Part 2 : BasTera Naam Hai OS


Soon, they reached home and Riddhima went inside while Armaan sit for sometime in car thinking about what to do, so that she can be happy around herself.

He directly went at Rahul’s place, he wanted to know about her.

“Kya baat hai buddy achanak se” Rahul was confused on his expression.

“Rahul,Muskaan, kya Riddhima k sath kuch hua hai? Koi problem hai jiski wajah se wo kisi se rishta nhi banana cahhti” Armaan asked.

He was so dying in desperation to know and his feelings were beyond control now.

“Nhi, buddy aisa to kcuh nhi hai” Rahul said.

“Are you sure?” he look at them.


“Ha, kyu muskaan,,,” Rahul look at her who was looking away in nervousness.

“Muskaan, kya koi baat hai? Please agar kuch hai to mujhe batao, mai use aise nhi dekh pa raha hu, har minute har second mera dil hazar baar tadapta hai use aise dekh k, wo meri taraf kadam badhana chahti hai lekin nhi kar pati, rok leti hai khud ko mujhe nhi samajh me aa raha hai kyu, please mujhe kuch batao ki mai use is condition se nikal saku, shayad tab hi mai apne pyar ka iqraar kar paunga. Tumhe pata hai Shashank Uncle ka jab call aaya tha us waqt ghar me sabko Riddhima pasand thi, maine jab uski photo dekhi to mujhe v fir jab unhone bataya ki wo bahut shant ho gai hai aur khud ko kaam me bandh k rakh liya hai to maine unse promise kiya tha ki mai Riddhima ko zindagi ki taraf wapas leke aaunga. Lekin kaise karu mai, wo ek kadam badhane se v darr rahi hai, kyu?” Armaan was breaking down, he can’t control himself longer.

He badly needed a support to encourage so that he can make Riddhima truly happy again.

“Hero, dekh mujhe jyada kuch nhi pata hai lekin medical studies k time pe shayad ek ladke ne us se dosti karne ki koshish ki thi but Ridzi ne jyada kuch bataya nhi fir kuch time baad uska naam v nhi liya usne to mujhe laga randomly koi hoga isliye jyada insist nhi kiya” Muskaan replied.

“Kuch hua tha us time, uske pahle Riddhima kaisi thi?” he asked.

“Uske pahle to wo bahut khush rahti thi, ha abhi v rahti hai lekin aankhon me khushi nhi dikhai deti, puchne pe majak me uda deti hai isliye ham uske samne majak kar k hi use khush rakhne ki koshish karte hain” Muskaan replied.

“thanku Muskaan, agar mai sahi soch raha hu to Riddhima Anjali di ki shadi tak khud hi maan jayegi” Armaan smiled and hugged them.

Armaan came back home and saw Riddhima was waiting for him.

“Tum kaha chale gaye the? Sab log sone cahle gaye” she said opening the switch of kitchen.

“To tum kyu nhi gai?” he asked standing on kitchen door looking at her with his charming smile.

“Wo tumne dinner nhi kiya tha so,,,,” she warm up the food for him.

“To koi baat nhi waise v mujhe bhook nhi hai, tum jake so jao, mere liye itna pareshan hone ki jarurat nhi hai” he tried to irritate her a bit and went to his room.

“What the,,,,, kya problem hai iski, ek to itni der tak bahar tha, bina kuch bataye gayab ho gaya aura b bhook nhi hai, samajh me hi nhi aata kuch” she murmured and serve food for him in a plate.

Taking that plate she came into his room and knocked the door. Getting no response she enter inside only to saw him sitting on bed after taking a shower and stuffing his headphone he closed his eyes as if enjoying the song.

“Armaan” she called him, Armaan so wanted to open his eyes and see her there but he controlled.

“Armaan” she shook him a little.

“Kya hua?” he asked.

“Dinner” she showed him the food tray.

“Riddhima mujhe bhook nhi hai” he replied.

“Listen, don’t try to act ok, tumne din me v kuch nhi khaya hai so abhi chup chap kha lo” she said keeping the tray on side table.

“Tumhe kaise pata ki maine din me nhi khaya hai?” he asked when she was near the door.

“W,,,,wwo Anjali di ne dekha nhi tumhe lunch pe sabke sath to” she stopped.

“Tumhe kyu itni fikar ho rahi hai Riddhima” he came near her and she clutched her dupatta tightly.

“Tumhe kyu meri fikar ho rahi thi jab mujhe chakkar aaya tha to, tumhari aankho me aansu kyu the jab meri aankhein nhi khul rahi to” Riddhima asked abruptly and he smiled a bit.

“Mere paas tumhare har sawaal ka jawab hai Riddhima, par kyu tum sun paogi” Armaan looked into her eyes deeply.

“Khana kha lena Armaan” she said and left the room.

Armaan noticed her wiping the tears off and he just wanted to hug her and take away all the pain.

He came back and saw the food, first time Riddhima get that food for him and he smiled. She arranged everything properly and Armaan took a morsel smiling to himself.

“Bhaut jaldi tumhari aankhon me chehre pe sirf smile hogi Riddhima” he said and finished his food.

Few days went like that Armaan trying to come close to Riddhima and she always ran away. Anjali’s wedding function started and everyone so busy as they had to handle girl side and boys side both as they were so close to each other.

“Arey Riddhima beta, jaldi se ye haldi ka paste bana de Anjali ki haldi shuru karni hai” Padma came in kitchen and said looking at Riddhima.

“Don’t worry maa, mai kar rahi hu” she smiled.

Armaan came into kitchen to have some water and saw her mixing water in haldi bowl, he smile looking at her and she was unaware of his presence.

She was preparing haldi paste when water jug stumbles and she tried to hold both so that they didn’t fell down, meanwhile two hands came from behind which hold the bowl and she hold the jug.

“Thank God!” she murmured looking at the bowl which was safe just some of them spill out and fell on their hand.

She noticed another male hand with her and turn to see when her breath stop as he was standing close to her behind her back holding the haldi bowl over her hand, both covered with haldi paste.

Armaan was really lost at that point, he was not able to look away from her, her hairs flying over her face, her eyes looking at him, his hands covering her hands all these seem so perfect at the moment when Riddhima shifted a bit.

“Umm,,, Armaan” she murmured.

“Hmm” he was lost.

“Haldi” she said.

“Lag gai” he replied being lost.

“what? Armaan haldi tumahre hath me lag rahi hai” Riddhima said and he came out of his dreamland.

“Oh! Sorry” he shift away and Riddhima feel the cold air as the space created between them.

“Armaan beta, tumahri family aa gai” Padma said and left hurriedly.

“Shagun to ho gaya” he murmured looking at her and she was confused.

Riddhima came out with haldi bowl and meet Armaan’s parents, although she knew them but she was so small at that time.

“Bahut pyari hai Riddhima” Ananya kissed her forehead.

“Mai v” Armaan jumped in between.

Riddhima rolled her eyes and he smiled. Ananya hugged him smiling.

“Sundar hai na?” Armaan whisper.

“Bahut,,,, photo se jyada real me, waise I can sense haldi mana li hai tum dono ne” Ananya chuckeld.

“Koshish ki thi lekin ye mane tab to” Armaan whisper and out of hug winking at her.

“Shaitan, chal jyada pareshan mat karna usko” she smiled and he nodded.

Ananya went to Padma and Shashank Billy sit together.

“Bachho, ye haldi to Atul k yaha le jani hai aur waha se haldi le aani hai, wahi lagegi Anjali ko” Padma said.

“Ok” Armaan nodded.

“Armaan Riddhima tum dono chale jao aur leke aao” Billy said and she nodded as she can’t refuse him and Armaan showed thumb’s up to him without making it obvious to anyone.

“Chalein Riddhima” Armaan asked looking at her while she nodded being surrounded by so many peoples.

They reached at Atul’s house and Armaan smile looking at him.

“Jiju, lijiye ye haldi apke liye aur abhi hame yaha se haldi leke jaldi se jana hai”Riddhima reached and start atonce.

“Ohoo, saali sahiba, araam se” Atul giggled.

“Aaraam ka time nhi hai” she uttered and he smiled.

“Beta ye lo ye haldi Anjali ko lagani hai”Atul’s Mom came towards them.

“Thanku Aunty” Riddhima smiled and she nodded patting her head.

“Arey Riddhima, Armaan beta, kya baat hai tum log aaye ho haldi lene, lekin haldi le jane k pahle apne dost ko haldi nhi lagaoge kya?” Atul’s Dad said and she smiled.

Riddhima put haldi slowly over Atul’s face and hand.

“Now, it’s my turn champ” Armaan came forward rubbing his hands.

Before anyone could understand Armaan smeared handful oh haldi over Atul’s face and he look at him being shocked.

“Ammy,,,,, what the” Atul was looking at him being shocked and surprised.

“What? I thought aise hi haldi lagate hain,,,, Oh! Kahi wo holi to nhi thi,,,, sorry champ mai haldi aur holi me confuse ho gaya” Armaan gave his cute puppy face and Riddhima look at him being surprised.

“Armaan k bachhe tujhe to mai,,,,,,,” he ran behind him and Armaan laugh running around.

After sometime they left Atul’s place when he went to take shower.

Armaan was driving silently and a smile was playing on Riddhima’s face.

“Kaun sa joke yaad aa gaya tumko” Armaan looked at her.

“Not Joke, but the way you put haldi on Atul Jiju,,,, that was really something different” she smiled looking at the haldi bowl she was holding over her lap the at Armaan.

“Bolo to tumhe v laga du?” Armaan look at her and she looks away.

Slowly smile fade away from her face and he sighs.

Haldi function perform smoothly and soon they were preparing for mehandi… Riddhima was bust with arrangement and Armaan was also helping them.

“Armaan beta, kuch help chahiye?” Ananya asked him.

“No Mom, I’m fine, I’ll do that” Armaan said putting flowers beside the stage and asking others to do properly.

Riddhima bring Anjali down and they settle down for mehandi,,, Muskaan was making her giggle in her own way trying to distract Riddhima’s mind from hospital.

They were just applying mehandi on Anjali’s hand when Armaan and Rahul came towards them.

“Anjali, tumhare liye ek surprise hai” Rahul said looking at Armaan and they smiled.

“Kya?” she asked instantly.

“Newsflash,,,,,,, it’s a surprise so can’t tell you right now” Armaan said and she rolled her eyes.

“Di, apki mehandi ho gai” Riddhima smiled declaring.

“Beautiful” Armaan murmured.

Riddhima smile thinking he was looking at mehandi rather she knew that his gaze was fixed on her. Rahul and Muskaan faked cough to gain his attention and he glared them to shut up.

“Yaar, mehandi ka function hai kyu na Anjali ko dance karaye” Nikki exclaimed and before she could protest they drag her to the center.

Soon everybody starts dancing happily while Riddhima was standing at side happily clapping for them.

Armaan look at her and holding her hand dragged inside the circle. Muskaan hold her hand and tried to make her dance, she hide her discomfort and smile a bit to her friends. Soon, she dragged herself away again.

“Chal Ridzi, ham v mehandi lagwate hain”Nikki said and they settle down.

Smiling and Chatting, they were applying mehandi on their hand.

Designer was writing name, Nikki and Muskaan told and before Riddhima could say anything, she saw Muskaan’s phone was blinking.

“Ksika hai?” Muskaan asked.

“Armaan” Riddhima replied and designer write Armaan’s name over her palm.

Armaan was passing by and he noticed that shaking his head he smiled. He knew Riddhima was not aware of it thus he thought to tease her later.

After mehandi, everyone was so tired that they need to rest for sometime.

Riddhima settle down on sofa near Anjali and slept in uncomfortable position being surrounded by Muskaan and Nikki.

Armaan came and look at them, he slowly put blanket over them so that their sleep didn’t break.

Next day was sangeet and Anjali was very happy as Atul will also join the function.

Riddhima was enjoying the happiness on her face, she really wanted to forget her past and move on but shiver whenever she recall her encounter with that person.
She was standing near kitchen when Armaan came, he was looking so dashing in white kurta, Riddhima didn’t noticed him and was looking at her family.

“Jab family se itna pyar ho to dur se nhi, sath me enjoy karna chahiye” he said and turn around in kitchen.

“Aisa kuch nhi hai,,,, m,,,mai bas kitchen me kaam se aai thi” she start fiddling around the boxes.

“Basket, kis se jhoot bol rahi ho” Armaan said and intensity of his deep voice make her shiver.

She just left the place without saying anything.

Sangeet function started and Atul and Anjali perform a dance together and she was all lost in him smiling, planning their future together.

Armaan look at Riddhima who was maintaining a distance with him which irked him to unbearable extent.

Nikki and Muskaan perform a dance together along with Rahul and Abhimanyu.

Riddhima Nikki and Muskaan had to dance together but she was feeling so nervous to go, but for Anjali and her family’s happiness she stepped on the stage and dance with them.

Armaan was so happy feeling moment to cherish for whole life, her smile, her expressions while dancing everything was perfect and he was head over heel in love with her.

Last dance was of Muskaan and Riddhima, in which they will be predicting Anjali and Atul’s love story.

Before start dancing Muskaan winked at Armaan and he couldn’t understand what she meant until she faked a falling down scene.

“Ohoo, babaji, lagta hai moch aa gai, Riddhima ab tu kiske sath dance karegi” Muskaan said looking at her.

“Nikki v bahar chali gai abhi, uske ghar se call aa gaya tha” Riddhima murmured.

“Anjali ka kitna mann tha kitni excited thi wo is dance k liye” Rahul said.

“Ab mai kya karu?” she looked at them.

“Tu Armaan k sath kar le” Muskaan suggested in a way which won’t look obvious to her.

“lekin,,,,” Riddhima tried to say something.

“Lekin wekin chhod, last performance hai aur Anjali ko kitna achha lagega soch” Muskaan blackmailed her and Armaan turned around looking at the guest.

He look at Riddhima who was looking at him, he just blinked his eyes and she smile being a bit uncomfortable.

Armaan Riddhima start the dance, everyone was so happy and clapped as they began, slowly slowly dance was become a bit passionate, they forget about the show and just dance with each other, feeling each other’s heart beat clearly. Armaan didn’t move his eyes from her for a mere second, his eyes showing a lot more about his feeling which Riddhima was trying to ignore hard.

Armaan turn her around and while dancing he bring her hand towards her face and her eyes went on her meahandi, looking at Armaan’s name there, she shifted in his hold while dancing and tried to hide it.

Soon they finished the song and there was all dark on the stage while curtain pulled up, no one came for them and they were standing in the same position so close to him. They were trying hard to control their breath, that intimacy was bringing ARMAAN more close to her, and why not he loved her and she was the only reason why he came there, he wanted her to feel what her heart want not in some random stress.

Armaan breath was making her shiver and she almost shudder in his arms, softly touching her cheeks he moved his hand towards her lips, slightly rubbing her lower lips with thumb he look into her eyes.

He leaned a bit lower and their lips were inches apart when Riddhima stepped back “Ye nhi ho sakta”

“Kyu Basket?” his voice was so soft and she look back at him.

“Y,,,,ye sahi nhi hai Armaan” she murmured.

“Shushh,,,, sab sahi hai, mai sahi hu Basket, tum sahi ho” Armaan palmed her cheek.

“Nhi Armaan, dur raho mujhse” Riddhima pushed him and now he had enough of it.

He was hell angry now, holding her hand he dragged her with himself.

“Armaan chhodo mujhe, just leave my hand” Riddhima tried to release her hand from his grip but he was stronger than she thought.

“Hame time lagega aane mein” Armaan said to someone on call in his cold voice and pushed Riddhima in car.

He start the car and zoomed out before she could understand.

“Armaan mujhe ghar jana hai” Riddhima shouted.

“Tum kahi nhi ja rahi ho” Armaan said looking forward at the road.

Riddhima just closed her eyes controlling hard her tears, one thing she knew very well that Armaan won’t harm her, it will be that last thing he would like to do.

He stopped the car near sea shore and holding her hand he came out of car, again she was kind of pulled along with him but she didn’t protest, she just don’t want to think anything.

He just left her hand and move a bit forward, stopped at a distance to control his anger, looking upwards at the sky he breath so hard to calm down his anger but it was not working anymore.

“Do you have any idea, what rubbish you are spreading in your life Riddhima” Armaan looked at her she deviate her gaze.

It was so hard to hide anything from him, why do he cast so much effect on her, why every time she lied to him it hurts her.

“You know what Riddhima, you are doing this to yourself, doesn’t matter how hard I tried to bring up in your family, to make you feel happy and connected you always get some ways to escape, ,,,,,, like really you are isolating yourself from your family your own friends, who always thinks about you, do you ever thought about it. Are you deserving enough to get all those attentions or you are just enjoying being the center point of everybody’s thought. You might be feeling happy na, ha chalo sab mere bare me itna sochte hain, itna pareshan hote hain to unhe aur parehan karte hain, let them be like that because they don’t deserve to be happy as they always think about your well being, this is a kind of punishment they should get for being too kind for you. Leave every other thing Riddhima but when I’m trying to bring you out of your shell why you always resist yourself,” Riddhima tried to say something but Armaan was too angry to listen anything “Don’t,,,,,, Don’t you dare to say anything. You know what you always test my patience, I clearly saw the urge to grasp happiness in your eyes but every time,,,, every time you just smash that little hope in your eyes coz of you mind, don’t know what stop you from moving forward but let me tell you Riddhima Gupta, Armaan Mallik is here only for you, everything I tried to do for your happiness you just stop yourself, confining again in your shell but I’m not leaving you, whether you like it or not, whether you trust me or not, I’ll always be there for you and wait for the moment when you willingly want to come out of insecurities, I’LL ALWAYS WAIT FOR YOU RIDDHIMA, FOR MY WHOLE LIFE, I WON’T LET MY FIRST LOVE DEFEAT LIKE THIS BECAUSE OF YOUR SILLY REASON, BECAUSE MERI LIFE ME BAS TUMHARA NAAM HAI. But you know what, it really hurts” pointing towards his heart he said looking into her eyes.

Riddhima was crying from the moment he starts, her eyes were brimming with tears, she just wanted to ran upto him and hug him tight, after knowing that he love her she thought may be she will get a ray of light to come out of every kind of thing which scare her, but what if she won’t be able to do this, does Armaan deserve her, no he deserve much more better person in his life.

Armaan didn’t get any response from her thus he turn around to control his anger as he said so much to her, which killed him inside but to make her release whatever was bothering her, it was really needed.
He was about to leave when Riddhima hold hIS hand, he turn around while she sat down on sand crying hard, Armaan felt guilty and it killed him to see her in that condition.

He instantly sit down and hugged her tight, his tears were wetting her suit while she was feeling safe in his arms crying her heart out.

“Shushh,,,,, Riddhima,,,, I’m sorry, I’m sorry Basket,,,, please mujhe maaf kar do,,,, mai tumhe kuch,,,,,,,,,” Armaan felt so bad that he start asking for forgiveness.

“Uska naam Vivek tha Armaan, medical ki padhai k time pe mai us se mili thi” Riddhima utter for the first time and Armaan look at her, she was sharing her pain with him.

He hold her tightly in his arms and she look at him “Tumhe mujhse pyar nhi karna chahiye tha Armaan, tumhe bahut achhi ladki milegi but mai,,,, mai tumhe deserve nhi karti”

“Sorry mujhe aur koi ladki nhi chahiye aur ha ye tum nhi mai decide karunga basket ki mai tumhe deserve karta hu ya nhi, and you can trust me” he looked into her eyes.

She knew she’ll have to share this with him, atleast he needs to know this, first and last person.

“Classes k time pe use mujhse notes chahiye hoti thi to wo mujhse baatein karta tha, mai pagalo ki tarah use pyar samajh baithi, you know what he never meets me infront of other peoples, just when no one will be in class or library, I thought he don’t want others to know about our relation so I stopped discussing with anyone not even with Muskaan. But I was a fool like dumb and nonsense” Riddhima said laughing while crying and Armaan shifted his position holding her safely, she was so broken from inside and no one knew about it till now.

“Tumhe pata hai mera v dil karta tha ki mai uske baahar jau, ya fir Muskaan Rahul k sath me ghumne jau use leke but maine apne dil ko mana liya ye bol k ki shayad wo abhi nhi chahta ki hamare bare me kisi ko pata chale aur wo sirf mujhse notes ya discussion k liye milta tha bas return gift me ye dikhata tha ki use meri chinta hai, wo mujhse dil se juda hai, but you know what wo mujhse kyu nhi milta tha bahar,,,,, haha,,, because of my attire, my appearance, mai simple ladki thi aur suit me rahti thi, shayad bakiyo ki tarah mai shorts me nhi jati thi college, mai Papa ke paiso ka showoff nhi karti thi isliye mai up to standard nhi thi. Mujhe to ye sab pata v nhi chalta agar maine uski baatein nhi suni hoti, apne dosto k sath baith k wo mera majak uda raha tha, he was just discussing me among his friends, being so boring and not even lie in a place to be his friend, he was just doing all these to get notes from me so that he can pass out easily as teachers always praised me. He said that I don’t have any charm to attract anyone, how could any one will love like a typical gharelu girl like behenji types.”

Armaan tighten his knuckles as it was hard to control his anger now.

“Fir jab wo mujhse mila to maine us pucha ki tum mere sath bahAr kyu nhi jate ho, sach me wo bahut typical moment tha mere liye uske samne pretend karna ki mai nhi janti wo kya kar raha hai. And he was in effect of alcohol which he consumed while talking with his friends, he really explained all those things to me, in front of myself, I slapped him and was about to leave when he taunted me disgustingly saying every boy want a girl appealing for himself, no one will ever throw a glance at me, and even if I tried to wear something fashionable or sexy then too no will approach me as I’m behenji material, he said I can’t keep anyone happy and lot more, you know what I can’t even explain how his words haunt me during my sleep, I was not able to concentrate myself in my studies. After that this love factor was erased out of my life, I never discussed it with anyone and when Muskaan came back from her home I didn’t even told her, when she asked I just normally denied saying nothing was serious. But his words were imprinted deep down my heart, i always think no one will be happy with me, I won’t fit in this life where they enjoyed themselves thus after completing studies I confined me to myself, I start isolating myself from other things, no gathering, no parties, I was scared Armaan, what if I won’t be same as others, what if he will see me somewhere and start taunting again, I can’t bear those haunting thoughts and just left everything. What matters most for me was my family, hospital and my few friends whom I never want to lose.” Riddhima said looking towards him.

Armaan was holding himself back from a long time, as soon as she finished he look towards her and hugged her tightly, he slapped himself mentally to put her in this condition that she blurred everything out in pain, but he decided that she won’t go through any of these insecurities from now on.

“Basket, you really won’t fit here” Armaan whisper.

She came out of hug and look into his eyes being hurt, he picked up her fresh tears on his finger tip and blow away “Because you are so brave and beautiful like princess, no one will be able to hold anything so long as you did, but the effect his words cause over you was definitely wrong. Tumne ek aise ladke ki baton ko itni importance de di aur khud ki family friends sabko bhool gai” Armaan whisper looking into her eyes.

“Mai aisa nhi karna chahti thi Armaan, lekin jab v mai kisi v tarah se apne liye kuch sochti uski baatein mujhe bahut haunt karti thi, mai normal nhi rah pati thi, fir dheere dheere dur ho gai sabse” Riddhima merely whisper but Armaan was too close to hear every thing.

He slowly wiped her tears and kissed her forehead, she closed her eyes mumbling again “Armaan please don’t do this, mai ek baar aur ye sab bardasht nhi kar paungi”

“Tumhe lagta hai ki mai uski tarah hu? Tumhe lagta hai ki mai tumhe chhod k chala jaunga?” he look into her eyes.

“Nhi” she nodded instantly “But main Nhi chahti ki meri insecurities ki wajah se tum har waqt bas mere liye pareshan hote raho”

“Basket, mai dusro ki tarah nhi hu aur ha mai yaha pe sirf tumhare liye aaya hu aur tumhari khushiyo ko tum tak wapas lake rahunga, I promise” Armaan whisper slowly and she smiled.

“Please promise me you won’t tell anyone about it” she said.

“I won’t, it’ll be just me. Shashank Uncle tumhe leke bahut pareshan rahte the, he once send your picture to me and before me Mom selected you for me, infact me too but he was worried about you thus wanted me to come here and meet you, to know you so that I might help you to come back to life, to family” Armaan told her and she surprised again guilty take over her.

“Mai bahut buri hu Armaan, maine sabko hurt kiya, maine Papa ko v kitna pareshan kiya” she sniffed.

“Shushh,,,, abhi rone ka time khatam, and I promise aaj k baad jo v aansu tumhari aankhon me aayenge wo khushi k honge” he smiled cupping her face.

“Aisa kuch nhi hone wala, mai tumhare liye the,,,,,” Armaan stopped her instantly.

“I told you I’ll decide that not you and I have already decided, aur waise v agar mai pasand nhi hu to ye kya hai?” he showed her hand to tease her a little.

“W,,,wo mujhe nhi pata chala mehandi wali ne kab likha” Riddhima was becoming conscious now.

“Mujhe pata hai, anyways let me tell you I won’t handle this sniffing Basket around me so madam please smile for me” Armaan said and she smile on the way he said.

“Am I truly lucky?” she looked at him.

“I am lucky to get you in my life Basket” Armaan said kissing her forehead.

“Ghar chalein?” Riddhima asked.

“Itni jaldi? Abhi to confession baki hai, abhi to pyar ki shuruat hui hai thoda time to do mujhe tumhe dekhne ka, har waqt to bas ladai karne pe utaru rahti thi” Armaan smiled.

“Wo to bas tumse dur bhaagne ka bahana tha” Riddhima replied and smiled as she knew he was the one for her in life forever.

“Achha ji, ab dur nhi bhaagna?” he look at her.

“Nhi” she hold his one hand and kept her head over his shoulder.

Armaan closed his eyes feeling happy and contend, he knew Riddhima didn’t accepted her love for him but she will do as her every act shows how much she love him.

“Riddhima, do you trust me?” he asked her.

“Now it’s again Riddhima, what about Basket?” she narrowed her eyes.

“Ops, I thought Basket tumhe pasand nhi hai” he look at her.

“Bahut pasand hai so don’t call me Riddhima now” she said keeping her head over his shoulder again “And ofcourse I trust you, more than I trust on me”

“Theek hai fir mujhe is ladke k bare me Muskaan se puchhna padega” Armaan said.

“Armaan nhi please, mai past ko wapas nhi lana chahti apni life me, please” she become worried.

“Basket, relax, mai hu na, ,kuch nhi hoga, it’s just that I’m not so much forgiving like you, I can’t sit back knowing whatever rubbish he told you,,,, and don’t worry mai Muskaan ko kuch nhi bataunga, trust me Basket, just let me do this, I promise you kuch galat nhi hoga, use bas ek jawab milna chahiye meri Basket ki life hell banana k liye” Armaan was so determined and Riddhima can’t say no to him now.

“Ghar chaltein hain” She said and he nodded.

“Armaan, ghar pe kya bolenge” she asked looking at him.

“Don’t worry, maine Uncle ko inform kar diya hai aur sab log sone chale gaye hain, kal sabko kaam hai” Armaan said and she nodded.

“Wasie Basket, mujhe nhi pata tha tum ek heart surgeon hoke aisa kaam karogi” Armaan said looking at her occasionally.

“Maine kya kiya?” she look at him being confused.

“Kya kiya? Itni cute kyu ho tum? Tumhe pata hai itna sundar hona v gunah hota hai, ek photo se hi dil chura liya tha tumne mera, aur ek heart surgeon hoke dil churane me tumhe sharam nhi aai” He look at her saying that she was confused at first when he started but coming till end she started blushing on his comment.

“Stop it Armaan” she looks away.

“Oye hoyye” he whisper and she become more red.

Soon they reached home and leaving her in room Armaan left after kissing her forehead asking her sleep without any stress and leave other things on him.

Next morning,

Armaan was in his room talking to someone discussing about something when Ananya came.

“Ammy, kab aaya tu raat me? Kya hua tha tune Riddhima ko kuch bola to nhi?” she asked being worried.

“Don’t worry Mom, sab kuch solve ho gaya hai, bas ek din ka time de do, apko apka beta aur bahu dono mil jayenge wholeheartedly” Armaan winked at her and she chuckeld on his words.

“Pagal” she ruffled his head and left.

“Armaan” Riddhima knocked his door.

Armaan didn’t answer and she stepped inside when door closes on her back.

She turn around by the sound and saw Armaan standing there with his full smile.

“Armaan, darwaja kholo, band kyu kiya?” she look at him.

“Aise koi hame disturb to nhi karega na” Armaan move towards her.

“Armaan, meri ek suregrey hai, mai hospital ja rahi hu yahi bolne aayi thi, I’m getting late” she said looking at her watch.

“Jaalim profession” Armaan sighs.

“You don’t even seem to be serious like doctors” Riddhima glared him.

“Kyunki bhagwaan ji ko pata tha ki jo aane wali hai meri life me wo jyada serious hai isliye mujhe nhi banaya aisa” Armaan murmured and she left his room chuckling on his words.

Armaan met Rahul and Muskaan and they did some arrangements to execute his plan.

Later at evening, Armaan told something to Shashank and he nodded giving him permission.

“Anjali, Atul tumhe leke hamari surprise location pe pahuch jayega, so get ready” Armaan said and holding Riddhima’s hand he moved out of house.

Anjali chuckled looking at both of them, she really wanted them to settle down and now that seems to be happening coz Riddhima didn’t denied him holding her hand.

“Armaan kaha le ja rahe ho?” she asked once they sit in the car.

“Tumhe kidnap kar raha hu” he replied.

“Very funny” she mocked him.

They reached at Muskaan’s house.

“Arey ham yaha kyu aaye hain?” she asked again.

“Andar to chalo” he winked at her.

“Welcome Lovebirds” Muskaan and Rahul teased them.

“Aisa kuch nhi hai” Riddhima said instantly.

“Ha hame dikh raha hai” Muskaan winked at her.

“Sab ready hai Rahul?” Armaan asked.

“YES BOSS” Rahul said and he smiled.

Muskaan pointed towards guest room and Armaan move towards it holding her hand.

“Armaan, baat to batao kya hai” she asked again.

“Bakset, you need to get ready, we have some work before we could start party for Anjali” Armaan said.

“But mai to ready hu na”she look at him.

“In this dress” Armaan showed her.

Her eyes popped out looking at the dress, it was short skin fit dress, landing upto middle thigh and black shining material was giving it an elegent yet sexy look.

“Armaan no I can’t” Riddhima look at him.

“Bakset, listen to me,,,,, just trust me,,,, I’ll shield you, I’ll protect you I promise and I won’t ask you to do anything like this again coz I fell in love with your simplicity. But please aaj ek din k liye, just for few hours” Armaan requested.

She look into his eyes, she don’t know what he was going to do but yeah she trust him.

She went to washroom to change and Armaan wait in room for her. Hearing the knob he turn around and she was feeling too shy to come out infront of him. Armaan just rooted on his spot, the girl he love, Riddhima his Basket was standing there in a get up which make him groan inside controlling himself to just kiss her hard right there right now showing how capitaving and ravishing she was looking at the moment.

Getting no response from Armaan she felt it was not looking good on her “I told you I can’t do this, I won’t look good in these stuffs” Riddhima was about to turn when he hold her hand on the knob and stood behind her.

“I can’t explain you Basket how hard it was for me to control myself, trust me I’ll never let you wear such dresses infront of other, it will be only for me,,,,,, infront of me,,,,,, in our room,,,,,, honeymoon,,,,, but I swear not infront of any other person, You are mine and I won’t allow anyone to see something which only belongs to me” his voice was so husky and deep that she shiver and uneven breathing was showing how hard it was for him to control his feelings right now.

Riddhima just blushed harder getting a deeper shade of red.

“Riddhima just trust me and do as I say” Armaan whisper again gaining his conscious.

“Chalein guys, it’s time” Muskaan knocked.

“Yup” Armaan opens the door and they came out.

“OMG! Ridzi,,,,, girl you are looking so sexy,,,,, tujhe to jabarjasti le jana chahiye tha hame shopping k liye and parties k liye, ladke to bas ek look se hi,,,,,” Muskaan start when Armaan coughed “Ok Hero, fine, nhi jana tha teri Heroine ko bahar, it’s good, she was waiting for you”

“Chalein ab?” Rahul said and they left.

Coming out in a pub, Armaan covered her like a shield and she don’t feel any danger, his eyes were enough for assurance.

“Ok, Riddhima, Muskaan will take you inside, waha pe Vivek hoga, before you panick, just listen to me very carefully, he destroyed you and I want to make him clear that in any case he should understand what he lost, how precious you were and what mistake he did, so just trust me, I’ll be there around you, hmm” Armaan said cupping her face his palm and she nodded.

He always give her strength and she smiled “Not for me Armaan, I’ll do it for you”

“Thanku Basket” HE MUMBLED.

Entering in pub, Muskaan walk here and there trying to notice Vivek, he was drooling over some girl which make Riddhima make a disgusting face, thank God she was safe with Armaan.

Muskaan let her dance with herself a bit and when she saw Vivek approaching towards them she move at bar counter.

“Hey Muskaan, it’s Muskaan from our medical college na?” Vivek asked coming towards them.

Riddhima just void him and sipped her drink.

“Oh! Ya,,,, you are Vivek na, hie nice to meet you” Muskaan said shaking her hand.

“Who’s this beauty Muskaan, won’t you introduce me” he pass her a lustful look and Armaan get up to beat him when Rahul hold his hand, asking him to wait.

“Oh! C’mon don’t tell me you don’t know the person who introduce you to me,,,,, Ridzi,,,, see who is here Vivek, you remember” Muskaan tapped her shoulder.

Riddhima opened her eyes, knowing it’s time and turn around.

“Oh!! Vivek,,,,, Um was he there in our medical class….. I don’t remember properly anyways, hi nice to see you” she rolled her eyes saying so.

“Ri,,,,Riddhima ,,,,, tum? Ye tum ho? O you changed a lot,,,,, if you won’t mind we should hang out some time, waise v ham to kitna time spend karte the ek dusre k sath,,,,, maine socha nhi tha ki tum itni hot,,,,,, aur sexy lagogi warna kabhi jata hi nhi chhod k tumhe” he was completely a sick person with sick mentality.

“Really,,,,, chhod k jana,,,,,I wish if I had any memories of that,,,, you know I use to be so busy that I can’t remember use less things” Riddhima replied in attitude.

“Ha, may be,,,, shall we go for dance” he tried to tocuh her when Armaan reached near her and Riddhima look at him then smile, Muskaan move towards Rahul joining him in dance as she knew Armaan will handle the things now.

“Oh! You want to dance with me,,,,, but sorry to burst your bubble Vivek,,,,, I only like to dance with my fiancée,,,,,, let me introduce him….. Armaan please come here” she smiled cutely and Armaan came towards her holding her from waist.

“Inse milo ye Vivek hain, he was my classmate during medical and Vivek meet Armaan Mallik, my fiancee” Riddhima hold him possessively and Armaan observe the colour draining away from his face.

Armaan was standing there beside her with all the glory he hold, looking dashing and smart like always, his tonned and muscular body was enough to make Vivek lost the battle before he even thought of fighting for Riddhima, there was no way to get into her life now.

“A,,,,Armaan Mallik,,,, the famous cardiologist from USA” Vivek kind of trying to confirm.

“yes,,,,, and you know what he is the best person whom I met in my life,,,, he is the one who’ll always be there with me,,,,,, anyways, nice catching up with you,,,,, Chalein Armaan” she look at him then turning towards Armaan she asked.

“Sure,,,,, wanna dance?” he smiled looking at her and she nodded.

Armaan was more than happy to get her all for himself, the way she introduced him as her fiancée was a blessed moment for him, he just wanted to hug her tight to make her relax but Vivek need to see some more to realise what he actually lost.

“God, Basket, you were just amazing,,,,, I didn’t thought you will handle this matter so efficiently” Armaan hugged her to make her calm down and start moving on the rhythm.

“Thanku Armaan, mai aaj sach me bahut khush hu, I just felt like coming out of some prison, thanku so much” she said genuinely looking into his eyes and he smiled broadly deepening his dimples.

Vivek was watching them from behind, he knew now he can’t do anything, he lost something which he could easily get at that time,,,, but Riddhima was to be saved for Armaan that what the fate did.

Looking at his smiling face, Riddhima just tip toed up and placing her one palm over his cheek she kissed his other cheek, keeping her lips there for a moment.

Armaan stood there being an statue and Vivek left after watching this. His eyes popped out and she giggled, looking at her he turn around to see whether it was to show Vivek or something else.

Riddhima hold him by his collar and looking into his eyes she said “Don’t you dare to think it was to show someone anything, it was only for you Dr. Armaan Mallik” she whisper almost on his lips but didn’t touched it. Armaan was getting shock after shock from Riddhima and she was really enjoying that look on his face, he really looks cute with those expressions.

Riddhima left him there on dance floor and came out of pub near their car, next moment Armaan too came out running towards her. She was satnding near the car controlling her breath when Armaan turn her around in his hold pinning her on the car window he look into her eyes.

“What are you exactly trying to do Basket,,,,, you think it was really funny” he look at her and leaned over her mingling his breath with hers.

“A,,,,,Armaan” she looks away being shy.

“What Armaan ha,,,,, do you have any idea how I was trying to deviate my mind, stopping myself to come close to you,,,,, and what you did just few minutes back didn’t helped me in any way” Armaan was having a urge to kiss her and devour her all by himself at that moment, he wanted to believe that she was for him. Her acts always make him believe but why she didn’t said anything yet.

He was about to say something when his phone vibrate.

“Ha, mai bahar hu, Riddhima v,,,, aa jao fir chalte hain” Armaan said and cut the call.

“Basket” Armaan called her and she look upward “Car me ek shrug rakha hai just wear that, you’ll feel comfortable, hame Anjali ki party k liye chalna hai”

“Party,,,,, hmm, I’ll go with you,,,, aur baki sab log v to honge, they’ll feel happy na Armaan?” she looked at him while wearing that shrug.

“They’ll be more than happy Basket, trust me” Armaan said.

“Chalein lovebirds” Rahul came there.

“Hmm” he nodded and soon the reached at the place where party was kept.

“It’s time guys, just cross check everything” Armaan said entering inside, soon staff start checking everything and nodded.

“Abhimanyu, bring them in” Armaan said and cut the call.

He hold her hand securely and she smiled “Lights off” Armaan commanded.

“Abhimanyu, ye kaha leke aaye ho mujhe, kitna andhera hai yaha” Anjali said and Riddhima tried to control her giggle.

“Sushh” Armaan kept his finger over her lips in darkness and slightly kissed her neck.

“Armaan” she shifted a bit and soon light came back.

“SURPRISE” Riddhima shouted loudly and Anjali was just dumbstruck looking at her.

She was giggling happily and hugged her, she was present there in party for her,,,,,, Anjali can’t think of anything else.

“OMG!Ridzi,,,,, my biggest surprise is you my baby sister,,,, love you so much,.,,, finally I can get married happily. Thanku Armaan I really owe you.” ANjali said and Armaan smiled.

“Kya baat hai Saaliji,,,,, apne to hamara surprise dugna kar diya” Atul too hugged her from side.

Armaan was smiling looking at her being happy and mingling with everyone wholeheartedly. That was all he wished for.

Soon everyone get busy in party forgetting every other thing, they invited most of Anjali and Atul’s friend, Armaan don’t know many so he was just stucked around Rahul and Muskaan Riddhima Nikki were with Anjali.

A girl came near Armaan and tried to ask him for dance which he denied politely. Now Riddhima noticed how girls were all drooling over him and he was not even aware of anything, his eyes were wandering over her every now and then.

She smiled knowing nothing matters to him other than her.

Armaan was having a drink when a girl came drooling over him and his drink slightly fell over his shirt. Since upper three buttons of his shirt was open the drink almost wetted his chest and before he could do anything, that girl tried to wipe it away using tissue saying sorry. Armaan hold her and said it’s okay.

Riddhima gulped down some drink in anger and move towards him.

He was about to say anything when Riddhima hold his hand and dragged him out of party. Since, Armaan arranged the party so whole pub was booked and every one was inside thus it was silent outside but not in Riddhima’s mind.

“Kya kar rahe the tum?” she look at him angrily.

Armaan gulped down his saliva slowly looking at her angry face “Mai kya kar raha tha Basket”

“Don’t Basket me Armaan, I saw tum kya kar rahe the” she pointed her finger at him stumbling a bit.

“Basket” Armaan hold her.

“Tu,,,,tum us ladki se baat ,,,,, nhi baat nhi wo ladki tumhe touch kar rahi thi Armaan and you were just standing like that” Riddhima utter stammering.

“Basket, tum theek ho? Kya drink kiya tumne?” Armaan asked.

“Tumse kya? Tum jao us ladki se apni shirt clean karwao, aur chance do sabko tumhare paas aane ka, tumhari shirt touch karne ka” Riddhima looks away angrily.

Armaan chuckled on jealous Riddhima, he was literally enjoying that look on her face.

“Bakset,,,,, are you jealous?” he asked.

“Jealous my foot, agar ek baar v aur koi ladki aayi na tumhari shirt pe drink girane aur wipe karne k bahane tumhe touch karne to mai jaan le lungi tumhari” Riddhima glared him and he instantly stopped smiling.

“Meri kyu?” he asked.

“Tumhe kya padi rahti hai aise ladkiyo k paas rahne ki, ek to puri shirt khol k ghumte rahte ho” Riddhima said and Armaan was really amazed by how she was scolding him.

“Puri nhi Basket, sirf teen hi to,,,,, itni garmi thi na isliye” Armaan said controlling his smile.

“Don’t try to act so smart Dr. Mallik, andar pub me ac full swing me hai, so don’t even try” Riddhima said almost leaning over him.

“ok,,,,ok, Basket, I’m sorry,,,,, I won’t do it again promise” Armaan said knowing she drank something.

“Good, just be with me,,,,, and no other girls” Riddhima hold his hand tightly.

“Who want any other girl,,,, I’ll be happy forever with you by my side” Armaan smiled.

“Arm,,,,aaan, tumhe pata hai tum bahut cute ho” Riddhima was not in her senses.

Armaan informed Anjali that he was taking her back, as she drink something.

Armaan reached home, since next day will be Anjali’s marriage thus everyone slept early only guard was there, Riddhima was not listening anything so Armaan just kept his hand over her mouth and take her inside her room. He breath being relaxed as no one saw them like that. He quickly move towards Riddhima laying her on bed.

“Riddhima baby,,, mai bas ek minute me aaya, tum please yahi pe rahna aise hi” Armaan said and she nodded like a cute girl keeping her finger over her lips.

Armaan rushed down, prepare a lemonade and came back in Riddhima’s room. Locking the room from inside he went towards the bed but saw no one there.

Hearing the water flow he move towards washroom, he stopped at the door but she was not in her senses he just open the door and saw her all wet in shower.

Armaan suddenly started feeling so hot and deviate his gaze from her body, she was not in her senses and he will have to handle her anyhow, he can’t loose his mind now.

“Riddhima, it’s night, just come back” he slowly hold her hand and drag her out of shower.

He dried her hair and gave her towel to dry herself.

“Please tum hi kar do na” Riddhima stood up and Armaan’s eyes popped out as he was really struck at a place where he can’t do anything.

“Bakset, you know mai kuch leke aaya hu tumahre liye, you just change your dress and come, fir mai dikhata hu, aise pani wale dress me aaogi to room ganda ho jayega na” Armaan tried his luck and she nodded.

ThanK God, murmuring it he pass her towel and she got her night dress on stand. Riddhima quickly change and Armaan was waiting outside.

“Tum kya laye the Armaan?” she asked coming out.

She was looking so fresh and beautiful without any make up. Armaan smiled as he love this girl totally.

“Ye” he pointed towards the lemonade.

“I don’t want anything” she said stammering.

“Basket, if u’ll have this then I’ll stay here, else I’ll go” Armaan said trying to move when she hold his hand and come infront of him.

Armaan didn’t understand what happened.

“Ar,,,,,maan, you know what ,,,,,, I don’t wanna be away from you, just don’t leave me,,,,,,,,” Riddhima said and in that condition also tears dwell up in her eyes “I LOVE YOU” Armaan was about to say something when he heard that and look at her being shocked.

She confessed to him but in drunk state,,,,, he was happy beyond limit and hugged her.

“But don’t let those girls come near you” Riddhima demanded.

“Ok,,,, but if they came again then,,,,,,,” Armaan was saying when Riddhima cut off.

“No one will come, only I’ll be here” she said leaning over him and kissed on his lips.

It was so sudden for Armaan, he didn’t expect anything thus they just fell on the bed. Riddhima was kissing him softly and he smile when her soft lips touched his. He always dreamed of that touch and it was so sudden for him and he don’t even know whether she will remember it next day or not but he was happy as Riddhima will be with him always.

Soon he realized his position and get up slightly making her frown.

“You don’t love me?” she make a crying face.

“Basket, I love you baby,,,, but you know I have prepared this only for you,,,, and if we love someone then don’t deny their words na,,,, so if u love me then have this please” Armaan said.

“Only for you” Riddhima pouted.

“Hmm” he blinked.

Riddhima drank the lemonade and after sometime sleep soundly holding his hand, he covered her properly and switching off the light he move towards his room.

That day bring so much things into his life, so much in a single day,,,, he got whatever he wanted, Riddhima,,,, the one and only he ever dreamed off. She kissed him on cheek on pub which left him shocked and now in her room, while being drunk,,,,, it was really a feeling which he can’t describe, he can feel her lips now also….. groaning back in his bed he tried to get some sleep which was not possible at that night.
