Part 16 : Dill Ki Baat

SANGEET       

 Anjali walked into the large decorated hall, the sangeet was well under way with girls laughing and dancing around the room. Anjali spotted Krishna and walked over to congratulate her



Anjali: "Krishna babe" she bent down and hugged Krishna affectionately. Just then a girl who was sitting near to Krishna turned around hearing the voice



Ridz: "Anjali? tum yaha?" Ridz and Anjali looked at each other shocked and amazed for and amazed. Almost instantly the confusion disappeared and Ridz stood up and hugged Anjali




Krishna looked at both of her freinds, shocked at the way they seemed so close "Ridhu tum Anji ko janti ho?"



Ridz pulled back from the hug, "Ha, Anjali meri dost hai, aur meri saath hospital mein intern hai' par tum isko kaise jaanti ho?"



Anjali know butted in "Ridz mein aur Anjali London mein aek saath padayi karte te, phir mein yaha India agayi aur woh wahi rehgayi... aur tum dono aek dusre ko kaise jaante ho"



Krishna laughed at the coincidence of the whole matter, "Mein aur Ridz bachpan se dost hai, uhi kaho ki dost se zyada hum beheno ki tara hai"



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



Sapna cam running upto Ridz "di, challo na naache te hai"



Ridz: "nahi Sapna, tum jao, mein yahi teekh hu"



Krishna: "kya hua ridz, jao, tummhe toh sirf mokah hi chahiye centre of attention banne kiliye"



Sapna: "Jaane dijiye na Krishna di, di ko kaha naachna aata hai, meine toh sirf polite hone kiliye poocha ta... waise" Masti now approached the group with Minnie holding her hand, "mein aur Masti toh inki chooti kardenge, hai na Masti" Sapna winked at Masti to play along.



The one thing Ridz couldn't do was back out of a challenge, another point to her countless flaws. Krishna caught on to what the little girls were up to and smiled at their shararat "Oh ridhu, Sapna net oh challenge karli hai, abh kya karoge?" she winked at Sapna and grinned "waise agar tum chaho toh hum sab yeh maan sakhte hai ki Ridz ko naachna nahi aata"



Ridz: "huh, mujhe aur naachna' hahaha, for your kind information mein bohot achi tarah se naach sakhti hu aur logho ko nachana sakhti hu. Come one Anjali" without she started to walk towards the middle of the room



Anjali: "Hoi, yaha mein kaha beech mein agayi, mujhe nahi naachna" Ridz rushed back towards Anjali and whispered desperately



Ridz: "Please Anjali, humari dosti ki kaathir' please mujhe in picheo ko sabakh seekhana hai.. mujhe challenge karte hai, Ridhima Gupta, huh"



The room got dark, everyone hushed to see what was happening, Ridz nervously looked towards Krishna. She hadn't taken centre stage by herself since her engagement had broken off. Krishna noticed the nervousness in Ridz eyes and gave a her a reassuring smile and wink



Ridz took her cue and started to sing.....



ankhiya na maar mere
ankhiya na maar mere



Ridz turns around and winked at Sapna who now has a massive grin plastered on her face. She was so happy to see her sister getting back to normal and everything going realy well for her finally



ankhiya na maar mere yaar mundiya
tenu nai karna pyar mundeya

ankhiya na maar mere yaar mundiya

tenu nahi karne pyar mundeya
mere dil se i deewane nahin khel na
jaave jaave jaave mere dholna nahin bolna
jaava jaave jaave mere dholna



Ridz got into the full swing off the music now dancing around the floor, sashaying around like she was gliding on the floor



ankhiya na maar mere yaar mundiya
tenu nai karna pyar mundeya



Ridz made her way over to Krishna and nudged her shoulder against her which made Krishna loose her balance slightly, this made Sapna and Masti laugh alot as Krishna was now pretending to be angry with Ridz



mere dil se i deewane nahin khel na
jaave jaave jaave mere dholna nahin bolna
jaava jaave jaave mere dholna



Sapna and Masti wanted to join in dancing with Ridz now but Sapna pointed out to Masti that if they did then Ridz would more then likely stop dancing, so instead they sat their pretending to not look interested. Anji on the other hand was having a blast, her and Ridz were singing and dancing away



reiya sharatane hai mainu luteya
dil de deewana tere uth mar miteya

reiya sharatane hai mainu luteya
dil de deewana tere uth mar miteya
tan sheeshe ka hain na uchalna
jaave jaave jaave mere dholna nahin bolna
jaave jaave jaave mere dholna



Ridz twirled around Sapna sticking out her tongue as she passed her' Sapna immediately took the challenge up '



Chori chori chupke se aayega woh
Aake tumhe le jaayega haan
Chori chori chupke se aayega woh
Aake tumhe te jaayega haan
Yehi jeevan hai apna yehi to woh sapna
Main ne dekha tune dekha hum sab ne dekha
Yeh sapna na toote na roothe tera raanjhna
Chori chori chupke se aayega woh
Aake tujhe le jaayega haan



Sapna and Masti danced around Ridz, while Ridz stood there blushing profusely' she could see the love in her sisters eyes for her and her own welled up slightly. She smiled brightly at her sister and to be sister-in-law


Ridz and Anji went towards Krishna who was sitting there all this time was enjoying the spectacle'.she had completely forgotten that this was supposed to be her sangeet.



Ridz and Anji dragged a reluctant Krishna from her seat and all four girls (Sapna, Masti, Anji and Ridz) started dancing around her while a very shy and embarrassed looking Krishna stood there beaming at her friends

Ang se ang lag jaaye to
Pyaar ka rang lag jaaye to
Ang se ang lag jaaye to
Pyaar ka rang lag jaaye to
Rang phir na yeh chute
Na roothe tera raanjhna
Chori chori chupke se aayega woh
Aake tujhe le jaayega haan



Ridz started to sing now to Krishna now, holding Krishna's shoulders from the back who was now getting slightly emotional and teary eyed, while the other girls continued to dance



Kitne janmon ka yeh mel hai
Shaadi kismat ka ek khel hai
Kitne janmon ka yeh mel hai
Shaadi kismat ka ek khel hai
Aisi kismat na phoote
Na roothe tera raanjhna
Chori chori chupke se aayega woh
Aake tujhe le jaayega haan



Krishna hugged Ridz tightly as the song finished, when they heard from behind'



Armaan and Shiv had already entered by now and were eqaully amazed and by the sheer beauty of their loved ones now hugging in the middle of the room.



It seemed like a lifetime since Armaan and Ridz had met according to his feelings at that moment, and it seemed since the last time they ahd met Ridz was a completely different person, her beauty seemed to have doubled since he last saw her and the affection she now showed towards her friend he felt he hardly knew her. How can someone be so fun loving and carefree and still manage to be so mature and sensitive? Armaan was falling in love with her all over again' he was still in a trance when Sujal who was standing behind his brother and brother-in-law was laughing at there state started singing.considering this was a sangeet it was only fitting



Banno Ki Mehndi Kya Kehna
Banno Ka Joda Kya Kehna
Banno Lage Hai Phoolon Ka Gehna
Banno Ki Aankhen Kajrari
Banno Lage Sabse Pyaari
Banno Pe Jaaon Main Vaari Vaari



Ridz and Krishna broke away from the hug and saw Armaan and Shiv staring at them'completely lost in a world of their own. For Krishna this was the funniest sight she had seen in ages, she never thought Shiv could look so silly with his mouth hanging half open and his eyes almost popping out of their sockets' Ridz on the other hand seeing Armaan after such a long time felt like a new born woman.



Unknowingly she had been waiting to catch a glimpse of Armaan since the sangeet had began, and now finally when she had seen him she couldn't contain her emotions' almost immediately she went forward to hug Armaan, forgetting her surroundings' she took a few steps forward when she felt someone take hold of her arm' confused turned around to see Krishna holding her arm with a bewildered and amused look on her face. Ridz stared at Krishna for a few seconds then realised what she was about to do, she turned around to see Armaan with a huge grin on his face looking at her with his piercing eyes' becoming self concious for the second time that day Ridz turned around and rushed to go sit down with all the other girls'



Armaan smiled at the sheer beauty and innocense of Ridz, in that one moment he had seen and felt how she too had missed him and felt the same way he did after seeing her after such a long time. Taking the queue from Sujal jiju's song Armaan who usually didin't like making a show of himself started to sing the rest of the song'


Banno Ki Saheli Resham Ki Dori
Chhup Chhup Ke Sharmaaye Dekhe Chori Chori
Banno Ki Saheli Resham Ki Dori
Chup Chup Ke Sharmaye Dekhe Chori Chori
Yeh Maane Ya Na Maane Main To Ispe Mar Gaya
Yeh Ladki Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladki Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah


Not being able to step down from a challenge Ridz was now over the stage of being embarrased and shy stood up to sing the female part of the song with Anji, Masti and Sapna to accompany her


Babul Ki Galiyaan Na Chad Ke Jaana
Paagal Deewana Isko Samjaana
Babul Ki Galiyaan Na Chad Ke Jaana
Paagal Deewana Isko Samjaana
Dekho Ji Dekho Yeh To Mere Peeche Pad Gaya
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah


Shiv who had all time stood to a side still in shock from seeing Krishna looking so beautiful, started to sing to Krishna now



Lab Kahe Na Kahe Bolti Hai Nazar
Pyaar Nahin Chupta Yaar Chhupaane Se
Pyaar Nahin Chupta Yaar Chhupaane Se
Roop Ghoonghat Mein Ho To Suhana Lage
Baat Nahin Banti Yaar Bataane Se
Yeh Dil Ki Baatein Dil Hi Jaane Ya Jaane Khuda
Yeh Ladki Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah


As Shiv sang for Krishna, her heart leaped, she blushed and looked down not daring to look into Shiv's eyes. Nobody else apart Shiv and Ridz noticed this, feeling very protective of her friend Ridz jumped in



Mangne Se Kabhi Haath Milta Nahin
Jodiyaan Banti Hai Pehle Se Sabki
Jodiyaan Banti Hai Pehle Se Sabki
Oh Leke Baaraat Ghar Tere Aaonga Main
Meri Nahin Yeh Marzi Hai Rab Ki
Are Ja Re Ja Yun Jhooti Muthi Baatein Na Bana
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah



Banno Ki Saheli Resham Ki Dori
Chhup Chhup Ke Sharmaaye Dekhe Chori Chori
Babul Ki Galiyaan Na Chad Ke Jaana
Paagal Deewana Isko Samjaana
Yeh Maane Ya Na Maane Main To Ispe Mar Gaya
Yeh Ladki Yeh Ladki Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladki Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah
Yeh Ladka Haay Allah Haay Haay Re Allah



Soon the night ended and all the guests were on their way home. Krishna had already been taken up to her room to rest by Maya while Ridz stayed to help clear up. She was quitely humming away to herself smiling recollecting the events of the evening' when out of nowhere someone grabbed her from behind and pulled her behind a pillar, covering her mouth in the process.



Out of fear Ridz's immediately reaction was to fight back, she closed her eyes and tried to scream but the hand muffled her voice so she took her chance and bit the hand as hard as she could. Feeling the hand move away immediately she tried to push her way past but froze when she heard a man's voice shout out in pain.



Ridz: "Armaan?" she whispered, still amazed and confused



Armaan: "Nahi bhoot" he shook his hand in pain and studied the teeth marks on his hand. "Yeh kya basket, jabh bhi mein tumhe aise pakarti hu, tum mujhe kaathe kui ho"



Ridz: "Aise choro ki tarah harkat karoge toh aise hi hoga" she took a hold of his hand angrily and gently blew on the now swelling red teeth marks



Armaan stared at her lovingly as she gently blew on his hand "pehle dard deti ho, phir malam bhi tum laghi te ho?" he whispered near her ear, blowing gently on her hair. The warm breath kissed her ear, sending shivers down her spine. She closed her eyes, trying to control her emotions. Armaan slowly lifted her chin with his finger, Ridz slowly opened her eyes to find Armaan's eyes searching her face, and she could clearly see the love and passion in them. In that one moment their eyes seemed to speak a million words to each other. A smile played on Ridz's lips, remembering the way Armaan was staring at her earlier; she had never seen him looking so vulnerable and cute looking, it seemed as though across the room they were silently having a conversation with each other.



Armaan noticed the smile on Ridz's lips and loved the way her lips twitched when she was trying to hide her smile, unable to help himself he gently ran his thumb across her lip as his hand gently caressed her baby soft skin.



Ridz blushed further, this gentle teasing was driving her mad, Ridz's hand slowly and almost automatically reached uptowards Armaans face. As if yearning for her touch, Armaan closed his eyes and rubbed his face against her warm skin, completely lost in the moment both Armaan and Ridz had closed there eyes and were now just enjoying the warmth eminating from each other.



"Di, kaha ho aap, Krishna di bularehi hai" Sapna was coming down the stairs looking for Ridz.



Armaan instantly grabbed Ridz by her waist as both of their eyes shot open; this unwelcome intrusion had caught both of them off guard. Realising it was Sapna Ridz tried to move from Armaan's grip, feeling rather playful himself Armaan just held on tighter'



Ridz: "Chodo na' Sapna dekh legi"



Armaan: "Toh dekhne do, waise mein koi chori nahi karehi, joh sabse chup kar tumhe milu" he smiled cheekily down at her as a shocked pair of eyes looked back...



Composing herself "Agar chori nahi hain toh aise chup kui rehe ho, chalo Sapna ki saamne bhi chalo" now it was Armaan's turn to be shocked, was she being serious he thought



Sapna was coming closer and closer by the second to Armaan and Ridz's hiding place "Di kaho ho aap?"



Armaan moved his arms from around Ridz waist immediately, not wanting to get caught, but Ridz had other plans. As soon as Armaan let go off her waist she immediately flung her arms around Armaan's neck and pulled his face down for a long and pasisonate kiss. Sapna passed by them without seeing or disturbing them, Armaan and Ridz on the other hand were way past caring and completely lost in each other to notice anything around them. The kiss seemed to last forever, the hunger for each other was visible in their desperate kiss, all emotions that were locked away from 5 days now came across in this one long passionate kiss.



Finally breaking away from each other for the sheer need of oxygen, Armaan gazed into Ridz's eyes, completely lost.



Ridz: "Kya hua? Aise kya dekhrehe ho?"

 ......................
Ridz face started glowing red as she blushed while Armaan continued to stare at her intently'"Armaan" she gently gave him a shove to bring him out of his daze



Armaan beamed back at Ridz' "Jaanti ho, mein jab bhi tumhe dekhta hu, aise sharmate hue' tori gabrai hue tab laghta hai'" Armaan gently caressed Ridz cheek while he whispered gently to her "I'm falling deeply and madly in love with you all over again'" Ridz stared into Armaan's eyes questioningly, how can someone love her so much she thought silently as a small smile played on her lips again while she counted her lucky stars. Unaware of these thoughts Armaan continued " kabhi kabhi darr laghta hai... darr laghta hai ki yeh haseen sapna toot na jaye aur tum'" looking questioningly at Ridz "Tum mujhe chor kar kabhi nahi jaogi na?"



Ridz lifted her hand and held onto arms hand that was caressing her cheek, she smiled sweetly at Armaan "Mujhe pagal samajh rakha hai kya'" Armaan was slightly taken aback by this response, he lifted his eyebrow quizically, almost hearing his thoughts Ridz went onto explain "Abh hamare beech sirf baghwan hi asakhte hai' tab bhi mein unke saath ladkar tumhe kabhi bhi akhela nahi chodungi". Saying this part Ridz became slightly emotional, she could never imagine life without Armaan now, unknowingly Armaan had become the reason for Ridz existance and without him life just seemed unbearable.



Armaan was so touched by Ridz words, he wanted to say a million things back to Ridz but no words seemed to describe what he felt at that time. They both embraced each other longingly; Ridz rested her head on Armaan chest listening to his declaration of love from his heartbeat. Armaan closed his eyes holding Ridz close to him, feeling the warmth eminating from her body, her chest rising and falling as she peacefully hugged him back, Armaan finally felt at peace with life, the long awaited emptiness that had began to dawn on him when he dropped her off that day at Krishna's house after the beach night now disappeared, but deep down a nagging feeling kept on at him. This sense of belonging and feeling whole was going to be short lived, he would once again have to let her go' A silent tear slowly made its way down Armaan's cheek unknown to him.



Ridz opened her eyes as she felt a hot tear fall on her head, she raised her head slowly from Armaan's chest to see him standing there with his eyes closed, almost in meditation, if it wasn't for that small line of worry on his forehead he looked so content at that point, but it was that small line which worried Ridz, thinking about why Armaan was worried made her worry, she saw the trail of the tear that had shortly before landed on her head. She saw another tear slowly make its way down his cheek, slowly moving her hand upto his cheek she wiped the tear and poked it slighthly so his dimple would appear then swiftly placed a kiss on his dimple so his smile would deepen. Armaan still with his eyes closed smiled away to glory. How he had missed her and her little gestures.



Armaan opened his eyes and looked on shocked at the two grinning faces standing a few feet behind Ridz who was looking back at him with a gorgeous smile expecting a response to her little gift.



"Eh hem" Ridz jumped and shot her head around looking pertrified to see a smug looking Sapna and Masti standing there with their arms crossed trying very hard to hide their giggles. Realising they were still holding onto each other Armaan and Ridz parted immediately both shifting from one foot to another, looking everywhere but at each other. Sapna and Masti burst out laughing watching their elders acting like children caught stealing.



Mas: "Bhabhi ko itni jaldi chordi bhai?" She raised her eyebrows up and down while Sapna burst out giggling. Both Armaan and Ridz turned bright red



A: "Erm' mein chalta hu" and he started to rush past Masti and Sapna



Sap: "Arre  itne jaldi kya hai jiju" she winked at Armaan and nudged him, "abhi toh sirf humne pakra hai' abhi mummy bhi arehi hogi' aap tora intezaar kariye, mein abhi bulati hu unko" Sapna went to open her mouth and call out for her mother when Ridz quickly covered her mouth from behind and whispered dangerously in her ear'



R: "Agar Ma ko tumne kuch bhi kaha toh mein unko bata dungi ki tumne peechli maths test mein fail kiya ta, aur yeh bhi bata dungi kyun fail kiya' kissi Sahil'" she let the words linger as Sapna's eyes widened in horror. She immediately jerked her head around so she was facing Ridz and stared at her shocked as Armaan and Masti just watched on thinking what are these two sisters whispering about.



Finally finding the courage Sap: "Di' aapko'kaise'" Ridz now stood their with a huge evil grin on her face as she grinned at Sapna not ready to spill the beans any time soon.



Scared at being caught out Sapna grabbed Masti's arm and dragged her away from there' "kya hua.. hum'" Masti's questions could be heard fading away as Sapna dragged her away leaving a very happy Ridz and extremely confused Armaan behind.



Once the girls were out of view and Armaan was sure they weren't coming back he turned questioningly at Ridz who was smiling away very triumphantly. Sliding his arms around her waist from behind "Basket, tumne aisa kya kehdia dono baageye?" he murmured near her ear. Ridz turned around wrapped her arms around Armaan neck, smiling at him the entire time' "Kuch baatein bataya nahi jaate' chupana parta hai' ta ki aage jaakar balckmailing kiliye kaam aye" she winked at Armaan at which he laughed loving the how she handled the situation whereas he was too embarrased to utter a word.



Ridz walked Armaan out to the car, Masti and his mum had already left with Maya by then and Sapna and all the other girls were already asleep. They both walked silently towards the car hand in hand not wanting to let go, not really wanting this night end or any night that would see them being separated. Finally next to the car Armaan turned around and took hold of both of Ridz's hands.



A: "Aghar mein tumse kuch mangu kyat um dogge mujhe?" he smiled sweetly at her



Slightly puzzled by the question she replied "Joh bhi hai toh tumahara hai, mangne ki kya zaroorat hai". Armaan lifted Ridz hand and kissed them gently.



A: "Tab toh mein request nahi par hukhum karunga'" he made his goofey smile face. Armaan went around to his car boot and took out a large present. "Barso shaadi par tummhe yeh pehna hai"



R: "Armaan yeh kya?" she went to open it straight away but Armaan stopped her by gently placing his hand on hers to stop.



A: "bhaad mein kholna, jab mein yaha nahi hu, okay?" Armaan played with Ridz hair that was hanging open on her shoulders.



R: "Par mujhe abhi dekhna hai" she fussed like a kid, loving her childish acts he wondered how she had managed to stay so innocent in such a cruel world.

A: "You love me na, toh mera bhaat maano aur yeh bhaad mein kholna"



R: "Kissne kaha mein tumse pyar karta hu" she teased him,



A: "Tut tut, jhoot math bolna, warna pach taoge". Ridz knew exactly what he was hinting at and almost instantly the pain in her stomach erupted' clutching her stomach



R: "Fine. karti hu, abh jao" the pain started to ease away. Armaan watched on amused at how senseless Ridz was, if hadn't reminded her she would never have admitted she love him, and when she did admit it then she said it like this



Wrapping his arms around her petite waist once again, "pyar ka izhaar aise karte hai?" he gently pulled her closer to him and raised his eyebrow questioningly. Forgetting she was acting to be angry at him, Ridz lowered her gaze shyly as she felt the colour rise to her cheeks.



R: "Armaan, koi dekhlega" she whispered not daring to look at him. Knowing there was no chance of being caught at this hour of the night Armaan was in no mood to let this beautiful moment pass. The control his touch had over her excited Armaan to no ends, knowing what she was expecting to happen, Armaan decided to be playful. He gently blew on her face, casuing Ridz to close her eyes in delight. His strong masculine cologne was driving her mad, she was loosing all control of her senses. Armaan watched on in delight, he wasn't lying when he told she looked even more beautiful when she blushed, she really did look breath taking, the slight tint of pink was still visible on her cheeks under the moonlight which made her face radiate in the dark.



Armaan slowly moved his arms from around her waist closer to the front and before Ridz could react he started tickling her like mad. Almost instantly Ridz started laughing, her laughter rang through the night sky as Armaan continued to tickle her, laughing with her and enjoying the happiness that was so plain to see on her face.



After much begging, laughing and chasing around the car, they both stopped breathless form there night time exercise, feeling reluctant to go Armaan was trying to start any random conversation but as luck would have it nothing was to come out of it. Just as Armaan had managed to catch Ridz attention and they were about to start a deep conversation Armaan pager went off. Hitting his head with his hand..



A: "Mujhe jana hoga.. emergency case hai" he made a puppy sad face at Ridz



R: "Armaan tum Dr pehle phir Armaan' abh jao"



A: "Mann nahi kara tummhe chod kar jaane ko basket.. tum bhi aajao na mere saath hospital"



R: "Armaan, raath" quickly taking a look at her watch she looked at in in disbelief "Subah 3am bajrehe' tum jao" she started to push him into the car.



Armaan reluctantly sat in the car and rolled down the window "Par jaane ko maan nahi kara, please ajao mere saath"



R: "Armaan" she crossed her arms and made a fake angry face at him, then getting a better idea she smiled again "mujhe miss naa karo, uska bhi dawai hai meri paas" Armaan looked at her slightly puzzled again for the millionth time that night. Ridz bent down and kissed Armaan sweetly on his cheek. A huge smile spread across Armaan face as he slowly raised his hand to his cheek still taking in what had happened. He turned his head to say something but Ridz had already reached the front doors of the house. Just before going in she turned around and gave Armaan a flying kiss then vanished behind the large oak doors.
