Part 5 : Pulse

"I have spoken to Amit to postpone the wedding!" Sapna looked over at her parents in the living room.  Riddhima need her now more then ever and she wanted to be there for her and not think about anything eles.

"Why?" Sapna turned to see Riddhima walk into the room dressed in her red satin sleeping attire…

"You need me!" Riddhima looked at her as she shook her head.

"I do not! Infact the wedding is helping me to keep my mind of the facts… anyway I don't want to get in the way of your future!" Sapna looked at her as she sat next to her mother and placed her head on her shoulder gentle.

"Amma Sapna is scared of commitment and using me as an excuse she's got cold feet!… especial since the marriage is in a couple of days…" Sapna looked at her mother placing her hand gentle on Riddhima face as she closed her eyes.

"You two need to talk… come on Ji lets leave them alone!" Riddhima watched them leave the room and looked over at Sapna as she stood looking at the window..as she got up and walked over towards Sapna

"Riddhima are the most selfish person I have ever met in my LIFE!" Riddhima looked at her as the tears ran down her face.

"I am goin to miss you too Sapna!" as they held each other they both sobbed.

"Look stupid! My life has always been a mess and you and the family have given me everything ….so now its time for Pandora to open the box!" Sapna looked at her totally surprised.

"But Ridhima?" Sapna looked at her as she released her

"Anjali and I have met several times now …I have decided to go to London and him!" Sapna looked over at her and knew the last couple of days where hard as Riddhima totally shut everyone out and stayed at the orphanage most evening…talking to Father Joseph.

"I am coming with you!" Riddhima looked at the stubborn look on Sapna face and shook her head at her.

"You have a future with Amit to secure and I don't want to get in the way of that!… as for me I need to understand who I am before I can move on in my life… I look at myself in the mirror and see a face … and I ask myself Who am I? Do I have my mothers looks? or my fathers eyes? Looking at Anjali I feel a connection I have never felt before…."

"You goin to forget US!" as the tears ran down Ridhima and Sapna face they held each other

"NO I cant never forget and I'm not going anywhere!… but Sapna I need you!" Sapna took hold of her as she sob uncontrollable in her arms


As the brass band played Riddhima looked Amit standing before them in the entrance….as they welcomed him in ensuring the custom where performed…As Riddhima stood throwing flowers as they walked around the sacred fire… as she felt the flowers on her face she turned to see Armaan smiling next to her.

"Hey sweetheart!…hmm how are you?" he looked at her as she looked stunning in gold as she gave him that smile.

"Hi Armaan you made it!" She looked at him dressed in white

"Ouch! That hurt Ridz!" she looked at him place his hand on his heart looking divested!… feelin her elbow in his ribs he looked at her giggling at her.

"Oye hoye you look so beautiful when you laugh!" he looked at her blush slightly as she looked away.

"Stop it Armaan!" he looked at her and smiled.

"I want to ask you something Ridhima alone!" she looked at him as he took her hand and led her away from anyone.

As she looked up at the stars he took a deep breath and closed his eyes…she turn to see him on his knee and looked at him.

"Will you marry me?" dumb stuck and shocked as he held the large diamond ring in his hand.

"Armaan?" he looked at her as looked surprised.

"I cant image a single moment without and …" she looked at him as he stood up.

"Armaan please… I don't know what to say?…and to tell you the truth I don't know what I feel for you…" he look at her and smiled as he took hold of her.

"Marry me and I will give you the world!" hearing her take a deep sigh he looked at her…

"Who am I Armaan?" he looked at her as she pulled away from him.

"I don't know who I am?? and where I come from??… everyone know there existence as for me? It would be better for both of us to just spend sometime apart!" he looked at her and smiled.

"I have come to far Riddhima and I love you… and feel alive for once in my life.. My life is empty and you make it worth it you know!… I don't care about you're past and just want you in my future!" as a lone tear ran down her cheek

"I cant do this Armaan!" he looked at her as she ran away

"No matter what you do Riddhima…. I will never leave you!" he ran after her and found her in the bedroom on the bed crying.

"Hey!" she looked at him kneeling on the bed pulling back her hair…. As he felt her arms pull her close to him he smiled.

"I love you and will wait!…." she pulled back and looked at him

"I am not worth of you Armaan and will not marry you or see you again…after tonight!" he looked at the stern look on her face as she wiped her tear.

"Of course you will!" he looked at her shake her head.

"I need to discover who I am and im leaving tonight!" she looked at his face.

"Leaving for where?" he looked at her as she looked away…with his heart pounding …. This hurt she told herself as she closed her eyes to look at him

"I never told you…love you! So why are you pressuring me! With this!!" he looked at her getting off the bed.

"I want to be free of this …thing which you think we have!…you have been dictating this entire thing…but I want no part of it anymore!"

"Ok!" she looked at him with that cheesy grin looking at her.

"No Armaan! It's over and …" feeling him pull her towards him he looked at me.

"I am going to give you…all the time in the world" feeling his lips on hers for the first time she melted in his arms… how she loved him but knew he could do better and was wasting his time with her…she was going to disappear from his life……

As she packed the suitcase she looked over at the room which she shared with Sapna …fulled of memories she looked over at there photo and placed it in her bag.

"Amma can you give this letter to Armaan and tell him I am sorry"
