Part 428: Muhabbat Ki Nayi Raahon Me


Armaan: (haltingly) Ridhimaa… maine kab kaha ki tum buri ho?



Ridhimaa: (smiling) I know… nahi kaha…

She again started looking towards the couples enjoying their dance. The music was always rolling without unnecessary breaks.

Armaan: (following Ridhimaa's line of vision) Hum bhi chalein?


Ridhimaa looked back into Armaan's beautiful eyes and nodded. They simply glided towards the dance floor. Armaan held Ridhimaa's hands and put them around his neck. His own arms encircled Ridhimaa's waist. Ridhimaa's cheeks flooded with colour.

Armaan: Waise mujhe ek tareeka aata hai… tumhe khush karne ka…

PART 11 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik



Expecting the worst, Armaan and Riddhima closed their eyes and opened them immediately when they were pulled in for a hug. Riddhima froze at her spot, noticing her dad hugging them and Armaan on the other hand stood baffled. "Oh, I am so happy for you. Why didn't you tell me before?" Shashank exclaimed at Riddhima after stepping back. Riddhima stared at her father in disbelief with eyes wide.

"Dad?? Tell, what?" Riddhima stuttered. She felt she would faint at any moment. "What else? That you liked Armaan Mallik." Shashank declared stressing on the word Mallik. Riddhima looked at Armaan, who was equally perplexed and then at her dad and thought 'Didn't that clown already tell you that?' glancing at Armaan once again. "Oh" she said aloud not quite understanding what is wrong with her dad.

Shashank smiled at them and turned back to Vijay Mallik and hugged him. "I am so happy Vijay. Finally we would be relatives." He said while Vijay seemed to be equally pleased. "Me too Shashank. How come we never thought about this match?" Vijay exclaimed and then hugged his wife Ananya.

Part 427: Muhabbat Ki Nayi Raahon Me


 TITLE SONG:

Dill ki tadapti saanson me

Preet ki mehekti baahon me

Dabe-chhipe se alfaazon me

Behke pal ke jazbaaton me

Band palkon ke khwaabon me

Khatti-meethi si baaton me

Jhuki hui si nigaahon me

Nayi-purani kuch yaadon me

PART 10 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

All the three boys waited in the car for Muskaan patiently. As per the plan, Muskaan has to get dressed well as she has to go into Riddhima's house. "Why does it take time for the girls to get dressed?" Armaan whined impatiently. After a moment, they heard Muskaan's voice and turned to look at her. Their jaws dropped to the floor as they saw Muskaan in a purple saree with silver embroidery looking gorgeous. As she walked to towards the car, they gawked at her with their mouths still open.

Sanjay came out of his trance first. "You are already committed, remember. You have no right to stare at her." He smacked Armaan and Rahul chucked while Armaan glared at them. Soon Muskaan got into the car and they left for Riddhima's house.

TITLE SONG:

 Dill ki tadapti saanson me

Preet ki mehekti baahon me

Dabe-chhipe se alfaazon me

Jhuki hui si nigaahon me

Nayi-purani kuch yaadon me
Kabhi bichhde dill mill jayenge

PART 9 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

Suddenly she remembered something when he disappeared and ran in his direction "Armaan" She was disappointed when she didn't get any response and was about to turn back when she heard his voice "Basket? you called me?" he peeped back at her, sitting on his bike. "Thanks Armaan" she said and smiled while he winked at her "Good night Basket."

*******************************

Armaan paced restlessly in the cafeteria, after the end of their duties, with Muskaan and Rahul beside him with panic stricken faces. It had been two days that Riddhima hadn't been to the hospital and neither had she taken their calls. Suddenly a thought crept into his mind 'Was she hurt because of me?' He felt sorry for her. But then his heart shouted "No. She had forgiven me right? She was smiling that day.'

 TITLE SONG:

 Dill ki tadapti saanson me

Preet ki mehekti baahon me

Dabe-chhipe se alfaazon me

Behke pal ke jazbaaton me

Band palkon ke khwaabon me

Khatti-meethi si baaton me

PART 8 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

"Basket" his words barely escaped his throat. "Thank you so much Armaan. Thank you. I am so happy. I owe you a lot." Riddhima said with her voice full of joy. Unknown to himself, he felt happy finding her happy, and his arms encircled her. He felt a shiver of pleasure run down his entire body as his palms came in contact with her tiny waist. Oblivious to the surroundings and the warnings from his brain, he pulled her closer and nuzzled into her thick hair, breathing in her rich feminine fragrance. Riddhima was too drowned in her happiness to realize what they were doing.

"Ahem Ahem" Armaan came back to his senses when he heard Raji's voice and so did Riddhima. In a flash he loosened his grip off her and jumped back. Riddhima turned red with embarrassment while Armaan tried to find some excuse to Raji. "So Armaan, how did Sanjay agree to it?" Riddhima fumbled with her words and was surprised with her initiative to speak.

Part 424: Muhabbat Ki Nayi Raahon Me


Tamanna knocked at the door a little too strongly, and to her utter surprise, the door flew open. She didn't dare step in.

Tamanna: (calling softly) Ridz... Ammy...

No one answered. Tamanna called out once again. Still there was no answer. Irritated, she barged inside the room and switched on the lights.

Armaan and Ridhimaa, both seemed fast asleep in each others' arms. Tamanna sent up a silent prayer to the heavens seeing the two and approached Ridhimaa.

Tamanna: Ridz... Ridz...

She shook Ridhimaa slightly.

PART 7 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

"I am waiting....um.... Armaan right?" Sanjay's voice echoed in his ears which convinced Armaan that he was still alive. He warned his mind to cook up something but it seemed to be dead. "I am patient but my revolver is a very impatient one" Sanjay spoke again which made Armaan go numb with fear. After a moment Rahul almost had a mild heart-attack listening to the words uttered by Armaan.

"Because Riddhima is in love with me." Armaan said holding his breath, with his eyes tightly shut, waiting for the revolver to do something. But nothing happened for few moments and a relieved Armaan slowly opened his one eye to have a glance at Sanjay. Assured that he won't be killed, he opened his other eye and looked at Rahul, who was at the edge to go into coma. Then he turned towards Sanjay and found him stare at him in disbelief, still holding the revolver.

PART 6 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik



Riddhima was still confused about her dad's unexpected calm behavior since yesterday's night. She came and sat at the dining table for breakfast. She looked at Shashank's face. It was still peaceful. She felt restless. Her heart warned her about something. "Riddhima" on hearing her dad's voice, she slightly jumped off the chair at the dining table.

"Yes dad" she turned her face towards him hesitatingly. Her father passed on an envelope towards her. She opened it and saw the photo of a handsome guy smiling profusely. Though she hated to admit it, she knew what it was all about. She sighed and took a deep breath as if getting ready for something. Her heart beat erratically. Fidgeting with her fingers, she looked at Shashank, expecting some answers.

AR os : The Missed Call



"Damn it."

Armaan cursed himself in his breath, as perspiration ran down his handsome face. Was breaking up always so hard?

'No', he answered to himself, 'But this one is...Because unlike your other girlfriends, she is in love with you, and you're So, NOT.'

Running a hand through his hair to calm himself down, he walked with unsteady breaths towards her. There she was, staring dreamily at the rain outside the window, her fingers tapping the glass table ' indicating, she was waiting for him.

Jazz played in the background and he muttered curses, it was making him more edgy by the second. He hated Jazz, it was so sickenly romantic sometimes...Not the peaceful, soft tunes of Bollywood but only...Ah, well.

PART 5 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

He gave her an injection and sat on a stool beside her bed.

After some time, he sprinkled some water on her face. He sighed with relief when there was a moment in her eye balls.

"Basket….. Are you fine?" he asked her anxiously as she slowly opened her eyes.

*****************************

Shashank paced to and fro in the living room checking the watch for every minute. "Riddhima should have been back by 7.30. It is almost 8. Why is she late?' he thought. He dialed her number but didn't get any answer and became more restless. Riddhima's encounter with Armaan at the shop flashed in his mind and he quickly grabbed the car keys and left for Sanjeevani.
