oh and i had to note that i love the choice of chapter titles ;)
Chapter 14 - I love how ya describing and making us understand how hard and confusing these new feelings are for both SidShi and the arrival of Ridhima in that last bit will not help at all to settle their feelings. I can really understand the dilemma Shilpa must be going through since she has pretty much got to the conclusion of her feelings - love. So she will be having a harder time for now and also because Ridhima is her sister, making Sid her sister's ex-husband..wow thats quite a dilemma she's got to get through for love.
oh and Vivek is a lot better than i had thought him to be...plus he is aware of the love missing in their engagement so i have no worries about leaving him all sad and alone when Shilpa does go to Sid =) heh
Chapter 15 - Wow that was such an amazing part, ya have carried the characters on so well that this ff could very easily just be the continuance of DMG 2 in the real show =).
I extremely love the cold shoulder Shilpa gave to Armaan, i had a evil grin on my face while reading that..no pity for that guy! hehe
Oh and I'm so glad Sid is blatantly ignoring and resisting Ridhima's chance to enter his life again, i hope Shilpa could see that.
I feel so bad for Shilpa..she's so aware of the love Sid had for Ridhima and her fears and doubts from the past do not help at all. But the part where Sid grabbed hold of her hand softly and asked about her burn..that was utterly cute and quite a sexy scene due to his instant protectiveness and the way i imagined him grab her hand hehe. the bag of Runts just laying there in his car waiting for her to come back..aww and Sid noticed =)
Ridhima's character is such that she is so used to things revolving around her, she can't seem to see that attention towards anyone else..which is where Shilpa steals her limelight. Thats why she expected Sid to save her, she had took him for granted and thats why she was sad enough to stand infront of a truck coming towards her..what a desperate saddo..i wouldn't exactly be mourning if she did end up underneath the truck...
i can't believe she is doing all this just to want to prove the point that she had meant everything to Sid once..but she doesn't anymore and i hope that sinks into her hard.
Armaan hates Sid? Perhaps because of the uneraseable imprint Sid had left behind on both Armaan and Ridhima's lives. But he can't blame Sid for life hitting him straight back in the face for the way he ruined SidShi's lives..
The best part though was the last part, the way in which you described Sid literally fighting to keep control over his instinct and his true desire was amazing to read..superbly written, Sidra!
Chapter 16 - I admire how Sid sets a calming atmosphere for Shilpa even just with his voice..his presence. He has really learnt how to not be read like a book anymore, not letting Shilpa read the ongoing struggle behind his blank face.
i had to share this with ya, ya see the part where someone yells "Ridhima! Move out the way!" At first i had thought that Sid was yelling at Ridhima to move out of his way so that he could save Shipa and i was laughing because of that until i realised Sid didn't yell that, it was Armaan..my thoughts were quite cruel then but Sid wouldn't deject Ridhima that much in the process of saving lives.
The way in which when Ridhima was ignored by Sid she had Armaan to fall back onto really matches her character..she needed both of them to lean on and so she uses them both which was sad when SR were married but now she can't use Sid because Sid won't allow himself to be budged and Shilpa won't allow that to ever happen. You have nailed all 4 characters perfectly Sidra =)
Sid would never regret saving Shilpa instead of Ridhima. Its endearing how important Shilpa is for Sid..i can't really add more to what he felt when he saved her because you've done that for us so well!
Yes i am so glad ya didn't ruin Shashanks charater in your ff, he finally stopped spoiling Ridhima by heeding her every demand and sudden decisions.
And one last thing to the chapter comment, Shilpa has finally..FINALLY gave in and surrendered to being in love with Sid! =)
