Yes. The place where he used to come to meet his mentor Dr. Rahul and where they used to share numerous jokes was now only a place where his memories were filled only with one word cancer. He walked in Dr. Rahul's office.
Rahul: Hi Armaan. Are you feeling good today?
Armaan: you know how I feel.
Rahul comes to him and makes him sit down.
Rahul: Armaan I know yo are going through tremendous pain and it is hard for me to even imagine what you are going through. But you have to let her know. It is high time Armaan. You should have told her already. You know the more you delay it the more it is affecting your life.
Armaan: Rahul I had made up my mind to tell her everything on that day at night.. but that phone call changed everything. I didn't want to ruin her happiness. I can die for her you know.
Rahul: N you are dying every minute even as we speak Armaan. She is in the best stage of her life where in theres a life being brought up in her. Yu think she would be that weak. If you tell her she will become your support. If she finds out from somewhere else.. can you imagine her condition at that point. She will feel betrayed. Armaan you have to tell her. N if you don't then I wil definetly. I cannot delay this anylonger. We have to perform your surgery soon. Your tumor is expanding already. N no more delays' u tell her today or tomorrow morning the first call that she gets will be mine.
Armaan: Please Rahul I cannot do it. You kno it. She is in such a beautiful phase ..nnnn
Rahul: N if you hide it anymore from her'.. it will hurt her.. don't u get it'..
Armaan just stands there quite. Thinks. And then he finally says. I will talk to her tomorrow morning but just let me be with her like a normal person in her eyes.. tonigh.
Rahul: You are normal Armaan,. This is just a disease that we have to get cured'.
Armaan nods: You are too sweet but I am aware what I would have to go through once after the surgery. Just this one night''' let me be with her' as her Armaan'. N tomoroow morning I wil tell her
Rahul agrees' n then Armaan takes his leave and goes to pick up Riddhima.
While Driving to Nanavati Hospital where she works as a Gynac he remember the night he was coming home n the phone call he had received:
Rahul : I want to meet you now. Come at Sanjeevani. Saying that much he had hung up.
Armaan was worried and thought what must have happened.
He reached Sanjeevani and went to Rahuls cabin.
Rahul : Armaan I was afraid of this .
Armaan just looks at him asks of what Rahul. What happened
Rahul: Armaan you wil have to bear this news with a lot of strength . Its not going to be easy for you neither for me but I have to tell it to you.
Armaan just wonders and waits for him to finish what he is saying.
Rahul: Remember, the day you felt dizzy during the operation' and then you said that it happened to you regularly.. I was afraid of this but I wanted to be sure of that before I said nything to you that's Y I asked you to do those tests and the results are in my hand. Armaan'. With a heavy heart I have to say this' that you have Brain tumor.
Armaan was just shocked. He couldn't believe it. At first he just thought that Rahul is kidding bu when he looked at the reports he realiseddd that gravity of the situation.
Rahul: But we can still treat it'. We would have to perform a surgery and you would be fine after that. But you kno what happens after the surgery. It will take you time to recover. And hence I want you to tell Riddhima about it soon and then we would go on with the surgery.
Armaan thought about it. About Riddhima but he knew this was curable so he didt cry.. he knew Riddhima was strong and would be there to support him' so he told Rahul.. I will tell her tonight' saying that he hugged Rahul and then left.
While drving back to his home he received a call from Subra and that just changed everything. The confident Armaan just broke. He had heard a news earlier that was affecting him and this second news just brought down the heavens in his lap he was happy'. Very happy nnnn then thee realization stukc him'.he couldn't ruin this moment of thiers' he had to hide about his illness from him. He knew if her told her'. She would sacrifice her health and her well being over his.. n her didn't want that'. So he hid it from her'..
Back to present.. he reached'. The clinic and Riddhima was waiting for him. She came and sat in the car.
Riddhima: (she smiled at him) It was a long day today. But a satisfying one. How was urs.
Armaan: thought abt what Rahul had said'. It was good( he said)
Whle they were driving back he didn't say a word, didn't tease her, didn't play with the baby'.. Riddhima found it odd.
She touched his hand and asked, " Armaan. Kya hua. Anything serious at work."
Armaan said no Riddhima just tired'. She hesistated.. then said ok. N then removed her hand from his hand and sat there in the seat just touching her tummy which was already bulging. She sensed something was not right and so decided to do soemthign on her own.
Riddhima said" Armaan stop the car."

He got worried, "Kya hua Riddhima. Is everything ok. Is the baby ok." Riddhima laughed, " Yea the baby is fine. I just need fresh air. Can we sit somewhere where theres quite before gong home." Armaan said, " but yahan. This is so freaky ." She said, " ok then not here somewhere else that more beautiful." He agreed and took drove her on the mountain side towars the top from where they could see the entire city. As the started on the mountain. Her breath started becoming heavy. He said, " This completely crossed my mind. We should not drive on hill top. Its on a height its gonna make breathing heavier for you." She said" still breathing heavily.. No Armaan I want to go there'. Take me there'" Armaan interrupted but she insisted'. He thought he shouldn't have thought about the idea'.. He drove slowly all the way and then gently helped her out of the car. She hold on to his hand and they walked towards the egde. He said be careful don't go allthe way towards the egde. Wait let me brign out the chairs and Riddhima stay here don't go towards the egde.
He ran back to get the chair and his head started hurting'. He quickly hid behind the car' and said not now god not now please'. Give me time until tomorrow morning'' eh took out the medicine from his car and drank it'. Sat for a sec then picked up the chair and left' coming by the cliff edge here Riddhima sit.. n he helped her sit in the chair'.. n then he opened his chair and sat. they both kept staring at the city that looked so beautiful
Armaan asked her' are you hungry cuz I have some fruits in the car I can brign it out. She said No Armaan we ill go home and it. He asked the baby are u hungry.. Riddhima laughed and nodded'. Armaand smiled and went to the car'. Took the apple washed it the water he had and brought itfor her' Riddhima asked' aur tumm' He said main tumhari mummy ke saath ghar par khaunga'. N they both laughed'.. She was eating and he kept looking at her'.Riddhima asked him tumhe baby toh touch nahn karna aaj' Armaan inched in closer with his chair so that he could feel the baby and toucher her Tummy. Riddhima released a sigh. Riddhima said, " You kno aaj pura din tumhare baby ne mujhe tang nahin kiya.. kyunki use pata tha end main papa milenge hi na'" He smiled at her innocence but inside cried at the thought that the baby is becomgin so attached to it'..n that is soemthign happened to him during the operation how willthe baby control'. He jus tsat quietly and looked at the stars.. Riddhima said, "tum aaj bade chup ho.. I know you are tired and all but biwi bacho ke samne toh bol hi sakhte ho na'" Armaan laughed'." Ha aap toh main biwi baccho wala hone wala hoon na'." they both laughed and stared away in the front at the view'. Armaan said that let me bring you water and he removed his hand from her tummy. She nodded. But just as he left she started feeling a little pain.. At first she ignored it' but then it just ran thorugh her stomach really bad and she screamed, " Armaan''''.." H dropped the bottle and rushed towards her' "Riddhima kya ho raha hain tumhe'.(seeing her screaming in pain)' abhi toh time hain na'.(talking about her delivery..) are you okyyy'.. let me take you to the doctor'''.

He sat there' not crying not emoting just thinking' what happenend today was something he has never seen.. the baby was so attached to him' if he went for the surgery now.. Riddhma would be alone' who would take her care'. Who would' make the baby understand'.. no he had to wait until the baby cam into the world then there would the babys nana nanis, dada dadis to take care of her.. but now he had to postpone it'. The doctor cam in his room with Riddhima.. Armaan got up and helped Riddhima sit down'. And then the doctor said.. this was very unusual today..but as I mentioned b4 Dr,Armaan the baby is used to ur touch,'..so u must not stop that unlike ho u mentioned to Dr. Riddhima.. (he looked at her that u told the doctor')she didn't tell me I heard it when I was about to walk in'.Look Dr. Armaan' this is extreme but its just a case of love'.

I m sure its nothing out of the ordinary'. But I had to be sure.. after all its ur baby (they smile andtake the doctors leave' He helps Riddhima get out of the chair'. And takes her to the car makes her sit in the car and then drives back home safely')
At home, he parks the car, helps Riddhima out of the car and they go home. She tells him not to worryyy.. Its just that his baby is learning to love right from the inception. He smiles she says let me go n change then we wil eat. She goes to change' he is still thinking.. he makes a call'to Rahul and explains all this he says Rahul I cannot do it'.(Riddhima hears the last bit..she asks what can u not do Armaan..he quickly changes the topic..)I cannot perform the operation' It's a bit risky and we have to look at the details first.. (Riddhima realizes that he is talking abt his patient she goes into the kithchen)Rahul I really cnnot do this'(Rahul understands and says I wil have to talk to my team n the n I wil let u kno')
He goes in the kitchen and sees Riddhima lifting the bowls to brign them at the dining table..

He asks her why are u smiling' She says nothing'I m just smiling at whatever happened today'. He said nothing'.jsut kep eating silently' she knew he was worried when all that happenend n she should probably have notsaid what she did. So she just continued eating'.. They finished eating'.

It continues from where we left.
She lay on the bed staring at him while he had his back turned towards her but was still awake. Armaan was thinking of whatever had happened today and the fact that he could not tell her anyways now and wait for the baby to come into this world even if it meant hurting himself. He was thinking about detaching himself from the baby and from Riddhima so that when they come to know about it it would be less painful for her. He decided that he would stay away from Riddhima and the baby for their own sake even if it pained him to do that, but he would still do it. Riddhima was awake as well and still looking at Armaan, she thought that now he would turn, then he would turn and talk to the baby, touch her belly. She was feeling as if a part of her body was missing. She was thinking that its maybe because of what happened today and that maybe tomorrow he would be normal. Thinking that with a clear mind she slept. Him on the other hand couldn't sleep all night. After like 2 hours he turned towards her to see her fast asleep just as he had expected. He stay there looking at her face, her beautiful face. He wanted to caress her, make her feel special but he was stopping himself. He looked at the belly and felt the urge to touch it but controlled himself because he knew if he grew anyclose it would create problem for Riddhima. All night he kept looking at her.
Riddhima woke up an hour late today. She got up and turned to see Armaan but his side was empty. She was worried as to where did he go this morning. She slided on the bed towards the table on Armaan's side where there was a letter addressed to her.
The letter: Riddhima I have a surgery today and hence I am leaving early. I have kept your breakfast on the table. Subra will come and pick you up and drop you off in the evening. I won't be able to come to pick you up as I have a late night shift. So finish your dinner and don't wait for me. Take care. Armaan.
Riddhima just kept looking at it. Armaan had never reacted like this even if he was tight on the schedule. She decided to call him but it went on voicemail so she left him a message, "Armaan I need to talk to you. Please give me a call back. Bye. Love you." She waited for a minute to see if he calls back but he didn't. Reluctantly she went to shower, once out she immediately went to check her phone but no miss calls. She went downstairs to eat and saw that he had done everything and left food for her. She sat down to eat it and while eating remembered all the moments when he pulled her back and made her eat, when she was acting to feel dizzy and he helped her. She was missing all that, missing him. He baby kicked her inside…. She felt happy and was like I know baby you agree with me. She called him to tell him that their baby kicked her for the first time but it was still on voicemail, she left him a voicemail, "Armaan, While eating breakfast today I was remembering you and you know our baby kicked me. Come home and I am sure she will kick again after all she wants to show it to her daddy too. Love you. Missing you already." She waited for him to call back. But he didn't. Subra came in. She helped Riddhima do the Dishes and then took her to the hospital. Riddhima told her what happened yesterday And how Armaan was acting today. Subra said that it is definetly visible that hes upset but you must not let him alone. Just let him know that you are there for him. Riddhima said that she is trying to reach him but he is not picking up. Subra said that I will try to talk to him. Riddhima then went to her cabin and engrossed herself in work. Subra went to her cabin and called Armaan. Armaan picked it up N Subra told him that is he ok? She said that she doesn't want to interfere in his and Riddhima's personal life but she just wanted to tell him that Riddhima is trying to reach him since morning. Armaan said I know Subra but I am just busy in work. Subra said I understand but you know that she needs you and you them both. I don't know whats preventing you from talking to her but please do talk to her she looked a little sad and its good for her and your baby to be sad, Armaan. Armaan said ok I will talk to her.He was in Rahul's office when he was attending the call. He ended the call. He told him about the call. Rahul listened to him very patiently and then said, " Armaan I understand your pain. But what you are not realizing is that the tumor is killing you every minute. You have to tell her one day."Armaan screams at him that , "You are not realizing how this is going for me. I saw how strongly the baby reacted to my absence. N if I go through the operation I know what I would have to go through after that. She would need me then. How can I leave her helpless like that."They hear something break outside. They turn. He sees her , she sees him. She just stands there shocked. And he whispers, "Riddhima."

She starts feeling dizzy, he quickly rushes outside and so does Rahul, Armaan rushes to her side,"Riddhima tum..yah.." She doesn't even let him complete his sentence and shrugs him off… She stumbles … he hold her again.. she shrugs him off again… and is about to fall.. He becomes angry and holds her lifts her and takes her inside Rahuls cabin while Rahul held the door for him. Rahul said I wil just brign water you stay with her. He makes her sit on the chair and is about to ask, "Riddhima are you o….."She just removes his hand from her and tries to get up but the dizziness just brings her down. He comes down on his knees….

The other hand she touches on her stomach and then her heart and brings it to the window. He brings his hand to hers and she just keeps on crying.. He keeps telling her to open the window and let him talk… but she just keep crying….Its liekas if they were in a trance… then suddenly breaking off the trance she starts her car andgoes and he just kept on running after her saying Riddhim.. please no be carefullllllll btu she drove fast and he couldn't catch up.

After half an hour he got a call from Subra," Armaan Riddhima has been into an accident please come soon she need you…" Armaan just drove quickly to Nanavati.. n asked for Riddhima… the nurse said there is no one admitted by that name. He just screamed at her…….. Subra came running there and said Armaan go in room 305 they are operating her there please hurry. He just rannn he went to the room but it was dark..

But did you not realize how much you mean to me Armaan. I have been trying to find out why have you been acting so strange since morning. I knew you were hiding something from day one. That day. I didn't tell you about my dizziness and you got mad.. how do you expect me to react to this Armaan……… you hid such a big thing from me… Whyyyy????? Did you not consider me your own..(Armaan said, "Riddhim no you know you are the world to me." )No I am not…otherwise you would have told me about ur illness.

She laughed….The waiter came in and said" Sir Maam your table is ready this way please" They smiled and followed him. Then they ordered some food and he said… I will just be back in a minute… She said ok….
As soon as he left… the lights turned off she got scaredd..she said Armaan, a spotlight cam on him and music started playing in the back….. Na hai yeh paana… Na hai yeh khonaaa..

He watched her sleep away and felt content that he didn't have to hide anything now….Riddhima woke up in the middle of the night and wanted to drink water……she saw his hand was still in hers and on her tummy she smiled kissed on his forehead a smile passed his face….. got upand set on her bed…. Drank water and juststayed there…looking at him. He got up and said Riddhim tumhe kuch chahiye… She said nahin.. he said then y r u awake… she said.. I got for water .He lloked at her…she said kya hua he asked tumhe need nahin aa rahi kya… she said.. yeah…he moved to her lap and held her hand played with the fingers… and they talked all night.. about the baby about their future life what would they name the baby etc etc.. Suddenly she touched her stomach.. she said.. Armaan u kno whatmonth is this.. he said yeah its still ur sixth month.. y.. she said.. can we have a premature delivery. He asked her y are u asking this… she said.. cuz I feel some movement in my stomach.. he moved up lets go to the doctor..she said.. no I m sure this is nothng but still I feel something…. He said lets go we are goin… In their night dress he drove her to the hospital… all the while he kep asking her…. U r felling ok na… or is is paining too much… she smiled and said.. I m fine…. Its just a little….they reached the hospital and went to her doctor….. they checked her gave her medications and then told them that this is normal in pregnancy. The babys weight is coming on the uterus and hence I believe this…. U shld try not to stand a lot and support ur belly… that shld reduce thepain. The doctor smiled and said take car.e..and then they came back home…. He asked her Riddhim..aaa I am doing the operation fro u n our baby can u do one thing for me.. she asked yes Armaan just name it.. he said..plz stop working….for a few months… it might affect u I m afraid.. she assures him that its not because of work….but that it happenes in pregnancy..he stil tries to make her understand.. but she says… I don't want my patients to suffer…n then she tell sthe story of one of her patienssts who was working right before her delivery.. but before Armaan could say anything she said… I wil stop working in the 9th month don't worry… he smiles a bit and said fine….and they went to sleep.

The next day was Armaans operation so they did breakfast early and Armaan made it… He made her eat it with his own hands….n she ate it savouringly….. they cracked jokes…..with each other… n then..she said.. Armaan its time… he stopped what he was doing.. just stared at her….. She got up and walked to him.. and told him I am there for at every step…..come lets go… Hesistantly they go… and reached Sanjeevani….. rAhul ws ready with his team and was just waiting for them… As soon as they cam e in welcome Riddhima.. u looked beautiful.. the baby is making u glow.. armaan said eey rahul she officially mine.. rahul said.. yeah yeah I kno… kya abhi taarif bhi nahin kar sakta man.. they all laughed…..it was time for armaans operation…..the nurse aksed him to wear the pateienst clothes.. he wore them n cam in the ward.. the nrse said dr Armaan we will go into the operation in 30 min… everyone came to wish him a speedy recovery……….he took everyones blessing at the end it was 5 min left to go he told Rahul plz don't send anyone in for 5 min…Rahul agreed and took everyone with himmm to the OT to get things ready it was only Riddhima and Armaan…
Armaan: Riddhima(he said holding her hand) so this is it….
Riddhima tightened her grip on his and said, " This is a new beginning for all the three of us" He smiled. She added, " Don' forget tum biwi bacche wale ho. We will be waiting for you." He asked her, "Riddhima, you will be there for me na." A tear rolled down her eyes, "Armaan I wil always be there for you.you don't believe me. I know you believe ur baby more." He smiled. She took his hand and put it on her tummy…, "See you baby's heartbeats… the baby is saying daddy come soon.. I will be waiting for you." He was about to cry but he could say nothing. The nurse came in and said Dr. Armaan we are ready to go. He looked at Riddhima took her hand gave her a kiss on the hand…she took it on her lips. HE SAID, " I have to go now Riddhima." She nodded . He went with the nurse and Riddhima just stayed there looking at her hands….that he had kissed. Rahul came in and said, "Riddhima, you are really very brave. Always be this brave. You know we are not sure what would happen.. but I will try my best u know it na…(she nodded a yes) u need to take rest go home and rest I will call u and tel u the details of the case.. She said, "No Rahul.. I promised him I will not leave him… N I won't " Rahul said, "Riddhima u need to take care of your baby too." She said, " My baby kknows that her dad need me after all (she touched her belly) shes a daddys girl na…" A tear roller her eye….. Rahul put a hand on her head (a blessing gesture) and just left from there…..
The Operation started… Armaan was conscious he kept looking at the window in the OT at her. She kept looking at him and assuring him by signals that she and the baby are fine and that nothing will happen to her. Not for a minute did she move.. because she knew his eyes were on her. The nurse came to her and said, "Maam you will be tired please sit down" Without even looking at her, still looking at Armaan she said, " I am fine sister. My husband is depending on me. I cannot move. Thankyou." The sister just kep looking at her.then she left…. All through out the operation they gazed at each other. Rahul kept loking at her just to check on Riddhima and see if she is alright.. he would send someone or other outside to check on her…the operation lasted 12 hours….Finally the light closed and she just collapsed.. Rahul was out there he caught her made her sit. Rahul said, "Riddhima what is this? You promised him you wil wait for him and if you do this how wil u fulfill his promise?" She didn't realsie what he said she asked him, " Rahul how is he..?" Rahul said, "Riddhima, he is out of danger the tumor ahs been removed.. he will be under observation for the next 24 hours… but Riddhima Are you listening to me…"Riddhima says as if in a trance.. "Huh.. kya..Rahul can I see him please……" Rahul thinkg to himself…. " these two are just impossible… he was ready to sacrifice his life on her n she is ruining her health for him" Rahul tries to brign her to reality but she just keeps saying "Rahul let me see him once." He says" Oky I will let you see him but if u promise me that after seeing him u will go home and eat well.." She doesn't listen to what he sys she just hears that he said he will let her go …she agreed and he took her to Armaan.. He made her sit next to him…She just looked at him…at the bandage on his head… she touched his face…. She was about to cry but Rahul controlled her told her Riddhim I fulfilled my promise now u have too she kept saying Rahul let me be by hs side.. plzz. Rahul called up Subra….. for help.. In half and hour Subra came in… She told Riddhima that Riddhima Armaan wants u too b thr na so u wil hv to tk cr of ursled to be with him.. someone this finally got to her… she thanked rahul an said I wil be back….Rahul tahnked Subra….n Subra took her home. She called her husband and told him that she would be staying withRiddhima tonight because her condition is not stable… he agreed to it…S ubra made some dinner and made her eat… she ate quietly just thinking abt Armaan abt the momnts she hadwith him… abt his touch ,the dinner they had yesterday..She just cried out loud..Subra went to her she cried on SUBRAS SHOULDER…..Riddhima said "Subra I am just afraid for him… I want hm to be safe….."Subra consoled her saying he wil be he has u don't worry…Subra finally made Riddhima sleep. Next morning she got a call from Rahul and said Subra…I called u first because I kne u must be with her.. I hv mixed news … good news is that he is safe but…the bad part is…he doesn't rememberthe past 2and half years….… Subra was shocked.. she said to Rahul that she will bring him but she didn't know how to break this news to Riddhima….Riddhima came downstairs all dressed and told to Subra…..lets go..Subra was unable to tell her anything….they reached the hospital n she just went past everyone to Armaan Rahul asked Subra did u tel her.. she said no I didn't kno hwo to…He said then we must stop her cuz Armaan is awake but he know nothing of their marriage and if her sees her like that wont he question her abt her pregnancy….. THEY run to stop her but when they reach the room they see that Riddhima is already by his bed… They think its too late now…. Armaan is about to open his eyes Riddhima is sitting next to him on the chair..She takes his hand and touched her belly…. Armaan wakes up and is pleased to see Riddhima he says Riddhima kaisi ho….tum yahan kaise.. she doesn't realize why he said that.. but moves on Armaan tum thik ho na…. he said ha Riddhima… mujhe bus thodi sic hot lagi thi us bike accident main isiliye toh yahan pe hoon.. its like her world just comes crashing down……she asks him bike accident.. he says ha remrb mere aur rahul ke beech main…. She stil looks puzzled rahul come s in and says.. kya yaar tujhe har e k bike accident main hosp pahunchne ki jaldi hoti hain…Riddhima looks at Rahul and is about to ask him when subra comes in Armaan tells her hi subra….abhi kaisa hai.. shaadi ke baad to tum gayab hi ho gayi ho…. Riddhima asks him Armaan tum aise baat kyun kar rahe hoon..

He was fast asleep/. He was sedated to sleep because she tried to wake him but he didn't wake up…. She took his hand and put it on her belly….. it was as if she was waiting forever for this…. Tears rolled down her eyes….she just stayes there holding on his hand on her belly her eyes closed… cuz she didn't know when would she be able to get tha feeling next….. Armaan woke up slowly looked at Riddhma and that his hand was inside the shawl that she was wearing.. He asked her Riddhima what are u doing.. She got startled…. Didn't know what to answer… He got up she was still clutching his hand to hers on the belly….he moved ahead to remove the shawl but she said no armaan plzz no.. he asked kyun Riddhima.. tumhi ne mera chooha hua hai.. she let her hand go off his… but his hand was still on the belly….Riddhima held her shawl tightly…..

It was hurting her so much.. Rahul tookHer and told Armaan to shut up.. and took her away…..
ARMAAN said " Rahull toh eyh hai wohh"
They were both shocked….and stopped "Armaan.. "Rahul said tujhe hosh nahin hain tu kya keh raha hain….
Armaan "nahin hosh toh abhi aya hai…… mere peet peeche yeh sab karna tha… toh kyun ayi meri life.. chali jao.. Riddhima….chali jao"
Riddhima could take it no more…. She ran out of the roomran all the way…….. int o the parking garage….Rahul told subra to go after her… but Riddhima stated the care even before Subra could come and just drove…… AAlll the while she was driving…..she thought of the accusations that Armaan put on her…….She reached home but was afraid to go in because his memories would haunt him his words would taunt him…..She just stay in her car… afraid to go in afraid to go out… she just stood there……she touched her belly and cried……Subra reached her home she told her to come out of the car finally she made her come out….n made her sit down
