Part 9 (AR)

But just in time, as a God sent angel, Atul came back in the cabin.

"Uh Ridzi... koi problem hai?", he spoke as he felt the tension in the atmosphere.

"Nai to, main aur Mallik case ke baare mein baat kar rahe they, to ek point tha witnesses ka, jahaan hum agree nahi kar rahe they, bas wahi discuss kar rahe they. Ab main ek lawyer ke point of view se sochti hoon, and ye businessman ke, to differences aa hie jaate hain na. Anyways tum batao kuch kaam tha?", Riddhima covered up.
Armaan wondered in amazement at her smooth lie. Had he not known the truth, he also would've believed her, no wonder Atul took her word.

"Haan, maine apne cases dekh liye hain, and am gonna work on them. Meanwhile ye tumhare case ka material, Mr Mallik wala. I think you should get going and get the witnesses ready. Do din baad case ki pehli hearing hai", Atul handed her a file.

"Thanks so much Atul. I know how much we are all under this deadline. I'll now hurry up with the witnesses. Mallik, we'll have to go by my way. I need to question your employees, if its ok?", Riddhima asked him.

"Haan haan kyun nahi, i am sure they'll be glad to help you. Tumne pehle kyun nahi bataya ki tum mere employees ko witness banane wali ho?", Armaan asked her back in amusement, while Riddhima gave him the 'are-you-nuts?' expression, which he failed to understand.

"Er... wo isliye na Mallik... kyunki... haan kyunki hamari argument mein tumne ye suna hie nahi ki witnesses tumhare log honge. Hamari argument, remember, about the witnesses, jo Atul ke aane se pehle ho rahi thi, yaad aaya kuch", Riddhima made weird expressions to Armaan, and finally he did understand.

"Haan haan wo argument, tum bhi na, kitna argue karti ho... cheh!", Armaan laughed a little to cover his mistake.

"Ok guys, i think tum logon ko nikalna chahiye", Atul finally sent them out. Riddhima asked Armaan to go ahead, she would just join him. After a few seconds had passed, Armaan realised that he'd left his cell in the cabin. He went back to get it, but stopped at the gate when he heard voices from inside.

"Ridzi, are you sure you wanna do it? I know its very tough for you. If you want, i can go to talk to the witnesses. You dont have to do it all", Atul was saying to Riddhima.

"Nai Atul, sachi, mujhe koi problem nahi hai. And Mallik is also fine, not the types that we hear in the news. He hasnt made even a single move towards me till now. And his attitude, i am sure i can take care of it for a few days", Armaan heard Riddhima's reply. He peeped in a little, and saw both of them standing next to each other.

"Well, choice tumhari hai, i just hope you'll be fine", Atul said softly.

"Awww (saying this Riddhima hugged him, who hugged her back) Atul, i will be fine, sachi, please khudko itni tension mat do. Aur ek baat, thank you, thank you very much, kabhi kuch bhi poochhe bina hamesha mere decision ko respect karne ke liye, for always being there without any doubts in your heart, kabhi na poochhne ke liye, ki maine kya kyun kiya, for standing for me despite everything", Riddhima told him, as she quickly wiped a tear.

"Haan haan theek hai, ja. Just take care, ok? Jaate jaate ek baat sunti ja, mujhse jhooth bolne ki koshish mat kiya kar (she looked at him confusingly) wo argument, tere aur Armaan ke beech, about the witnesses (she bit her tongue) main jaanta hoon tu jhooth bol rahi thi. Armaan ka slip of tongue to baad mein tha, us se pehle hie main sach samajh gaya tha. So next time mujhse hoshiyari mat karna. And Ridzi, personally, i liked your decision, poori story sun ne main baad mein aaoonga, but i think tune sahi kiya. Leo is a great person, i'm sure he'll be a part of our family soon", at this, Riddhima flung her arms around Atul, and kissed him on his cheek.

"Love you Atul"

"Love you too Ridzi, ab nikal bhi ja na"

Riddhima came out of the door, and bumped into Armaan.

"Wo main apna cell andar bhool gaya tha, wo lena hai", Armaan said. They picked up his cell, and finally made an exit. Outside the office, Armaan said that they would take his car. Riddhima argued that she had to come back as well, but Armaan assured her that he would drop her. She didnt want to waste time in arguing, so she agreed with him.

It was a silent drive to the Mallik empires. Riddhima was busy reading her file, whereas Armaan was stealing glances to look at her. His mind was in a turmoil as he recalled Atul's words. Atul had referred to Riddhima's discomfort in taking this case, after all Riddhima ko kya problem hai Malliks se? But he felt elated when he remembered her words, defending him in front of Atul. And then, those warm words that she'd used for Atul, thanking him. He felt a sting in his heart when he realised that Atul was so close to Riddhima. As the scenes from the office played in his mind, he felt the pain grow in his heart. It felt as if this was an excruciating feeling, that was taking over him. Immediately he stopped the car with a jerk, and thanks to his stars, it was a red light.

"Riddhima, ek baat poochhu, sach sach jawaab dogi?", Armaan asked out of the blue, while Riddhima nodded, still busy with her file.

"Tumhe kabhi pyaar hua hai?", he fired his question. Riddhima jerked out of her file, as she heard him. It was no less than a missile that had been let out on her, as she looked at him in amazement.

"Sach batana Riddhima. Do you love someone? Have you ever been in love?", he asked again.

"Umm... Mallik, meri personal life...", Riddhima had started to speak, but Armaan placed his hand on her lips.

"I know ki ye question thoda personal hai, and its your life. Par mere liye ye jaan na bohut zaruri hai. Its like i need to know your answer, bas", Armaan said and removed his hand, as he gazed her face for an answer.

"Kyun? Aisa kya ho gaya Mallik ki ye sawaal tumhare liye itna zaruri ban gaya? Humein mile time hie kitna hua hai, and we're not even friends for that matter. To meri life ki itni important baat jaan ne mein tumhe kya interest hai?", Riddhima questioned him, and he turned his face away.

"Simple si baat hai Mallik, tum mujhe mere question ka answer doge, to tumhe tumhara answer mil jayega", she said. Just then the lights turned green, and Armaan started the car. This time, Riddhima was stealing glances and looking at Armaan, trying to figure what had happened a while ago. Whereas Armaan was looking straight ahead, avoiding her eyes, deep in a conversation with himself.

'Crap! Armaan tu itna pagal kaise ho sakta hai? Kya zarurat thi us se seedhe seedhe ye sawaal karne ki? Ab jo usne poochha wo bhi sahi hai. Par main useh kya jawaab du, jab mujhe khudko nai pata ki sachayi kya hai. Kaise kahu Riddhima se ki jabse tumse mila hoon, kuch to hai jiski wajah se main tumhari taraf khichta chala jata hoon. Koi aisi cheez hai, jiski wajah se tumse judi har baat meri priority hoti hai. Kyun tumhare aur mere beech mein ye invisible bond hai, jo tum bhi feel karti ho Riddhima, chahe tum maano ya nahi? Par abhi mujhe tumhara jawaab chahiye, kya kahu main tumse?', with this, they reached the Mallik Empires.

Armaan and Riddhima entered the building, and Riddhima was left amazed rooted to her place. It was a beautiful place, no less than a top class hotel in its looks. It was designed beautifully and attractively. The interiors of the office were very welcoming. There were pots of plants, sober looking lights, that glimmered to give way, waterfalls in a few places, and certain other things. The place was very lively, and Riddhima had a feeling that people would love to work here.

"Erm, chale", Armaan spoke after a few minutes.

"Hmm, oh haan, sorry. Actually this place is beautiful. The whole thing, its awesome", Riddhima said with a genuine smile, forgetting that they were on awkward terms right now. Armaan saw her genuineness, and was about to reply her, when they were interrupted.

"Kyun na ho awesome, after all hamare boss ka jo idea hai yahaan ki designing ka", a young man came forward.

"Malhotra, ye Rishi hai, mera assistant, aur Rishi, ye hain Miss Riddhima Malhotra. Inhe office mein kuch kaam hai, and you will make sure that she's comfortable", Armaan introduced her. Rishi forwarded his hand, and Riddhima shook it.

"Miss Malhotra ko kaun nahi jaanta? Infact i am lucky ki i've got an oppurtunity to work with you. And trust me, mere saath kaam karke aap bhi yehi kahengi", Rishi grinned.

"Uske kiye mujhe aapke saath kaam karne ki kya zarurat hai. Main to abhi bhi keh sakti hoon, ki you are lucky to work with me", Riddhima smirked, while Rishi gaped at her.

Armaan smiled seeing this, and felt proud for choosing the right person to work with Riddhima. He knew Rishi was a harmless flirt, and Riddhima would be comfortable with him. But then his thoughts caught another train. Riddhima was fine with Rishi's flirting, so what was wrong with him? Why did she react differently to his words and actions? Back in her cabin, he'd also tried to get on good terms with her, by his small funny talk, but she'd gotten super serious. What was it in him that repelled her? With this, he felt a pang of jealousy when he saw her talk comfortably to Rishi, to whom she was explaining her work right now, with a smile adorning her lips. He would have to talk to Rishi later on about it. Back to the present, Armaan coughed slightly to make his presence known.

"Saara din yehi entrance pe khade rehne ka plan na ho, to office ke andar chalein?", Armaan asked, Riddhima nodded and the three of them made way inside. Riddhima noticed that as they crossed people, everyone greeted Armaan very warmly. With many of them, he stood for a few seconds to ask about their life. Riddhima admired the love each of the employees held for him. This sure was an ideal place for work. Armaan asked them to go ahead, he had to make a call and then he would join them.  Riddhima asked Rishi as they were walking,

"Mr Rishi, aap keh rahe they ki office ki designing ka idea aapke boss ka hai. To kya Mr Mallik ko in sab ka bhi shauk hai? You know, this is actually one of the most equisite places that i've ever been to. It has that totally sophisticated and serene look"

"Depend karta hai, ki aap kis Mr Mallik ki baat kar rahi hain Miss Malhotra", Rishi replied.

"Matlab?", Riddhima got confused.

"Matlab ki is office mein 3 Mr Mallik hain na Miss Malhotra...", he was about to speak, but Riddhima cut him.

"Er... Mr Rishi, it would be better if you could call me Miss Riddhima (Rishi looked at her confused) wo actually... baat ye hai ki... Miss Malhotra sounds a bit weird", Riddhima replied.

"Jaisa aap theek samjhein, Miss Riddhima. To main kahaan tha, haan, un 3 Malliks mein se hum sabke pyaare, sabse chhote Mr Mallik, yaani ki Armaan sir ne office ki designing ki hai", he ended just when Armaan also joined them.

"Sorry, wo thoda time lag gaya. Anyways, kya baatein chal rahi thi?", he asked.

"Kuch nai sir, bas Miss Riddhima aapki taareef kar rahi thi. Unhe ye office ke interiors bohut pasand aaye. Infact sir main to suggest karunga ki aapko hie inke office ko, ya inke ghar ko redecorate karna chahiye, kya kehti hai aap?", he threw the ball to Riddhima.

"Not a bad idea actually. Jab main renovation ka sochungi, i'll remember you Mallik", Riddhima smiled just a teeny weeny bit, and Armaan blushed at being complimented. Riddhima saw his blush, and giggled, while Armaan ran his hand in his hair. Their interaction was broken when they heard Rishi call,

"Aaeeye Miss Riddhima, aap apna kaam yahaan sir ke cabin mein baithke kijiyega", with that, they entered Armaan's cabin, and Riddhima was left standing rooted to her place. If she had felt the office had beautiful interiors, then right now she lacked words to appreciate this room. It was a big room, infact a very very big room, that carried an ethereal look. The room was large and spacious, and it was done up in beautiful purple and white colours. Everything was in shades of different purple and white. The purple colour and its shades were not too dark, but had a royal look. The white colour wasnt just any plain white, it had a glow and glimmer in it, such that its simplicity contrasted with the vibrancy of purple. The furniture, that was made of similar colours, highlighted the beauty of the room. Riddhima just couldnt believe it was a working cabin, no, this couldnt be true.

"Miss Riddhima, kuch to bataeeye, kaisa laga aapko hamare boss ka cabin?", Rishi smiled seeing her dazed expressions.

"I am speechless Mr Rishi. Aapke boss sachi bohut bohut talented hain. I mean i am totally in love with this room. Itna pyaara room, main to saara din baithke isko nihaarti rahoon. Yahaan kaam hota kaise hoga?", Riddhima said, still captivated.

"Well, yehi to hai hamare boss ka jadu. Aur ab aaj aapko bhi yehi kaam karna hai. Aap yahaan couch per settle ho jaeeye aur shuru kijiye kaam. Main ek ek karke un employees ko bhejta hoon, jo hamare senior boss ke saath us project per they. Aap unse jo chahein poochh sakti hain", saying this, Rishi exited, while Riddhima noticed that Armaan was happy about something and smiling. She questioned him with her eyes, he just shook his head and went to his seat.

After a few seconds, one by one employees kept coming, and Riddhima kept questioning them and making notes side by side. Armaan continued his work, but in between, he stole glances to look at her. She was dressed in blue cargo pants, and a white sleeveless top. She had no make-up at all, and just a blue watch for accessory. She'd tied her hair in a high pony, and her eyes were hidden behind those specks. The seriousness that she bore on her face was what held his attention. She was deeply lost in her work, thankfully for him, as she didnt notice him looking at her.

Riddhima just asked for a cup of coffee during the whole time. She worked continuously without a break, asking all types of questions, getting every single detail. Finally when it was late in the evening, Armaan asked her to stop now, as it was enough for the day.

"Wo aaj late start kiya na, isliye socha late tak kaam karungi, but i agree in sabka ghar jaane ka time hai. Waise bhi zaada log nahi bache, i'll deal with them tomorrow"

"Tum kal bhi yahaan aaogi?", Armaan questioned in surprise.

"Haan, kyun?"

"Le beta Armaan, ek din ka kaam aur gaya. Na aaj kuch dhang se kiya, na kal kar payega", Armaan muttered to himself.

"Tumne kuch kaha Mallik?", Riddhima raised her eyebrows.

"Nahi nahi, main kaha kuch keh sakta hoon Miss Malhotra se (he grinned) Achha wo sab chhodo, chalo main tumhe drop kar deta hoon", Armaan said.

"Nai main driver bula lungi..."

"Koi zarurat nai hai. Main nikal raha hoon na, chhod dunga. Aur main na nahi sununga, ab chalo bhi"

In the car, Armaan remembered that she hadnt eaten anything since morning.

"Malhotra, am taking you to eat something, tumne subah se kuch nahi khaya hai. You need to have something"

"Nahi Mallik, main seedhe ghar jaoongi. Leo mera wait kar raha hoga. If i eat now, to dinner nahi kar paoongi..."

"Main kuch nahi sun raha. Aur kuch nahi to atleast have a small snack. And i wont take a no, come what may. You dont exactly have a choice, because am telling you, not asking. Waise bhi tumhe kuch ho gaya, beemar wagerah ho gayi, to case to mujh per hie hoga na. And tum na hui to mera case kaun ladega? Waise bhi apna case tum khud ladogi, aur tumhare against jeetega kaun? So main risk nahi lene wala, samjhi", Armaan continued his banter, and Riddhima couldnt do anything but nod at his suggestion.

They went to a small cafe nearby, which Armaan told was his favourite hang out on his way back to home. They both ordered coffee and a sandwich, which they hogged on as soon as it arrived. Riddhima hadnt realised how famished she was, until she was munching into the hot sandwich, along with sips of the strong coffee, just her taste. Sitting in the small cozy cafe, Armaan recalled his conversation with Rishi during lunch time in the canteen.

"Yaar Rishi, aisa kya jadoo chalata hai tu ladkiyon pe, hamare office ki bhi sab ladkiyaan fida hain tujhpe?"

"Boss, aap meri taang kheench rahe ho, haina? Par chalo main phir bhi bata deta hoon. In sab ka to pata nahi, lekin main sirf ek ladki pe fida hoon, Indira Sharma, meri pyaari hitler"

"Pyaari hitler???", Armaan asked.

"Haan boss, poori duniya ke liye wo hitler hai. Badi sakhti se pesh aati hai sabke saath, hasi to useh aati hie nahi lekin gussa hamesha naak pe rehta hai, aur bharosa, bharosa to kisi pe bhi nahi karti. Par maine useh Indira ke roop mein dekha hai. Jab wo dil se khush hoti hai kyunki uska parivar khush hota hai, ya dil se roti hai jab wo log uski kadar nahi karte, maine dekha hai Indira ko, jab wo darti hai, ki kahin apne pyaare Ishan ko fail na karde, kahi Ishan ye na soche ki uski bua ne uske liye kuch nahi kiya. Maine useh uske dar, uski insecurities, uski problem, uski struggle, in sabke saath dekha hai, jab wo asli Indira in sabke khilaf lad rahi hoti hai. Bilkul bachchi ban jati hai wo boss, useh bhi sahare ki zarurat padti hai, aur main khushnaseeb hoon ki wo mujhe is layak samajhti hai ki mujhse apni zindagi share kar sake. Boss, bohut kuch saha hai usne, bohut dukh dekhe hain, aur akele un sabka saamna bhi kiya hai, chhoti si age mein bohut badi ho gayi thi wo. Usko dekh kar mujhe apni life ki problems bohut chhoti lagti hain. Ulte mera to mann karta hai ki uski bhi sari problems khatam kardu, useh dukh mein nahi dekha jata. Lagta hai uski sari takleef mujhe mil jaaye, aur wo bas khush rahe, hamesha muskurati huyi. Isiliye to boss, hamesha tang karta rehta hoon main useh. Pehle to wo irritate hoti thi, lekin phir useh meri aadat si pad gayi. Ab jab wo gussa hone ka naatak karti hai, usmein uski ek muskurahat chhupi hoti hai, ek pyaari si hasi, jiske liye main zindagi bhar uski daant khaane ko taiyyar hoon. Pehle uski zindagi mein sirf do log sabse important they, Ishan, aur uski pados wali amma, jinke hone se useh khushi milti thi. Par ab main bhi unmein se ek hoon, uski life ka hissa hoon main boss. Bohut bohut pyaar karta hoon main apni makaan maalkin ji se, aur wo is baat ko nahi maanegi, lekin useh bhi meri aadat ho chuki hai, pyaar ho gaya hai meri pyaari makaan maalkin ji ko. Tabhi to, apna copy right laga rakha hai. Na koi unhe 'makaan maalkin ji' ke naam se chida sakta hai, aur na hie koi mujhe 'kirayedaar ji' ya 'mr kirayedar' kehkar bula sakta hai. Sabse alag hain meri 'makaan maalkin ji', nai", Rishi finished in a daze.


Armaan recalled Rishi's words, it was as if he had narrated Riddhima's life, with a few changes. Rishi and Indira were in love, deeply, and Rishi was sure of it. Why? Because he'd mentioned the symptoms to Armaan as well. Just then something striked Armaan.

"Er Malhotra, tumne Rishi ko tumhe Miss Malhotra bulane se kyun mana kiya???", Armaan asked nervously. Riddhima stiffened at the question thrown to her, and Armaan sensed it. So it was definitely something deeper.

"Jab main call karke wapis aaya, i had heard you tell him not to call you Miss Malhotra. I saw the awkwardness on your face. Dekha jaye to kisi ko naam se bulaya jaye, to zaada personal lagta hai. Par pata nahi kyun, tumhare case mein sab ulta hai. Mujhe aisa kyun lagta hai ki tumhe tumhare surname se bulana zaada personal hai...", Armaan continued.

"Mallik, tumhari thoughts ki train aise hie faltu mein bohut tez chalti hai. Bring it to halt. Maine Mr Rishi ko mana kiya because the name felt just too weird. Aur koi reason nahi hai...", Riddhima replied casually.

"Ok, maan liya. Lekin Malhotra, tumne ek baat per dhyaan diya? Rishi ko tum uske naam ke saath bhi Mr Rishi bulati ho, and mujhe, mere to kabhi surname ke saath Mr nahi lagaya. Tumhare liye main hamesha se Mallik tha. Jaise kisi apne ko pyaar se bula rahi ho...", he was cut in by Riddhima.

"Hold hold hold, ye kya bakwaas kiye ja rahe ho Mallik. What apnapan and pyaar...", Riddhima baffled.

"Achha, ye tum bhi jaanti ho, aur main bhi, ki kuch to hai...", Armaan was again cut midway.

"Mallik, tum pagal to nahi ho gaye ho na? Aaj kya behki behki si baatein kar rahe ho?", Riddhima sounded irritated.

"Tumne subah poochha tha mujhse, ki mujhe tumhari personal life mein itna interest kyun hai. Well, i have your answer. Jis din se hum miley hain Riddhima, us din se maine feel kiya hai that you are different. You have been a mystery for me, ek paheli. Kabse tumhe solve karne ki koshish kar raha hoon. Tumne life mein bohut kuch dekha hai, bohut problems face ki hain, uske baavjood bhi itna kuch achieve kiya, i really respect it. Jo position tumne achieve ki hai, wo sirf tumhari mehnat ka result hai. All of it, its tremendous, everything about you. And bas tumhe samajhne ke chakkar mein hie, main tumse subah wo sawaal poochh baitha", Armaan let it all out, and saw her look at him intently.

"Kuch paheliyaan na suljhaayi jaayein to hie behtar hota hai, sabke liye. Kyunki aisi paheliyaan agar sabke saamne khul jati hain, to dard aur takleef ke alawa kuch nahi deti", she looked into his eyes as she spoke.

"Shayad mujhe koi farak nahi padta, ki un paheliyon ko kholne ka result kya hoga...", Armaan did not break their eye lock.

"Tumhe fark nahi padta, par doosro ki zindagi mein toofan aa jayega Mallik...", she tried to speak but he cut her.

"To phir ye meri zimmewari hogi ki us toofan ko shaant bhi main hie karunga", Riddhima saw the determination in his eyes, and it touched something deep in her heart, shaking her to the core.

"Paheliyaan hoti hie suljhaane ke liye hain, right? Well, tumhari paheli ka bhi simple sa jawaab hai. Haan, mujhe pyaar hua tha, par ye purani baat hai. Useh pyaar keh sakte hain ya nahi, wo mujhe nahi pata. Tab main thi hie itni chhoti, bachchi thi main, us samay ki feelings ko pyaar kehna galat hoga. Bas itna jaanti hoon ki tab wo feeling mere liye bohut special thi, aur us insaan ke bohut maayne they meri zindagi mein..."

"Aur ab???", Armaan's life depended on this question.

"Ab, ab pata nahi Mallik. Is sawaal ka jawaab to main khud bhi nahi jaanti. Nahi jaanti ki main ab bhi uske liye kuch feel karti hoon ya nahi, nahi jaanti ki jis feeling ko main tab pyaar nahi keh saki, useh aaj kya kahungi...", she paused.

"Aur agar wo insaan tumhare saamne aa gaya to?", Armaan held his breath.

"Wo mere saamne aa chuka hai,  aur us samay usmein mujhe mera past dikhta hai. Uske chehre mein dikhti hai mujhe wo sabhi takleefein, wo dukh jinke liye jaane anjaane hie sahi, kuch had tak wo zimmedar tha. Wo sab yaadein tazi ho jati hain jinhe main peechhe chhod aayi hoon. Par phir bhi, kuch to hai, koi ek aisa andekha khichaav, jo  mujhe uski taraf khinchta hai. Kuch hai uske aur mere beech, jiski wajah se main uske aas pass hone par alag hie react karti hoon, bilkul apne nature se opposite. Lekin in sabke baavjood, mujhe itna pata hai, ki past mein jo bhi raha ho, main us se ab pyaar nahi karti. Ab to main kisi se bhi pyaar nahi karti. Pyaar ki meri zindagi mein koi jagah nahi hai. Itni kadwahat hai mere dil mein, poori duniya ke liye, ki pyaar usmein kabhi jagah bana hie nahi sakta. Mere liye pyaar ka matlab sirf wo thode se log hain, jo meri zindagi mein ahmiyat rakhte hain, bas...", Riddhima sighed.

"Wo ladka tha kaun, i mean uska naam...", Armaan's question was left incomplete as Riddhima got up.

"I think humein chalna chahiye Mallik. Its getting late. Aaj ke liye, and i think aane wale kafi time tak ke liye, itni baatein bohut hain", Riddhima left even before Armaan could say something. He cleared the bill, and left to follow her. He didnt find her near the car, and looking around, saw her sitting on the bench in the garden of the cafe. He went to her, and she immediately wiped the tear thar fell from her eye. Armaan hated himself for being responsible for that tear, for making her remember her past and that guy, whom he hated immediately as soon as she'd mentioned him. Armaan forwarded his hand, and luckily, Riddhima took it as she got up.

"Tumse sirf ek request hai, is sabke baare mein Anjali ko mat batana. Wo faltu mein tension le legi", Riddhima requested him softly, and nodded his head.

"Promise?", she asked, and Armaan saw the plead in her eyes. He put his other hand also on hers, and squeezed it. She saw the assurance in his eyes, and walked next to him to the car. After this, both of them remained silent as he drove. Outside her house, she muttered a small thank you and got out. Armaan kept looking at her retreating back until she disappeared from his eyes, but she didnt turn even once.

"Anjie hie wo ek insaan thi jo mujhe tumhare past ke baare mein kuch bata sakti thi, par tumne wo raasta bhi band kar dia. Lekin koi baat nahi, tumhari sab problems ko to main khatam karke hie rahunga, tum chaho ya na chaho", Armaan promised himself, and left from there.

Part 9 (ArSh)

But just in time, as a God sent angel, Atul came back in the cabin.

"Uh Shee... koi problem hai?", he spoke as he felt the tension in the atmosphere.

"Nai to, main aur Mallik case ke baare mein baat kar rahe they, to ek point tha witnesses ka, jahaan hum agree nahi kar rahe they, bas wahi discuss kar rahe they. Ab main ek lawyer ke point of view se sochti hoon, and ye businessman ke, to differences aa hie jaate hain na. Anyways tum batao kuch kaam tha?", Shilpa covered up.
Armaan wondered in amazement at her smooth lie. Had he not known the truth, he also would've believed her, no wonder Atul took her word.

"Haan, maine apne cases dekh liye hain, and am gonna work on them. Meanwhile ye tumhare case ka material, Mr Mallik wala. I think you should get going and get the witnesses ready. Do din baad case ki pehli hearing hai", Atul handed her a file.

"Thanks so much Atul. I know how much we are all under this deadline. I'll now hurry up with the witnesses. Mallik, we'll have to go by my way. I need to question your employees, if its ok?", Shilpa asked him.

"Haan haan kyun nahi, i am sure they'll be glad to help you. Tumne pehle kyun nahi bataya ki tum mere employees ko witness banane wali ho?", Armaan asked her back in amusement, while Shilpa gave him the 'are-you-nuts?' expression, which he failed to understand.

"Er... wo isliye na Mallik... kyunki... haan kyunki hamari argument mein tumne ye suna hie nahi ki witnesses tumhare log honge. Hamari argument, remember, about the witnesses, jo Atul ke aane se pehle ho rahi thi, yaad aaya kuch", Shilpa made weird expressions to Armaan, and finally he did understand.

"Haan haan wo argument, tum bhi na, kitna argue karti ho... cheh!", Armaan laughed a little to cover his mistake.

"Ok guys, i think tum logon ko nikalna chahiye", Atul finally sent them out. Shilpa asked Armaan to go ahead, she would just join him. After a few seconds had passed, Armaan realised that he'd left his cell in the cabin. He went back to get it, but stopped at the gate when he heard voices from inside.

"Shee, are you sure you wanna do it? I know its very tough for you. If you want, i can go to talk to the witnesses. You dont have to do it all", Atul was saying to Shilpa.

"Nai Atul, sachi, mujhe koi problem nahi hai. And Mallik is also fine, not the types that we hear in the news. He hasnt made even a single move towards me till now. And his attitude, i am sure i can take care of it for a few days", Armaan heard Shilpa's reply. He peeped in a little, and saw both of them standing next to each other.

"Well, choice tumhari hai, i just hope you'll be fine", Atul said softly.

"Awww (saying this Shilpa hugged him, who hugged her back) Atul, i will be fine, sachi, please khudko itni tension mat do. Aur ek baat, thank you, thank you very much, kabhi kuch bhi poochhe bina hamesha mere decision ko respect karne ke liye, for always being there without any doubts in your heart, kabhi na poochhne ke liye, ki maine kya kyun kiya, for standing for me despite everything", Shilpa told him, as she quickly wiped a tear.

"Haan haan theek hai, ja. Just take care, ok? Jaate jaate ek baat sunti ja, mujhse jhooth bolne ki koshish mat kiya kar (she looked at him confusingly) wo argument, tere aur Armaan ke beech, about the witnesses (she bit her tongue) main jaanta hoon tu jhooth bol rahi thi. Armaan ka slip of tongue to baad mein tha, us se pehle hie main sach samajh gaya tha. So next time mujhse hoshiyari mat karna. And Shee, personally, i liked your decision, poori story sun ne main baad mein aaoonga, but i think tune sahi kiya. Leo is a great person, i'm sure he'll be a part of our family soon", at this, Shilpa flung her arms around Atul, and kissed him on his cheek.

"Love you Atul"

"Love you too Shee, ab nikal bhi ja na"

Shilpa came out of the door, and bumped into Armaan.

"Wo main apna cell andar bhool gaya tha, wo lena hai", Armaan said. They picked up his cell, and finally made an exit. Outside the office, Armaan said that they would take his car. Shilpa argued that she had to come back as well, but Armaan assured her that he would drop her. She didnt want to waste time in arguing, so she agreed with him.

It was a silent drive to the Mallik empires. Shilpa was busy reading her file, whereas Armaan was stealing glances to look at her. His mind was in a turmoil as he recalled Atul's words. Atul had referred to Shilpa's discomfort in taking this case, after all Shilpa ko kya problem hai Malliks se? But he felt elated when he remembered her words, defending him in front of Atul. And then, those warm words that she'd used for Atul, thanking him. He felt a sting in his heart when he realised that Atul was so close to Shilpa. As the scenes from the office played in his mind, he felt the pain grow in his heart. It felt as if this was an excruciating feeling, that was taking over him. Immediately he stopped the car with a jerk, and thanks to his stars, it was a red light.

"Shilpa, ek baat poochhu, sach sach jawaab dogi?", Armaan asked out of the blue, while Shilpa nodded, still busy with her file.

"Tumhe kabhi pyaar hua hai?", he fired his question. Shilpa jerked out of her file, as she heard him. It was no less than a missile that had been let out on her, as she looked at him in amazement.

"Sach batana Shilpa. Do you love someone? Have you ever been in love?", he asked again.

"Umm... Mallik, meri personal life...", Shilpa had started to speak, but Armaan placed his hand on her lips.

"I know ki ye question thoda personal hai, and its your life. Par mere liye ye jaan na bohut zaruri hai. Its like i need to know your answer, bas", Armaan said and removed his hand, as he gazed her face for an answer.

"Kyun? Aisa kya ho gaya Mallik ki ye sawaal tumhare liye itna zaruri ban gaya? Humein mile time hie kitna hua hai, and we're not even friends for that matter. To meri life ki itni important baat jaan ne mein tumhe kya interest hai?", Shilpa questioned him, and he turned his face away.

"Simple si baat hai Mallik, tum mujhe mere question ka answer doge, to tumhe tumhara answer mil jayega", she said. Just then the lights turned green, and Armaan started the car. This time, Shilpa was stealing glances and looking at Armaan, trying to figure what had happened a while ago. Whereas Armaan was looking straight ahead, avoiding her eyes, deep in a conversation with himself.

'Crap! Armaan tu itna pagal kaise ho sakta hai? Kya zarurat thi us se seedhe seedhe ye sawaal karne ki? Ab jo usne poochha wo bhi sahi hai. Par main useh kya jawaab du, jab mujhe khudko nai pata ki sachayi kya hai. Kaise kahu Shilpa se ki jabse tumse mila hoon, kuch to hai jiski wajah se main tumhari taraf khichta chala jata hoon. Koi aisi cheez hai, jiski wajah se tumse judi har baat meri priority hoti hai. Kyun tumhare aur mere beech mein ye invisible bond hai, jo tum bhi feel karti ho Shilpa, chahe tum maano ya nahi? Par abhi mujhe tumhara jawaab chahiye, kya kahu main tumse?', with this, they reached the Mallik Empires.

Armaan and Shilpa entered the building, and Shilpa was left amazed rooted to her place. It was a beautiful place, no less than a top class hotel in its looks. It was designed beautifully and attractively. The interiors of the office were very welcoming. There were pots of plants, sober looking lights, that glimmered to give way, waterfalls in a few places, and certain other things. The place was very lively, and Shilpa had a feeling that people would love to work here.

"Erm, chale", Armaan spoke after a few minutes.

"Hmm, oh haan, sorry. Actually this place is beautiful. The whole thing, its awesome", Shilpa said with a genuine smile, forgetting that they were on awkward terms right now. Armaan saw her genuineness, and was about to reply her, when they were interrupted.

"Kyun na ho awesome, after all hamare boss ka jo idea hai yahaan ki designing ka", a young man came forward.

"Malhotra, ye Rishi hai, mera assistant, aur Rishi, ye hain Miss Shilpa Malhotra. Inhe office mein kuch kaam hai, and you will make sure that she's comfortable", Armaan introduced her. Rishi forwarded his hand, and Shilpa shook it.

"Miss Malhotra ko kaun nahi jaanta? Infact i am lucky ki i've got an oppurtunity to work with you. And trust me, mere saath kaam karke aap bhi yehi kahengi", Rishi grinned.

"Uske kiye mujhe aapke saath kaam karne ki kya zarurat hai. Main to abhi bhi keh sakti hoon, ki you are lucky to work with me", Shilpa smirked, while Rishi gaped at her.

Armaan smiled seeing this, and felt proud for choosing the right person to work with Shilpa. He knew Rishi was a harmless flirt, and Shilpa would be comfortable with him. But then his thoughts caught another train. Shilpa was fine with Rishi's flirting, so what was wrong with him? Why did she react differently to his words and actions? Back in her cabin, he'd also tried to get on good terms with her, by his small funny talk, but she'd gotten super serious. What was it in him that repelled her? With this, he felt a pang of jealousy when he saw her talk comfortably to Rishi, to whom she was explaining her work right now, with a smile adorning her lips. He would have to talk to Rishi later on about it. Back to the present, Armaan coughed slightly to make his presence known.

"Saara din yehi entrance pe khade rehne ka plan na ho, to office ke andar chalein?", Armaan asked, Shilpa nodded and the three of them made way inside. Shilpa noticed that as they crossed people, everyone greeted Armaan very warmly. With many of them, he stood for a few seconds to ask about their life. Shilpa admired the love each of the employees held for him. This sure was an ideal place for work. Armaan asked them to go ahead, he had to make a call and then he would join them.  Shilpa asked Rishi as they were walking,

"Mr Rishi, aap keh rahe they ki office ki designing ka idea aapke boss ka hai. To kya Mr Mallik ko in sab ka bhi shauk hai? You know, this is actually one of the most equisite places that i've ever been to. It has that totally sophisticated and serene look"

"Depend karta hai, ki aap kis Mr Mallik ki baat kar rahi hain Miss Malhotra", Rishi replied.

"Matlab?", Shilpa got confused.

"Matlab ki is office mein 3 Mr Mallik hain na Miss Malhotra...", he was about to speak, but Shilpa cut him.

"Er... Mr Rishi, it would be better if you could call me Miss Shilpa (Rishi looked at her confused) wo actually... baat ye hai ki... Miss Malhotra sounds a bit weird", Shilpa replied.

"Jaisa aap theek samjhein, Miss Shilpa. To main kahaan tha, haan, un 3 Malliks mein se hum sabke pyaare, sabse chhote Mr Mallik, yaani ki Armaan sir ne office ki designing ki hai", he ended just when Armaan also joined them.

"Sorry, wo thoda time lag gaya. Anyways, kya baatein chal rahi thi?", he asked.

"Kuch nai sir, bas Miss Shilpa aapki taareef kar rahi thi. Unhe ye office ke interiors bohut pasand aaye. Infact sir main to suggest karunga ki aapko hie inke office ko, ya inke ghar ko redecorate karna chahiye, kya kehti hai aap?", he threw the ball to Shilpa.

"Not a bad idea actually. Jab main renovation ka sochungi, i'll remember you Mallik", Shilpa smiled just a teeny weeny bit, and Armaan blushed at being complimented. Shilpa saw his blush, and giggled, while Armaan ran his hand in his hair. Their interaction was broken when they heard Rishi call,

"Aaeeye Miss Shilpa, aap apna kaam yahaan sir ke cabin mein baithke kijiyega", with that, they entered Armaan's cabin, and Shilpa was left standing rooted to her place. If she had felt the office had beautiful interiors, then right now she lacked words to appreciate this room. It was a big room, infact a very very big room, that carried an ethereal look. The room was large and spacious, and it was done up in beautiful purple and white colours. Everything was in shades of different purple and white. The purple colour and its shades were not too dark, but had a royal look. The white colour wasnt just any plain white, it had a glow and glimmer in it, such that its simplicity contrasted with the vibrancy of purple. The furniture, that was made of similar colours, highlighted the beauty of the room. Shilpa just couldnt believe it was a working cabin, no, this couldnt be true.

"Miss Shilpa, kuch to bataeeye, kaisa laga aapko hamare boss ka cabin?", Rishi smiled seeing her dazed expressions.

"I am speechless Mr Rishi. Aapke boss sachi bohut bohut talented hain. I mean i am totally in love with this room. Itna pyaara room, main to saara din baithke isko nihaarti rahoon. Yahaan kaam hota kaise hoga?", Shilpa said, still captivated.

"Well, yehi to hai hamare boss ka jadu. Aur ab aaj aapko bhi yehi kaam karna hai. Aap yahaan couch per settle ho jaeeye aur shuru kijiye kaam. Main ek ek karke un employees ko bhejta hoon, jo hamare senior boss ke saath us project per they. Aap unse jo chahein poochh sakti hain", saying this, Rishi exited, while Shilpa noticed that Armaan was happy about something and smiling. She questioned him with her eyes, he just shook his head and went to his seat.

After a few seconds, one by one employees kept coming, and Shilpa kept questioning them and making notes side by side. Armaan continued his work, but in between, he stole glances to look at her. She was dressed in blue cargo pants, and a white sleeveless top. She had no make-up at all, and just a blue watch for accessory. She'd tied her hair in a high pony, and her eyes were hidden behind those specks. The seriousness that she bore on her face was what held his attention. She was deeply lost in her work, thankfully for him, as she didnt notice him looking at her.

Shilpa just asked for a cup of coffee during the whole time. She worked continuously without a break, asking all types of questions, getting every single detail. Finally when it was late in the evening, Armaan asked her to stop now, as it was enough for the day.

"Wo aaj late start kiya na, isliye socha late tak kaam karungi, but i agree in sabka ghar jaane ka time hai. Waise bhi zaada log nahi bache, i'll deal with them tomorrow"

"Tum kal bhi yahaan aaogi?", Armaan questioned in surprise.

"Haan, kyun?"

"Le beta Armaan, ek din ka kaam aur gaya. Na aaj kuch dhang se kiya, na kal kar payega", Armaan muttered to himself.

"Tumne kuch kaha Mallik?", Shilpa raised her eyebrows.

"Nahi nahi, main kaha kuch keh sakta hoon Miss Malhotra se (he grinned) Achha wo sab chhodo, chalo main tumhe drop kar deta hoon", Armaan said.

"Nai main driver bula lungi..."

"Koi zarurat nai hai. Main nikal raha hoon na, chhod dunga. Aur main na nahi sununga, ab chalo bhi"

In the car, Armaan remembered that she hadnt eaten anything since morning.

"Malhotra, am taking you to eat something, tumne subah se kuch nahi khaya hai. You need to have something"

"Nahi Mallik, main seedhe ghar jaoongi. Leo mera wait kar raha hoga. If i eat now, to dinner nahi kar paoongi..."

"Main kuch nahi sun raha. Aur kuch nahi to atleast have a small snack. And i wont take a no, come what may. You dont exactly have a choice, because am telling you, not asking. Waise bhi tumhe kuch ho gaya, beemar wagerah ho gayi, to case to mujh per hie hoga na. And tum na hui to mera case kaun ladega? Waise bhi apna case tum khud ladogi, aur tumhare against jeetega kaun? So main risk nahi lene wala, samjhi", Armaan continued his banter, and Shilpa couldnt do anything but nod at his suggestion.

They went to a small cafe nearby, which Armaan told was his favourite hang out on his way back to home. They both ordered coffee and a sandwich, which they hogged on as soon as it arrived. Shilpa hadnt realised how famished she was, until she was munching into the hot sandwich, along with sips of the strong coffee, just her taste. Sitting in the small cozy cafe, Armaan recalled his conversation with Rishi during lunch time in the canteen.

"Yaar Rishi, aisa kya jadoo chalata hai tu ladkiyon pe, hamare office ki bhi sab ladkiyaan fida hain tujhpe?"

"Boss, aap meri taang kheench rahe ho, haina? Par chalo main phir bhi bata deta hoon. In sab ka to pata nahi, lekin main sirf ek ladki pe fida hoon, Indira Sharma, meri pyaari hitler"

"Pyaari hitler???", Armaan asked.

"Haan boss, poori duniya ke liye wo hitler hai. Badi sakhti se pesh aati hai sabke saath, hasi to useh aati hie nahi lekin gussa hamesha naak pe rehta hai, aur bharosa, bharosa to kisi pe bhi nahi karti. Par maine useh Indira ke roop mein dekha hai. Jab wo dil se khush hoti hai kyunki uska parivar khush hota hai, ya dil se roti hai jab wo log uski kadar nahi karte, maine dekha hai Indira ko, jab wo darti hai, ki kahin apne pyaare Ishan ko fail na karde, kahi Ishan ye na soche ki uski bua ne uske liye kuch nahi kiya. Maine useh uske dar, uski insecurities, uski problem, uski struggle, in sabke saath dekha hai, jab wo asli Indira in sabke khilaf lad rahi hoti hai. Bilkul bachchi ban jati hai wo boss, useh bhi sahare ki zarurat padti hai, aur main khushnaseeb hoon ki wo mujhe is layak samajhti hai ki mujhse apni zindagi share kar sake. Boss, bohut kuch saha hai usne, bohut dukh dekhe hain, aur akele un sabka saamna bhi kiya hai, chhoti si age mein bohut badi ho gayi thi wo. Usko dekh kar mujhe apni life ki problems bohut chhoti lagti hain. Ulte mera to mann karta hai ki uski bhi sari problems khatam kardu, useh dukh mein nahi dekha jata. Lagta hai uski sari takleef mujhe mil jaaye, aur wo bas khush rahe, hamesha muskurati huyi. Isiliye to boss, hamesha tang karta rehta hoon main useh. Pehle to wo irritate hoti thi, lekin phir useh meri aadat si pad gayi. Ab jab wo gussa hone ka naatak karti hai, usmein uski ek muskurahat chhupi hoti hai, ek pyaari si hasi, jiske liye main zindagi bhar uski daant khaane ko taiyyar hoon. Pehle uski zindagi mein sirf do log sabse important they, Ishan, aur uski pados wali amma, jinke hone se useh khushi milti thi. Par ab main bhi unmein se ek hoon, uski life ka hissa hoon main boss. Bohut bohut pyaar karta hoon main apni makaan maalkin ji se, aur wo is baat ko nahi maanegi, lekin useh bhi meri aadat ho chuki hai, pyaar ho gaya hai meri pyaari makaan maalkin ji ko. Tabhi to, apna copy right laga rakha hai. Na koi unhe 'makaan maalkin ji' ke naam se chida sakta hai, aur na hie koi mujhe 'kirayedaar ji' ya 'mr kirayedar' kehkar bula sakta hai. Sabse alag hain meri 'makaan maalkin ji', nai", Rishi finished in a daze.


Armaan recalled Rishi's words, it was as if he had narrated Shilpa's life, with a few changes. Rishi and Indira were in love, deeply, and Rishi was sure of it. Why? Because he'd mentioned the symptoms to Armaan as well. Just then something striked Armaan.

"Er Malhotra, tumne Rishi ko tumhe Miss Malhotra bulane se kyun mana kiya???", Armaan asked nervously. Shilpa stiffened at the question thrown to her, and Armaan sensed it. So it was definitely something deeper.

"Jab main call karke wapis aaya, i had heard you tell him not to call you Miss Malhotra. I saw the awkwardness on your face. Dekha jaye to kisi ko naam se bulaya jaye, to zaada personal lagta hai. Par pata nahi kyun, tumhare case mein sab ulta hai. Mujhe aisa kyun lagta hai ki tumhe tumhare surname se bulana zaada personal hai...", Armaan continued.

"Mallik, tumhari thoughts ki train aise hie faltu mein bohut tez chalti hai. Bring it to halt. Maine Mr Rishi ko mana kiya because the name felt just too weird. Aur koi reason nahi hai...", Shilpa replied casually.

"Ok, maan liya. Lekin Malhotra, tumne ek baat per dhyaan diya? Rishi ko tum uske naam ke saath bhi Mr Rishi bulati ho, and mujhe, mere to kabhi surname ke saath Mr nahi lagaya. Tumhare liye main hamesha se Mallik tha. Jaise kisi apne ko pyaar se bula rahi ho...", he was cut in by Shilpa.

"Hold hold hold, ye kya bakwaas kiye ja rahe ho Mallik. What apnapan and pyaar...", Shilpa baffled.

"Achha, ye tum bhi jaanti ho, aur main bhi, ki kuch to hai...", Armaan was again cut midway.

"Mallik, tum pagal to nahi ho gaye ho na? Aaj kya behki behki si baatein kar rahe ho?", Shilpa sounded irritated.

"Tumne subah poochha tha mujhse, ki mujhe tumhari personal life mein itna interest kyun hai. Well, i have your answer. Jis din se hum miley hain Shilpa, us din se maine feel kiya hai that you are different. You have been a mystery for me, ek paheli. Kabse tumhe solve karne ki koshish kar raha hoon. Tumne life mein bohut kuch dekha hai, bohut problems face ki hain, uske baavjood bhi itna kuch achieve kiya, i really respect it. Jo position tumne achieve ki hai, wo sirf tumhari mehnat ka result hai. All of it, its tremendous, everything about you. And bas tumhe samajhne ke chakkar mein hie, main tumse subah wo sawaal poochh baitha", Armaan let it all out, and saw her look at him intently.

"Kuch paheliyaan na suljhaayi jaayein to hie behtar hota hai, sabke liye. Kyunki aisi paheliyaan agar sabke saamne khul jati hain, to dard aur takleef ke alawa kuch nahi deti", she looked into his eyes as she spoke.

"Shayad mujhe koi farak nahi padta, ki un paheliyon ko kholne ka result kya hoga...", Armaan did not break their eye lock.

"Tumhe fark nahi padta, par doosro ki zindagi mein toofan aa jayega Mallik...", she tried to speak but he cut her.

"To phir ye meri zimmewari hogi ki us toofan ko shaant bhi main hie karunga", Shilpa saw the determination in his eyes, and it touched something deep in her heart, shaking her to the core.

"Paheliyaan hoti hie suljhaane ke liye hain, right? Well, tumhari paheli ka bhi simple sa jawaab hai. Haan, mujhe pyaar hua tha, par ye purani baat hai. Useh pyaar keh sakte hain ya nahi, wo mujhe nahi pata. Tab main thi hie itni chhoti, bachchi thi main, us samay ki feelings ko pyaar kehna galat hoga. Bas itna jaanti hoon ki tab wo feeling mere liye bohut special thi, aur us insaan ke bohut maayne they meri zindagi mein..."

"Aur ab???", Armaan's life depended on this question.

"Ab, ab pata nahi Mallik. Is sawaal ka jawaab to main khud bhi nahi jaanti. Nahi jaanti ki main ab bhi uske liye kuch feel karti hoon ya nahi, nahi jaanti ki jis feeling ko main tab pyaar nahi keh saki, useh aaj kya kahungi...", she paused.

"Aur agar wo insaan tumhare saamne aa gaya to?", Armaan held his breath.

"Wo mere saamne aa chuka hai,  aur us samay usmein mujhe mera past dikhta hai. Uske chehre mein dikhti hai mujhe wo sabhi takleefein, wo dukh jinke liye jaane anjaane hie sahi, kuch had tak wo zimmedar tha. Wo sab yaadein tazi ho jati hain jinhe main peechhe chhod aayi hoon. Par phir bhi, kuch to hai, koi ek aisa andekha khichaav, jo  mujhe uski taraf khinchta hai. Kuch hai uske aur mere beech, jiski wajah se main uske aas pass hone par alag hie react karti hoon, bilkul apne nature se opposite. Lekin in sabke baavjood, mujhe itna pata hai, ki past mein jo bhi raha ho, main us se ab pyaar nahi karti. Ab to main kisi se bhi pyaar nahi karti. Pyaar ki meri zindagi mein koi jagah nahi hai. Itni kadwahat hai mere dil mein, poori duniya ke liye, ki pyaar usmein kabhi jagah bana hie nahi sakta. Mere liye pyaar ka matlab sirf wo thode se log hain, jo meri zindagi mein ahmiyat rakhte hain, bas...", Shilpa sighed.

"Wo ladka tha kaun, i mean uska naam...", Armaan's question was left incomplete as Shilpa got up.

"I think humein chalna chahiye Mallik. Its getting late. Aaj ke liye, and i think aane wale kafi time tak ke liye, itni baatein bohut hain", Shilpa left even before Armaan could say something. He cleared the bill, and left to follow her. He didnt find her near the car, and looking around, saw her sitting on the bench in the garden of the cafe. He went to her, and she immediately wiped the tear thar fell from her eye. Armaan hated himself for being responsible for that tear, for making her remember her past and that guy, whom he hated immediately as soon as she'd mentioned him. Armaan forwarded his hand, and luckily, Shilpa took it as she got up.

"Tumse sirf ek request hai, is sabke baare mein Anjali ko mat batana. Wo faltu mein tension le legi", Shilpa requested him softly, and nodded his head.

"Promise?", she asked, and Armaan saw the plead in her eyes. He put his other hand also on hers, and squeezed it. She saw the assurance in his eyes, and walked next to him to the car. After this, both of them remained silent as he drove. Outside her house, she muttered a small thank you and got out. Armaan kept looking at her retreating back until she disappeared from his eyes, but she didnt turn even once.

"Anjie hie wo ek insaan thi jo mujhe tumhare past ke baare mein kuch bata sakti thi, par tumne wo raasta bhi band kar dia. Lekin koi baat nahi, tumhari sab problems ko to main khatam karke hie rahunga, tum chaho ya na chaho", Armaan promised himself, and left from there.
