Part 99 :From The Time I Saw You - An AR FF -

Riddhima sleep were disturb with sudden pain on her lower belly, she move her hand on the spot, rubbing there trying to reduce the pain but it keeps increasing making difficult for to laid... She was feeling so sleepy, she didn't bother to open her eyes but slowly sit up, hoping it would reduce the pain...
When it continue, Riddhima slowly open her eyes to check the time which shows 2 am... She could hardly got two hours sleep and now she is awake thanks to the pain... She don't understand what was happening but it was surely making her restless and uncomfortable with sweat-beans form on her forehead...
Riddhima felt her whole body growing warm and suddenly she felt very hot, looking at Armaan side to see him sleeping on his stomach, she move Armaan hand off from her body so it wouldn't disturb his sleep with her movement...
Putting down her legs, Riddhima sit for a second before stood up to go to the washroom to wash her face... She thought of take a painkiller but than drop the idea thinking it was just a normal ache... Somehow Riddhima reached to the washroom and splash water on her face, trying to cool down...
It did help and she stood hoping that the pain would reduce soon because it has been happening from morning that she would feel the pain suddenly and it would go on its own... After sometimes, Riddhima move out and saw Armaan was still in deep slumber...

She was glad that, her absent didn't disturb his sleep which usually do if he is not in deep slumber... She knows it was a busy day for him as after two weeks he has got back to work and it must have make him very much tired... As the pain was slowly reducing, Riddhima move back to her side of the bed...
She slowly sit, stretching her legs and resting her back on the pillow which was kept against head-board... She look Armaan once before taking a glass of water and taking two three sips... She just hold the glass and look the at alarm clock kept on the side table when her eyes fell on the chocolate...
Forgetting about the pain, Riddhima quickly took it and look at Armaan not being sure if she should eat it or not at this time... She knows Armaan would scold her, finding her eating chocolate at this hour of the night but seeing how much deep slumber he was, Riddhima thought he wouldn't know...
So keeping the glass back, Riddhima open the wrapper but look at Armaan because it did kill the silent around the room... Armaan turn in his sleep, Riddhima wait for sometimes and when she was sure he wouldn't move, she continue to unwrap it still with her eyes on him...
As soon as she did, she popped a piece in her mouth, enjoying the taste closing her eyes... She felt so much better and she kept eating the chocolate, taking her sweet time without caring about the time... When she finished it, she look at Armaan being happy that he didn't wake...
So leaving the empty wrapper on the side table, Riddhima slide down moving closed to Armaan... Feeling much better and forgetting why she got up, Riddhima closed her eyes letting the sleep take over while she hugs Armaan... He pull her closed feeling her warm and both laid in each other arms...
MORNING
Alarm break the silent around the room as Riddhima stretch out her hand to off it, she turn around hiding her face trying to catch some more sleep but after sometime, again Armaan mobile alarm started making both open their eyes to check the time...
It was usual time for Riddhima to wake up, she sit up with her eyes still half closed, trying to shake off the sleep... Armaan put the alarm on snoozing and hide his face on the pillow... Riddhima sit for sometimes and pull her hair in to a messy bun, looking at the time once again...
Knowing Armaan wouldn't wake up, Riddhima was about to move down but was pull back making her fall on Armaan... She wasn't shocked because it's not knew to be pulled back by her darling husband whenever she try to leave without giving him a kiss... Even a peck would be enough but a proper one should be followed after she get ready herself for the day...
Riddhima also didn't wish to wake up but she knows, she can't take off from work again when she had been on holiday... So it make her smile when Armaan pull her and hold her waist, his one hand move on her face, cupping it, caring her cheek softly with his thumb...
Neither of them need any words to be exchange as they very well understand what the other must be thinking... Armaan want his kiss and Riddhima knows it wouldn't be possible for her to leave when his sleep is already disturb... Sure he would try to get some more sleep but till Riddhima come out...
They just stare at each other with a smile on their face and soon Armaan capture her tempting lips, tasting the sweetness and he was surprise to taste her like chocolate... Unaware why, Armaan continue take all the sweetness with Riddhima equally responding to the kiss...
When they were out of breath, Riddhima break the kiss letting herself fall on the bed next to him... Trying to control her fast heartbeat along with her sharp breath closing her eyes but she felt her breath caught somewhere in her throat when she felt Armaan face moving on her neck, placing wet kisses...
Riddhima eyes got shut tight as her hands move on Armaan shoulder and up to his nape... Armaan move his lips on her neckline and shoulder-line to collar bone placing uncountable kisses... When he felt Riddhima heart banging loudly on her chest, he move out looking at her face and peck her lips...
Riddhima smile feeling his lips and open her eyes to see Armaan already staring her back with all the love it contains for her in his heart... Riddhima smile got huge and soon they were lost in each other eyes until Armaan lick his lips to taste the chocolate...
'Why u are tasting like chocolate...???' Armaan asked...
Riddhima expression turn to nervous hearing his sudden question, she knows she can't lie to him and when Armaan saw how her expression change, he look on her side to see the empty wrapper... Riddhima bite her lower lip to control herself knowing Armaan got his answer without her uttering a single word...
'Tumne phirse chocolate khayi...??? Kab...???' Armaan asked being amaze as he didn't remember her eating before they go to sleep...
'Woh...' Riddhima look away, trying to push him off...
'Don't even think that u will fly away without answering me jaan...' Armaan said holding her hand and pin it on the bed, either side of her head...
'Tch, Armaan... Chodo, mujhe ready hona hai...' Riddhima said trying to free her hands...
'Rokha kisne, jawab doh phir chali jaana...' Armaan said...
'Jab tum sogaye, tab... Khush, now move...' Riddhima said...
'Tum baaz nehi aaongi na apne harkaton se...' Armaan said moving off from her...
'Please Armaan, don't make it a huge thing...' Riddhima said moving down from the bed...
'Of course it's a huge thing, tum aise kabhi chocolates nehi khaate... I think u should go for a check up...' Armaan said laying, watching her taking their cloths...
'Not again, main bilkul tik hun ok... Kuch nehi huva hai, bas craving hai and it's not a big deal...'Riddhima said getting irritate...
'Gussa kyun ho rahe ho, I m just worried baby...' Armaan said hearing her tone...
Riddhima stop whatever she was doing and realized that how rude she reply to him, of course he was worried and concern for her... She should be happy that Armaan care for her so much but here, she was getting upset and irritate with him...
'Baby...???' Armaan call when Riddhima just stood holding their cloths...
'Huh...???' Riddhima asked coming out from her trace...
'Kiya soch rahe ho...???' Armaan asked...
'Nothing, mujhe der ho rahi hai...' Riddhima said moving to the washroom without giving Armaan a chance to ask any more question...
Armaan just kept watching her until she move inside the washroom, closing the door behind... Armaan was surprise with Riddhima reaction because surely something seems fishy with her behavior... He didn't want to chase the topic knowing Riddhima would get emotional if things didn't turn out the way they want, that is the reason he just kept asking her to do a check up...
Seeing Riddhima isn't willing to go and do check up, Armaan think about something and make a call... He talk someone for good five minutes, before ending the call and look towards the washroom door, which was closed and he could hear the water running...
Knowing he can't make her go to do a check up, Armaan laid down trying to catch some sleep before she comes out but his mind was still working like a speedy engine as many thoughts came crossing it as he was concern with Riddhima behavior from few days...
GUPTA MANSION
Padma was serving Shashank as he was busy in a call, knowing it must be related to work, Padma didn't interrupt him... She wait for Shashank to end the call and start breakfast when the door bell rang, indicating that it must be Anjali and Atul with Anjul...
Padma left to let them in, Anjul jump happily on Padma arms making Anjali pout seeing how much he is attach to his grandmother... Padma smile as they all move in and make their way to the dinning table where Shashank has just end the call...
'Itni jaldi aagaye tum log...???' Shashank asked seeing his daughter and son in law with his grandson...
'Good morning dad...' Anjali greet him with a quick hug...
'Good morning beti...' Shashank said returning the hug...
'Good morning papa...' Atul greet him too...
'Very good morning beta...' Shashank said...
Anjul jump on Padma arms to get Shashank attention making everyone smile, he bend over so Shashank could give him a kiss and wish him the same... Shashank happily, shower his grandson with kisses and nuzzling his small nose making him giggle...
'Yes yes, very good morning to my baccha...' Shashank said making him show his toothless smile...
After exchanging greetings, Anjali and Atul joins Shashank for breakfast where Padma got busy holding Anjul as for some reason he seems very active this morning... Shashank talk with Atul for sometimes before asking Anjali about her work...
'Actually dad, mujhe aaj baahar ek kaam hai and I need another doctor to help me...' Anjali said...
'Is it related to work...???' Shashank asked...
'Yes dad...' Anjali said as Shashank ask her to go on through his head...
Both Shashank and Atul were surprise to hear where she had to go, neither of them was aware of such thing being arrange before... So Anjali filled them with the sudden plan and they felt that they really should go on with the work because it would be the least they could do being doctors...
'Ok Anjali, main kuch karta hun... Will it be if u go after lunch...???' Shashank asked...
'I think it would be fine dad...' Anjali said as she has a surgery schedule...
'Ok than, I will arrange the rest...' Shashank said...
'Aap log ke kaam ki baat hogaye toh jaldi breakfast khatam karlo...' Padma said as she manage to calm down Anjul...
Anjul was now in his high chair, with belt around his waist for safety so he wouldn't fall... Padma had given him, his teether so he would stop asking to give him food which he can't eat yet... They all look towards Anjul when he suddenly got quiet and smile seeing him busy with his teether...
'Waise Anjali, Sapna se baat huvi...???' Padma asked...
'Kis baare mein mom...???' Anjali asked...
'Arey, kal raat tumne toh kaha... Uski aur Amit ke sagai aur shaadi ke date fixed hone wala hai...'Padma asked make her remember...
'Oh haan, maine usse call nehi ki mom... Waise bhi hospital mein milenge toh, main waha jaakar puchlungi...' Anjali said...
'Sapna ki shaadi...???' Shashank asked as he knows her being Riddhima friend...
'Haan dad, uske aur Amit ke parents maan gaye hai... Toh ab jaldi dono ke shaadi karwana chahte hai...' Anjali said...
'Accha hai, ab tum sabki shaadi hogayi hai... Bas wohi rehgayi, ab bas kuch din mein uski bhi shaadi hojaenge...' Padma said...
'Lekin tum Amit koh kaise jaante ho...???' Shashank asked...
'Dad, Sapna aur Amit ek dusre koh pehle se jaante hai... Sapna ne humein Amit se milwaya, shayad aapne kabhi dhyan nehi diya hoga dad... Lekin woh Ridzy aur Muski ke shaadi bhi attend ki...' Anjali said...
'Phir toh maine zarur mila hoga...' Shashank said...
'Mom, seems like finally dad is getting old...' Anjali said laughing...
'Haan Anjali...' Padma said smiling...
'If I m getting old, aap bhi mere saath hogi Padma...' Shashank said...
'Mujhe old hone mein koi problem nehi hai Shashank, ab toh humhare ek grandchild bhi hai... Jawan toh hoge nehi, bacchon ke bacche aayenge toh...' Padma said...
'No mom, aap dono abhi bhi jawan hai... Kyun dad...???' Anjali said...
'Of course, koan kahenge humhare grandchild bhi hai...' Shashank said wiping his hands...
'Exactly...' Anjali said...
'Chalo, mera hogaya... Chale Anjali...???' Shashank asked...
'Haan dad, I m done too...' Anjali said looking at Atul...
'Me too...' Atul said as he was also cleaning his hands...
Soon everyone left, kissing Anjul and bidding bye to Padma... Anjul happily wave to his parents and grandfather, than he was taken inside to the hall to spend sometimes with his grandmother before she put him to sleep because Anjali just inform her before going that Anjul has wake up very early today...
MALLIK ENTERPRISE
'Attention everyone...' Armaan call out for his employees to get their attention...
After coming, he has gone to get his schedule of the day before asking his PA to call Atul and Riddhima out from their cabins as he has to inform about something... Atul however had a clue about what it was related to but Riddhima was unaware so she look at him confused...
Everyone stop their work and gave their attention to Armaan, he scan the whole place and seeing he has successfully got every single person attention towards him, he move in the middle so everyone could clearly hear what he was going to tell them...
'I know it's a very quick and unexpected announcement but I have decide that, I would like to get every single person in this office get a check up done... I want to keep a record of health about my employees so I hope it wouldn't be any issue, do you...???' Armaan asked...
'No Sir...' Employees reply...
'Good, so in lunch break the proceed will start... You don't have to do much, get urself check with two doctors who would visit us around 1 pm...' Armaan said...
'Ok Sir...' Employees reply...
'Thank you, now u may get back to work...' Armaan said making his way back to his cabin...
Atul left to his cabin but Riddhima was surprise with the sudden plan, she felt that somewhere Armaan was doing it because she wasn't ready to go hospital for her check up... So not wasting another second, she march to his cabin... Armaan was reading a file but his expression shows that he was already expecting her...
Closing the door, not wanting to get others attention, Riddhima move in front of him as she wait for an answer but Armaan got back to read his file... Armaan very well know why she has come but he didn't wish to give her any answer unless she directly asked...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name, letting him know she is waiting...
'Yes, Mrs. Mallik... Aapko kuch kaam hai...???' Armaan asked in a professional tone...
'Armaaan...' Riddhima said irritatingly seeing how he was ignoring...
'Yes Mrs. Mallik...???' Armaan asked finally looking up from the file...
'Woh baahar, what were u doing...???' Riddhima asked directly...
'What was I doing...??? Just inform my employees that they had to do a check up to keep a record of their health so we get update if they are well enough to work in such a big company...' Armaan said as if it was just the most normal thing...
'Armaan, main acchi tarahse jaanti hun tum aisa kyun kar rahe ho...' Riddhima said giving him a stern look...
'Good for you, so be there...' Armaan said going back to his file...
Seeing how easily, Armaan just end the topic, Riddhima just frown seeing how he was hell bend to make her do the check up... She knows there wasn't anything happening to her health and if possible, she would never step in hospital to get herself done a check up...
To show how much piss she was with him for not leaving a option her to deny for it as every single employee were inform that they had to go through it no matter what, Riddhima move on his side and snatch his file making Armaan smirk with her action...
Armaan turn his chair to face her as she bang the file hard on the table, her one hand on hips and pointing finger towards him, Riddhima bend a little over him as he just sit back relaxing himself not being bother by her reaction... His smirk expression make Riddhima frown deep because it shows that he would do anything if it has to be done...
'Tum aise force nehi kar sakte Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Believe me darling, u have no way out from it now...' Armaan said chuckling with her words...
'Kyun kar rahe ho aisa...' Riddhima asked crossing hands on chest...
'I have told you already Mrs. Mallik, sirf tumhari nehi, sabko check up karwana hai...' Armaan said...
'Why suddenly...???' Riddhima asked...
'I just felt I need to keep record of my employees health and even the board members agree with my suggestion...' Armaan said...
'And when did that exactly happen...??? Kyunki jaha tak main jaanti hun, dad bhi board member hai and he hasn't mention anything like that back in home...' Riddhima said...
'Common Mrs. Mal...' Armaan was cut by her...
'Don't you dare say further Armaan, stop with this Mallik... I m not talking as your employee...'Riddhima said...
'Oh toh aap mere biwi ho ke puch rahe ho...' Armaan asked...
'Of course...' Riddhima said rolling her eyes...
'No problem Jaani, phir bhi main yehi kahunga... Jaisa maine bataya, reason wahi hai...' Armaan said suddenly pulling Riddhima on his lap...
'Yeh kiya kar rahe ho...' Riddhima said struggling in his hold, as he put his arms around her waist...
'Apne biwi se pyar kar raha hun...' Armaan said holding her and hiding his face on her neck, nuzzling there...
'Stop it Armaan, hum office mein hai... Kuch toh sharam karo, koi bhi aa sakte hai...' Riddhima said softly smacking his arm...
'Don't forget Mrs. Biwi Mallik, mere permission ke bina koi nehi aayenge andar...' Armaan said busy in his task...
'Tch, Armaan chodo mujhe... Aur ek baat samajhlo tum, main check up nehi karne wali...' Riddhima said trying to push him away...
'Ok, you can go and tell dad... Aur yeh bhi bata dena, kyun nehi karwana...' Armaan said moving out but still didn't leave her...
'Arghhh, I hate you Mr. Mallik...' Riddhima said being frustrate...
'I love you too Mrs. Mallik...' Armaan said stealing a quick peck on her lips...
Riddhima just push away Armaan arms and stood up, giving him a angry glare... He couldn't help but smile at her cute expression as her face as turn flush in angry... Seeing Armaan smile, Riddhima just stomping her feet left showing how much upset she was with his sudden decision...
When Riddhima left, Armaan got back to his file still thinking about her expression... As she was being too stubborn to listen to him, he decide to do something that she couldn't deny because it wouldn't be for only her but every single person in the office...
Also he has already talk to the board members before letting the employees know about it... For the time, sure she was upset but Armaan knows, she wouldn't be able to stay upset with him for longer... He wouldn't have to do such thing if she has listen to him first place but as she didn't leave any other option for him, so he thought that both can play...
HOSPITAL
'Sapna, congratulation...' Anjali said hugging her...
After briefing their interns and when they were dismiss to go to their respective duties, Anjali stop her as she had got to know from Muskaan that her engagement was fixed for the coming week and after two weeks, marriage... Muskaan has left to attend her patient after filling Anjali with Sapna engagement and marriage information...
As Riddhima wasn't feeling well and Anjali couldn't join them being with Anjul, it was only Muskaan who had gone when they finalized Sapna and Amit engagement and marriage date... Being excited, Muskaan has just blabber the moment Anjali asked what Sapna and Amit parents has decide...
So when finally they got alone, Anjali took the opportunity to congratulate her once again... Also she has to inform her about their work after lunch time, Shashank has given off for her and Sapna as she would be accompanying her... Muskaan has a long surgery schedule so it was out of question that she get free any sooner before evening...
Anjali smile seeing the color change on her cheeks and it feels so good that they would get to enjoy another wedding and spend time other than work which didn't let them go anywhere else as it take hours... So it would be a nice change for them other then get to spend time together outside work...
'I m sure tumne Ridzy koh abhi bataya nehi hoga...' Anjali said...
'Haan woh kal raat der hogayi thi toh maine socha aaj bata dungi...' Sapna said...
'Great, actually mujhe tumse ek aur kaam hai... Muskaan busy hai toh tumhe mere saath jaana hoga...' Anjali said...
'Kaha...???' Sapna asked...
Anjali told her about the work they got to attend and Sapna just nodded in approve as it was related to work... There was no chance for her to deny so deciding to meet in the cafe' before leaving, they left to their respective wards to attend their patients...
LUNCH TIME
@MALLIK ENTERPRISE
Riddhima was just staring at the designs which was on the table, she was just frowning not being able to decide which she had been trying to do for a long time from last few hours... She was very upset and much more irritated by Armaan behavior for some unknown reason...
She was herself amaze to realized how she had been behaving but she just don't want to get herself go through any kind of check up... She try to calm down but couldn't help so she got herself busy in work but somewhere in her brain, Armaan words kept revolving...
Not being able to do anything right, Riddhima just hold her head in palm, resting her elbow on the desk... Closing her eyes, Riddhima stay like that not understanding what was happening with her... She knows she had been unnecessary stubborn and she really didn't understand why she didn't want to agree on anything with Armaan...
Lost in ther thought, she never realized there was a knock on the door unless it open making her trace broke... Riddhima look and just stare at the person with blank expression as her mind wasn't in a state to recognized anything at the moment...
'May I come in Mrs. Mallik...' The voice snap her out from whatever she was thinking...
'Di...???' Riddhima said being surprise to see her...
'Yes, main hi hun Ridzy...' Anjali said moving in...
'Aur main bhi...' Sapna said coming behind her...
'Sapz...??? Tum dono yaha...???' Riddhima asked not understanding what they were doing there...
'Armaan ne bataya nehi, hum aa rahi hai...???' Anjali asked...
'Nehi toh...' Riddhima said still being confused...
'Arey yeh toh bataya hoga na aaj yaha check up hai...???' Sapna asked...
'Haan woh...' Riddhima said as she never thought it would be them coming to do the check up...
'Oh ho Ridz, tujhe kiya huva hai...' Sapna asked sitting in front of her as she didn't invite them...
'Ridz, are you ok...??? You look disturb...' Anjali said giving her a side hug...
'Main tik hun di, I m just surprise... Armaan ne kaha toh ta aaj check up hai sabke lekin yeh nehi bataya aap dono aa rahi hai...' Riddhima said...
'Chalo accha hai, humein chance toh mila tumhe surprise dene ka...' Sapna said...
'Waise bhi kaam ke waqt milna toh possible hai nehi, toh humne socha aaj aa rahe hai toh hum saath mein lunch bhi karte hai, what say...???' Anjali asked...
'Lekin Di...' Riddhima was cut by Sapna...
'Lekin wekin kuch nehi, Armaan abhi ek meeting mein busy hai toh obviously tumhari uske saath koi plan nehi hai lunch ka... So hum teeno pehle lunch karenge, phir hum apna kaam shuru karenge...' Sapna said...
'Haan, waise bhi subah se kaam kar rahi hun... Ab toh bas kuch kha ke, kaam karpaungi...' Anjali said...
'Ok, main order de deti hun...' Riddhima said taking her mobile to call the cafe'...
'Zarurat nehi padenge princess, yeh dekho Ananya aunty ne kiya bheja...' Atul said banging in...
'Hi Atul...' Sapna said...
'Hi Sapna... Hey my love...' Atul said giving a quick hug to Anjali as he kept the tifin on the table...
'Aap kyun lekar aaye ho jiju...' Riddhima asked...
'Arey main reception se lekar aaya hun, aur jab mujhe pata chala mera biwi aaya hai toh milne ka chance kaise chod sakta hun...' Atul said winking at Riddhima...
'Right, ab aap aahi gaye hai toh why don't you join us...' Sapna said..
'Of course, waise congrats Sapna... Suna hai sagai aur shaadi fixed hogaye...' Atul said...
'Thanks Atul...' Sapna said...
'Oh haan, main toh puchna bhulgayi, kab hai sagai aur shaadi...' Riddhima asked unpacking the tifin...
'Next week sagai, two weeks baad shaadi...' Sapna said...
'Wow, so quickly...' Riddhima said...
'I know, shopping kab karenge hum...' Anjali said...
'I agree di, itni kam waqt mein kaise hoga...' Riddhima said...
'Oh ho, tum log bhi na... Kitna tension lete ho, engagement ke liye pehle karlo... Baad mein baaki functions ke liye karlena...' Atul said...
'Jiju, aap logo koh koi tension nehi hota... Waise bhi aap log jo pehle haat lagte hai, ussi mein khush hote hai...' Riddhima said...
'I know, humein kitna kuch select karna hota hai... Cloths, matching jewelry and sandals...' Anjali said...
'Aur waise bhi, jo bhi haat mein aaye woh toh le nehi sakte... Matieral and everything is very much important to check before buying...' Riddhima said...
'I agree...' Anjali said...
'Maaf karde maate, aap log se koi nehi jee sakte...' Atul said folding his hands in front of them...
'Phir argue karta hi kyun, muh kholna hi nehi chahiyeh tha aapko...' Sapna said laughing...
'Sorry, my mistake...' Atul said...
Soon they got busy with lunch and talking about when they would go for shopping... As they have work and the engagement was on coming Sunday, it would be difficult for them to get a day off... So they only get Saturday afternoon and Atul asked them to decide which shops they could get everything they need...
Like this, lunch time finished and Atul took Anjali and Sapna to the meeting room where Armaan has arrange them to work as there wasn't any other room where both can work together... Armaan welcome both girls with a hug, Riddhima just stood with a frown seeing him but didn't utter a word or look at him...
Clearly making him get the hint that she was very much upset with him and there wouldn't be a chance that he would easily be forgiven, Riddhima ignore him and let Sapna check her before she return back to her work letting Anjali and Sapna continue with their work...
After an hour, Anjali and Sapna came to bid bye to her as they had finished check up of all the employees... Having another three hours before her work end, Riddhima asked them to decide and let her know the time when they can go shopping on Saturday...
Also Riddhima tell them to inform Muskaan before they decide anything because she was fine with anytime... Anjali having to handle Anjul, they let Anjali decide a time so it would be easy for Padma as well... With guys accompanying them, they know it wouldn't be a problem to handle Anjul with their present...
NIGHT @MALLIK MANSION
Armaan and Riddhima walk in after a long day to see Billy and Ananya already waiting for them... It was past 7 30 pm, as Riddhima had inform Ananya she would be late, she has already cooked dinner with the help of maids... Billy had come three hours ago, as he got no work with Armaan around...
Ananya were in a call where else Billy was watching news, being tired, both let their bodies fall on the empty couch, closing their eyes... Riddhima call a servant to bring water for them as she stretch her legs feeling worn out because she hasn't work from last two weeks...
'Accha yeh lo aagayi tumhari bhabs, baat karo...' Ananya said passing the mobile...
'Niks...???' Riddhima asked opening her eyes hearing Ananya words...
'Haan, keh rahi hai tumne aakar ek baar bhi usse call nehi kiya...' Ananya said as she care Armaan head after giving Riddhima the mobile...
Soon Riddhima got busy talking with Nikki, Armaan hugs Ananya and stood up to go to fresh up knowing Riddhima would want after she end the call with Nikki... Also she would take half an hour to take shower after a busy day so he didn't wish to wait that long...
Ananya left to check on dinner, Billy just sit were he was but he was smiling seeing how Riddhima was laughing while talking to Nikki... Riddhima was happily telling Nikki about the trip and Sapna marriage being fixed... Nikki started to complain because she wouldn't be there to enjoy with them...
'Awww don't be sad baby, hum video call karenge... Phir waha hokar bhi tumhe lagega, tum humhare saath ho..' Riddhima said...
'Still bhabs, it would like the last wedding other than mine... Main toh apni shaadi mein maze bhi nehi kar sakti...' Nikki said...
'Kyun nehi, hum sab milke itna maza karenge tum kabhi nehi bhul paenge...' Riddhima said...
'Waise bhi bhul nehi paenge...' Nikki said...
'Right, itna important day koi bhul sakte hai kiya...' Riddhima said...
'Anyways, mom keh rahi thi aapki tabiyyat tik nehi thi... Kiya huva...???' Nikki asked...
'Arey kuch nehi, maybe itni din se ghoom rahi thi and change of atmosphere, issiliye bas takaan ho rahi thi...' Riddhima said...
'Are you sure bhabs...???' Nikki asked...
'Yes Niks, tum tension mat lo... Apne padai pe concentrate karo...' Riddhima said...
'Haan bhabs, wohi toh karti hun din raat... Waise I can't wait to go back, meri gift pending haina...'Nikki said...
'Of course Niks, main sambhalke rakka hai... Jab tum aayenge, de dungi...' Riddhima said giggling hearing her excited voice...
Riddhima very well know how she must be jumping with happiness and imagine it, she couldn't help but laugh as she kept blabbering about her day and studies... They continue to talk another ten minutes and finally they end, making Riddhima promise that she would call again soon and would do video call in Sapna engagement...
ARMAAN RIDDHIMA ROOM
Riddhima was arranging the files by the time Armaan came out, she has took out his short and shirt... Armaan had left everything else here and there before going to take a shower so Riddhima was just putting things on its right place...
As Riddhima was still upset with Armaan, without saying anything she move to the washroom... Armaan smile seeing this as she didn't scold him like she usually do if he didn't keep his stuff in there rightful place... It shows that still she was very much upset but Armaan thought not to say anything for now...
Armaan was busy in a call when Riddhima came out, without saying anything she got ready and left the room... Armaan had seen Riddhima going out so after ending the call, he also left knowing others would be waiting for him to have dinner...
By the time Armaan came down, Riddhima was serving Billy and Ananya was no where to see... Riddhima saw Armaan coming so without saying anything, she serve him too... Billy saw Riddhima being quiet and when she didn't exchange a word, he thought to ask Armaan...
'Kiya kardiya tumne mere princess koh, jo kuch bol nehi rahi...' Billy asked...
'Maine kuch nehi kiya dad, aapko aisa kyun lagta hai hamesha main usko tang karta hun...' Armaan said...
'Kyunki tum aisa hi karte ho...' Billy said...
'Kiya huva...???' Ananya asked coming from kitchen holding juice jug...
'Main bhi yeh puch raha hun, kyun mere princess itna shaant hai...' Billy asked seeing Riddhima sit with a frown...
'Kiya huva bacche...???' Ananya asked...
'Hona kiya hai, bohot ziddi hogayi hai aapki laadli...' Armaan said...
'Aap toh kuch bolo hi mat Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Kyun na bolun, aur waise bhi ab kuch nehi ho sakte...' Armaan said...
'Kiya nehi ho sakte...???' Billy asked...
'Dad, main aapse aur board member koh bataya tha na... Aaj check up hoga sabka, jabse maine yeh baat kaha, tab se madam muh phulake beiti hai...' Armaan said...
'Dad, Armaan yeh sirf meri wajahse kiya hai... Maine mana kiya toh Armaan ne yeh sab kiya...'Riddhima said...
'Kyun mana kar rahi thi...???' Ananya asked...
'Mom please, mujhe kuch nehi huva hai... Just because main zyada chocolates aur sweets khati hun, Armaann koh lagta hai mujhe kuch huva hai... Koi apni mann ki khaye toh aisa tohdina hai ki kuch huva hai...' Riddhima said...
'Haan lekin usko tumhari fikar haina bacche...' Ananya said...
'Still mom, mujhe nehi karwana check up...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin ab toh hogayi...' Armaan said with a grin...
'Haan haan, haslo... Mujhe ziddi kehte ho aur khud dekho...' Riddhima said...
'Ab tum ziddi hai toh, tumhare saath rehne ke liye mujhe bhi toh ziddi banna padega na...' Armaan said...
'Is baar karli, dubara main karne nehi dunga...' Riddhima said...
'Dubara karna padega toh bhi main karunga, aur is baar ke tarah tab bhi tum kuch nehi karpaenge...' Armaan said...
'Woh toh waqt hi bataenge Mr. Mallik...' Riddhima said standing...
'Sure Mrs. Mallik...' Armaan said smirking...
Riddhima just glare at him and left without having dinner, Billy and Ananya kept staring... When they saw Riddhima leaving, Ananya call her but she just left... Armaan just chuckle and was about to start his dinner but Billy smack his arm making him look towards him...
'Kardi na naraz bacche koh, jao aur usko bhi khila kuch...' Billy said...
'Armaan, kyun baat baat pe usse behes karte ho...' Ananya said filling his plates with more food...
'Mom, itna kyun daal rahe ho...???' Armaan asked...
'Tum akele nehi, usko bhi khila jaake... Nehi toh bhuka sojaenge...' Ananya said...
'Kiya yaar, uske nakre dekhne ki koi zarurat nehi hai...' Armaan said...
'Tik hai, phir tu bhi khana nehi khaenge aaj...' Billy said taking the plate away...
'Arey yaar, fine... Uske saath khalunga...' Armaan said holding the plate...
'Armaan, jab usse kuch accha nehi lagti toh force mat karo...' Ananya said...
'Mom, I was concern... Woh kabhi aise behave nehi karte... Aur check up karne se kiya hojata, tasalli ke liye toh kar hi sakte haina...' Armaan said...
'I know beta, lekin aise usse naraz karna... Tik nehi hai bacche...' Ananya said...
'Ab woh humhare responsibility hai, tum usse pyar se bhi usko samjha sakti hai... Aur usse khush rakhna, humhara farz hai...' Billy said...
'I know dad but maine jo bhi kiya, uske peeche reason hai...' Armaan said...
'Kiya reason hai...???' Ananya asked...
'Sahi waqt aayega, tab main aap dono koh bata dunga...' Armaan said...
'Tik hai, abhi jao aur Riddhima koh manao...' Billy said...
Some how Ananya understood what Armaan must be thinking, Billy just send him away because he didn't want Armaan to say anything unless he isn't willing to... He also understood that it might be too personal so he thought it would be better to let it for now...
Armaan left, as he enter their room, he look around to see Riddhima sitting on bed murmuring something under her breath... When she heard footsteps, she look towards the door and seeing Armaan, she just turn her face, slide down on the bed pulling the comforter over her head...
Armaan chuckle seeing her behavior, he move inside and kept the plate on side table... Than he try to pull away the comforter but Riddhima hold it tight not letting him move it... Armaan try for sometimes but when she didn't bother, than he thought to let her be...
Very well knowing she would move it once she felt his absent, Armaan left her side and went to his side as he stood to see what she do now... As expected, she slowly move the comforter and look, smiling not to see Armaan around any longer...
When her eyes laid on the plate, she frown and before she could realized his present, Armaan move on the bed and hold the comforter... Riddhima got startled, but try to move out... Armaan hold her before she could leave and pull her towards him, caging her in his arms...
'Chodo Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Uh hun...' Armaan said trying to hide his face on her hair...
'Kyun pareshan kar rahe ho...' Riddhima said trying to get out from his hold...
'Pareshan kaha kar raha hun, pyar toh kar raha hun...' Armaan said kissing her shoulder...
'Don't do that Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Accha tik hai, lekin batao... Itna naraz sirf ek check up ke liye...???' Armaan asked...
'Armaan, tum samajh kyun nehi rahe ho...???' Riddhima asked...
'Toh samjhao na jaan... Kiya baat hai...???' Armaan asked...
Riddhima stop struggling and kept quiet, she didn't look at him as she kept her gaze down... Armaan kept staring at her face but couldn't read her expression... He knows something was bothering her, some how he knows where her thoughts might be going...
'Jaan, aisa hona zaruri nehi hai ki hamesha jo hum sochte hai, chahte hai woh humhare favor mein na ho... Maine kitni baar kaha hai tumse, hamesha positive socho...' Armaan said...
'Dar lagta hai ab, sapne dekhne se...' Riddhima said...
'Jaan, tum acche se jaante ho na stress lene se kuch bhi tik nehi hote... Tumhare tabiyyat tik nehi rahenge toh kaise chalega... Ab dekho, jab hum second honeymoon pe gaye thi, tab tum kitni khush thi... Aur main chahta hun tum hamesha aise khush raho... Baaki jo hoga, woh hum baad mein dekhlenge...' Armaan said...
'Main jaan bhuj kar kuch nehi kar rahi hun Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'I know na baby, accha I m sorry... Ab main tumhe kabhi force nehi karunga check up ke liye, Ok...???' Armaan ask looking at her face...
'Pakka..???' Riddhima asked...
'Pakka... Let's have dinner now... Dekho tumne dinner nehi kiya toh, mom dad ne mujhe bhi karne nehi diya...' Armaan said making a innocent face...
Riddhima smile and took the plate, she was feeling better after talking to Armaan but still she couldn't stop thinking... When Riddhima got lost again, Armaan nudge her, opening his mouth asking her to feed him... Riddhima shake her head and started to feed him, he did the same as he ask her about what Nikki said...
Forgetting what was disturbing her, Riddhima tell him about how Nikki was complaining that she can't be in Sapna and Amit wedding... Also she inform him that about the date and when they were planning to go shopping for the functions...
Armaan was glad that for the time Riddhima forget whatever was bothering her... After dinner, they got busy in work as they discuss about a project and when it was getting late, both slept hugging each other as they were tired after working whole day...
FOLLOWING DAY
'Hi Anjali...' Armaan said answering his mobile...
'Hey, woh main yeh batane ke liye phone kiya maine saare reports tumhare office bhej diya...' Anjali said...
'That's super fast Anjie, thanks...' Armaan said...
'Arey no problem, waise bhi it was a normal check up so it didn't take much time...' Anjali said...
'Accha tumne check kiya, everything fine na...???' Armaan asked being busy in his laptop...
'Haan baaki sab toh tik hai lekin Ridzy ki report mein problem hai...' Anjali said...
'What...??? Kiya problem hai...???' Armaan asked as his fingers stop which was busy on the keyboard...
Before Anjali could answer, Armaan heard a knock and saw his PA standing outside... Even Anjali heard so she thought to let him check and come back to her... Armaan ask his PA to come and ask him to leave the reports... When his PA left, Armaan quickly search for Riddhima report...
'Armaan, main baad mein call karti hun... Or u can call later... I m sure u must be busy...' Anjali said...
'Yeah ok...' Armaan said as he found Riddhima report...
Keeping the mobile, Armaan quickly open the envelope taking out the report... For a second he stop as he felt a shiver run down his spine making him sweat badly... His heart started to beat fast but getting a grip of himself, Armaan slowly open the report...
Armaan eyes move from top to bottom as he read every single thing written on it carefully... His heartbeat started to race faster every passing minute and the moment his eyes reached the bottom, it stop as everything else in the paper fades...
Armaan just kept staring at the word, one word which was written on bold capital eight letters... Armaan was too numb to react, he couldn't move his eyes or blink his eyes... He kept holding the paper not understanding how to react, everything just fade around him as only thing he could see was those letters...
