Chapter 4 : Obsessed...

Next Morning, 8:00


"Riddima, you were suppose to wake me up not the vice verse" Anjali shook her. "Good morning Di, Sorry, sleep late at night." Riddimaa spoke yawning and coming out of her dreamworld. "Huh? But you slept even before the timing..!" Anjali pointed while picking up a dress "No, actually – I was In the bed but not Sleeping...." Riddimaa crossed her legs in the bed, looking down. Anjali cocked her eyebrows and looked at her sulking over something and she did guessed that it was about 'Arman' she thought

Chapter 9 : Numb

Armaan stood outside the changing room impatiently waiting for Riddhima to come out. It had been a good 4 hours since they had entered the mall and Armaan wanted to leave. Ever since Armaan had brought Riddhima and Eva to live with him Riddhima hadn't been able to buy herself new clothes. She had been borrowing his. And today after coming home from an early emergency at the hospital Riddhima had asked him to take her shopping. Armaan had wanted to protest really bad but seeing the pleading look in her eyes he didn't have the heart to say no. And so he had like a good boyfriend agreed to take her shopping.

 God what is taking this woman so long? I mean how long does it take to change? Like 5 minutes for a normal person? And yet she has been in there for 20! Man she's lucky she's hot and I love her. If she was someone else dude I would have left! Fruitloop! Hurry Up!

part 22 : The Green Blue Hues


His eyes closed right after a second he opened them; the sharp light in the room was blinding him and try as he might, he couldn't open his eyes for the next few seconds. He sat up in bed with his eyes still closed, then rubbed them slightly and opened them, yawning loudly. His vision blurred and then adjusted to the light, and he saw the room basking in the sunlight directed right into his room from the open window. He stretched himself and yawned again, then looked on the other side of the bed, which was empty and unmade. Wondering why Riddhima had woken up so early in the morning, unlike everyday, he jumbled out of his bed and walked over to the bathroom, knocked once and when he didn't get a reply, he got in.

After a refreshing shower, Armaan walked downstairs to see the hall still empty. It was only 8 in the morning, and as everyone had taken an off from the office and colleges for the wedding functions would start the next day, thus he concluded that everyone must be sleeping. Grabbing an apple from the bowl, he walked out of the house in search of Riddhima. He hadn't been able to talk to her when he had gotten back home last night, as she had been sleeping and he didn't want to disturb her. First, he had to talk to her about the whole wedding issue and how they were going to tell everyone the truth. Then, he had to ask her about yesterday; for he had noticed that something was bugging her and that's why she was pissed off, and he wanted to know what it was.

Chapter 3 : Obsessed...

"Sister, mai abhi ghar ja ke atti hoon – 2 hours ka baad meri reporting hours hain naa?" Riddimaa confirmed, while signing on register "Jee Dr.Riddimaa, App ki ab duty 9:00 bjha hai -" pause "ok sister. Aur Koi bhi emergency hou tou mujha inform kijeaya ga" with that Riddimaa walked out of the hospital with a smile – remembering the events that she had gone through from last 24 hours – she knew this was a particular 24 hours which she would cherish forever. "Taxii..."



--x-X-x--

"maa – papa. I am Home..!" She walked in happily to see her parents having their breakfast with a bit chit chat and 'off-course, Dad's second love 'Newspaper' just beside him' she thought while hugging and planting a kiss on her parents cheek, respectively. "So tired? Riddimaa..." pause "Off course mom... need something good too eat - make it fast till then I be going up stairs to freshen up." Riddimaa made her way upstairs to her room.

Chapter 8 : Numb


Riddhima leaned against the wall and dropped to the ground as her body could no longer support her weight. Her mind was still reeling with a million questions flowing through her mind. It had been a week and she could still feel the touch of his fingers gripping her arms and pulling her towards him. She could still feel the sent of his breath mingling with hers. She could still feel the touch of his lips coming in contact with hers. She could still hear her screams echo through the room. She could still picture how she had fought him off and run out of the room. She could still see how everyone had run after her asking what was wrong. She could still hear the banging of knuckles against the closed door. She could still hear everyone's voice's from behind it asking her to open it. Riddhima closed her eyes no longer being able to take it. She wanted to scream. She wanted to erase that day forever. She wanted to erase his touch from her body. She wanted this nightmare to end. The tears that she had been trying to control finally began to flow even faster and before she knew it Riddhima had wrapped her arms around her knees and began to break down once more as that horrid day replayed in her mind all over again.


part 21 : The Green Blue Hues

The game had been going on for quite some time now, probably hours. They had lost track of time, as they often did whenever they actually got down to bringing out the fateful board and started playing. Today, it had been a sudden mood swing brought on by the lady in question, who had turned the whole room upside down, and finally found he dusty board lying on top of the cupboard. It was these unusual rare moments when both of them could actually sit together and give each other some time. Otherwise, she was usually busy with the kids and Armaan, while he often tried to steer clear of the whole situation.

Rahul and Riddhima, though were cousins, had never shared too much of a close relationship. True, they were good friends and often did hang out together, and many a times had they had an awesome time when together. However, they had never shared a personal close 'brother-sister' relationship. The reason behind it could more so be the fact that Riddhima had never found the need to open up to anyone or be emotionally close to them, as Armaan was always there for her. He was like, in the

Chapter 2 : Obsessed...

'Hayyyee – Arman. How do you feel when your Dream Come true – I mean, I have been a admirer- Lover of Arman Malik; the single heir OF Malik family from last 5 years, yea when I was only 17 and he? He was 21 – I mean, is it attraction? I mean, it can't be loved I am just obsessed about him' pause 'magar dewange bhii tou – ek pyar karna ka anndaz hai... tou kya mai.....' pause 'Magar, he is never serious about girl naa – I don't want to be another girl, which he uses and leaves...' pouting while looking up at sky, which was turning orange with a shade of blue and black 'OH God, please give me Resistance to keep my self away from him' pause

Chapter 7 : Numb

-Flashback-



"Mommy?"

 Hearing the sound of Eva's voice Armaan and Riddhima who had been lost in each other came out of their dreamland and backed away from each other. They had never been so embarrassed in their life. How could they have forgotten that Eva was still in the room. God knows what she was thinking.


"Wat doing?"

 What were they doing? Oh god. How am I going to answer that one. Riddhima thought as she saw Eva looking at her dead in the eye waiting for an answer.


part 20 : The Green Blue Hues

Armaan had helped them move into the small two bedroom apartment they had found together. He had been formally introduced to Misha and Ryan as a 'friend' and no questions had been asked. Riddhima was extremely grateful to him for all his help, yet she couldn't figure out why he was doing so much for them, they were practically strangers. So, after they were done with the moving in and everything had been sorted out, they both walked down to a deli to grab some food for everyone and while sitting in their booth, waiting for the food to come, Riddhima had at once looked up at him and spilt it out.

Riddhima: why are you doing this Armaan…??

Armaan looked at her surprised, then looked down at himself…

Armaan: what…playing with the mobile…(flashing it before her eyes)

Riddhima sighed and looked at him…

Chapter 1 : Obsessed...



"Mom, I am Off too work, Aree Chachu app?" the guy passes his briefcase to a well-dress driver, who moved out of the house with it."Kase hain?" the guy, embraced a man around 40 – 45 years old. "Mai theek hoon Arman. Tum suno Kesa hou? Aur kesa Chal raha hai Tumhara Business." Billy spoke, brother of Arman Malik's father. "Everything is going awesome, but Chachu I have to go right away -" looking at his wrist watch "My meeting is probably gonna start any moment" he added.


"Ok Ok... off you go – but we gonna have a long chat in evening" pause "Promise Chachu" Arman added and went away after giving a tight hug to Billy and then planting a small kiss on her mom's forehead and rushing out. After a final good bye.


--x-X-x--


"Hello, Raj ? Yea coming just on my Way – say the delegates to wait – I be there in few minutes..." Arman spoke, while settling in the car – and hinting the driver to move on quick through hand. "Raj, do stand out of the hotel with the file – I want to review it once more before talking to them" pause, smiling while hearing the person Raj, speaking on the other end. "Sorry Raj, u again caught me Man, seriously last night, I went for a date – mom fixed me up for you know marriage and all; well then I came late and that's what the result is." Arman ended his daily banter.

Chapter 6 C: Numb

"Umm...Hi."



Okay what is going on? What is he doing here?

Riddhima stared at him bewildered. She was shocked to say the least that he was standing in front of her despite the way she had behaved with him. She had thought he would still be mad at her and wouldn't talk to her for days and yet he was standing in front of her as if everything was normal. She was about to voice her confusion when he spoke up stopping her mid way.

 "Okay. I know you are probably wondering why I am here. I mean after I put myself out there and told you how I felt ,you must have never thought that I would be back so soon. Well see the truth is Rahul came over and he helped me to see that I shouldn't have acted so rashly. I should have given you a chance to at least say something. And for that I'm really sorry."

Part 19 : The Green Blue Hues (AR ff)

They had stayed the night in a hotel, and Riddhima gave Misha strict orders to rest as she went out looking for an apartment. She had become an adult, the leader of the family, from a mere teenager in the matter of one night. The whole day she searched for apartments and jobs, and when nothing came her way, she walked to the basket ball court, and sitting there, let her guard down for the first time and started sobbing hysterically. He came again, as usual, and this time she was so heartbroken that as soon as he arrived, she threw herself into his arms and cried her heart out, while he just patted her back, holding her close for long.

She had parted from him, and he had lightly smiled down at her. That night, they had made formal introductions for the first time. Riddhima was surprised to hear herself again telling him al the events of last night. He had been shocked to hell, and before she could do anything, he held her hand and made her sit in his car, and before she knew, they were standing outside the hotel they were staying in.

Last chapter : Deception

As the clock struck 9 pm a normally exhausted Armaan entered his house with the biggest smile plastered onto his face. Today had been one of the best days of his life. He couldn't believe how a few hours ago his life had completely changed. He had not only learned about who Riddhima truly was but he had also gained her love. He had been slightly afraid after he had told Riddhima about Ava and his past but she had surprised him by not only accepting his past but had accepted Ava too and for that he couldn't be more happy. Armaan had been so lost in his thoughts that when the sound of someone calling him finally entered his ear drums he popped out of his dream land.



"DAD!"



"Oh sorry Ava. I didn't hear you."


Chapter 6 B: Numb

August 17th 2011


Today will go down as one of the worst days of my life. I should have never listened to Rahul. I should have never told Riddhima that I love her. Yeah that's right. I told her I love her and what did she say...nothing. She said absolutely nothing and you know why. Because she doesn't love me. I ruined everything. This is all my fault. Why did I have to take that chance? Why did I have to listen to my heart? What must she be thinking about me now? She must think I'm just some desperate love seeking guy. She probably doesn't even want to see me anymore. And why would she? I mean I made a complete fool out of myself in front of her. I didn't even stop when Rahul tried to ask me what was wrong. God  why couldn't this all be just a bad dream. I finally fall in love and I ruin it. I lost her. But the worst part is I'm still her doctor. I still have to see her. I'm just going to have to keep my distance. I don't know how I'm going to do that but I guess I will just have to try. I'm sorry Riddhima. I'm sorry Eva. I'm really sorry.

Part 18 : The Green Blue Hues (AR ff)

Riddhima looked at Rhea and Ryan playing with Armaan, and her mind wandered to the past amidst all the laughter and squealing.



Flashback

The first thing she remembered about her childhood was the adoption centre. She had lived there as long as could remember, and had been surprisingly happy there. Having never been acquainted with parental love, she found solace in the company of her friends at the centre, and the absolutely adorable and gorgeous Miss Samantha, whom everyone called Sam. She was Riddhima's idol, she went behind her wherever she went, tagging along to the grocery stores and to the shopping malls whenever she could. The one thing that Riddhima was obsessed about since childhood was reading; she was an avid reader and spent most of her time buried in books. Her life had been going as normally as a 5 year old's could, despite the lack of parental love and care. And then one day they came.

chapter 6 B : Deception

 -FlashBack-

 My name is Armaan Mallik as you already know. I'm 27 years old. I'm an only child. I have been a police officer for the past 8 years. I was born and raised in New York. I come from a blended family. My father Billy is from a small town in India. He came here when he was 17 years old after his parent's or my grandparents passed away. He didn't have any real ambitions at the time. He just wanted to start a new life. He's a simple guy. He doesn't like to make things complicated when they don't have to be. He's a business man here. He runs his own company and is pretty busy with it. My mom Molly on the other hand is a New Yorker. She was born and raised here. She's Christian. So you can imagine what happened when my Dad fell in love with my mom. His whole world changed. He had to learn proper English as my mom didn't understand a word of Hindi. My dad still tells me stories of how he used to communicate with her. He would say one thing and she would take it in a whole other way. But then again I guess love has its way. Language doesn't pose as an obstacle. It finds a way to make things work. And that's what happened with my parents. They put aside the fact that they were from two different worlds and just accepted each other the way they were. But I guess that doesn't always happen with everyone. Not everyone is as lucky as they are. I should know. I learned that the hard way.

Chapter 6 A: Numb

As the sound of his vibrating phone echoed into his ears Armaan awoke grudgingly from his deep slumber. He had finally fallen asleep after being awake for most of the night as his mind had been preoccupied with thoughts of Riddhima and Eva. He opened his eyes partly to see his alarm clock blink back 4 am. Who was calling him at this hour? Why couldn't they let him sleep? Oh well better find out who it is he thought as he grabbed his phone from the side table. Now usually Armaan would check the caller Id before answering his phone but today he was in no mood.


"Hello!"



"He he!"



"Who is this?"


Part 16 & 17 : The Green Blue Hues (AR ff)

part 16 

Riddhima walks out of the bathroom, clad in the beautiful dark green blouse embroidered with golden thread and beads. The blouse had been a havoc to tie up at the back. She walks towards the mirror and sees Armaan looking at her, putting down the phone at once.

Riddhima: (narrows her eyes) who were you talking to…

Armaan: no one in particular….woww…(stands up) look at you…you look beautiful…

Riddhima turns and glares at him

Riddhima: mazak urra rahay ho…??

Armaan stifles a laugh and shakes his head to say no

Armaan: no…seriously…tum bohat…achi lag rahi ho…bass…thori vulgar lag rahi ho…(laughs)

Riddhima glares at him

ARSH OS : DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW

   
She shivered in her sleep and brought the quilt closer to her chest. A little resistance, from Armaan's arm but she turned herself in a way so she could be covered with the warmth of his body. Her eyes opened slowly and saw his hazy face before closing again for a moment. A smile adorned her face involuntarily and she turned yet again, now so that he was spooning her from behind. The curtains were aside and she could clearly see out the window. She was finally here. Cold and bright. Her uninterrupted view took her to the mountains. Fairytale white with bright yellow rays falling over them. She felt Armaan's grip tightening as she felt ever so close to those far off snow covered towers of eternal beauty. Excited like her seven year old self, she sat up straight and decided to go out in the balcony to give this morning a perfect Start. She was well covered, with warm pyjamas and a full sleeves sweatshirt. There were her socks lying on the couch. Armaan would kill her if she stepped on the ice cold floor without her socks or slippers, she anyway had got cold and had been coughing and sneezing all day yesterday. But what is the point of enjoying winters if you can't feel it under your

Chapter 5 : Numb

Finally catching a spare minute Muskaan plopped herself on her couch. She had never expected nor thought that one day she would be told that she would have to spend an entire day watching a 3 year old. She had never realized it would be so challenging to watch another human being. She was used to watching and taking care of adults. They at least had the capability of communicating what they wanted or needed. But this child? Well she was a totally different story. She didn't have the ability to say what she wanted because all she did was cry. Muskaan had never heard a louder cry then she had today. Her ears were still ringing with the sound. She just thanked god that Eva had finally gone to sleep. Thinking of Eva. Muskaan couldn't believe Riddhima had a daughter. She had been so shocked when Rahul had called her informing that he and Armaan were coming over to drop a little girl. Little had she known that the little girl would be the end of her.

Part 15: The Green Blue Hues (AR ff)

Sentiments and Saris



Three days later.

 Riddhima is sitting in the middle of the bed, clothes spread all around her on the bed, all kinds: traditional, shalwar suits, sarees, western wear. She kept looking at them and making weird faces, as she could not decide what to wear exactly. She had to get ready for some ceremony of Shubhankar and Keerti's shadi, and there was going to be a pooja in evening. She had quietly escaped the last pooja by feigning a headache, but she just couldn't get out of this one. The last few days had gone pretty well, except that she had been a little depressed regarding Rhea and Ryan.



As she was again lost in thought about them, Armaan entered the room, talking to someone on the phone. As soon as he saw her, he knew something was wrong.
