Chapter 1: Life With A Pink Shade
Part 2: Unexpected turn
His face bathed in a radiant smile, a thousand exclamations of wonder and amazement went soaring to the higher skies.
With a cheeky grin, he had tentatively asked Shanky permission to drop Riddhima home. Obviously he did that to while away time with Riddhima, and understandingly, Dr.Shashank agreed lest she was home by midnight. When Shanky left, his smile widened, he was beaming.
Now wearing a deep colour of red on her cheeks, and lips curved into a bright smile, Riddhima walked beside Armaan holding his hand. She was silent, her eyes downcast, while on the contrary her heartbeats were singing to a beautiful melody and her eyes were weaving dreams of the unknown yet promising future.
Soon realising that they reached the car, Armaan was going to say something when Riddhima spoke at the same time.
All embarrassment and shyness broken at once, holding his stomach, Armaan started laughing enigmatically with himself. As if infectious, the laughter echoed from Riddhima too. A hearty laugh that alienated all the sorrows.
Albeit he controlled his laughter the moment she started laughing, he watched her with an admiration and dreamy smile. When he finally felt her compose herself as a serene smile settled on her face, he leaned his back on the front passenger's door.
Then asked, " You were saying something?"
With a smile, she walked to lean her side on the door. When Armaan turned to face her, she said with a contemplating tone, "hmm, where are we going?"
Adding with his usual smirk and dimples, "Tch, Don't worry basket. I won't kidnap you"
Being at her usual self, Riddhima folded her arms voicing his name in her famous tone,
Taking a step forward, Armaan held her by the waist and matched her tone, and winked, "Yes Basket!!!"
Lost was the world behind them. The colours of love and magic being showered on them changed from light to deep. The music of romance and love being played by cold breezes as background, changed from soft to a soul touching one.
The only constant rooted on the spot were Armaan and Riddhima, conversing with their eyes, peering through each other's soul. Tears of joy shining in their eyes, Armaan took Riddhima in a yet again tight hug.
No words required, she simply hugged him back to assure him that they were really here. She wanted to let him know that this moment really existed, and that it would not end.
They'd been through a lot and now when they were finally reunited like before, it all seemed like a dream. It was like someone would come and say, 'wake up Riddhima, you are dreaming'
She was very well acquainted to the fact that somewhere in his mind, Armaan might be having the same thoughts. So she knew that she would be there to make him believe that now their love was stronger than ever. She had caused him a lot of pain and promised herself to make up for every drop of tear.
Feeling the touch of the cold air mixing with her warmth, Armaan realised that she broke from the hug.
Shaking her head Riddhima wiped away his tears ever so gently like she would for a tiny fragile baby.
Riddhima did not miss to add with a cute teary chuckle, "Mera rotlu Armaan Mallik"'
A smile playing naughtily on his face, Armaan held her closer and they both virtually leaned their sides closer to the hood. She slowly brought her face closer to his and kissed each of his eyes timidly as if savoring the moment to make it a later beautiful memory to recollect.
Their faces were so close that it required a mere breath from any one of them to end up in a passionate kiss, when suddenly, swiftly, Armaan noticed a bike aiming their direction with full speed. Not losing any half minute to react, Armaan quickly pulled Riddhima with full force from the side towards the front of the hood.
Freezed on the spot, Riddhima stood there aghast, with her mouth in the form of an O. Tears were threatening to fall and she put a hand on her mouth to refrain from sobbing.
