PART 25 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

Armaan groaned sleepily as he heard the noise of the door bell ringing. He hoped either Raji or Riddhima would answer the door but it didn't happen as the ring persisted for more than two minutes. He nudged Riddhima who was fast asleep beside him as he was least interested to get up.

"Basket. Door." he whispered shaking her slowly.

She turned to the other side and pulled the bed sheet over her face. She was tired after the stressful shopping for the wedding as the wedding is in three days and was in no mood to go and answer the door call. May be Raji was too asleep to hear it, she thought.

"Please Armaan. Go and check it. Aunty must be tired." She pleaded as he nudged her again.

PART 24 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

"I hate being a doctor!" Armaan declared after getting into bed after a long warm shower.

He sighed as his bed greeted him. He was called to Sanjeevani at 2 in the morning as the case file of one of his patients went missing. After an hour of discussion about the patient with the intern on duty, he returned back. He turned to the other side and found Riddhima giggling. He was surprised to find her awake. But then he felt happy, needed. She told him many times that she couldn't sleep peacefully without him, but he didn't expect her to be awake, waiting for him.

"What? I really hate it. Why the hell don't we have any timing as in 9am to 5pm?" He whined snuggling closer to her. This was the only place where he yearned to stay – in her arms, forever.

"But I love you Dr.Mallik." she said softly as she ran her fingers in his hair. Sometimes, his words amuse her. He was just a kid, a big kid. She chuckled at her thought softly.

"Main andar aa skti hoon?" armaan, clad in a blue Punjabi suit and long wig, asked anjali and riddhima before entering the room..

"arre gurmeet ji…aa jayie.." riddhima answered smilingly…

"aa ya jayie? make up your mind first!" he said in his nakli feale voice…riddhima watched him as he enter the room…and talked rubbish with anjali and her…he told them proudly a few things about their past…telling anjali about her dream of becoming the head of sanjeevani…about her and atul…and seeing her all impressed, he gave  all the credit to shobha taai , i.e atul! All excited to know ore about her present, past and future, anjali decided to go to shobha taai and have more chat…and also to sleep with her for the night! Exactly what he had planned to do…he carefully locked  the door as anjali left and turned to see a smiling riddhima…god! He had missed those expressions so much! But now, as he looked at her, he realized, him and her…riddhima and armaan…were together in one room for the whole night! Ok, he had wished that…but exactly that….hum tu ek kamre me band type scene…that would have been good if he was armaan, but now as 'gurmeet'…noo!!

PART 23 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

"Armaan, stop studying now." Riddhima glared at him for the umpteenth time in the evening. It was just a night before the exams and according to her, a person is not supposed to study. But he being his adamant self, was hell bent on studying the previous night.

"Basket, kyaa yaar? When I didn't want to study, you made me sit and study. Now when I want to study, you are making me do the opposite." He whined as she snatched the book away. He folded his legs on the bed and pouted, making his best puppy face ever.

"Stop it Armaan. That's not going to work. Shut up and go to sleep." She scolded him, standing before the dressing table, drying her hair. She couldn't help but smile at his face.

"Armaan ye kahan le aaye ho mujhe? Aur please meri aakhon pe se ye patti hatao...I am starting to get scared now.."

"shhh..." he put a finger on her lips and put something in her hand. She touched and felt it was a paper... "kya hai ye?" she asked now getting restless with all the blindfold thing...he was behaving so weird from the morning itself!

"kaha na chup raho..." he made her quite and softly opened her blindfold.. she flickered eyes quite a times and starting reading the paper...


OK, when the idea of this date struck me, I had thought I would make it the best date ever. And trust me, I tried my best too. But when it came to the best part of the date, that is, this letter, I was blank. Totally, totally blank. All my life I had been thinking I am such a romantic person and all, par aaj pata chala it was all wrong! And you know writing this letter has been the most difficult thing of my life! I know I shouldn't be writing all this but if not this, then what? I still don't know how to say what I want to say. But I'll try. Okay, see, I know you love me and you know I love you. we both know we both love each other. And now I think we should take it to the next step. Shit, that came out so unromantically! Cancel the previous sentence. Cut it all. Okay, so the thing is, that I love you. I love you very very much ms. Shilpa-to-be-mallik. I have been loving you since I first saw you and I intend to love you till my last breath. I love each and every thing about you and I intend to love it all, till I

PART 22 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik


Armaan stared at Riddhima sleeping peacefully beside him. He raised himself on his elbow and gently pulled her closer to himself by her waist. She didn't budge with the slight movement. She probably had been exhausted, he thought as he put her tendrils behind her ear. He noticed a book beside her on the table and sighed. She was taking the test too seriously.

For the past two weeks, he had been noticing her trying to speak to him about something but backing out at the last moment. He couldn't put his finger on what was bothering her so much. Initially he thought may be their physical moment a week back at the library had disturbed her. But then that option was ruled out as the next night she came and slept beside him saying she didn't want to sleep alone.

Last Part : The Stranger (AR mini)

Believe in Happy Endings..And Beginnings

Armaan's POV:
I stared at Rahul as if I hadn't heard him right.
"What?",I whispered,that was barely audible. Rahul simply nodded.
"Yes.I'm sorry,Armaan." He looked away and was about to go,but then sympathetically patted my shoulder.

I stood there,Stunned. Rahul's words echoed in my mind,like a recording played over and over again...'Riddhima is getting married'   'Riddhima is getting married'...My heart felt heavy and I thought of all the moments we spent together...Her face..Her smile,Her touch,her blushes...Her voice..everything seemed to be going far away from me. I've lost her. Guilt and Pain filled my senses,I stayed numb.

"Rahul,I LOVE RIDDHIMA!",I shouted,seeing that Rahul hadn't gone far away. Atleast I could tell my ex-best friend that. I still consider him as a brother,no matter what. If I've lost Riddhima..I can't lose Rahul too. Rahul heard me,and stopped dead in his tracks. He was stunned and shocked..I knew that. He turned and came back to me.

PART 21 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

"Armaan!" Riddhima glared at him as he started playing with her dupatta once again. She was already tired after assisting her senior in two back-to-back surgeries and now instead of resting at her home she was again in the conference room with all her fellow interns, especially with Armaan irritating her to the maximum, waiting for the dean of the hospital.

Armaan noticed the irritated look on her face and chuckled. She looks extremely sexy when she glares with her eyes wide open and nostrils flared up, he thought dreamily.

"Good evening doctors!" Every one sat straight when they heard the dean addressing them. "I have an important announcement for you." The dean continued "You have all completed your first semester here. So you will have to give a qualifying test next month. Depending on your percentile in the test, you will be given priority to choose your area of specialization." There was a pin drop silence as the announcement was made. "So all the very best for your exam." The dean concluded and left the hall leaving the interns tensed.

Part 4 : The Stranger (AR mini)

 Believe in Happy Endings and..Beginnings

Riddhima's POV:

It hurts So much. Even after 2 damn whole months,It hurts so much. Why does he even exist? I have to college,I have to see him.Why? I can only ask myself thousand of times a  day,Why? Why did I fall in Love with him? Even if I did,Why can't I forget him? Its my life,My heart..I can throw out anybody out of it,Right? No,Not him! I try so much,remind myself  practically every second,that he was nothing to me,even if he was..He is nothing now,and won't be ever. But all the more,my world seems to come to have come to a Full-stop. I hate  myself,now. Why did I ever let him kiss me? Maybe I'd life with the fact that he didn't love me..But after the kiss,It only feels like I was just another fling to him,a timepass. How could I  have let HIM,take my heart away..The boy who had practically won everyone's heart at college? Am I So Weak?

PART 20 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

Riddhima smiled looking at Armaan fighting with Raji, at an ice cream counter. They came to a nearby beach to spend their Sunday evening. Last week had been wonderful for her. With her relationship with Armaan getting stronger and the void in her heart slowly filling up by his and Raji's love, she felt blessed to have them in her life, all of a sudden. The love she always yearned for, all through her life, is now around her all the time- be it Raji or Armaan.

As she thought about Armaan and Raji she remembered the previous day's events as they tried to reveal their love to Raji with their futile attempts. She blushed at her memory.

Riddhima was startled when Armaan wrapped his arms around her waist from behind kissing her cheek. As she turned around, he pecked her trembling lips and grinned widely at her pale face. She glared at him, although a blush crept her cheeks.

Part 3: The Stranger (AR mini)

Love Found..And Lost

Riddhima's POV:
Even his thought is enough for my face to creep into a tinge of red.I am seriously getting mad.Its been a week since I've met Armaan,and it amazes me to see the effect he has on me.

"Riddhima..",his velvety voice was dazed and we were very close.So close,that we could count each other's breathing.I could feel my heart pounding against my chest and it clearly demonstrated how nervous I felt.
His big manly hand slowly rose till it touched my face,and his bare touch sent shivers down my spine as his other  free hand grabbed one of mine. My eyes shut close andhe slowly stroked my cheek,very gently.His breath was making me lose my senses and his scent was driving me crazzy.Why wasn't he saying it already?

Now his hand slowly removed some locks of my hair from my face and tucked it behind my ear.The intimacy was driving me mad,and I could hardly think straight anymore.
"Armaan..",I whispered softly,gazing into his eyes. His gray-blue eyes owned me completely once again.I was lost in them,and my heart pounded harder..till I could hear his voice again.

PART 19 : Mr. & Mrs. Mallik

Armaan cut her words before she could complete them. "Because I missed you." He said with his voice deep with emotions. But Riddhima didn't recognize the intensity with which he was saying as she still was deep in thought about the questions in her own brain. She struggled to get herself free from his hold as his grip on her tightened.

She was looking away twisting in his hold. "Leave me Armaan, now. Or I will surely kill you." He heard her say. Armaan tried once again to gain her attention. "and because I Love you." He replied to her previous question ignoring her words.

"But-" she started but the words were never completed. She froze in his arms as her mind registered his words in it. For few moments she couldn't understand whether he actually said the words or not. She just stared at him, with her lips slightly parted in surprise, standing completely still.
