ko par thik fest ke ek hafte pehle Stephen ko football khelte time chot aa gayi thi aur Rati ko bahoot mehnat karni padi dusra show stopper dhoodhne ke liye, Usse mil bhi gaya tha jo uski ek friend ne suggest kiya tha jisse bina dekhe Rati ne approve kiya, lectures ke baad hum uska hi wait kar rahe the Recreation room mein)
"By god! Mujhe toh samajh nehi aata.. Why people are such dumb that they don't value the time" an angry Rati moved tro & fro while blabbering which made Armaan chuckled who was sitting on couch beside Stephen whose leg was injured "Armaan maine usse aadhe ghante pehle bulaaya tha aur ab tak nehi aaya vo angrez.. Aane do aisi band bajaaungi naa ki bhool jaayga sab kuch.." looking at him she spoke in angry voice which made him to give her calm nod in Yes while Stephen wd puzzled look looked at him
"Why she always talks in Hindi.. Sometimes it goes up from head" hearing Stephen's words he chuckled "I think she knowingly does this.. So that i couldn't understand what she says about me.. What say" he whispered on his ear who gave a calm nod in Yes mumbling May be "I knew it.. By the way.. What she is blabbering..??" he asked in low voice
"She is blabbering about the guy.. Who still didn't arrived for her show" tying his shoe laces he replied in calm tone which made Stephen chuckled "What??" he frowned seeing him giggling
"She is crazy.. Coz the person she don't know.. She is complaining about him.. Girls are really strange" hearing his nonchant reply he chuckled while giving hifive to him (Stephen ki sabse acchi baat yehi thi vo humesha khush aur positive rehta tha jo ek bahoot acchi wajah thi mere liye uske karib rehne ki)
"Main usse itni gaaliyan dungi ki vo samajhega nehi.. Angrez jo thaira.. I will kill..." but before she could blabber more or Armaan & Stephen could get more bore someone's voice voice made three of them stopped
"What if i know Hindi.. And i retort you wd equal way.." walking towarda her that boy spoke in chilled out voice which made Stephen giggle while Armaan stood as he recognised the person (Mujhe thoda strange coincident laga ki aise kaise yeh yahaan ho sakta hai.. Actually yeh Baseboll team ka captain tha jisse ek mahine pehle hi friendship hui thi meri) "Vo kya kehtein hain.. Haan Eet ka jawaab patthar se.." Rati made a serious look as he stood in front of her smilingly
"You are late.. Okay" she reminded him while pointing her index finger which he ignored
"Hey.. Armaan.. How are you.. Buddy" giving a side hug to Armaan he asked in happy voice which made Rati fumed
"You guys know each other??" Stephen asked confusedly which made both the boys to look down at him
"Yaah.. We met last month during that fight remember?" As Armaan replied calmly Stephen tried to think
"Yup.. And i am here for him only.. Coz i wanted to meet him once again" saying this cooly that boy forwarded his fisted hand towards Armaan who smiled while responding it and seeing no attention towards her Rati got angry
"Excuse me.. Should we discuss about the fest?" hearing her extra polite tone three of them looked back and gave a nod in Yes "By the way.. What's your name??" her voice was uninteresting
"Deep.. Deep Raichand" forwarding his hand he introduced himself which made her to shook it wd fake smile!!
