Armaan are you here? can you please answer the door
Ok Muskaan ,gimme 2 min......
thats the intro guys
I know u must be thinking if on i'm on some update drugs this week
I 'm thinking the same
again this is a mini fic with a max of 7 parts
i'm quite enjoying this style of writing
since i dont keep u guys waiting
" Nikki ,u're a nut alrite!" Riddhima shot glares at her best friend ...
"Well takes one to know one"&amp;nbsp;Nikki knew how to tackle her friend's supposed accusations
" u seriously think I'm gonna start chattingto some random guy just coz he's YOUR good friend?" Riddhima found the whole idea bizarre
"Ridz ! get this right ok...u can't cut yourself off from the world,especially from the people who love and care about u"
"Oh plz Niks, don't even try to lay that guilt trip on me,u know I'd never fall for it..." Riddhima was stubborn as ever
"Ridz,why dont u give it a try yar, nothing else seems to have worked until now...I mean look at you... u look a complete emotional wreck..."Nikki tried to talk Riddhima out of her misery
"Niks, I really appreciate your efforts yar,but I think for now,its best I stay away from the deceptive male species,&amp;nbsp;they are all the same..." her tone was full of remorse
think its the best way to forget the bitter past and why blame the
entire male population ? ...I'm sorry but I dont agree with your theory
,not all guys are the same yar.....Abhi is history ,forget him and move on...he was a total loser and trust me when I say ,he aint even worth a thought" Nikki spilled her anger hoping it might make her feel better
come with a load of trouble and pain Nikki and I can't afford to carry
this extra weight to London... I'd rather be tagged happily single than
stressfully committed...I need to have a clear mind before I move
to a new place and thats the reason I'm&amp;nbsp; trying to dump all that mess
here to start afresh... "
The girls took a long pause to ponder over each others&amp;nbsp; defensive thoughts, Riddhima looked a lot more disturbed than before,a light girly chat had turned into an awful dip into the past.....
"Ridz I'm sorry , I didn't mean to remind you of him...I
know forgetting Abhi wont come easy and I'm not asking you to get into
a new relationship, just a casual online chat is all I 'm suggesting
and its not like u gonna be seeing each other, make it a fun
thing....KD has similar interests to you,may be u could kick off chatting of those,Cheer up now and and Enjoy!!!...."
Riddhima waved as Nikki swerved her moped around to the exit of the parking area ...
walking back up to her apartment Ridz thought of all that had happened in the past month
It was at the farewell party that Ridz had caught Abhimanyu red handed....he was found snogging some girl in the alleyway....a
few good friends had tried to warn her of his ill doings,but she had
ignored them thinking they must be mistaken,Abhi could never be
unfaithful she thought he loved her and just her ..... and ever since her hopes were shattered , she kept aloof from her friends and believed in never trusting anyone again.....
~~~~~~~~ "I can't believe ,I'm actually doing this Niks,this KD guy better be fun,or else you're dead" said Riddhima while switching on her laptop to
enter the vast world of IMing....she was quite a regular net user, but
never had she bothered with online chat...most of her friends lived
close and the ones far were only a phone call away....This would be
a new experience for her and she was desperate to rid herself of the
depression that followed the nasty break up .....
'Create a username ' prompted the screen"hmmm " she thought of it rolling her eyes dramatically'qt4eva' she smiled at herself and blamed her stray mind to come up with the cheesiest name ever'Create a password' popped up the next prompt'ihateme' she typed and retyped to confirm 'you are connected' was the final message...
searching for the add friends tab,she dialled Nikki to ask for KD's userid"give me yours and I'll pass it onto KD"&amp;nbsp; Nikki jumped in excitement"No I can't !" screamed Riddhima"why not? I bet its a cheesy one,hehe " teased Nikki"yeah it is ,happy? " sniffed Ridz
"killer dude ! ..." chuckled Nikki"what? ....Niks plz I can't chat to a guy to calls himself that!!!...." her expression meant incredulous...." Ridz,babes I'm sure u came up with something similar, come on now its only a silly userid,
why u fussing already?""ok fine ,stop killing me for it.....
aarrghhh,I just so hate u for putting me thru this Niks "
"yeh love u too Ridzie byeeeeee! ...have fun"
"Bye!" Riddhima hung up and mumbled
"this guy better be all that u say he is....
so mr.killer dude,bring it on............."

please leave a short comment or click the thank you button
(prefer the comments long or short)
cheers Kratz and nij
love u all
was Armaan's girlfriend of high school ,every other guy at college
loved Maya and she&amp;nbsp; loved only Armaan ,well that is what he
thought.Maya was a rich spoilt brat who once set eyes on something and
the thing was hers,she treated Armaan the same and soon made him a
victim...Armaan was a complete fool to have mistaken it for love , she
never had loved him really...
yeah I am new to it"Oh damn,I'm late ! she probably is waiting online,how the hell will I get home in 15 minutes...I'm
sorry QT...." pouted Armaan looking at the mad traffic in front of him.
Riddhima and him had been chatting online for the past week ,and to
their surprise they were loving the 'chat therapy' idea. courtesy Nikki.... The two had
agreed on not asking each other about their personal lives ,even their
real names would always remain a secret...they would chat for a few
hours daily without fail and delay. Abhi and Maya were&amp;nbsp; now almost unknown
to them,what they loved and enjoyed was the chat they had everyday....
have you been doing this for long?
oh God! why do I sound like a geek???
yep ,i've been chattin since da chat was invented lolz
yeh right! that wasn't even funny dude,wats wid u today???
oh before we chat of anything else, can we actually set a suitable time for the chat everyday?
Ridz,u kidding u actually wanna chat to this guy on a regular everyday routine? what made u ask him that ?
is dis time around 5 ish ok wid u?
it u've lost it Armaan,setting up a chat timetable? thats almost
against the rules of chatting,hang on ,do we even have any rules? god
this QT girl's making me think weird stuff
yeah 5 is perfect,see you tomorrow
nice chatting to you
thank god I was able to cut it short
u 2 bye!
phew! glad i'm done,any more 'chatting' would have been torture
no Ridzie ! this traffic looks practically immobile,yar what would KD
think ,its 4.47 and getting home by 5 looks next to impossible,what now
Ridzie,think,do something quick !!!" Riddhima cursed herself to have
left late from Nikki's house...KD and the chat was all she she cud think
of now.... "yayyy! " she screamed on spotting an internet cafe, immediately she
scooted her two wheeler out of the madness and parked it outside the
Rushing into the&amp;nbsp; place,she searched for a vacant
bay and ran to grab it before anyone else could..."I'm sorry miss,u'll
have to wait for the next available system,I stepped in here first and
its ME who's gonna use this pc..." Armaan was in no mood for courtesy"
excuse me Mr.no basic manners! I stepped in here way before u did, so
kindly leave before I get real mad!!!" shouted Riddhima unintentionally...
miss ,plz ! I request ,I need to send an e-mail urgently,even a little
delay can be disappointing...." Armaan thought of trying the sweet way
this time" aha,request? nice, but I'm sorry my work is equally
urgent and important " Riddhima's tone was invincible...she quickly sat
herself on the chair and grabbed the mouse to get connectedArmaan
was about to pull her out of the seat when the cafe chap advised him of
the another available pc... he stormed out of the bay&amp;nbsp; thinking his
priority was QT for now and this stubborn idiot he'd deal with later
... Racing into the adjacent bay , he panted and typed in his username
I'm ever so sorry KD,I tried to get online on time ,but got caught up wid something
popped up the offline message when Armaan finally managed to log in...
hope u're not mad at me,
c u soon and miss u :(.....
whinging aloud he typed a reply and geared up to blast the girl who was responsible for the missed chat of the day...unfortunately she had left ...
Another week went by and their bond grew stronger...they made up for the missed chat , by chatting double the time on the following evening&amp;nbsp;As days passed they felt as though they could share everything with each otherfavourite subject ,sport,colour,car and the rest ,they shared common interests in almost everythingjust busy with a few things that need to be done before I start uni&amp;nbsp;I think I should tell him of my move
even the place they had chosen for further studies...but for some strange reason both preferred keeping this a secret and never wanted to tell each other of their move to London
howz it going?
shall i tell her i'm leaving the country next week?
when do u start uni?
wonder what uni she's gonna be at ,wish it could be the same as mine
come on dude ,she aint gonna be coming London with u
as if its gonna be the same as u Ridz
why ask when u know the terms start at a different time&amp;nbsp; here
thats cool I start in Sept too
&amp;nbsp;is that a coincidence or she moving abroad like me?
oh btw I'll be away on thurs nxt wk

love u all
It was early morning around 4am thursday,Armaan itched to unpack his
laptop while the rest of the luggage got loaded in the car,his flight was
scheduled for a 9.50am departure .... ~~~~~~~~
He zipped open the bag quickly and switched the system on,tapping his
fingers as the system booted up he heard his mum standing&amp;nbsp; at the door,
sobbing incessantly ...
He shut the lid of laptop immediately and ran
to quiet her down...
it took him longer than anticipated and&amp;nbsp; soon
it was time to leave....
zipping back the laptop bag , he reluctantly buried
the thought of leaving her a last offline message ...
On the plane his mind was filled with thoughts of her,he was amazed at
how a virtual relationship could effect&amp;nbsp; in a way so intense, the
untangled bond had grown into an obsessive addiction in a short period
the journey appeared never ending,the wait so long that he felt
suffocated by the surroundings,to ease his mind off he pulled out the
printed copy of his e-ticket ,turned overleaf and wrote
'An ode to my
It was friday, the day Riddhima was to fly to London, a day seemed an eternity between the chat
"Mum thats enough plz..." Riddhima stood by the little temple while her mum chanted some mantras
"dad plz can u stop mum before she seeks protection from all the dieties of the world?"
" be quiet Riddhi , and ask for forgiveness,I dont want u to utter anything unauspicious before u fly..."
" mum!!! " she screamed ,then tilting her head towards dad she whispered "I do feel sorry for u,good luck when I'm gone..."
Smiling cheekily ,she hugged her mum for a final goodbye and then ran
through the checklist before leaving for the airport...the laptop being
her favourite possesion of recent times,she held its bag tight and
close, a sense of comfort swelled in her with the machine so near ,as
if she held HIM captive in there...playing her fingers on the bag she
wished for a safe and super quick flight....
As the aircraft circled in the air,unable to land coz of traffic,she
looked out of the window at the tiny houses and roads .... A sudden
feeling of resentment rushed to her head as she thought to herself,how
far have I come KD.... far away from u.....
the circling motion made her
dizzy and she shut her eyes to think of him, sketch a portrait of her
dream guy,was he the one? and more important ,was she falling in love
A hopeful smile creased her face and she jolted out of her thoughts as the wheels screeched on landing...
Off loading her luggage from the conveyer belt,she inhaled a deep breath
and pushed the trolley towards the exit...
While passing through the arrivals
lounge she encountered a familiar face, trusting her inkling she decided to approach him....surprised and
confused of how she knew this person in a place unknown ,she waited for
him to finish his conversation over the phone
"Muskaan! I mean bhabi yar ,I've been waiting forever,where are u guys?"after a short pause to hear the person speak at the other end ,he continued " yes I've collected my luggage that didnt come with me yesterday and no they didnt hassle me at all ..." another quick pause and he
added " arey haan,they did apologize for the mix up in handling and I
couldnt care less even if they didnt,we've got the missing baggage ,end
of story,now plz will u instruct me of your cars location?...how long
does it take to drive out of a parking lot yar.....ok bye!..."
He turned around and gripped the handle of the suitcase to load it onto
a trolley...she couldn't believe her eyes when he revealed his complete face&amp;nbsp; ,it was him!&amp;nbsp; the guy she bumped into at the internet cafe ,
the one she cursed and blamed,the one who made her miss her daily chat
with her KD.....
He was equally shocked to see her there...he believed in god but now
his faith turned strong coz he had wished for an opportunity to see her
again...to curse and blame her ,to blast her for the missed chat that
"Ridzie!!!!!" screamed Anjali
tearing away from his shocking gaze she smiled at Anjali and hugged her tight
"where's jeej? and God! you've lost wait di,mum would have a fit if she saw u like this..."&amp;nbsp;
" dont u dare tell mum, I was clever enough to click loads of pictures
of a healthy me and everytime mum asks for a pic,I send her one of
those...hehe" grinned Anjali at her self praise
"wow di, now I know why jeej is the best"
"huh?"&amp;nbsp; Anjali looked puzzled
"oh come on,u were never that clever before hahaha...."&amp;nbsp; Riddhima loved teasing her sister
although they were a few years apart in age,their bond was close and
when Atul joined the family,Riddhima had found a great friend and a
caring brother in him...
As the two waited after pressing the call button for the elevator ,
Riddhima searched for the guy she needed to settle scores with
"what or who are u looking for Ridzie?didn't I tell you Atul is waiting in the pick up lane outside?&amp;nbsp; "
" yeah di ,u dis tell me,but I'm looking for his guy "
" what guy Ridz? don't tell me u've made friends already..."
" no di,he's a foe not a friend!" she looked around everywhere
" Ridz ,u are complicated,now forget him and lets go!"
Anjali steered the trolley and pulled Riddhima into the
elevator,ceasing her last chance to find the guy who owed her a big
time apology,if fate was to be trusted ,she had a feeling of finding
him again,someday ,somewhere.....
Locking the car behind him,Atul&amp;nbsp; wheeled the suitcase towards the house
while Riddhima gave a thorough look to the house from outside... ~~~~~~~~
" Hi Anjali ...." ringed a voice from the other side of the fence along the driveway
" hey Muskaan! how are you? ...." replied Anjali cheerfully
" meet my sister Riddhima ,just arrived from India today...." Anjali introduced Riddhima to her neighbour ...
" Hi Riddhima,nice to meet you ,do come to my house someday,I make good coffee hehehe " laughed Muskaan
" yeh sure,but I dont drink coffee..." Anjali looked at Riddhima
hopelessly,her sister can never change she thought,always blatant and
abrupt,never a sweet talker.....
" koi na ,we'll just have some biscuits if u like or even better,we'll have some aloo ke parathe, what say? ..." she is little weird and over friendly thought Riddhima
" Muskaan! I mean bhabi..." yelled someone from behind the boot of the car
" oh sorry,thats my devar ,as in brother in law,arrived yesterday from India just like you...
part 3 guys
hope u liked it
I enjoyed writing this part for some reason

please do leave comments if u can
Happy AR confession Anniversary
love you all
Ja rahe hain hum...bahut door...tumhe chod ke
Aayenge hum laut kar..ek din..shayad
Jab aayein aap saamne..badhua...dua ban gai
Rab kare....yeh pal..lamhe...bas hamesha yuhi rahe!!
she scrunched up the piece of paper when Atul turned to water the
plants by her side. It had now been two days since they last had their
chat, this was a little something she had written on the way to the airport
when her mum was rambling away endlessly.&amp;nbsp; An unknown part of
heart ached to leave the country where there could have been a
possibility to meet HIM ....her decision to study abroad was
spontaneous,she would never have left India if it weren't for the
brutal truth of her break up with Abhi,the grief he left her with could
only be erased if she moved to a new place she believed ,but then KD
happened ........Listening to her jeej sing and enjoy the
morning with his beloved shrubs , she dared to unfold the tiny piece of
paper again ..... " miss you !" she muttered smiling inwardly...she
could feel his presence around, a sense of longing , a feeling called
love? 'nah! dont even think about it Ridz ...' she smiled in self
tease ..."Hmmmm ,hmmmm hmmmmm" Atul noticed her on the sly,she
looked insane chatting and smiling to herself..... sighing with self
pity ,he wished for guidance and patience from God to handle another
nutter in the house ....."Ridzie.....!!!" screamed Anjali from the window of her room upstairs "Di
yar,why're u screaming ?,this aint India alright " Riddhima looked up
to Anjali from the garden...with the sun glaring in her eyes she
covered her eyes and asked " what is it?"" Ridz its mumma on the phone , she wants u to come online and show yourself on the webcam..." "
yar mumma, I couldnt have possibly lost weight in the 24 hours I've
been away from you ........" softly she moaned and made her way into
the house through the patio door..." Julieeee! aaaaa I love you....aaaa aaaa" sang Atul with a passion,gently holding the leaves of his favourite plant..." hehehe " he heard a mild chuckle , looking around he found nothing suspicious and returned to his watering....""
hehehehe shhhhhh...." he heard it again...turning off the nozzle on the
hose pipe he listened carefully..... there was complete silence apart
from the faint sound of traffic on the other side of the house ... "Armaan! ...Muskaan.....what are u two doing over there?""
oh crap! ..." Armaan raced to the opposite side of the garden and
resumed his work-out while Muskaan pretended dumb and started humming
.....digging his fingers into the pockets of his jeans,Rahul walked
towards Muskaan with a suspicious look " what was that all about?" he
interrogated with an accusing expression
"oye Rahul,why do always suspect me? huh? " Rahul gave her a fishy
stare as she cleverly moved him away from the fence .... " were u two
upto something silly again?" Armaan faked being engrossed with his
muscle building , only with his ears glued to the convo between his
bhai and bhabi.... " Muskaan,will you two ever grow up? juvenile as
ever u two!...." cursed Rahul and marched back into the house...." dam!
is he really annoyed Muskaan? I mean bhabi ....???"
" Armaan yar,don't u know your brother ? just give him about 5 minutes
and he'll be back and might even apologise heeheeeheee...." Muskaan
laughed in her trademark squeaky style
" God,u havent changed at all..." Armaan giggled with her.....the sweet
and pure bond they shared was next to none.....Armaan was surprised
when Rahul ,the shy introvert had confessed his love for the crazy and
loud Muskaan, his closest buddy of all times....'Opposites attract'
this might have been the case with them he assumed and when it came to
Rahul and Muskaan moving to London a couple years ago, Armaan detested
the thought of parting with her more than his own brother.....such was
their relation filled with fun and laughter.....
" oye,lets go back to the sneak peek " whispered Muskaan tugging onto Armaan's arm
" haha !the girl next door eh? ......"
"bye mum,I gotto go help di with lunch and don't worry ok? ,I'll come
online tomorrow !" hanging up the call , Riddhima heaved a groan of
despair looking at the weary hands of the clock ...She had unpacked all
her stuff and even organised her new closet but still had time to wait
for the clock to strike 5... she even turned down the offer to go out
shopping blaming it on her fatique .... what she needed now was a
Anjali disliked any kind of interruption when cooking, she had always
been that way, suits me fine thought Riddhima and switched on the tele
and picked up a magazine off the coffee table... reading through a
story about internet dating,she grinned with glee....Atul passed by and
spotted her smiling again, a few doubts crept up his mind but he gave
them a miss .....
" raat nau baje Bharat me aur sham sade aath baje UK aur USA me " off
went the advert for a drama series... "damn!!!!!!! "totally gutted with herself , she
counted the time difference on her fingers like crazy....Atul ,anxious with her
strange behaviour asked " Ridz,are u okay? "
"yeh jeej,just working out the time in India,is it a difference of 5.5 hours? " she asked hastily
" no its 4.5 in summer ..." replied Atul and that made her scream and rush up to her room
"God help me! " prayed Atul again ,the intensity of insanity in the two sisters now seemed a challenge he had to accept.....
"Damn,he must be waiting for ages !!!!! plz plz plz God ,make him stay atleast today...."
she wished as the system loaded and it made her think of the tiff she had with
Armaan in India, it was the worst of all shocks to find him in London
as it is and to top it all he had be her neighbor??? she had already
devised a plan to teach him a lesson and only waited for the right
opportunity....her face turned red with anger when she recollected his
pathetic reaction on finding out the fact of them being neighbors,how
could he have said that???......
she roared with frustration to think of the way he said "Oh no,not u
again !!!! " his expression full of regret and the tone vexed,damn!
what must have di and jeej thought of me then...and that Muskaan ,the
way she giggled on knowing that we knew each other from before ? she's
one of the rare weird species ,him being another one of the same, wonder
what the brother is like,would'nt be much surprised if he isnt any different.....
Signing into the chat ,she narrowed her eyes and peeked through the holes between her
fingers covering her face.....Ping Ping Ping ! flowed in the messages
from the other end....
Ecstatic to see his 'Available' status she cheered with delight and grabbed the pillow and hugged it tight.....
how hve u been?
missed u loads!!!!
ping me when u're here
her excitement was evident
how r u?

"Ridzie,can u fetch my mobile from my room and make it quick ,I'm waiting in the car....."A
week old in London Riddhima was enjoying the place,the mild summer days
and the breezy nights were fun,she did get bored ocasionally when Atul
and Anjali were at work but she didnt let that bother her much since
she had KD to her rescue ...4
weeks left for uni to start,she thought of touring the city...a few
acquaintances she made at the library and others were distant family she revisited...she also indulged herself in hobbies she'd never found time for before ... Life was almost perfect with not much work on and of course the daily chat with KD made it more fun and interesting ...
as Anjali reached the horn again, Riddhima slammed the main door close
and signalled sarcastically to stop the honk ... rushing towards the
front passenger seat she yanked the door open and sat in ..."what took
u so long Ridzie? " the two sisters had planned a shopping afternoon&amp;nbsp;
while Atul was busy gardening..."Di!!!!! I was trying to find your
mobile yar,it wasn't in your room ...." Riddhima wished Anjali believed
her , she had been on the chat and the byes took a little longer than
usual ....but what caused the delay was the thought she was disturbed
with... several minutes after closing the chat box ,she sat there
looking at the blank screen and wondered how and what to do...
KD had asked for her mobile number , in case of an emergency chat they needed to have ..... taken
aback with the sudden unexpected request to disclose details they had
decided not to share ever, Riddhima thought of the consequences when
she tells him of her move to London...."God! why did I have to ask her for her mobile number, now of
course she's gonna wanna know mine and then what? ...what were u
thinking Armaan???" he debated and cursed himself
&amp;nbsp;"will my move to London effect her lots or would she just&amp;nbsp; ignore it
as one of those things I missed to inform her about ???, damn! knew I should
have told her before ...." with his mind full of&amp;nbsp; doubts , he toddled
through the automatic doors of the entrance to the leisure centre.
In a daze ,he unlocked his locker and hung onto the tiny door pondering over the tricky situation he had landed himself in...
wrong with you? if u were'nt up for shopping yourself ,why did u drag
me out? seriously ! " Riddhima&amp;nbsp; payed no heed to Anjali's complaint
,her head was preoccupied&amp;nbsp; KD's abrupt query for her mobile number
which indirectly&amp;nbsp; could lead to a possibility of mistrust between the
pure and truthful relationship they share&amp;nbsp; ...
"Ridz! I think we're wasting our time,u seem the least bit interested&amp;nbsp;
and I've&amp;nbsp; got better things to do at home,&amp;nbsp; so lets go back shall we?"
nodding her head in agreement ,Ridz preferred to accept it all
As they walked back to the car they passed the leisure centre where Anjali was a member
"Ridz,do u wanna wait in the car while I go and pay for the my membership renewal?
not letting the trip to the town center turn into a complete waste,Anjali thought of using the opportunity since she was there
being a fitness fanatic ,working out at the gym was her
necessity, she made sure she visited the gym atleast thrice a week ,but
since work had taken its toll recently, she missed out on her work out
sessions,another reason she visited the gym less was coz she missed
her close friend who worked at the reception ,and was away on maternity
leave for a few months ....
"ok di " she agreed and whilst heading to the car she spotted a guy
talking on the phone , "it must be a sweetheart he's speaking to "she
smiled at herself over her random thought about a complete stranger she
noticed ? instantly her thoughts transitioned to thoughts of giving KD
her number "what if he does call someday? " the wishful expectation
gave her the jitters
"how would it feel to speak to him?, will he sound like my dream man? ....." a slight blush coloured her cheeks
&amp;nbsp;" what do u want your dream guy to sound like Ridz ? u've never heard
him before ... " she asked herself
&amp;nbsp;" yes I have... in my dreams and I
have a feeling KD will sound the same...." she shut her eyes in delight
to enjoy the thought...
"Ridz u are totally losing it,u are falling in love with a person u
dont know nothing about ,the only thought of hearing his voice makes u
nervous,what if u were to meet him someday?"
now that would be a dream come true!!! ,grinning wide with excitement&amp;nbsp;
she sat inside the car and looked at the digital clock on the
dashboard, it was well over 15 mins for Anjali to have been gone. She
pulled out her mobile and dialled "di" and on hearing the phone
vibrating next to her seat, she realised Anjali had left the mobile in
Browsing through the radio stations to find something fun, she sat in
the car and admired the sight overlooking the basement swimming pool area of the
leisure centre ...
the kids enthusiastically enjoyed their cute little strokes in the pool
,a few tried to make it to the deep end where the parents awaited with
encouraging arms to make it happen,
she smiled at their gestures and watched them play through the glass walls ....
Just as she turned her head to glance back at the clock ,her eyes saw
what she termed 'hot and sexy '...
A handsome physique emerged out of
the water from the adults pool.... she was completely stunned to see a
body so perfect, the abs accurately toned ,the bulging muscles so
strong&amp;nbsp; , covered with tattoos to enhance the 'dude' look ...
"Wow !" she gasped and tilted her head to catch a better glimpse of the
face that topped such a tempting body ... "Oh crap! "&amp;nbsp; much to her
regret the hunk had disappeared within a blink ....
"Killer dude!"&amp;nbsp; she exclaimed cheekily and chuckled post the blurt...
"KD???&amp;nbsp; I wish it was him, hehehe!&amp;nbsp; I wonder what KD looks like? he
must be something to claim that title , may be I should ask Nikki? or
would it be unfair to do so? what if he's asked Nikki about me?
although she promised she wont reveal anything , I guess it isnt hard
to talk her out of promises and as far as I know KD, he is skilled at
"now wait! why are u accusing him of something he might not have done
Ridz?&amp;nbsp; and if he really wanted to know what u looked like,he would have
asked to see a picture of yours, or may be see you on the video
chat,but he never did ask and like we've agreed ,we would'nt share our
personal lives or information....hmmm! but then isn't exchanging mobile
numbers changing rules??? .....dam Ridz! its only a mobile number,not
the end of the world, why u reading so much into it,I'm sure he must be
genuinely concerned to have asked or it"vicously tangled in her own thoughts she tried to resolve the issue to the best of her ability"oh
well,I had to tell him someday and I think he's only made it easier for
me.,I might just say I forgot...." a craftly smile took over
"but that would be a lie Ridz,u didnt tell him intentionally!" she hated it when her conscience played smart
"yes thats true ,but I dint want him to know,now dont ask why..."
Deeply absorbed in her self debate,she missed the faint whispers of the two people approaching the car
" Hi Ridzie !" Anjali greeted her cheerfully
"Jump in Armaan! "&amp;nbsp; Anjali had bumped into Armaan at the gym and offered him a ride back home
but little did he know of Riddhima waiting in the car,lest he would have passed the offer...
"arrrghhhhhh di!!!!!! , not him of all the people,but wait what's that on his arms?
Oh my God!&amp;nbsp; its the same tattoos I&amp;nbsp; saw a little ago...." Armaan
shifted his rucksack to the side and secured his seat belt , the tattoos
revealed through his light blue polo shirt ....the damp hair look added
to amazing physique and the natural charms....
he looked quite a hottie!!!!
'No!!!!!!!! Ridzi no,what the hell are u thinking?' disgusted with
herthoughts ,she cursed herself to be noticing him and decided to
change topics in her head
" Di,if u havent noticed ,u left me waiting in the car nearly an&amp;nbsp;
hour,what took u so long ?" completely ignoring his presence she had a
at Anjali to have kept her waiting,it was her way to vent her anger
" Ridz,sweety ,think of this as pay back for the time u wasted in the
town centre..." smiling teasingly Anjali unlocked the hand brake ...
Armaan didnt look too happy neither was Riddhima to share car space
with the guy she loved to hate....
'but didnt u just drool over his hot
hmm,only if I had known it was him,I wouldn't even have cared for a mistaken glance
Stepping onto the gas,Anjali started a convo with her guest
"so Armaan,how are u finidng it here?"
" yeh its gud,but I do miss home..." his tone reflected a frustration
'I miss the possibility to have met QT,I so miss that' shutting his eyes for a moment ,he thought out loud
"huh?" asked Anjali on hearing the vague muffle
"nothing! yes I do like it here, Muskaan,I mean bhabi is great fun ,I'm
sure u'll agree" he tried to change focus in the head just like she did
a few minutes ago
"yeh she is an awesome girl,makes delicious aloo ke parathe..." replied Anjali to praise her neighbour
"yeh, u should come over someday..." Armaan so regreeted the moment he agreed forthe ride home,her presence irked him greatly
"yeh I will,well Ridz has an invite already ,when shall we go Ridz?"
'never!' she muttered faintly,can't bear the thought of spending time around him
God ,I cant bear the sight of this man,his presence is suffocating and
to top it all I found him desirable,??? Arrghhhh Ridz how cud u???"
Anjali glared at Riddhima for not answering that one and to make up for it she said
" Armaan ,u should come to ours someday,I cant claim to be as good a cook
as Muskaan,but Ridz is an awesome with her recipes..." smiled Anjali
leaving Armaan vexed and Riddhima shocked
"Di!!! "she shot daggers at Anjali to have invited the enemy for dinner? ,moments later she spoke
"yeh sure! "smiling cunningly she strategised her plans of making the meal memorable
love u di! and you Mr irritating Armaan , get ready to suffer food poisoning!
Hey guysok this time delayed but not too much
the part is longer than my standard short oneshope u like it,thought I used less emotions somehowdo lemme know what u thought of itwithout the chat part all comments do matter a great deal to mehoping to cont sooner next time315 nutterslove u allHina
p.s: the part is also to celebrate the homecoming of the charger finallyyayyyy!
,lets have a party ~~~~~~~~
"hey Ridz,I forgot to tell u the reason I took so long
at the gym" clicking the kettle on to make herself some coffee , Anjali
tried to change Riddhima's grumpy mood
"pay back wasn't it?" she replied in the least bothered tone
"well yeh ...it was kind of that but there was something else I got caught up with at the gym"
Riddhima was in no mood of solving riddles , all she could think of was
Armaan's rude reply to the dinner invite... 'how could he? what does he
actually think he is? .....LOOSER!' she cussed and swore ...
" awww Ridz, sis did u really take that to be true ? " Anjali threw her
arms around her little sister thinking she was annoyed to have kept her
" di, I dont understand u yar,whats with the sudden display of love
now? and if this is your way of saying sorry to have given that jerk a
lift, then I'm sorry I can't forgive u for that mistake or call it a
blunder rather ...I hate him and that can't change ever!" she went
right up to Anjali's face and looked her deep in the eye to make
herself very clear
"God Ridz! he genuinely must have some plans he couldn't change , I'm
sure he wouldn't have said No otherwise... he seems a nice lad ,what
have u got against him anyway?"
Looking at Riddhima fuming with rage and unable to forget the offense ,
Anjali knew she was risking it "and if u didn't like him, why did u
agree to the dinner excitedly? I mean why did u volunteer to cook,if u
hate him so much? " Anjali seemed as confused as Riddhima's expressions
"Di,didn't u notice his impolite tone? how dare he say a blunt No!&amp;nbsp; as if I care anyway..."
"oh come on Ridzie,now u are overreacting ! I&amp;nbsp; think he's an interesting person, I
was infact hoping u get to know him better, coz there's so much common
in between u two,u might just click?...." sipping onto her coffee Anjali
hoped to change Riddhima's opinion of Armaan
"huh???" shocked and sickened by the comparison, Riddhima frowned at
Anjali for her weird hypothesis&amp;nbsp; " di,u don't even know the guy, what
similarities are u talking about?"
she looked at Anjali hoping she'd accept her wrong assumption&amp;nbsp; or atleast give a reasonable explanation .
" hmm, I was talking to him when walking back from the gym Ridz , he is
at the same uni as u and surprising enough,he has enrolled on the same
course as well and of course u both have&amp;nbsp; recently come from India, are
almost of the same age and ....." vexed with Anjali listing the
similarities,Riddhima felt humiliated to be associated with him in
any possible way
" enough yar di, I can choose my own friends can't I ? and befriending
him would be a disaster,the guy is a total jerk and I'd rather stay
away from such wierdos,no matter how alike we are... " greatly
disappointed and annoyed Riddhima tried to think of it as an
unfortunate coincidence,the only regret being the probability of seeing
him often, now that he will be at the uni and class ,how she detested
"anyway!&amp;nbsp; forget Armaan,I still havent told u what I wanted to... " Anjali looked excited again
"Ridz,remember I told u about this friend of mine who worked at the reception of the gym?"
"yeh what about her di?"
" well she is away on maternity leave for another few weeks ,the
management at the gym need cover till she returns and since my dear
sister was looking for a summer job of a few weeks, I spoke with the&amp;nbsp;
manager there and he's asked to drop in your CV and then he'll arrange
for a quick interview soon, what say Ridz? u up for it?"
I said No to the suspicious invite ,what if she were scheming to poison
my food? she seems evil enough to do that , I simply hate her!...my
reasons may be unfair&amp;nbsp; but I dont care,I just can't stand her
around, she is one stuck up cow ! "&amp;nbsp; waiting for the system to boot up
Armaan&amp;nbsp; assured himself of taking the right decision ...disturbed with
the truth of sharing uni and course with the wicked Riddhima ,he logged
onto the chat hoping to find peace and refuge .....
Things with QT weren't going well either,thanks to his silly urge to
ask for her mobile number... 'what must she think of me ? what if she
never chats to me ever again??? '&amp;nbsp; terrified with the mere thought , he
decided to leave her an offline message expressing his apology and to
gain back her confidence ...he thought of letting her know of the move
...skeptical about specifying the exact location as London, he settled
for UK as a wider and more appropriate choice...
what held him back? why wasn't he completely honest? if not a lie ,why
couldn't he tell her the complete truth of where exactly he lived ? ...
the questions lingered in his head as he typed the message....
am I reluctant to reveal the truth to KD ? he pulled me out of&amp;nbsp;
gloom, gave me a reason to smile and somehow made my life worthwhile
..... why do I need to be dishonest to him then? ....or is it beacuse
I've lost the ability to trust again? ' she secretly nursed the still
to say raw wounds that Abhi had left her with... trusting someone again
would be tough, especially when she barely knew anything but a few
common interests and an intriguing username of this person she couldn't
stop thinking of?...
Pacifying and convincing herself about him, she opened the chat to say it all in complete and true honesty.....
I know u must b frowning n thinking wat dis msg is all about
well I'm sorry to have been impulsive n irrational coz I know we had
agreed on not xchanging ne personal details... but 2 b honest, it
wasn't the emergencies I needed your no. for but it was coz I wanted to
you may find this strange but the truth is that I do wnt to know u more,on a personal front...
I know i'm bending da rules here, but d effect u have on me is
addictive , I find myself thinking about u all d time ,waiting 4 d
chats desperately n hoping to meet u someday...
I hadn't expected a relationship like this before,but since da bond is
growing stronger,I didn't want a lie to cause ne rifts ...
QT , I 've actually moved to London for further studies ,I know I shld
've informed u before,n believe me I did try ,but sumthin evil inside
ma head always convinced me against my plans...
I wont try to justify
myself but if u feel we could still be friends , here's my mobile
number 00447891157709 including the ISD code 4 ur
anticipating da reply my heart believes in...
Flicking the sweet tiny tears away, her doubts all vanished at once...
sincere feelings and thoughts&amp;nbsp; made her heart smile with content...
involuntarily compared Abhi's deceit to KD's honesty...
Nikki for making it happen afterall ,she thanked her with a
smile....and before she got carried away with her essay long reply to
KD's message , she gleefully typed a message for her friend to convey
her heartfelt thanks...
Nikki grinned wide to find two messages pop up when she logged into the chat&amp;nbsp; later that night...
Quite similar in content,both messages reflected the one emotion the
two senders experienced... it must be love she assumed ...thrilled with
the thought she fetched her phone to call them for an insight on details.... only to be caught in confusion of who to call
"Have fun Ridzie! the staff at the gym are all lovely people, I'm sure
u'll have no trouble fitting in , give me a buzz in your lunch break ok?
take care sis!....."&amp;nbsp; Anjali sure knew the art of&amp;nbsp; motivation and Riddhima loved
her sister for that...feeling the positive vibe
through the phone , Riddhima smiled sweetly and thanked her before
Standing in a corner outside the fitness centre where she was to start
work, she inhaled a fresh gust of cool air to keep herself perky...
not exactly nervous but a
little anxious about the people, she made her way inside to be warmly
greeted by the assistant manager ...
She was given a short induction and
assigned her duties right away ...
Happy with her so far so good morning, she
looked around and carried her phone under the desk to quickly check for KD's text message ...
elated to find 3 , she secretly tried to read the tiny screen...
" Ahem ahem ! excuse me ?&amp;nbsp; "
scared out of her wits ,she looked up at the person who might have caught&amp;nbsp; her red handed
trembling with fear , the
mobile slipped through her fingers and accidentally landed hard on her foot making her scream in
"Ouch !!! ..."
'Oh damn! its him,why him ???
oh no, not him!!!
oh sh** ! crap !!!!!'......
