Last Part : Similar Attracts (TS)

After 15 months…

"armaan we are going to be parents soon…" riddhima said excitedly as she walk down the stairs. Seeing his back towards her as she entered the kitchen she said one more time… "armaan we are going to be parents soon…" she said clapping her hands like a small child but getting no response from him she stopped and going near him she turned him around…

"armaan…aren't you excited?..." she asked to see him nodding his head but stopped when she looked at his face especially his cheeks…she narrowed her eyes looking at him as he tried avoid looking at her… "armaan what happened to your cheeks and why is it…?".. her eyes popped out and she stopped midway when she looked at the chocolate ice cream coming out from the corner of his mouth…



"armaan what is this?"…  she was irritated as now she knew what was he doing at 3:00 in the morning that too in the kitchen... "you again ate my ice–cream…you very well know this is my favorite and still…."she said looking at the ice cream carton which was almost half emptied…

"riddhima ..just morning craving..hehe…" armaan said making a puppy face but riddhima wasn't even interested in listening to him…picking up the carton she was about to keep it in the refrigerators when armaan came in between…

"riddhima just one scoop more …please baby..just one…" he stopped when riddhima glared at him…

"armaan why don't you eat your ice cream…you haven't even opened yours …and stop making those faces I am not going to melt this time…" she opened the refrigerator and kept it inside and turning around she saw him standing at the door … "I hate you …." He said pouting and went to the bedroom…

"armaan your mood swings ..i sometimes wonder it's me or you who is pregnant.." she told herself rolling her eyes and shaking her head went to the bedroom…

She entered the bedroom and saw him sitting at the end of the bed with crossed legs…she smiled looking at him and moving slowly sat next to him…

"armaan…" she said as she held his hand but armaan didn't even responded…he was looking at the ground with hands crossed on his chest… "I am sorry…" riddhima said holding her ears…armaan looked at her from the corner of his eyes as a smile played on his lips…

"riddhima it's okay…" he said and turned to come face-to-face with her…  "and I am sorry too…" he said to see her laughing at his childish behavior… "armaan…now tell me why were you eating my ice cream" she asked to see him looking at her nervously…. "armaan…" she said cupping his face in her hands…

"riddhima I don't know ..you know as the time is coming closer I am feeling jittery ..it's my first time and I don't know..i am scared..what if ...you know all those expectations..me a dad and all those responsibility …what if I am not able to stand….and…" he looked at riddhima and saw tears in her eyes…he stopped as riddhima hugged him… "armaan you are going to be the world's best dad….i know that… you are the best son..best husband and soon you are going to be the best dad…I can assure you…and stop getting scared..it's mine first time too and instead of you taking care of me …the whole nine month I was the one taking care of you…" feeling his hands around her she closed her eyes as she felt secured in his arms…. she knew he is smiling right now.… "btw armaan..you didn't answered my Q.. why did you eat my ice cream.." she asked as she opened her eyes and looked at him….

"riddhima..you know the answer..it's all coz of you…your morning cravings for ice-cream has turned me too…it's like I can't sleep without having ice-cream at 3:00 in the morning…"

"but last night you said you'll stop eating ..uska kya hua…?"..

"I was talking about last night …riddhima…"

"haha…very funny...armaan…" she said turning her face the other way…

"okay fine…today I promise no more morning cravings from tomorrow…. Happy…"  but not seeing any response he stood down and sat on the ground and making her look at him… "riddhima…I am sorry..i am promising this time…I won't eat yours from tomorrow…"

"promise?..." she asked pointing her finger at him…

"promise.." he smiled looking at her and hugged her….

"yes……" she said excitedly as she was still hugging him… "riddhima what's so exciting?..." he asked separating from the hug as he looked at her…

"Armaan my water broke….armaan.." she said happily… "armaan…AAAAHHHHH… my water broke…" she said clutching her stomach as now she was in pain…. Armaan stood rooted to the spot when she told him but hearing her screaming he came out of his thoughts and ran towards the table to pick up his car keys….holding the car keys and the bag which riddhima had already packed before he opened the door of the bedroom … "riddhima come on get up…" he said making riddhima stand as riddhima clutched his shirt…

"armaan…AAAAHHH.." ....she held him for support as armaan started moving down to the car…

"armaan I can't walk…armaan…" she said as they walked downstairs…

"riddhima listen…I can't take you in my arms..you are way too heavy for me..understand baby…" he said as riddhima stopped …he turned and saw her angered face…

"WHAT..?..you are saying that I am fat…" she asked narrowing her eyes…

"no riddhima I am just saying that I have lost oodles of weight and I can't carry you…now can we go I thought you are in pain…" he said giving his hand to riddhima as she walked with him… "Women …" he thought rolling his eyes.…

Armaan started driving the car as riddhima sat in the car screaming in pain…

"riddhima can you scream softly…I am having difficulty in driving…" he said only to receive a tight slap on his arm…

"hey it hurts…riddhima.." he said rubbing his arm only to receive few more slaps…

"it hurts…it hurts and what about me…can't you see the pain I am going through…"

"riddhima that's why I am asking you…. now behave like a good girl and let me drive…."

"armaan I am behaving like a good girl but you are not behaving like a good boy...can't you drive a bit faster..it looks as if we are walking….." riddhima said holding her stomach as the pain was slowly increasing and on that armaan was driving at the speed of tortorise…watching him still driving at the same speed riddhima turned and looked at him… "armaan you better speed up the car else we are having the baby in the car only…" hearing her he looked at her in shock as her words echoed in his head… "in the car…no way…".. he thought…

"riddhima I just got these car covers last week … it's very expensive and I won't let you…"  he turned and looked at her..if she wasn't in pain she surely would have killed him by now and armaan knew this very well…

"ARMAAN…JUST DRIVEEEE.." she shouted looking ahead as armaan nodded speeding up the car…

Finally they reached the hospital ..opening the door armaan went towards her and slowly made her get out of the car…he held her as they entered the hospital…making her sit he ran towards the reception… " I… I…I.. am having a baby…" armaan said reaching the reception.. the nurse looked at him in surprised as she heard him…

"excuse me…." ..

"I mean..my wife ..she ..she is in labor I need a doctor..call a doctor..please.." nurse nodded and told the ward boy to bring a wheel chair.. as ward boy came with the wheel chair armaan sat on the chair and told him to move.. Ward boy started taking him to the OT when all of a sudden he heard riddhima voice..while still sitting on the wheel chair he turned his face and looked at the ward boy…

"where am I going…?" he asked looking at the ward boy…

"sir OT…you told me to move so I am taking you to the OT…"..armaan smacked his head hearing him…

"idiot… my wife is in labour..and you are taking me..are you out of your mind?…" he asked and making him turn around moved towards the area where riddhima was waiting for him…making her sit on the wheel chair they made their way to the OT.. armaan sat beside riddhima as they waited for the doc to arrive…

"riddhima everything going to be fine…doc is coming..you just.."

"armaan I am fine you stop getting hyper..i know everything will be fine… AAHHH…where the hell is the doctor…DOCTORRRRR…" she screamed in pain when doc entered the room….

"mr. malik..you please go outside…" armaan nodded and was about to leave when riddhima held his hand…

"you are not going anywhere..just sit…I won't let you go so easily…"…

"but riddhima doctor…"..

"armaan I said you are not going anywhere…SIT DOWN.." she ordered looking at him..armaan looked at the doc and seeing her smiling at him he quietly sat to her… 

The operation started and everything was going smoothly when all of a sudden the whole hospital came to a standstill hearing a man's screaming from the labor room…

"AAAAHHHHHHHHHH……" armaan was screaming in pain holding his hands…

"NOW WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING….ARMAAN" riddhima shouted in frustration looking at him in anger..

"riddhima your nails…and..and.. my hand.." he looked at his hand which had turned red as riddhima had held is hand so tightly that she had poked her nails in his hand…

"armaan..just shut up…SHUT UPPPPP…"

The whole time while the operation was going on armaan was screaming in pain as riddhima didn't let go of his hand …the operation was successful and she had tears of joy hearing her baby voice…she turned and looked at armaan who was all tired coz of the screaming…

"riddhima…I ….i ..am exhausted…" he said as riddhima left his hand…he looked at his baby, smiled and  closing his eyes slumped on the ground ….riddhima shook her head , smiling looking at him and closed her eyes as she was tired too…

The whole Malik family celebrated the arrival of a new member….no one had ever thought that me and armaan will be married one day and we'll fall in love...we were already in love but we never realized till the day of our marriage when we both saved each other from our parents anger and then we realized how much we can't stay from each other and we love each other... .our parents were so mad at us they didn't talked to us for whole one month..and we both had a really hard time asking for forgivness...and now after 15 months of our marriage we are the proud parents of a baby girl..yes we had a girl and more than me it's armaan who takes care of her, always playing with her, pampering her but that doesn't mean we don't fight... now- a- days we are busy fighting picking names for our baby and even our baby joins us ... we ask her for approval after telling her the name..if she cries we go to the next name and finally after much fighting between the three of us we have come up with "Zahra".. qute name isn't?...

This was my not so perfect story but it's not the end I know you all must be curious to know what actually happened that day when me and armaan were running away from our marriage…our marriage was the talk of the town not coz we are from an affluent family that's one reason…but that day something else happened and whenever I think about that day it brings a smile on my face… that day we both had written the letter saying the same thing that we both don't want to marry each other and that's why we are running away from the marriage…Our dad's read the letter even before we could leave the house but they couldn't catch us that time so they started following us…but if you are thinking they caught us then you are wrong..we got married coz that day we both used our brain way too much then how much we normally use...the car in which we were running stopped at the middle of the road and we had no other option but to run…so after running in the car we started running on our legs with our dad's behind us in the car…we were still figuring out where to go when we saw someone's marriage was taking place at a hotel..as we both were dressed in our marriage dress the best option we could figure out at that time to escape was to hide there..but then we got the biggest shock of our life coz as we entered the room …we saw the familiar faces gazing at us….yes ..it was our marriage that was supposed to take place there…we were so busy running that we didn't realized where we were heading and our journey ended to the place where we never wanted to come at that time…we stopped at the entrance seeing everyone giving looks at us…. there was no way escaping and soon after our dad's arrived.. mine was the first marriage in the history of malik's where the bride and the groom entered together that too from the main entrance holding hands and with our dad's behind us with the four of us breathing heavily coz of running…I know it's quite funny but this is how it was meant to be and I can say me and armaan are the perfect match for each other…i don't know about other's but we are attracted to each other for the rest of out lives...

THE END

loads of love..
