ridhima got up..armaan also stood straight...both got embarassed..everyone was looking at them..
shilpa:dekha armaan dushmano ki bhi help karta hai...(wd pride)
ridhima was feeling vry uncomfortable...she didn't know why,but something clicked her heart when he was looking in her eyes...armaan's feeling also arised again which he wanted to supress...
anjali:come ridzi..let's go...kal pata chale ga kon kitna pani men hai..
she took ridhima wd her and muskaan and atul too left wd them..
shilpa's pager rang and she left too...
rahul:so(wd cocked eyes)
rahul: what's cooking??
armaan:(he realized wht rahul is gona ask)noth...nothing yaar...ridhima is just a frnd...
rahul: when did i ask about ridhima??(wd a smile)
armaan:oh no!!(he thought)
his pager rang and he xcused from rahul and left...infact ran away..rahul got what's happening..
everyone had left...ridhima was coming out of locker room when she bumped into armaan and the file in her hand fell down...she was vry close to arman..he was holding her from waist...both were again lost into each other...
after some moments,they came out of each other's gaze...
armaan: umm..i'm sorry...wo meri ghalti thi mene dekha nai..
ridhima:nai nai..wo meri ghalti thi..men file men dekh rai thi..
armaan:nai wo actually..(he bent down to pick up the file and gave it to her)
meanwhile anjali shouted from the corridoor
anjali:ridzi..!! come on..we'r getting late..
ridhima: wo di..(smile) bye!
she was leaving when armaan called her 4m back
armaan: all the best 4 2morrow(smiled and left)
ridhima stood there looking at him 4m back and smiled...admiring his nice behaviour...
ridhima left wd anjali and armaan left wd shilpa 4 home..
anjali was driving the car and was continuously talking about something whereas ridhima was lost in armaan's thoughts...she knew him 4 about last 1 month but 4 the frst time she was thinking about him so deeply..
ridhima: hmm... han...kya hua..

they reached home and left 4 their rooms..
on the other side,shilpa and armaan were having the same discussion
shilpa: i know u'l win armaan and that ridhima will lose..then she would know that my buddy is better than her..
armaan: nai yar shilpa...ridhima is very nice and sweet..wo bhi bohat intelligent hai...infact mujh se zyada hardworking aur dedicated dr. hai..
shilpa: (she didn't like armaan taking her side) han if u say so..(low voice)
armaan: (he noticed it and tried to change the topic)hey u know ur parents r at my place..mom called me and asked to come home quickly..
shilpa: acha..what cud be the reason(she thought praying what she's hoping to come true)
they reached home and saw their parents sitting and chatting...both of them greeted evryone and everyone greeted them back...
ananya:shilpa beta!hwz ur work going??
shilpa:vry well aunty..

ananya:tension na le armaan hai na...
shilpa smiled thinking about spending maximum time wd armaan..the whole family chatted 4 some more time and then karan,nandini and shilpa left 4 their house..armaan went to his room..
he was lying on his bed and started thinking about ridhima...her eyes,her smile,the way she looked at him when he held her in canteen...her gaze was killing him..4 the frst time he could feel something in ridhima's eyes too...
armaan: is it my mistake or she feels the same as i feel 4 her..kya wo abhi bhi mere bare men soch rahi hogi jese men soch raha hun...
he was lost thinking about her where on the other side ridhima too was thinking about him
ridhima:he was so nice to me even after we fought...he wished me luck 2..aur mene us se jhagar kar acha nai kya...i should say sorry to him...
she called armaan
arman: hi ridhima!! sab theek hai?? (concern as she called at night like this)
ridhima:han han sab theek hai..wo actually...men wo(finding words)

ridhima:nai meri ghalti thi..
armaan:nai meri thi..

he puts the phone down and starts thinking about ridhima again and went to sleep...
ridhima on the other hand couldn't stop thinking about armaan all night...and figuring out this new feeling...
