"You want to meet me but for what?" she was looking confused

……………..


"Ok, I will meet you in caf…..8…ok"


Smriti put the phone down and was confused as why she wanna meet her


"Stop messing Smriti……………you will get to know all about this soon….so stop thinking" She control herself and turn as she smell something burn………looking as the steam coming out from the pan and run towards it

Shashank turn to her and asked looking excitedly as her


"What?"


"I received a call from Maliks……..you have read about the boy who topped in L.L.B"


"Ya, but what about that?" Shashank ask getting confused


"His parents want our Riddhima for him" A bright smile formed on Shashank lips hearing that such a talented boy's parents want her daughter


"But why?" a straight question come out from him


"Actually, armaan knew riddhima from the college as he was her senior……..and the boy loves her a lot……..till now, waiting for her" Smriti got a bit proudy with this but it was positive


"And?"

 

"The Maliks just want him to settle down now as its high time for him………..Armaan never bring up the topic of getting married just as Riddhima…….so his parents decided to let it remain surprise for him till he started he is done with his practice"


"but he almost need a year……." Shashank said thoughtfully


"Yes, but till done, Riddhima will be done with her finals……….and so be ready for marriage.."


Shashank think for a minute and ask


"So, what you think?" Smriti take out Armaan snap from her purse and give it to Shashank


"I think, he is the best boy and best partner for her" Smriti and Shashank look at the snap and Shashank said with a little smile


"I think you are right" Smriti smile widen and she hug Shashank

Soon, Shanshank's first son-in-law Atul too joined them and armaan and atul made a good rapport with each other


"So whats your plans beta?" Shashank ask making armaan getting some attention


"I am thinking to join Mr.Alluwalia as an assistant first so i can get some more knowledge as a public Prosecutor……." Armaan said sweetly

"Don't worry………mama told me that the family is really sweet and I saw the picture, the boy is really handsome………" she smiled and lowered towards her ear and said


"More than your Jiju" Riddhima blush at this…………she was totally unaware of what family it is, what the name of the boy…………its going to come a bigger shock for her as of what armaan got


Hearing the knock on the door………..the girls turned towards the door to find atul entered with a brightest smile


"Hey honey, how are you?" Atul greeted Anjali as he went to his office for an urgent work and straightly come here to join them


"I am fine" atul place a light kiss on her cheek while riddhima smile seeing how happy her sister is


"Hey beautiful" Atul said patting her head……

"jiju, what do you think about him?" Riddhima said with a scared tone


"He is a sweet man Riddhima and moreover that……..Mom and dad really liked him a lot…..i m sure he is the best one for you" Riddhima felt a bit relieved as she trust atul and anjali but guys………….its about her life


Atul and anjali took her down the stairs carefully…………Riddhima was keep looking at the floor and so was armaan……….he can feel her presence and can feel the calmness, her presence give to his heart…..he smiled to himself as Juhi made her sit beside her


And then, hiding his gaze from others……….he look up to have a good look of her and….he gasped


She was looking stunning in her shocking pink shalwar suit………..and the way she has covered her head with stole, it was just adding charms to her beauty…..Riddhima look up to find his gaze on her and left stunned seeing armaan there……….looking more handsome than that night…….she was speechless….


"Mom, don't you think, they should talk to each other in some privacy" Anjali clearly see that expression on Riddhima's face and take it as if she just need to get confirmed with the proposal………and that could only happen if they talk in privacy


"Sure, Anjali………Juhi, what would you say" Smriti ask Juhi and she smiled as she exactly know whats on armaan mind so said yes


Anjali lead them to the terrace as Atul and minnee too join her


"Minnee, do you want to see some doll………..come I show you" Anjali took away minnee and giving a wink to Riddhima, Atul to left


Riddhima turn to other side from armaan and armaan started


"Riddhima" she felt her name so sweet from him……..she don't know the reason but she did feel that


"Armaan, I don't know what to say" armaan smiled at her statement as its exactly what, he is feeling but its today or never……….he knew………he will never get this chance again if he didn't avail this now and he is not going to loose it today like before


"Riddhima, I need to confess something…………"Riddhima hold her breath as don't know whats coming up


"I love you Riddhima" he said that and felt relieved…………but for her, he made her stunned…..she turn to look at her as a small whisper come out from her "Armaan"


looking at her, armaan said that


"Yes, its true……….i love you………and I loved you before too………..But never get a chance…..i want to tell you this on Prom Night when you asked to accompany you there….i thought you too……" he stop in mid-way and after a while again started…but in this gap, Riddhima lived a life and died thousands


"but I think, that was destined to happen…………after when I want to be there console you, help you getting out from that situation………you left the city….and I never get chance to tell you this………." He looks up at her who was gazing at the floor

 

"I didn't know that the girl my parents choose is you…….till I reached here and saw your house……" Riddhima keep silent but it was crushing armaan


"Riddhima, I am not forcing you into any thing………..if you want time, you can get it…..if you want to say No……I am completely ok with it and I promise……..no one will force you ever" Riddhima look up at him and found the love, she always searched for herself in his eyes………but she was disappointed with herself that she can't reciprocate his love the same way


"Say something" armaan said slowly…….pleading her


Riddhima smile and said "You have changed armaan…………you are not like the old armaan wearing lenses, and those sleeveless shirts with ruffed jeans……" armaan smiled at this


"Oh, you noticed…………I thought that innocent traditional girl don't look at the cool guys like us and that's why I thought, to change my style………..may be someone will noticed me" Armaan said cheerfully


"You look nice in these specs………..you have completely changed you funky look that I almost didn't recognized you…" Riddhima said as a smile broke on her face


"What I was, it was for a girl……….and trust me……… what I am, is still for the same girl if she just think I am capable enough to keep her happy for life" Armaan said it in serious yet sweet tone that left Riddhima mesmerized


"I will wait for your answer" Armaan left a happy yet serious Riddhima behind with the power of his love
