Part 5 : Dill Ki Baat

A: "Jiju, aapko aaneh main itni der hagaye"

Ma: "Armaan tum jaanthe ho na Sujal ko, inki aadat hain har function mein der se aana" (Sujal is played by Eijaz Khan) "Abh woh inki khud ki shaadi ho yah phir chote bhai ki sagai par"

S: "Babes, tum bhi na, I said I'm sorry, woh shaadi ki din mein traffic mein pas gaya isliye ghar pochne mein dher hogaye"

Ma: "Don't 'Babes' me, Shiv ne mujhe batadiya ta ki tum apne 'stag do ki vajase late oote isliye dher hogayi"

S: "Iss Shiv ki mein toh band bajaonga" he muttered to himself



Ma: "Kya, tumne kuch kaha"

S: "Kaun mein? No babes, I think the voices in your head are talking to you again"

Maya hit him playfully on his sholder "Shut up, the only thing wrong with me is meine tumse shaadi ki"

Armaan who had been standing there laughing at this little episode between the two when he noticed from the corner of his eyes Ridz sitting at the top of the stairs almost in the shadows crying. She was lost in her thoughts crying silently.

A: "isse kya hogaya, yeh aise roh kyun rahi hai" he thought to himself, she looked so fragile and lonely crying there like that, "mujhe uski paas jana chahiye" he thought and with that excused himself from Maya and Sujal. He was just approaching the stairs when Minnie ran upto him saying the ring ceremony is beginning and she wanted him to carry her so she could see whats happening. Armaan turned to look at Ridz and she had disappeared again.

Standing at the stairs Ridz stared on in amazment and anger, "Armaan ko kya hogaya hai" she thought "Maya dikne mein kitni achi lagti ti par kaisi nikli aur Armaan, bechara woh uska pati hone ki bawajood usse pati hone ki koi darja nahi dejara... Kui bagwan, kui, aapne meri saath aise kui ki meine zindagi mein pehli bhar kisi ko itna pyar kiya aur woh mera nahi ho sakhta... Woh iss shaadi se kush bhi nahi hai pirbhi woh Minnie ki vaja se... I'm sure Minnie ki vaja se woh abitakh chup hai".

Thinking all this made Ridz so angry that she felt like yelling and crying at the same time, she couldn't understand why this was happening to her, she had never hurt anyone knowingly and always tried to keep others happy then why was god out to make her life miserable. Ridz was overcome with emotion and needed to get away from there as far as possible so she could breath, she felt suffocated being in the same room as Armaan and not being close to him. She wiped her face so as not to attract attention and went out into the garden unnoticed.

K: "Sapna, yeh Ridzy nazar nahi arehi, please ja kar usse bulao"

S: "Abhi ja kar laati hu Krishna Di" with that Sapna and Masti left to look for Ridz in the house.

Krishna's Dad approached Krishna as she said this to Sapna, "Kya hua Krishna beta, Riddhima kaha hai"

K: "Pata nahi Dad, par mein uski bina sagai nahi karungi"

Armaan was standing not to far listening to all of this not sure if he should say something about Ridz looking upset, and he couldn't go look for her otherwise what would people think. At this point Maya and Sujal approached Krishna and Raj,

Su: "Namaste uncle, kya baath hai Krishna tumhara iradha toh badhal nahi gaya, meri bhai se shaadi nahi karoge kya"

K: "Bhaiya aab bhi na" she said looking down blushing

M: "Hai me maar jawa, meri choti boh rani sharma gayi"

R: "Arre Raj beta tum agaye, dekho na kaisi zid laga beti hai, kehti uski seheli ki bina woh sagai nahi karegi. Ab tumhi isse samjao"

Su: "Is mein problem kya hai, Armaan..." He beckoned for Armaan to come over, "tum please jaa kar iski seheli ko dundh lao, warna mera bhai hamesha kuara reh jayega"

A: "Ji jiju" and turned towards Krishna "Aap ki seheli ki naam kya hai", he knew very well who he was going to look for but didn't want questions being raised

K: "Riddhima"

Sujal raised an eyebrow at this. Armaan left to go look for Ridz, as Sapna and Masti had gone to look for Ridz in the house, he decided to look outside in the garden.

As Armaan left Sujal took Raj aside

Su: "Riddhima... yeh naam kuch suni hui laghta hai uncle"

R: "Yaad hai, pichle hafte jab tum mujhe milne ayete meine tume aek larkhi ki tasweer dekhaya Armaan ki liye"

Su: "Haan, kuch kuch yaad hai..."

R: "Woh Riddhima ki tasweer ti"

Su: "Oh, sorry uncle, Shiv ki shaadi ki tayari mein woh mein itni busy hogaya ta ki mein uss bhaath ko bulgaya"

R: "It's okay beta, waise meine Armaan ki tasweer Padma bhabi, I mean, Riddhima ki maa ko bhi diya ta, par Riddhima ne dekhne se saaf inkhar kar di, so I guess is bhaath ko aghe barane se koi faida nahi"

Meanwhile in the garden

Ridz was sitting on a bench at the far end of the garden secluded from the rest of the house. She was sitting there with her eyes closed listening to the nearby fountain, the mist gently travelled with the air to her face as she sat there with silent tear drops occasionally falling down her cheeks.

The fairy lights decorating the entire house were reflecting from the water on the fountain onto her outfit and faces, making her look like a mirage.

Ridz was so lost in the soothing sound of the water that she didn't notice someone sit next to her.

Armaan was looking for Ridz in the garden when he noticed something shimmering at the far end of the garden. As he went closer he noticed Ridz sitting there with her eyes closed looking like a dream. The sight of her sitting there so peacefully took away his breath, he felt like he was dreaming, "Yeh sapna hi hai, warna itni khoobsurat koi ho hi nahi sakti" he thought to himself. He went closer praying that this dream never ends. He sat down next to her not daring to touch her otherwise this moment would be gone.

The thought of Armaan standing there with Maya and the other man appeared in Ridz's mind and she closed her eyes tighter trying to push the thought away, the pain filled her eyes and with the squeeze of the eyes fresh hot tears came running down her cheeks.

Armaan caught the teardrops and cried in his heart from the pain that he could see clealy on Ridz face; he couldn't help himself and slowly raised his hand to wipe the tears away.

As soon as Ridz felt someone wipe her tears she opened her eyes to see Armaan's face looking really upset and worried.

R: "Armaan" she whispered

Ridz couldn't believe her eyes, "Tum yaha kui ayeho" still in a whisper

A: "tum kui roh kui rahe ho" he asked in a worried tone completely ignoring her question

Ridz hurriedly wiped her tears "Woh.. mein... mujhe hay fever hai, mein roh nahi rahi ti"

A: "Jhooth... batao tum roh kui rahi ti" he asked again in silently more stern voice with his hand cupping the side of her face

Ridz moved her face so that he was no longer touching her, although she longed for his touch she knew that what she was feeling was wrong and she had to stop it. But why was he here?

R: "Mein bas aapni dost ki judai ki vaja se tori upset ti, aur kuch nahi" she looked down saying this, Armaan's intense gaze was making her feel slightly uncomfortable

R: "Tum... I mean aap yaha?"

A: "Tum, is fine. Woh mein actually tumhe andaar lene ayeta"

Ridz looked confused

A: "ahaha, woh actually Krishna kehrahi hai ki jab takh tum uski saath andhar nah ho, tab takh woh Shiv se sagai nahi karegi, aur poor Shiv toh yeh sun khar aab pareshan ho gaye hai. Saabh tumhe andhar doondh rahe hai"

R: "Oh, haha, sorry toh phir chale andhar"

A: "hmmm"

They both got up and started walking back in,

R: "Minnie bohot cute hai, hai na"

A: "Ha, bare pyari se baachi hai" and he sighs

R: "kya hua?"

A: "Nahi bas woh 1 hafte baadh jarihai isliye tori upset hu, mein usse miss karunga"

R: "Jahrahi hai matlab?" she turned to look at him "Kaha?"

A: "Apne ghar"

R: "Yaane woh tumhare saath nahi rehti?" Ridz was really confused now

A: "No, woh uski parents, Maya di aur jiju ki saath rehti hai"

R: "What, you mean, mera matlab woh tumhari nethi nahi hai"

Armaan froze, "Excuse me, kya kaha tumne"

R: "Er... Sorry, mujhe laga ki... woh... erm"

Armaan was now laughing like crazy

A: "Tumhe laga ki, hahahha... ki.... oh my god, mein dikhne mein itni old laghta hu kya? Woh meri neice hai"

Ridz felt really embarrassed now, she was turning red with embarrassment while Armaan just stood there holding his sides trying to control his laughter.

Noticing Ridz blushing so much Armaan calmed down, "Andhar chale aab, mujhe apni beth se milna hai" he said with a grin on his face.
