Part 21& 22 : Anjaan Rishtey

part 21

Armaan had found some time alone to clear his mind. After leaving the hospital he went home and relaxed after a long time. He hadn't had any time since Riddhima had left him, the tension built up, the pressure of beginning internship, leaving home, coming to Mumbai, and seeing Riddhima's look alike in front of him...was all too much for him. This was the first day he was all on his own and had time to sleep. After resting and taking all negative thoughts out of his mind he decided to leave to go back to Sanjeevani for his night duty. He grabbed his bag which he had thrown onto the sofa when he entered and left the apartment. He had just walked down the street which was unusually quiet thinking to himself when he saw a massive gathering up ahead.

Armaan: What's happening there? - he thought out loud - Maybe an accident...I better go and check it out

After pushing through the crowd he found himself looking at a lot of familiar faces, some injured, some trying to help the injured and two girls looking petrified.

part 53 : Arman aur Riddhima ka safar

Over a few weeks Riddhima busied herself in her project; now having a sewing machine at home getting her work sorted was so much easier; before starting her work she would make a daily plan on what needed to be completed by the end of the day and she would challenge herself to complete her target and feel proud of herself when she had. Laura had noticed this during one session and made Riddhima an example to all the others in the class; which once again triggered Jia to mess around with Riddhima's image but for the first time she had failed as Riddhima was completely focused with her work and made sure nothing could be messed up under any circumstances.

She had completed her two projects and was at the point of finishing her third project. She had hand stitched the final bit of surface decorations on the bottom of the dress; checked it out on the mannequin then took it off making her way to the ironing board to iron it when Tom walked into the room and called for everyone's attention. Riddhima folded her dress neatly and put it away in her bag before moving to the work top in the centre of the room where everyone else was gathered to listen to Tom. Once everyone was there and settled he spoke up with a smile on his face.

“Better than anything else” Rahul said taking her into another kiss.

As they watch sunset siting with each other in balcony enjoying their company in snowfall having drinks together. Their honeymoon was going the best they can ever think off. Being prankster they both don’t miss a chance to kept other in problem then rescue at the peak time.

“Rahul tujhe kya lagta hai?” Muskaan asked looking towards the sun.

“Kis bare me Muski?” Rahul asked squeezing her into his arms.

Muskaan kept silent being lost and he get the hint that she was serious in that moment.

He turn her face towards himself and she reluctantly tore the gaze from sun and looked into his eyes.

A few days later and the interns were deeply involved in their work along with some messing around and getting to know each other better. It was their third day in Sanjeevani; all nine interns were standing silently by the nurse station waiting to hear their duties for the day.

Keerti: Good Morning interns…good to see that you are all here on time – looking mainly at Atul – please make this a habit…now duties… - looks down at her clipboard – Dr. Rahul and Dr. Sapna ICU with patient Rajat, he will be moved into special ward today

Half an hour later he walked into the building and as he walked up to the reception desk he met Rahul.

Armaan: Hey...

Rahul: Hi...Vikram Sir wants to see us in his office... – they start walking - ...he said the moment you arrive we should both meet him in his office...I just hope it's nothing serious...

Armaan: Let's see... – knocking on the door and putting his head around it – ...may we come in sir...

Vikram: Come in...

They walked in and settled down opposite him; Rahul and Armaan sat quietly as he finished typing up something on his laptop; he sat back in his chair five minutes later and looked closely at each of them...

Part 17

It's the first day at Sanjeevani. Armaan, Rahul, Abhi, Muskaan and Nikki left their apartment together bright and early ready for their first day at Sanjeevani. They were all chatting excitedly on the way to the hospital except for Abhi and Muskaan who had argued all the way from the minute they stepped out of their rooms.

They had just reached the hospital and the rest of the gang was so fed up of hearing Abhi and Muskaan's bickering. They walked towards the entrance and they had started off once again. They stood by the door glaring at each other with deadly looks.

Muskaan: I was here first - to Abhi - Move out of the way

Abhi: No I was here first - pushing her away from the door

Muskaan: No me!

part 51 : Arman aur Riddhima ka safar

It was now the Christmas holidays and everyone had a week off work. Armaan and Rahul and most of the workers at Khushi Events were given a week holiday to relax as they had worked extremely hard throughout the year, Armaan and Rahul had worked continuously from the time they had started back in September and had really progressed during this time; Vikram and Shashank were really impressed with their work.

The girls had three weeks holiday and were due to go back to the Institute after the New Year. They used this time to rest and spend time with their families as well as go out and have some fun dragging Nikita along with them wherever they went as per their plan to bring her back to normal. For some reason it was not working but they decided that they would keep trying and not give up until she was back to her normal self; at the moment it seemed impossible. They spent their time as a gang going around here and there; shopping, movies, chilling at each other's homes getting up to mischief and just enjoyed being together.

“Armaan” Riddhima stood at once”.

“Yeah baby” he looked back at her.

“I love your dimples” she touched it as his dimples get deeper.

She move towards the lift giving him time to register her words she said the same previous night.

Armaan stood shocked keeping his palm over his dimples then look at her as his eyes moved out of the socket.

The five interns walked down the road together to their new home. All chatting excitedly, some trying to get to know each other and some arguing like cats and dogs.

Muskaan: I can't believe I'm stuck here with you!!

Abhi: And I'm jumping for joy!! - sarcastically - Crazy girl!!

Muskaan: You... - stopping in her tracks and grabbed his collar

Abhi: Hey watch it!

Before each of them could say something they were stopped by the others.

Rahul: Guys that's enough!!! We're here...

They stopped and looked up to the place there were going to be living in from now on. It was a big bungalow, from the outside it looked just like a normal house, cute and made with lots of love.

part 50 : Arman aur Riddhima ka safar

The next day Riddhima woke up early; even though it was a weekend but she promised herself that she would not let anything bother her or come in her way of her ambitions. She printed off her work again and started on the next assignment thinking of getting ahead of her work not letting her real talent to be ruined by an immature student. It was one o'clock in the afternoon when she had finished her assignment completely from beginning to end within three and a half hours and as she printed it off she smiled. There was a knock on her door and she turned to see Padma walking in...

Padma: Riddhima...what are you doing? – concerned- ...I haven't seen you all day...did you even have your breakfast...

Ridz: - smiling – Haan mama...I had my breakfast very early this morning and I started with my work...I've just finished...

Padma: I was beginning to wonder what was happening...

part 13

(repeat of last scene)

Armaan felt a little left out because everyone knew each other but before his thoughts could form any more someone else had just walked into the conference room…she wore a short skirt and a low cut top with lots of jewellery and makeup.

Girl: Dii Tum aise kaise kar sakte ho?

Anjali: Oh no!!! – turns around to look at her little sister… - I'm sorry…

Armaan looks at her and felt like he's just been slapped in the face...

…The girl walks into the room full of staring eyes. She gives a sweet but fleeting smile to all the interns before walking over to Anji…

part 49 : Arman aur Riddhima ka safar

It was now two weeks into work for most of the gang; Armaan and Rahul were well into it and had finally settled in. Armaan had just completed going through the files of old events which the company had organised and decided to take his break. He placed the file back onto the shelf and walked out of the room coming into contact with a couple of people in the corridor as he made his way to the cafeteria. As he neared the double doors he felt a strong hand on his shoulder making him turn to see Rahul standing there.

Rahul: Hi...

Armaan: Hey dude...where've you been?

Rahul: Busy man...

Armaan: I can see that...I haven't seen you around for a while...I was beginning to wonder... – they settled down at the table

Rahul: I'm working on my first project with Atul Bhai...was at the venue all of yesterday...need to go and set up later on today...

Looking at her smiling face over his chest he murmured “What have you done Riddhima, ab kaise sou mai” he sighed looking out of the window from where moon was looking at him with a smile.

Rahul and Muskaan were enjoying their honeymoon to the fullest with little bit fighting, more of roaming around, site seeing and most of romance. They were not shy to show their love for each other neither their bickering.

Their adventure level was a bit higher as they decided to meet each other as stranger in Switzerland and from the first meeting their love story start again which somehow goes like:

**Somewhere in Patiala**

A day after her marriage was cancelled Muskaan had decided that enough was enough. She could not go through with another broken proposal. She tiptoed around her room like a thief gathering all her necessary belongings and threw them into a bag on her bed. When she had made sure that she had everything that she would need she took one last look around her room before.

Muskaan: Chal Muskaan…run away before anyone wakes… - looks up at the ceiling - oh God help me!

She climbs out of the window and down the pipe with her bag on her back. When she had reached the bottom of the pipe safely she sneaked around the garden and made it for the front gate, taking one last look at her house…

Muskaan: Yeeeh Bye Everyone!! See you all later - whispering

It was now one week since the gang had received their results and decided on how they would begin their careers, they were all excited to begin their new working lives. Abhi had settled in the US and had rang them all to tell them how great it was and that he would be starting work within a week which was the same time as the gang. Armaan and Rahul had their inductions and were also due to start work on the same day as the girls were starting TFI. But Armaan promised that he would definitely be giving them a lift to the institute and as promised he arrived right on time at the Gupta's place while Riddhima was having her breakfast.

Shashank: I'll get that... – getting up from the table

Padma: - looking back at Riddhima - ...Riddhima will be don't need to be that have been there already and you know what it's like...

He walked around the bench as everyone stood up, he made his way towards Nikita and stood two inches in front of her, he bent his head down to look into her eyes.

Abhi: May I congratulate you…I.T…U…UNGRADED!

Everyone stood in shock watching Abhi's behavior towards Nikita. A single tear fell from her eyes onto her cheek and Abhi smiled widely at her in this condition…

Abhi: F.A.I.L.U.R.E…Failure…

 Rahul: C'mon Abhi that is enough...stop it now...

Ridz: Abhi why are you being so mean?

os : Infinity in the palm of your hands - Prelude: Meeting and Passing

She was one of those students in the school who hung around the campus and its buildings even after school was officially closed for the day. While some pursued sports and other club related activities, she spent most of the afternoon in the library looking up old magazines and books and at times gazing out of the window. She helped the librarian by shelving books left by students haphazardly on reading tables and sometimes even performing an audit of the library on her own. She was easily favored by the librarian thus giving her a sense of independence and belonging in the school library. 

They used to be best friends in middle school. It was those times when moms didn't mind when kids jumped in puddles of rainwater or got their hands sullied by building bridges in sand. Moms weren't germ phobic and kids spent most afternoons goofing off - chasing butterflies, playing in brooks and listening to stories told by the old man at the light house. Best friends were made when two kids shared a pencil or helped one another during recess. Enmity existed for all of a week and the children generally made up with a candy or roadside cheap ice-cream. Simplicity existed in innocent minds uncorrupted by knowledge.
