Last part : The Suprise (ARff)

When he woke up again it was due to some tapping sound. He opened his eyes blinking them to d light. She was not by his side. He sat up n found her sitting on the couch opposite to the bed, her hair wet from the shower, wearing  a red saree, staring at him, an expression of fury on her face n tapping her heeled sandals on the floor.

He smiled at her sheepishly as she frowned deeper. She angrily twisted her fingerz n he knew he had to face the wrath now.

"Woudn't it be better tht u speak urself before i force u to??" she finally asked, sarcasm dripping in her voice.

"But honey...yesterday u said u dun want to know anythng.....we definately had better thingz to do.." ..he replied carefully...risking to flirt wid her further. He smiled when he saw her blush at his comment.


"I was just not in a proper mental state....i was shocked.."

"Where you..i am sorry."..he got up n started moving towardz her. She threw a pillow at him and he landed back on the bed.

"Ouch....are u planning to kill ur husband on the very next day of our marriage??"..he overacted his wordz.

"Husband my...." she got up, standing straight, hands on her hips. "Would u explain what was all this abt??"

"It was meant as a surprise for you sweetheart....n i know u liked it..."

"Liked it my foot....is this even a way of surprising someone.?" she asked him her anger rising.

"But u had said u wdn't mind how someone surprised u...dun u remember.??"
.........................................................

"So you love surprises?"

"Yeah i do....dad gives me a surprize birthday party every year...." she said munching on her omlet.

"But if he givez it to you every year its not a surprise right?"

"Yeah i know...but dad feels very happy when i am happy....so i never let him know that i had guessed it all before...i like to see him happy...but i suppose this time ...he will jus b able to wish me....i am sure he will throw a party once i return..."

 
"So what kind of surprises do you like?"

"Anything and everything....."...she replied
"Are you sure Miss Gupta??......their might be surprises u wont like....i mean the ways otherz plan to surprise you?"

"Thats not poss u no......watever they do ....it will be for making me happy right?/...so y won't i like it???....."
 ...................................................

She remebered thr convo n undstd what he meant.

"So Miss gupta...oops...Mrs. Mallik...how did u like d surprise.??" he asked grinning naughtily.

"You moron....i hate you for u this...i hadnt meant this way  when i said tht..."

"Well then you should have set conditions before..."...he was enjoying her coming to boiling point.

"So that means every1 knew about it..thts y every1 was calm...i dun beleve it u even got mom dad into it....."

"You see...no one can resist Armaan Mallik's charm...i am simply irresistable..."

"Your a cheat....if this was it thn y did u have to come in my room yesterday like tht..?"

"Oh that was jus 2 confuse a lil more..n mreover..it wld have been difficult for u 2 get married widout somethng to thnk abt during d cermonies....i thought ur mind wld still b on my visit .n i knw i was right" he added grinning wildly..."n how wld i gve u tht photograph as a present if i hadn't come.?"

She realised tht it was jus wat had happnd....she had been still under d spell of his visit when d cermonies were going on,,,n whch surely had made it hell easier...but hell!!! how d hell could he do it??


"So tht was a present?"She asked...Her anger reachng points.

"It wasn't?? u din like it??"

"No....nor do i like you..."

He pulled her up n made her sit beside him.

"Really?? let me see how true that is??" He asked moving closer to her.

She pushed him back n hit him hard on his hand.

"I am gonna punish u for this surprise thingy...u just see..."

He ran for his life and she ran after him as they both played cat n dog around the room. Finally tired she sat on the bed panting n he came n sat beside her showing the peace sign...n Finally she smiled.

"You dunnu what you mean to me Armaan....i still can't beleve its true.....din u think once tht i wld be hurt thru ur plan.....??"

"I did honey" he said getting somber. " But your ultimate happiness gave me the strength n ofcourse Muskaan's persistance."

"Muskaan"s??" she asked puzzled.

And with that he narrated d whole thing to her as she realised tht every1 was involved in it except her. She made a mental note to check them all out later n give them a piece of her mind...Whch surely they werent gonna enjoy..or were they??

"But what if i had done somethng stupid out of depression....like kill myse..",,she stopped when he placed a finger on her lips.

"Dun even say such a thng ok??I can't even let u thnk abt it.."he said seriously..thn getting back to his cheekiness he added in a royal manner.."But u see,,,Ur great husband thinks everthng over....incase u din notice..i made it a point u werent left alone for even a secnd thruout d preparationz....where u??

She thought over it. Yes it was true. She hadn't been left alone even once for a min once d marriage was dcided. She nodded in agreement, lost in recollecting everythng as he finishd d whole story.

When he finished they hugged each other n she whispered to him.

"I won't say I loved it but I  did like the surprise Armaan "

"I understand honey.....n I promise never to do such a thing again."

"There isn't even a chance at it...i am going to keep a check at u..."

He grinned to himself as d both, wrapped in each otherz armz prayed for each other silently.

...................................................................................................................................................

Riidhima waited at d arrival terminal eagerly for Armaan. He was returning from Singapore after two whole weeks of his conference.

Once married, life was heaven for them. There love, fights, bickering filled Mallik mansion with laughter, joy n happiness.

But today was a special day n Riddhima was excited. It was her chance to give Armaan a surprise n she had got two whole weeks to prepare for it. She waited excitedely for him n kept peering towardz d arrivall gates. His flight had landed n he should have been out by now.

"Waiting for me Mrs. Mallik??" Came his voice from behind her as his hand went arnd her n turned her arnd straight into a hug.

She hugged him back smiling n thn withdrew realising d were in public.

"Hmm...You look good....Missed me??" He asked as d both started walking towardz d exit to d car, his one arm wrapped arnd her waist possesively n d other pulling his bag.

"Nah...i had better thingz to do..." she replied honestly n he sensed it. He was disappointed though. How was it she hadn't missed him when he had missed her every secnd n 2 weeks had semed 2 months.

"Aww....dun get sad now.."She said readng his expression...." I did miss u..bt nt much...i was busy planning a surprise for u."

"He gave her a quizzical look.

"How do u expect me to be surprised when u have already told me to expect one?"

"Oh never mind tht"..she said matter of factly." You will see tht u will be surprised.

They drove bak home. Armaan trying to guess d whole way what it could be bt getting a no from her for his guesses.

After reachng home Riddhima went straight into d kitchen to get him some home made food ready. He followed her thr.

"Now tell me what is it..we have reached home also na.."..he asked like a small boy eager to get a gift.

"Whats d hurry honey..relax..y dun u go up n fresh up...we will have lunch first.."..she replied grinning knowing how eager he was to know what it was.

"Fine...i will freshen up first..."..he said rather disheartened.

"N listen"..she called back.."could u keep ur handcarry in the room next to ourz..i will unpack it when i get free."..She told him trying to keep d excitement out of her voice.

"Hmmm...alrite"..he called back n piked his bag n went upstairs to place it in the room next to thrz.

He walked lazily thru d door...n stopped dead at sight tht met him.

He was not surprised. He was SHOCKED.

"Oh my god!!!he whispered n thn screamed her name."Riddhima!!!"

She waited in d kitchen smiling n heard him scream her name as her smile widened. He came running back down..straight to d kitchen.n stared at her disbeleivingly.

"Is it true??" he whispered.."Are you??"

She nodded her head in answer. And the next moment she was up in his arms twirling around.

"Oh my god...I am gonna be a dad!! A dad!!!"

He carried her upstairs to d room next to thrz..or in other wordz a nursery she had already prepared for thr baby.

It was a mixture of baby pink n blue wid toys, teddy bears, a cradle n everythng else. They stood thr gazing at d room, smiling.

"I love you Riddhima....This is d best of best surprises i can ever get."...n saying so he pulled her into a kiss filled wid love, standing in the room whch wld blong to thr baby. Their love was eternal, everlasting n immortal.

The rest, as they say, is history????

No no no....i wld change tht here.

The rest, as I say, is Future.
