half an hour has passed since the bus started its journey..and everyone since that half an hour was quiet not knowing what to speak..they were just looking at each others faces..unknowingly an awkward situation had occured between everyone in the bus..this bus trip is definetely different as compared to the last one when everyone was happy seeing arjun and arohi happy..it was so much fun last time..playing antakshri..chatting..gossiping etc..it was a cheerful trip but this time everything has changed but still nothing has changed...
sanchit who was sitting alone not having the courage to even look around was feeling like a fish out of water..being s.raj malhotra the person who till yesterday was the man ruling over the business world..for whom the arjun singhania was working..today this man after being sanchit alluhwalia doesnt even have the courage to stood in front of arjun singhania and meet his eyes..he is the one whom everyone hates...his family..his siblings..his friends..his ..his arohi..yes she also hates him but didnt know about it..sanchit shook his head bringing himself out of thoughts..he sighed and resting his head against the seat he closed his eyes cuz thats the only thing he can do ...
images of the last bus trip flashing in arjun's mind...those memories were a beautiful treasure for him now..he smiled recalling their last trip..in which he was happy ..arohi was with him..he was complete..but today he is incomplete without arohi..he has agreed for this trip just cuz he has hope...yes hope...hope that everything will be fine..hope that will bring back his arohi in his life..hope that will make arohi trust him..hope that will make arohi know him...if its a new life for arohi then the same was the case with him cuz its new life for him too where he has to do everything just for arohi that will make her remember few of her forgotten memories..living without her was like living in a hell for him..only he knew how he has spent the past 10 days without her and today he is happy..happy with this little thought of having arohi around him..what if she is not beside him or with him..atleast she is around ..thats matter the most...he turned his face and his eyes fell on sanchit..a wave of anguish ran in his body seeing his face..
"sanchit..." exclaimed arohi seeing him...the only person her eyes were searching since she gained consciousness..no matter she has lost her memory..but she was sure and thankful that she has not forgotten the love for the person standing in front of her..her would to be husband...she has always loved him as a friend but since the time they got engaged she has dreamt of her entire life with this man..being loved..cared..protected..and today she needed all these things from this man..his love..his care..his protection...but the sight in front of him very soon got blurred...she started feeling dizzy..very much disapponted with the fact that the doctors have given her the injection at that time when she only wanted to be with him..sanchit..fighting hard to keep her eyes open she finally had to give up..not able to keep them open she unwillingly closed them .."sanchit.." whispering his name..
hearing sanchit's name from arohi's mouth itself was a great loss for arjun and the next biggest shock was to see the man alive in front of him...cursing himself for not recognizing the man before arjun stepped back in his shocked state..
it was great shock for everyone to see the person standing alive in front of them when everyone knew that the person was dead..keeping aside all grudges a mother's heart skipped a beat seeing her son ...all alive in front of her..after three long years...she atonce rushed towards him and hugged him runnig her hands all over his body reassuring herself that the person is his son..standing all well ..healthy in front of her..not able to control himself of bringing his son into his embrace sudhir too gave up and walked towards the person and held him in his warm embrace..both mother and father crying hard seeing their son and feeling contented of having him in their embrace...sanchit who was longing for his parent's love since so many years too broke down and hugged them...dj too letting her tears to flow rushed to him and hugged him ..words were something which were not coming out from their mouth..but realization atonce strucked them..breaking the hug entire three of them stepped back and stared at him shockingly..salil and karan were standing few steps away from the family..not knowing what to do...shocked surprised and happy at the same moment they both stepped forward but stopped seeing their parents stepping back..sahil's tears flowed like there is no end to them..feeling happy to see his friend..his soulmate alive but the past haunting memories were enought to make him clentched his fist...turning back and looking at his sister lying on the bed brought back the memory of sanchit leaving his sister for his own greed..it was enough to let him keep aside the emotions of a friend to fulfil the duty..his only duty of being responsible to the only family he had...his sister..
stepping forward sudhir's hand raised.not to caressed his son's face but to give him a tight slap on his face demanding the truth..the reason..the answer from him..."dhoke baz...makkar...paisoun ne tujhe itna andha kar dia..k tujhe apni maut ka jhoot bolne se bhi dar na laga..." he roared in anger..the slap trembled sanchit..."bol q bola jhoot...q chupai apni zindagi hum se...q kia aisa" he demanded in anger slapping him hard on his other cheek...sanchit fell down on his knees crying hard...he cried like if he has cried after ages.."maa..." he cryingly spoke...a mother's heart cluthched hearing her son calling her maa...maa ..the word she was dying to listen but knew will never be able to hear cuz god has snatched away her son from her..but today the word..hearing itself from her son's mouth took her to the flashback when she for the first time felt him in her womb...she closed her eyes letting her tears out.."maa plz mujhe maaf kar do...dad mjhe maaf kar do.." he cried..
arjun was standing on his spot looking at them ...completely numb..staring was the only thing he was doing..completely unable to speak..just cursing himself for not knowing the fact before inspite of being with the man since last 3 months..his body shivering..lips trembling..mind numb..mouth sealed..eyes stuck only on one person standing in front..his arohi's past..
"mujhse bht gari galti hogai...paisoun ki lalach mein mei sab khota gaya.." sanchit cried on his knees.."apne ap ko ap sab se door kar dia...zinda hote hue bhi khud ko ap k lie murda bana dia.."..."mjhe maaf kar do...dad plz.." he said cryingly..sudhir grabbed him from his collars and made him stood.."maafi...!! itna sab karne k baad tu maafi mang raha hai..hamare ghar ki khushyan hum se cheen leen tune..aur maafi mang raha hai..mera parivar tor dia tune aur maafi maang raha hai..meri bachi meri arohi ko jeete jee tune mar dia..aur maafi mang raha hai...mafi..bas..itna asan laga tujhe maafi mangna.." sudhir shouted..sanchit closed his eyes letting out the tears.."asan hi tu nahi tha dad...tabhi tu 3 saal lag gaye maafi mangne mein.." he whispered...sudhir left his collar and stared at him shockingly..sanchit opened his eyes and looked around at everyone..looking at the girl lying on bed he smiled in tears and stepped back..."mein tu sab ka gunehgar hun..apne pariwar ka apne dostun ka..arohi ka.." he said and again looked back at everyone sensing the question in everyone's eyes he continued.."mein janta hun ap sab yahi janna chahte hen k mein zinda kese hun.." he said..sudhir rolled his eyes and amrit wiped her tears.."han..." she said..he continued.."mein us plane mein betha hi nahi tha.." he said shocking everyone..
..."par...wo list...us mei...us mein tu tmhara naam tha.." asked salil surprisingly walking towards sanchit..sanchit after a pause continued:..."dad...arohi jab mujhse hospital milne ai thi tab mene arohi se milne se mana kar dia tha..aur us se mile bager hi mene australia k lie apni next flight ki ticket book kara li...mene airport jate hue raste mein bht socha ap sab se milne k lie par himmat nahi ho pa rahi thi..boarding karane k baad bhi mjhe kuch acha nahi lag raha tha especially arohi k lie...mjhe bura lag raha tha k sari galti apni khud ki hone k bawajud mene us se milne se mana kar dia..jo b tha par arohi meri dost thi..wo dost jis k saath mene apni zindagi ki har chuti bari khushi har chota bara dukh banta..arohi alluhwalia se na sahi par arohi sharma se tu mjhe ek baar baat krni hi chahye thi..aur is k age bina kuch soche mein airport se..apni flight chor k chala aya..abhi mein raste mein hi tha jab mjhe meri patni..preety ka call aya..use pata chal gaya tha arohi aur meri shadi k bare mein..ye baat mene use pehle kabhi nai batai thi..preety bht gusse mein thi aur us ne mjhse kaha k ya tu mei use choose karun ya apni family ko..mene use bht smjhaya par wo kuch sochne samjhne k lie tayyar hi nai thi aur us se baat krne k doran hi mjhe plane crash ka pata chala aur mjhe bht dhackha laga..ye soch k kuch pal pehle mei usi plane mei jane wale tha...kher...radio pe mene news mei suna k business tycoon sudhir alluwalia k bete ka b dihant us plane crash mei hogaya tu ye sun k mei aur shock mei agaya..ye soch soch k mere ansu nahi ruk rahe the k ap logoun ka kia haal horaha hoga..mann kia urh k ap sab k pass aoun aur bataun k mein theek hun..zinda hun par phr preety ka sawal zehn mein aya..preety ko mei kisi haal mei nahi kho skta tha..us waqt ap k pass ana preety ko khona tha aur ye mei khwab mei bhi nahi soch skta tha..preety meri life mei mere career k lie..mere future k lie..meri zindagi k lie bht important thi aur use mei kisi qeemat kho nahi skta tha..." he said and tears were something which didnt stop till now..everyone was shocked hearing all this from him..but still the entire thing was not clear..still everyone was confused of his disappearance and now sudden appearance..sanchit gathered himself and wiping his tears he continued.."mjhe laga k shaed jo hua us k peeche bhagwan ki bhi yahi marzi thi k mein apni zindagi ka sahi maeni samjh jaun..jo mene smjha..preety..mjhe laga k ap sab k lie sanchit alluhwalia mar gaya hai..matlb mera rasta saaf ...family chor k preety ko chunna..mushkil tha..bht mushkil..par zaruri tha..us plane crash mein khud ko mara hua bana k mene apni nai zindagi shoru karne ka faisla kia..aur us sanchit alluhwalia ko late sanchit alluhwalia bana k india mei chor k mein agle hi din australia chala gaya..aur wahan mene ek nae naam k saath apni zindagi shoru ki..s.raj malhotra..sanchit raj malhotra..preety malhotra ka husband..sk malhotra ki ek loti beti ka pati.. Aur usi din mene preety k dad se wada kia k unki Beti ko kabhi kisi qisam ki takleef nahi dunga..isi lie mere saath saath wo bhi sanchit alluhwalia ka naam apni zindagi se alag kar diye.."...he said and sat down leaning against the wall...
arjun was still like a statue..he listened to each and every word and the hatred for this man increased with every word from his mouth..everyone was looking at sanchit with disgust..hating him more knowing the real reason behind all this..a girl ...for whom he left his entire family..leaving them shattered with his death while still being alive.."tu ab tum wapis q aye...yahan tu ab tumhare lie kuch b nahi..koi property nahi..even ab tu hum b tmhare nahin.." ..said purvi still confused and feeling strange on his sudden appearance..sanchit still looking on the floor slightly smiled .."arohi k lie..arohi k lie aya hun.." he said shocking everyone..arjun hearing arohi's name from his mouth shockingly looked at him and instantly walked towards him.. grabbing him from his collar he slapped hard on his face..his eyes were red due to constant crying and anger..pushing him against the wall he shouted.."arohi ka naam bhi apni zaban se mat lena..himmat kese hui teri us ka naam lene ki..arohi ka..." he screamed and was stopped.."ye ap kia kr rahe hen..ye hospital hai.." said the nurse..arjun giving a glance to sanchit left him jerking him away..sanchit got confused on his behavior..but realisation clicked him ..he recalled arjun's words.."my wife arohi..arohi singhania couldnot make it due to her mother's illness.."..."oh tu arohi arjun ki wife hai...matlb arohi ki shadi.." he thought and was surprised by the fact..
Everyone went out of the room after nurse asked them to do so.."hamare sawal ka jawab rehta hai sanchit.." purvi reminded sanchit when everyone was out of the room...sanchit looked at purvi and then at arjun who was standing trembling with anger..sanchit sighed.."s.raj malhotra ban k jitna time mene guzara us mei mene ap sab ko bhulane ki bht koshish ki..par nahi bhula paya..kahin na kahin mei ab bhi wo sanchit tha jo ap sab se bht pyar krta tha..dad ne apni taraf se pora khayal rkha k kabhi bhi mei india na ja paun q k unhe dar tha k mei apni purani zindagi mei kahin dobara na chala jaun..unhe apni beti k lie dar tha..lekin jab itna arsa guzar gaya tu wo b tasalli mei agaye k ab shaed mei bhi bhool chuka hun sab aur malhotras k rang mei dhal gaya hun..arjun ki company k saath contract mein unho ne sari zimedari project ki mjhe di..ye jante hue b k india jana zaruri hoga us mei..par unhe yaqeen tha k ab sab badal gaya hai..aur india jana ab zada khatarnak nai tha..aur aisa hi hua india ane k baad mjhe sab yaad tu aya ..mann bhi kia sab se miloun par apni hadein shaed mein janta tha..mene janne ki koshish bhi nai ki hamari family k bare mein..q k mei janta tha k ab sab badal gaya hai..jab sanchit hi nahi raha tu purani zindagi mei dobara jhankne ka kia faeda..kal jab arohi ko arjun k office mei dekha.." he said and at that moment arjun shockingly looked at Him.."kal office mei arohi tum se mili?.." he asked shockingly.."matlab arohi ki ..." he said..sanchit interupted him.."meri pori baat tu..." he said and arjun lost patience and again stepped forward and grabbed his collar.."arohi teri waja..." he said angrily but jay stopped him.."arjun..arjun us ki baat sun tu le..." he said..arjun was in no mood to listen anybody..but jay pulled him along with him .."sambhal arjun...sabar se kaam le.." he said and arjun stared angrily at sanchit..sanchit lowered his eyes and continued.."arohi ko kal apne samne dekhte hi sara ateet sara bachpan sari zindagi mere samne agai..arohi mjhe dekhte hi zada shock mei ai..aur agle hi pal wo wahan se chale gai.." he said and paused for a while..looking at arohi through the mirror a fresh tear rolled down his cheeks.."arohi ki ek jhalak ne meri galtiyan mere samne la k khari kar di...mein arohi se maafi mangna chahta tha tab bhi aur ab bhi..3 saal pehle maafi mangna chahi tu maang na paya..ab itne saal baad mein kisi b qeemat par arohi se maafi mangna chahta tha..arohi k jate hi mei b wahan se nikal gaya..arohi k peeche us se maafi mangne us se baat krne..par wo ek dum hi gayab hogai..aur ek baar phr mene maafi mangne ka mauqa kho dia..bht mushkil k baad mene apne andar himmat paida ki arohi ka saamna karne ki is liye mene subha ghar pe call ki..dar b raha tha k kahin koi mjhe pehchan na le par kahin na kahin laga k arohi sab ko bata chuki hogi..phone kisi servant ne uthaya..pata chala arohi k accident k bare mei..usi ne mjhe ye hospital ka bataya..yahan ane k baad doctor se arohi ki condition ka pata chala...yahan room mei ane k baad arohi k moun se apna naam suna tu apni galti gunah lagi..aur us k baad jo hua wo ap sab k samne he.." he said and turned around to face everyone who was just staring at him..lips were sealed not knowing what to say..sanchit sighed and walked towards amrit and hold her hands.."maa mein..mein arohi se maafi mangna chahta tha maa..use is halat mei dekhna nahi..arohi k saath jo hua us ka mjhe bhi bht dukh hai par ye baat meine jani hai k ye sab k peeche ek waja hai..shaed mera arohi se isi tarha maafi mangna likha tha..maa arohi ki waja se aj mein zinda hun.." he said..everyone got confused and amrit asked him confusingly.."matlab.."..sanchit continued.."maa us din mein plane mei nai betha q k arohi k bare mein soch raha tha..us se maafi mangne ka khayal hi mjhe maut k moun se nikal k le aya..arohi...mom arohi ki jaan bachane k lie mera hona agar zaruri hai tu mei har waqt arohi k saath rahun ga..us ka purana sanchit..us ka dost ban k..arohi meri dost thi ye baat mei bhola nahi..aur apni dost ki jaan bachane k lie mei kuch bhi kar skta hun..ateet bhula k ateet ko jiyun ga mein arohi k saath..arohi k liye..us din arohi ne meri jaan bachai aur aj..." he said and was interupted by arjun.."aur aj tum...matlab ehsaan utarne ae ho..karz chukana hai tum ne.." he said rudely..sanchit gave a slight smile.."aur aj mein arohi ki jaan bachaun ga..q k meri zndagi Mei aj bhi mjhe ek ache dost ki zarurat hai..jo arohi thi..aur rahe gi.." he said and looked at every one's face..
after half an hour of this boring journey arohi sighed and looked at everyone..."agar aise hi bore karna tha tu mjhe ghar pe hi chor dete saath q laye.." said arohi loudly grabbing everyone's attention..arohi's voice brought arjun out of his thoughts and he looked at her..arohi stood and looking at everyone.."chalo lets play some game.." she said excitedly..everyone smiled.."kaunsa game khelna hai arohi.." asked sahil turning back..arohi smiled .."cricket khelte hain..?" she said making everyone confused..looking at everyone's face she laughed.."are bhai ab aisa fazool sawal pochenge ap tu jawab bhi aisa hi mile ga na..bus trip pe konsi game khelte hein?...antakshri!!...tu hum bhi wahi khelenge.." she said..sahil smiled ..rashi excitedly.."wow ...tu chalo start karte hen.." she said..arohi smiled.."hum group banate hein..wait.." she said and then looking at everyone she continued.."ok karan , mein, sanchit, rashi, aur sahil bhayya ek team mein...and shefali, purvi bhabhi, salil bhayya, jay..aur..arjun dosri team mein...chalo lets start.."arohi said excitedly...sanchit turned back and looked at her.."arohi..mujhe nahi khelna ..tum log khelo.." he said..arohi's smile faded.."q sanchit..plz khelo na..bht maza aye ga..seriously..plz.." she requested him..sanchit smiled and shook his head negatively.."sorry arohi..u guys carry on.." he said..arohi's face fell and she immediately smiled.."pehli bari hamari..aur hamari team se sanchit gaye ga pehle..come on sanchit.." she said and looked at him winking at him..sanchit smiled and was thinking for a song..arjun smiled seeing the smile on arohi's face but with sanchit around he was not feeling like singing but only punching him..he cleared his throat.."mera mood nahi hai ...tum log khelo .." he said and started working on his iphone..arohi surprisingly looked at him..shefali tried to convince him for playing.."arjun khelo na seriously maza aye ga..hamara ek partner bhi kam ho jae ga..agar tum ne na khela tu.." she said..but arjun didnt reply..arohi looked at him and then the iphone in his hand..she rolled her eyes.."leave it shefali..jise nahi khelna wo na khele..par hum tu khel rahe hein na.." she said and sat back on her seat ..arjun on hearing arohi didnt look at her but smiled thinking that how just an accident has changed all her priorities..
everyone in the bus except arjun then started playing antakshri..with arohi's team leading..for which she was very excited..slowly they drifted towards singing the full songs..and after a few while they stopped playing antakshri and started singing theme based songs..patriotic, bhajan, love songs..etc..they played like this for alomost one hour..all the way through the journey and the game arjun couldnot help but cast fleeting glances towards arohi..her every smile..her every laughter was giving relief to the pain inside his heart but still there was a feeling..a sad feeling..for him not being the reason for any of her smile ..any of her laughter..
rashi sighed and rested her head against the seat and closed her eyes...after the one hour non stop fun finally everyone stopped and got busy in their own stuffs..a smile spread on rashi's lips recalling the antakshri they played last time..though she enjoyed this time too but that time was different..the memories of those days were like a beautiful treasure for her..sahil sitting beside her noticed her smiling.."kia hua.." he asked making her open her eyes..she looked at him and asked confusingly.."kia hua?.."..sahil smiled shooking his head.."tum batau muskra tum rahi ho mein nahi.." he said..rashi smiled.."oh acha..kuch nahi bas aise hi last time ka trip yaad agaya.." she said and turned back to look at arohi who was talking to shefali..her smile faded when her eyes fell on arjun who was lost in his own thoughts..sahil looked at her and then turned back to see the thing which has grabbed her attention..his eyes fell on arjun and arohi and he again looked back at rashi.."dont worry...wo din dobara ayein ge..wo waqt dobara aye ga jab arjun arohi eik dosre se dur nahi balkeh ek dosre k saath bethenge.." he said..rashi looked at him and was staring him in order to find some reassurity in his words..sahil smiled and nodded his head reassuring her..rashi smiled back and giving a last glance to arjun and arohi she turned back.."thanks sahil..i hope wo din jaldi aye..q k arohi bolna mujhe acha nahi lagta..bhabhi bolne ki adat ho gai hai.." she said while offering the chewing gum which she took out from her bag..taking the one sahil smiled.."thanks.." he said..
tired of the long journey ..stretching his hands his eyes fell on arohi whose head was leaning against the mirror..eyes closed..and a peaceful smile playing on her lips..arjun's tiredness flew away seeing the person who is the only one which can bring calmness to him whenever he is tired..her sight was like a soothing effect for his eyes..his own lips curved into a bright smile..instantly on seeing her being restless due to which a little fury appeared on her face and observing some different expressions on her face his own smile faded..he looked around the bus and then again at arohi..thinking what might have caused her to fury..but when her words echoed in his ears.."arjun..wo..mjhe nausea ho raha hai..wo travelling nausea.." ..."mjhe bas lemon water le dein mein thk hojaungi"...he atonce understood the reason of her restlesness.."driver plz bus rokna... yahan pas mein jo tuck shop arahi hai wahan rok dena.."...he asked the driver...sahil turned back and looked at arjun when the driver stopped the bus.."kia hua arjun..kuch chahye kia.." he asked..arjun stood from his seat.."han mein soch raha hun kuch drinks aur pani le aoun sab k lie.." he said..sahil nodded and smiled..hearing sahil's and arjun's voice arohi opened her eyes..she was not feeling well due to her nausea..she felt like vomitting..but when she looked that everyone is sleeping so she thought.."sab disturb hojaenge.." but now when the bus has already stopped so she can ask for something for her...arjun walked towards the door and noticing this arohi stood and instantly spoke.."suno mere lie..." but arjun already left the bus..she sat back on her seat .."ajeeb hi hai...pakka behra hai ye.." she said irritatedly..
arjun after few minutes entered the bus with a bag full of soft drinks..arohi looked at him and rolled her eyes and started playing game on her phone..."thanks jee..." said karan when arjun handed him his soft drink..arjun looked at him shockingly but karan immediately corrected.."thanks bhayya jee..." he said and smiled..arjun smiled and ruffled his hairs.."anytime.." he said..after giving everyone their drinks arjun looked at arohi and smiled..he looked at the last bottle in his hand..lemon water..he brought his hand forward to her eyes showing her the bottle..on seeing the bottle arohi's lips immediately curved into a bright smile and she looked at the person offering it and on seeing him her smile faded.."suno mere lie.." her own words echoed in her ears and she confusingly looked back at him again..."ap ko kaise pata mujhe lemon water chaye.." she asked leaving him mumbling for words..."wo..me...ais...mera matlab.." he mumbled..arohi rolled her eyes.."whatever...!" she said..taking the bottle from his hand .."thanks anyway.." she said and smiled looking back at him..arjun smiled seeing her smile..for him..cuz of him..
arohi rested her head back on her seat..her eyes open..everything around her was quiet..shefali had slept and giving a short glance at everyone around she can say that almost everyone has slept..She kept her eyes open.. letting her mind wander to what that 3 and a half years life was before her accident..she wanted to remember that life..she wanted to remember everything but her bad luck..She closed her eyes in despair, remembering nothing and two tears ran down her face..she raised her hand to her face and wiped away the tears that stained her face and in place of her frown, a smile formed thinking.."sab kuch tu waisa hi hai..meri zindagi k sab important log mere saath hain..mom dad, bhabhi, bhayyas, karan..aur sanchit..shaed waqai kuch khas nahi badla.."..she sighed and her eyes fell on sanchit who was sitting alone..arohi smiled and stood from her seat and walked towards sanchit's seat and sat with him..."tum bore ho rahe ho?.." she asked..sanchit smiled.."nahi tu.."...arohi smiled.."tum bore ho rahe ho..tumhari shakal pe likha hai..sanchit ab itna tu mein tumhe janti hi hun..bachpan ka saath hai.." she said..
Sanchit stared at arohi's face..no doubt they were together since their childhood...but a lot has changed now..he is not the same sanchit with whom she was friend with..this sanchit is her culprit..the one who is the sole responsible for several tears in her eyes..though she has forgotten everything..but he still has the memory of that betrayel..that day in hospital everyone agreed to his action of helping arohi during this crucial time..arjun has not said anything but his silence was still his answer that he too agreed with all this..but that day he was also told to maintain limits with arohi and to keep in mind that he is sanchit alluhwalia only for arohi but for the entire family he was and will always be late sanchit alluhwalia and now s.raj malhotra..for the family he still doesnot exist..it hurted him alot..but he knew that this is what he deserves..yes he had told everyone abt the motive of him helping arohi but deep in his heart he knew that the reason behind being with arohi is not just returning the favour but something more than that...
"mjhe pata tha..pata tha mjhe tum eik baar india aye tu zarur jao ge apni family k pass.." shouted preety after sanchit told her about the entire incident that happened..sanchit sighed and stepped forward..holding her hand.."preety aisi baat nahi hai..mjhe arohi ki madad karni hai..mein kab se us se maafi mangna chahta tha..me nahi maang paya..preety mere andar jo ek chubhan hai shaed wo mere aisa karne se khatam ho jaye.." he said reassuring her..preety jerked away his hand and turned back to face her father.."dad..dad ap dekh rahe hen na raj kia keh raha hai..dad wo apni family k pass wapis ja raha hai..dad wo phr mjhe chor raha hai..dad.." she said cryingly..sk sighed and stepped forward.."preety beta ab baat aur hai...arohi ab arjun ki patni hai aur sanchit tumhara pati...aur arohi aur sanchit donu apne apne life partners se bht pyar krte hen tu dar tu kisi baat ka bhi nahi.." he said..preety was not in mood to understand anything..she turned around and looked at sanchit.."i will never let u go back to ur family especially arohi.." she said and walked towards the door..sanchit always have listened to preety and agreed to every decision of hers without expressing his own views..but this time he wont listen anyone..he too has the right to express his views and to take his own decision..he stopped preety.."arohi meri dost hai..aj uski ye halat meri waja se hai..aur mein arohi k is waqt mein us ka pura saath dunga chahe mera parivar mjhe maaf kare ya na kare par mein arohi ki is takleef mein us k saath rahunga.." he said..preety turned around.."aisa nahi hoga raj..tum sirf mere ho aur mere ilawa mein tumhe kisi aur k pas nahi jane dungi..we are going back to london and thats it.."..she said..sanchit closed his eyes and snapped open..calming himself he continued.."preety i will do whatever i feel like and thats it..us waqt tmhare kehne pe mene sab chor dia..but not this time..aj mein tumhe
Choice deta hun...ya tu mere faisle se raazi raho ya phr..." he said and paused..preety was staring at him ..she stepped forward.."ya phr kia raj..phr kia..?.." she asked..sanchit sighed.."ya phr..i will divorse you.." he said looking into her eyes..sk shockingly looked at both..preety stood silent completely shocked..she was staring him ..the look on his face was the one giving her reassurity of his words..she stepped back and tears started falling from her eyes.."raj..raj tum ye kia keh rahe ho..u know na i love you..aur tum phr bhi..phr bhi...tum mazaq kar rahe ho na.." she said..sanchit stepped forward.."i know u love me..par preety hamare beech k rishte ki sachai bhi hum teeno se chupi nahi hai..mein tumhara pati sirf naam ka hun..aj tak tmhare isharun pe naacha hun par ab nahi..wese b aise rishte ko jeene ka kia faeda jis me pyar kam ghulami zada ho.." he said and cupped her face drenched with tears.."preety mein nahi chahta aisa...par is baar mein wahi krna chahta hun jo mei pechle 3 saaloun se krna chah raha hun...sab theek krna chahta hun.." he said..preety hold his hands and moved away from her face.."tum mere ghulam nahi ho..ye sirf mera pyar hai raj..sirf mera pyar.." she said and sighed.."ok..do whatever u want to..but remember one thing..arohi sirf arjun ki hai..sirf arjun ki..and you..u are only mine..mine..my sanchit my raj..." she said stressing on each word...wiping her tears she walked away..
Arohi was looking at sanchit lost in his thoughts..she called out his name making him aware of her presence but he was too lost to listen..she nodded him which brought him out of his thoughts.."kia hogaya..kab se bula rahi hun.." she said ...sanchit smiled.."kuch nahi..kuch yaad agaya tha bas.." he said and turned his face..looking out of the window..arohi smiled.."sanchit..ek baat pochun.." she said..sanchit looking out said.."hmm.." arohi hesitantly.."tum itne dino se chup chup ho thore..tum aise tu nahi the..tum tu.." she said and stopped hearing the loud sound..sanchit and arohi instantly turned back only to find arjun staring back at them...
little motion made arjun to open his eyes..he looked around and his eyes fell on arohi who was sitting with sanchit..he shrugged the angry feeling that was brewing around and inside him..he moved to the side and closed the window..trying hard not to slam it but still taking out all his anger on that window..he turned only to find the two of them staring at him but he only stared at sanchit giving him warning through his eyes to remember his limits and accusing him for all that happened..
The anger which flashed in his eyes was something which didnt go unnotice by arohi..she very confusingly was looking at arjun who was staring at sanchit with so much rage..shifting her gaze on sanchit she noticed something different..something strange..she saw guilt..shooking her head she diverted her thoughts thinking herself to be wrong.."ye mr.ajeeb tu kisi ko bhi ghorte rehte hen.." she said to herself and sat looking out of the window talking with sanchit...
sahil's eyes opened due to whispering ..he turned his face to the other side and saw arohi and sanchit talking..he got angry and was staring at sanchit like if he is going to kill him just now..feeling something heavy on his shoulder..he turned and smiled seeing rashi leaning against his shoulders.. and got lost and froze seeing her innocent beauty..the calmness on her face adding charm to her beauty..he leaned back on his seat giving her complete support of his shoulders and closed his eyes..
The bus stopped and everyone was out standing in the garden of the farm house..servants were taking out the luggage from the bus..it was not new for the others being there in the houe not even for arohi but still everything was new for her..sanchit ,karan and sahil who were here for the first time..everyone was exhausted after the 5 hours long journey and wanted to relax for a while ..karan shefali and rashi ran inside and threw themselves on the sofa..jay and arjun went inside guiding the servants abt keeping the luggage in the rooms..
getting impressed by the greenery of the garden and beauty of the farm house from outside arohi smiled...as arohi stepped inside the house a rush of vague.. unclear memories hit her..She tried to focus on the visual, but all the noises around her deterred her...she was feeling some kind of familiarity with the house..somewhere sometime she thought herself to be here..but she couldnot really recall anything..shefali looked at arohi standing lost in her thoughts with confused expressions on her face..she stood and walked towards her.."arohi kia soch rahi hai.." she said jerking arohi out of her thoughts..arohi shook her head.."nahi..kuch nahi.." she said.."ye farm house kitna khobsurat hai na.." she said smilingly..shefali smiled.."abhi jab tu pora dekhe gi tab pata chale ga k ye teri soch se bhi zada khobsurat hai.." she said excitedly..Arohi stood smiling with shefali..eyes roaming around the whole house admiring the interior and its beauty..though inside her was a strange feeling some blurred images but she ignored them thinking herself to be tired..."ok..sab k saman un k rooms mein rkhwa die hen sab ja k thori der rest kr lo fresh ho jayen phr lunch karte hen.." said jay..looking at arohi and shefali he continued.."shefali tmhara wahi room hai rashi k saath..and arohi sorry par tmhe room akele hi use krna hoga.." he said..arohi looked at him and smiled.."ye tu bht achi baat hai..aur thank god shefali mere saath nahi hai..is k saath ho tu sone kahan deti hai.." arohi said..shefali.."arohi..tu sone nahi deti smjhi.." she said..arohi sticking her tongue out teased shefali and then laughed..jay smiled..shefali rolling her eyes left for her room..jay sighed.."ok arohi tumhara room 3rd floor pe 2nd room hai..go and get fresh.." jay said..arohi nodded and left..
Arohi entered the room..it was a large room with simple decoration..the colour of the room was light and contemprary furniture was giving the room the more elegant look..she smiled...feeling tired decided to fresh up..looking all around the room her eyes searched for her suitcase which she couldnt found.."saman kahan hai?..." she thought..giving one last look over the room she got confused cuz she has seen the servants carrying the bags..her suitcase was there then where it has gone..she giving up on her effort to find her suitcase went downstairs...
Arjun entered his room..the one which was their at the time when they had come for the first time..his lips curved into a sad smile seeing the room ..it was the room where they had shared one of the best moments of their Life together..it was the room where for the first time he realized his love for arohi..the importance of arohi in his life..it was the same room where they shared their first kiss..the room where they decided to take their relationship a step ahead..room which has so many laughters..hopes..expectations..desires..passion..happiness absorbed in it..looking at it was reminding him of each and every moment bringing tears in his eyes..he sighed..wiping his tears walked towards the bed when his eyes fell on the suitcases kept on the side.."do suit case!!..mera tu ek hi tha.." he said to himself..he picked his own suitcase and kept it on the bed and confusingly looked at the other one.."kahin koi aur tu nahi mere saath room share kar raha.." he thought...he shook his head.."jay tu mar k bhi mere saath room share nahi kare ga..karan ko tu games wala room diya hai..salil bhi purvi k saath hi hoga..sanchit..sanchit tu never..phr.." he thought..he sighed and dragging the suitcase with him he left the room..
"yaheen kaheen hoga abhi dekh lete hen.." said purvi after arohi informed everyone abt her suitcase..saying this purvi, jay , salil and rashi started searching for arohi's suitcase..arohi asked the servant abt the suitcase.."wo tu mene ap k room mein rakh diya tha.." he said..arohi confusingly.."mein abhi waheen se arahi hun wahan nahi hai.." she said..servant too got confused.."mene such mei ap k hi room mein rakha tha.." he said .."mein dekhta hun.." he said and went away..just then arjun came downstairs with the suitcase and servant seeing him exclaimed.."yeh dekhiye sir k pass hi hai ap ka suitcase.." he said..arjun confusingly looked at the suitcase and then at arohi.."ye tumhara hai..?"..he asked..arohi looked at the suitcase and then at arjun..she rushed to him.."haan par ye ap ko kahan.." she said..arjun:.."wo mere room mei tha.." he said..servant interupted.."dekha madam mene kaha tha na k mene ap k room mei hi rakha tha.." he said..arohi surprisingly looked at him..arjun shocked..he glared at the servant..jay cleared his throat.."are bhai...tu mere saath chal zara..." he said and dragging the servant along with him he turned.."arohi dont worry..mein abhi is ki class leta hun.." he said making the servant confused...after they both left arohi turned to face arjun..she looked at the suitcase.."jese khud ho servants bhi wese hi rakhen hain..." she said with a pout on her face..and took her suitcase from his hands..looking at the cute expression on her face brought smile on his face..he smirked.."acha!..aurrr..kesa hun mein.." he asked teasingly raising his eyebrow..arohi looked at him irritated with his question...with the same expression on her face she replied twisting her nose.."ajeeb.." and dragging her suitcase she walked upstairs leaving him laughing on his own...the laughter which cheered his lips after so many days..no doubt his happiness revolves only around arohi..she is his source of happiness ..his life.. ..
