Part 1 & 2 : Love Me always

Part 1 

Opening his eyelids a tiny bit he glanced at her standing in front of him with her hands on her hips………..



"Armaan…….get up now……its already 10 in the morning"



Opening his eyes fully…….rubbing them he got up……as he tried to sit up……he felt his head throbbing…pounding……"Ouch"

"Hmmm………Armaan I had told u ….that headache was bound to be there……..call it a hangover……obviously after ten shots……any person is gonna suffer from it……get a grip now arman………"


He looked at her pouting her lips angrily……….it was true……wat she said……..last nite despite so many warnings from rahul and objections from muskaan he hadn't stopped on the wine…….but then he was so happy………so he got on a high…….well he wasn't regretting it either………that was his way with life………..but this headache was surely killing……..



"Armaan are getting up os should I get a pail of water?"



"No bhabhi I am getting up………..from wen did u start taking to my dear brother's role of being a Hitler………"



He muttered smiling cheekily………



"Don't u dare give me that grin of urs………and do u think by calling me bhabhi am gonna melt………try ur carm on some one else.........i know u way too well to fall for it........"


"Tsk……Tsk….no bhabhi were am I charming u ………I was just practicing…….."



Getting up he went forward and whispered in her ears…….



"After all within a week u will officially be my bhabhi"



Looking at her madly blushing he chuckled…….as he made for the washroom……..



As he walked towards the dinning table he saw muskaan and rahul already there having breakfast………muskaan looked up to see him………and smiled while rahul didn't even glance……….



Looking at his brother armaanknew he was in for trouble as he very well knew that rahul hated his late nite party ways and drinks……..



"Errm…….good morning bhai……."



He looked at rahul gazing at him……."Get ready for a outburst armaan" he told himself



"Well armaan y don't u say good afternoon now as its just an hour away or soo……and y r u drinking juice……maskaan get some wine or a vodka…….my brother is on liquid diet of liquore now"



As he saw armaan opening his mouth to retort………..



"Don't u dare to argue with me……..who asked to get drunk so much????? U know how much I hate it……..wasnt papa enough………how can u forget the pain he gave us with his wild ways…….armaan I cannot see u going the same way……..u know how much it pains me wen I see u in that state…….u having a new babe everyday in ur arms and partying practically everyday…………no armaan this is enough……..u either stop or I take a drastic step………is this all u hav to do in life……..women and wine……..i pity the girl who gets married to u ………she will have a tough time……."



Armaan knew he had touched the nerve this time……..



Getting up he went forward and sat next to rahul……looking down he said……..



"Bhai I am really sorry to have hurt u ………..u know I am not into drinking…………yes I do go overboard on nite outs and parties but I can never go on papa's way ……….believe me…….yesterday I was really happy Bhai………u know the reason rite……..I have finally got the position of a senior doctor in sanjeevni……….my dream came true………I returned to India only to work in sanjeevni………wasn't it ur dream as well Bhai……imagine u will so proud wen u see me there……..Dr Shanshank was very impressed with me…..my caliber……….everyone thought that being Rahul Mallik's brother who is himself one of the best docters in sanjeevni I would haveeasily got that position but Bhai I got it because of my steam……….thats y I was so happy……..sorry bhai……..it will not happen again……..and talking about women……..well bhai I don't believe in love or marriage………."



Rahul looked at his eager face and gave him a tight hug……



"No armaan I forgive u Bro…….i understand………but love is the most beautiful thing that can happen and marriage just seals it forever………don't let our past affect our future armaan………u will find ur soulmate……..as I hav founf muskaan"



Muskaan smiled widely at rahul……..rahul looked at her and winked……lowering her gaze she continued smiling…….



Looking at this armaan smiled………he loved seeing his brother care so much for his love………and muskaan loving him back equally………armaan hoped nothing would ever come in between them……..



"Bhai I know u hav found ur love………..but I don't believe in in love………and even if love happens I do not believe in marriage because ………….." He just cudnt continue further………


Rahul looked at armaan and knew wat he was about to say…….he placed his hand on his shoulder and continued



"Armaan just because ma left papa doesn't mean all marriages go like that……….Mama –papa were just never meant for each other……….."



"Bhai how many times have we discussed this………wat mama did ti my dad was aweful………I can never forget my papa's pain……….he turned to alcohol after she left him………he forget we were there……….his own blood………just bcoz she left him………."



Saying so armaan went up to his bedroom………..Rahul sighed……….Muskaan placed a reassuring hand on his…………..



"Rahul………don't worry there will come day wen armaan will learn the meaning of love………..the beauty of  it………..he will himself release that all marriages don't go the wrong way………he understands us……our love ………so will he understand himself and his love one day……….just let his love walk into his life……….the day such a girl enters his life he will himself put himself together"



"I hope its not too late muskaan………I just hope he doesn't land up playing with anyone's heart………"



Sighing rahul looked at muskaan



"Wen is he joing sanjeevni?"



"Tomorrow"

Helping Kaka clear up the breakfast table she starred at the door expectantly…….."Di wud come any moment………..Oh how eager she was to meet jiju and her………


"Tring…Tring…."

She ran forward to open the door……..

"Diiii………jiju……."
Riddhima ran forward to give them a combined hug……..

Anjali smiled as she saw her sister ………as they entered the main hall………


"Wat r u two doing here???? Don't u both now I don't like seeing you both here"

Ridz turned behind to see him standing at the staircase
....................................

 PART 2



Riddhima turned behind to look at him standing on the staircase……the face filled with pure fury…….as Dr Shanshank walked  down ……



"Dad" he looked at her with a deadly stare……….asking her to keep quite……….anjali looked over as riddhima moved to a corner like a mouse ………



"So may I ask who invited u here Mr and Mrs Joshi?"…….



Atul and Anjali looked at the sarcastic tone in which Shanshank addressed them………Anjali moved forward…….Atul held hand frm behind………..stopping her……….Anjali looked into his as he gave her a small reassuring smile…….



"I don't like repeating myself ………Anjali wat r doing here with ur so-called husband?.......Wait r u both cum to inspect our gardens ……….yeah Atul to see which plant is growing how………..as it is u always seemed more concerned abt them rather than blood samples,surgeries and patients................"



Unable to control her temper Anjali moved forward………



"Dad…….y r u starting it all over again……..i know u never liked Atul………my choice…….but its my life……..Atul loves me and I love him………but u will never understand the word love na dad……….hav u ever………Where were u wen we were growing up………u killed our mother slowly with ur arrogance……with ur lack of intrest………with ur indifference towards her……."



"Had u ever come and asked Padma wat did u do tday?Padma how r my daughters?"







"No dad u were never there for us…….u loved ur...........work…….ur ambitions……ur pride……u never loved ur family………do u even know wen ur daughters grew up? ………so now when I have made my choice y r u so angry? Atul may love plants more than operation theater and files but he has a heart of gold which is full of nothing but love for me"



"Haha Anjali beta finished with ur.......... preaching about love…….u know love isn't the only thing in life………u need money…..a driving ambition to move forward………which ur loving husband doesn't hav………he may love u but he will never progress mark my words…."



"And papa without love life ceases to exist………"



"Papa I am here to meet riddhima not argue with u "



Riddhima watched Shanshank leave in anger………it was always like this………



But wat anjie had said was true too……..he was never there for them……….but then too she wished things weren't so bad………



Anjali always rebelled………..she blamed him for the the death of their mother……….



nd somewer deep inside riddhima knew it was true………she was never told how Padma died……..Anjali knew………but had always kept her away from the truth………she told her............."Riddhima its better u stay away frm it………ur so tender and gentle……..it will break u "



She trusted her sister completely……..but still she wud hav liked to have Anjali share it with her………..Papa wud never tell her………infact he hardly talked to her………..in her so many years………they had hardly talked………then she was sent away to America……..Riddhima felt so lonely……..she was always so lonely………completely alone……..



"Hello Riddhima?.........wer r u lost?"



Riddhima looked at Anjali calling her………she wiped away her tears and went towards her………as they hugged she looked at atul who patted her head……….sitting down she asked……….



"Di wats the great news……tell me na pls…."



"Riddhima ur gonna be a massi"



"Wat Di!!!!!!! That means ur ………….?"



"Yes my darling sister I am pregnant……..the reports are positive………"



Riddhima hugged her sister tightly……..feeling her happiness……..



"Jiju congratulations………ur gonna be a father OMG I am really happy for u both"



"Anjali tell her the other great news too" Atul grinned ……..



"Ohh yes riddzzyy……..u hav been selected as junior doctor at sanjeevni………"



"Wat Di……r u serious……..i mean…….."



"Ohh ridzy ofcourse I am………though ur the great Dean Dr Shanshank's daughter u had tough competition…….i mean u were selected for ur scores………I am so proud of u  and u have to come for the introductory lecture today, as far as I know ridzy u r going to be under a new senior doctor……..he is joining today too……..he is Dr rahul's brother……"



"Di this is awesome……..two great news in one day………"



Standing at the door shanshank looked over at them hugging……….thinking………



"So now my daughter is carrying that looser's child………well I cant do anything abt it but yes riddhima………I will have to think abt her……..cant see her going anjali's way falling in love with some fool……..definitely think about her "



She got down smiling from the car as she looked at sanjeevni………how she had wished her papa to be with her at this moment………but still Anji di and jiju were there………as they walked in……..



"Hey Anjali……..wats the great news?"



Riddhima looked over as Dr rahul came and greeted them………he was their family friend………Dr Mallik and Dr Shanshank had been great friends…….as far as she remembered rahul had a brother………..but she had been in US for so long that she didn't remember his name……."



"Hey riddhima……….How r u ?........remember me……..Rahul………ofcourse u wont……….Anjie tell me the news quick…….muskaan has been asking me wat it is since morning………u know her na……..always impatient…….told her ask Anjie urself in the hospital…….So riddhima………all set…….."



He smiled as she nodded her head……..rahul always found riddhima as such a gentle soul……..tender at heart……..she cudnt even kill a fly…….he thought………I hope she doesn't have to undergo more heart-breaks…….she already has enough with her father and Anjie fights……..hope she finds someone who will take care of her…….who will understand……..accept her as she is……..not want her to change……."



"Well Dr Riddhima u will be assisting my brother………aahh here he is"



Riddhima looked over to see him walking towards them……..dressed in blue jeans and black shirt he looked breath takingly handsome as ever……..as she saw him approach her………..her thoughts flew……….black was always his colour she thought……..even that time………during the party……….







"Come on riddhima at have a drink….."



She looked at sapna waving the glass in front of her……as amit slid his hand slowly over sapna's waist……….



Giggling sapna looked at amit……..



"Amit stop it………I know we r going around but pls control urself……….u haven't asked my parents yet"



"Oh so do I have take ur parent's permission to catch hold of ur waist"



Giggling sapna continued arguing……..while riddhima looked over amused at her friend………she looked so much in love…………how she wished she too had a companion tonite……….the party was boring........but........as this was the farewell party cum reunion ……….her last but……..as finally she would be going back to India……….she looked over………almost all were with someone……….sapna-amit seemed lost in their world……………..not wanting to disturb them……..she went to the counter……….



"One orange juice pls"



"Hmmmm orange juice…….nice choice…….y not add something more to it……..?"



Riddhima turned to see him starring at her………those grey eyes……..seemed to see deep through her……….he looked strikingly handsome in the Armani………….coming back to her senses…………



"No thankyou but I don't drink…….."



"Hmm that's even better……."



She looked at him smile……..dimples showing …….making him look all the more attractive………



"So can I ask the fair lady a dance"



Looking at him putting out his hand……….riddhima found herself giving her hand willingly in his………..as he led her to the dance floor……….she found herself gazing at him……….seeing him return her gaze she lowered her eyes……….as the music began………he placed her hand on his shoulders while held another in his palm………placing his hand on her waist………he pulled her closer……….his touch seemed to have sent a current down her spine…….as he twirled and brought her back………his grip on her waist tightened……….looking up into his eyes she found herself loosing herself in it.



Breaking the unusual  silence he asked………..



"U know we have been dancing for past half an hour and yet I don't know ur name……..i am sure ur name will be as beautiful as u are……."



Blushing slightly at his comment she knew he was flirting…………afterall she looked like a complete plain jane at the party compared other gals…….and here the hottest hunk of the party was commenting on her………..it was now she noticed how all the others especially women were starring at them………



But strangely she didn't mind his flirting…….she wondered………wats happening to me……….y is he affecting me so much……..she had just known for past 30 mins and he was making her go weak in her knees……..



"Errm…….honey u didn't answer my question"



Startled to hear honey she looked at him……..smiling cheekily he said



"Honey ur name "



"Oh sorry…….its Riddhima……..Riddhima Gupta and u ?"



"Armaan ………..nice name Riddhima…….very nice………"



"So armaan…….r u a student of this univ……I haven't seen u around………."



"Well honey I was a student……..graduated two years ago………practicing as a doctor here but soon I will be shifting to India……this was my last reunion………so thought I'll attend….."



"Really I will be going back too……….as soon as results are out"



"Awesome I hope we meet there riddhima"



As the song ended…….they stopped and made their way from the dance floor………



"It was nice knowing u "



As she shook his hand………she felt a shock running throught her hands……..



She looked over as he danced with other women  smiling……….she felt her hand……..wer he had touched……….a smile unknowingly formed on her lips…………..

"Riddhima r u falling love?"

she thought to herself…………"I hope we meet again armaan"

She looked at the same million dollar smile……..on his face as he approached her……..she cudnt believe it him………

She starred at those same grey eyes as he held out his hand……..

"Hello Dr Armaan here"
