Hey guys!!!!...It has been so long since I updated this FF: JINHE KABHI NAA MILNA THA.
Your comments have made me realized that you actually love the story. And thanks to all for you valuable comments. I promise you a superb killer part... So, here is the first episode of the eleventh part...READ ON...
Arjun and Riya were driving towards the hotel which was on the target of some terrorist group who had already warned the Government that if they do not fulfill their demands, the hotel would be bombed and none of the police force would be able to do anything. Today, something was different. It was not that they both were traveling in the same SUV alone for the very first time, yet today was something special. The most irregular thing being, Arjun's response to Riya who was chatting. Riya's non-stop chatting had become a part of their regular curriculum. Their day would begin seeing and hearing Riya smiling, chatting, joking, and so would it end. Another regular part of their curricular being seeing Arjun's fed up expressions towards the chirpy Riya and hearing him scold Riya infinitely, indefinitely for anything and everything she did.
One day, when Rathod asked Riya to bring his file from his cabin, she went off following his order. While returning she was so engrossed in that file, she banged onto Arjun's chest. Without knowing why, how or any thing else, his anger shot up seeing Riya be the offender who dare collapsed with him. And Arjun's long time lectures began, "How irresponsible of you," "You are not a grown-up yet", "You are not appropriate for this job", "You cannot perform any duty properly," "You should return to the RESEARCH DESK", "I wait for the day when you would leave" and many more of such comments.
Much to the audience's surprise (I mean Rathod, Shree and Chhotu), Riya listened to all that quietly without speaking. Even when Arjun was walking off towards his cabin, he was expecting a feminine voice to pierce the silence and throw an equal amount of curses back to him. But nothing of such kind happened. Taking advantage of the opportunity Arjun immediately rushed to the cabin and banged the door. Rathod asked Shree to go and check if Riya was fine after that BHASHAN. He was too worried that his RIYA did not shout back at Arjun, IMPOSSIBLE. May be she was hurt or was crying.
Shree went to Riya and pulled her towards him to ensure that she was not crying .As soon as Shree looked Riya's face, he began laughing. She appeared red due to anger. Shree: Hahahahaha! meri jhalli! ab to sachchi mein jhalli lag rahi hai...hahahaha. Riya: Shut up Shree...I don't understand ki Arjun Sir ka problem kya hai? Kabh-kabhi I feel like ki maine pichle janam mein mere bhed bakri inke khet ki saari ghaas khaa gaye the. Aur us baat ka badla vo mujhse is janam mein nikal rahe hain.Are yaar, agar insaan ki shakal achchi na ho to kam se kam baatein to achchi karni chahiye... Shree laughed out loudly and seeing him Riya too smiled.
He brought her along with him to the Conference hall. Seeing both of them smiling Rathod understood that everything was fine now.
At present, Riya was talking to Arjun and Arjun was replying back to her silly questions. Riya was too surprised seeing him smile. She thought to herself,
"Beta Riya, zindagi mein aise mauke baar baar nahi milte, Arjun sir ko smile karte dekhne ka mauka to definitely dobara nahi milega. Mujhe to lagta hai ki Arjun ne do pack laga rakhi hai...hmmm" And she smiled at her thoughts, which was noticed by Arjun.
Arjun: Kya hua Riya??
Riya: (too confused what to say): Kuch nahi vo to main bas kuch soch rahi thi.
Arjun: Kya soch rahi thi??
Riya:Vo main keh rahi thi, Sir you have a killer smile. Aapki smile pe to koi bhi mar jaye...
Riya bit her tongue thinking to what she had just said. But she stealthily looked at Arjun, who was smiling at her compliment.Actually, hearing this Arjun felt that may be Riya also feels something special for him as he does for her. But it was not so.
Riya (to herself): Aaj to tu bach gayi...
Suddenly her phone beeped. It was Shree who had texted.
Shree: Riya saza kaisi lagi??? Shree: Kyun Rathod Sir ne tujhe bataya nahi ki aaj ke undercover mein bhi tu Arjun Sir ki wife hai...
Riya was hell shocked. She thought to herself,
"Tabhi bhai ne kaha tha ki plan abhi nahi baad mein Arjun tumhe samjha dega."
Riya: NAHIII... Shree: Enjoy baby...
To break the silence, Arjun switched on the stereo. Riya and Shree had downloaded a whole lot of new songs.
The day when Riya sat in the ETF SUV for the very first time, she remarked,
"Yeh to duniya ki sabse boring gaadi hai..."
And no doubt she was right. The ETF SUV was such a bore. Earlier Arjun would drive; Rathod would sit next to him. While Shree and Chhotu would be dumped at the back. With the coming of Riya, things were changed.
There was always a quarrel between the trio for the two window seats at the back. Poor Riya always lost and had to sit between Shree and Chhotu. Arjun and Rathod enjoyed it thoroughly from their rear view mirrors.
Another thing was that Riya was blessed with a beautiful voice. Her voice was so melodious that it could please the ears and touch the heart. Many a times Rathod would ask Riya to sing something instead of switching on the Radio. Once Rathod switched on the stereo as per Riya's request. The song began playing,
"Thandi hawaein lehra ke aayein,
Rut hai jawan, tum ho yahan,
Riya saw Rathod enjoying the beat of this very old song and heard him humming the song...
Riya burst into laughter...She immediately said,
"Sir, ye aapke zamane ka gaana hai.I think the ETF's Chief is very old."
All began smiling. Rathod immediately turned off the stereo in embarrassment and said,
Riya flashed her dimple smile as an apology. Arjun was a silent observer of this from the adjustable car mirror...
At present the song played,
JEENE LAGA HOON
PEHLE SE ZYAADA
PEHLE SE ZYAADA TUM PE MARNE LAGA HOON.
Arjun began to switch the channel, when Riya exclaimed,
"Sir, badalna mat, yeh to bohot hi mast gaana hai. I love this song."
Arjun did not switch the channel and concentrated on his driving and the song as well. While Riya was busy in chatting with someone via text messages.
MAIN MERA DIL AUR TUM HO YAHAN,
PHIR KYON HO PALKE JHUKAYE WAHAN.
TUM SA HASEEN PEHLE DEKHA NAHI,
TUN ISSE PEHLE THE JAANE KAHAN.
JEENE LAGA HOON
PEHLE SE ZYAADA
PEHLE SE ZYAADA TUM PE MARNE LAGA HOON.
Arjun felt as if the song was just and just meant for him. The day he had realized that he had fallen for Riya, he began to live more. He again began to live his life that had been lost for sometime. He then went into a flashback.
In the ETF Office
Rathod had yet not arrived. The trio was chilling in the conference hall while Arjun was in his cabin.
Chhotu: Riya kya tumhe kabhi kisi se pyaar hua hai??
Arjun was listening to all this from his cabin. His eyes immediately shot up to hear Riya's reply.
Riya: Chhotu bas yahi to ek problem hai. Mujhe yeh nahi pata ki mujhe pata kaise chalega ki mujhe kisi se pyaar ho gaya hai? Chhotu: It's so simple. Shree: Haan. Jab hawaein chalne lage. Chhotu: Raaton ki neend ud jaaye. Shree:Sab kuch badla badla sa nazar aaye. Chhotu: Kuch bhi naa karne ka man kare. Shree: Anxiety wali feeling aaye. Chhotu: Pet mein ajeeb si gud gudi lage... Shree: Aur aisa lage ki Hollywood aur Bollywood ke saare gaane tumhi par filmaye gaye hain... Shree and Chhotu: Hame pyaar ho gaya hai aur hame to yahi feel hota hai... Riya (very seriously): Sacchchi... Shree and Chhotu: HAAN... Riya: Guys, get going to a doctor... Shree: Pyaar ka koi doctor nahi hota Jhalli...
Riya: Pyaar????? Tumhare symptoms sunke to mujhe lagta hai ki tumhe MALARIA ho gaya hai...Yeh sab to Malaria ke symptoms hain...
And she burst out into laughter. Arjun too smiled in his cabin hearing all this... Shree and Chhotu ran behind Riya to catch her and shouting " CHUP "as she ran away...
Riya: AISA KOI PAIDA NAHI HUA
FIRST, JISPE MAIN LATTU HO JAUN
SECOND, JO MUJHE HANDLE KAR SAKE
THIRD, JO MUJHE CHUP KARA SAKE...
Arjun again smiled. His chains of thoughts were broken by a beeping horn...
REHTE HO AAKE JO TUM PAAS MERE
THAM JAYE PAL YE WAHI BAS MAIN YE SOCHOON
SOCHOON MAIN THAM JAAYE PAL YE PAAS MERE JAB HO TUM
SOCHOON MAIN THAM JAAYE PAL YE PAAS MERE JAB HO TUM
CHALTI HAIN SAANSE PEHLE SE ZYADA
PEHLE SE ZYADA DIL THEHERNE LAGA
TANHAYIYON MEIN TUJHE DHOONDHE MERA DIL
HAR PAL YE TUJHKO HI SOCHE BHALA KYON
TANHAYI MEIN DHOONDHE TUJHE DIL
HAR PAL TUJHKO SOCHE
TANHAYI MEIN DHOONDHE TUJHE DIL
HAR PAL TUJHKO SOCHE
MILNE LAGE DIL PEHLE SE ZYADA
PEHLE SE ZYADA ISHQ HONE LAGA
As soon as the song finished Arjun looked towards Riya. She was smiling looking at something on her phone. Arjun bent a little closer to her to see what she was actually doing. She was shopping online. Arjun smiled and then concentrated on his driving. His thoughts again crowded his brain. He thought to himself,
"Riya har baat par BRANDS ka naam leti hai. Har cheez branded khareedti hai. Phir bhi she is so simple. Us din na jaane maine use gusse mein kya-kya keh diya. Mujhe vo sab nahi kehna chahiye tha. Maine uske emotions ko kitna hurt kiya. Par phir bhi usne sab kuch bhulakar mujhe maaf kar diya. Par kya pata vo abhi bhi mujhse naaraz ho. Maine na jaane uske aur Shree ke baare mein kya-kya socha..."
This brought his thoughts to a halt. "Wait! Us din Riya ne yeh nahi bataya ki uska aur Shree ka kya rishta hai...Shayad Riya Shree se sach mein...Nahi aisa nahi ho sakta...Ek kaam karta hoon main usse hi pooch leta hoon. Nahi par kahin yeh jhooth hua aur maine Riya ko hamesha ke liye kho diya toh..." Arjun had grown weaker now. The mere thought of losing Riya terrified him from within. He had once experienced his life' ALL-GONE'' when Roshni left him and now for the second time was something that he could not even think of. At present Riya was capable of taking his breath away. Her Pink Sari, her Danglings, her Pink lipstick, her Kajal, her hair who were playing with the wind, her pink bracelet, the little amount of sindoor on her forehead, the mangalsootra and of course, her contagious and killer smile. Arjun could not take his eyes off. But he was dead sure that as usual Riya's beauty would put them in trouble. It was an everyday story for them. While solving the case some or the other guy would fall for Riya, while on an undercover or on duty. And they always landed in knee-deep- trouble, always. Hence, Arjun called her PROBLEM ATTRACTING MAGNET. But he enjoyed teasing her by scolding her. He promised himself that he would always respect their professional relationship until he makes Riya realize his love for her. Arjun smiled at his thoughts...
Soon they were in front of the RESORT.
"MOONLIGHT COUPLES' RESORT', Riya read out looking at the board placed on the 14th floor of the RESORT. The Resort was so grand. It was one of the most luxurious of Resorts in Mumbai and a place of visit for most of the high profile people of Mumbai and near-by...
Riya: WOW! MAZE AAYENGE... Arjun: Riya, kuch kaha tumne. Mujhe laga ki maine "MAZA" jaisa kuch suna. I hope ki wo tumne nahi kaha aur tumhe yaad hai ki hum yahan kyon aaye hain???? Riya: Arjun Sir, PLAN KYA HAI?????? (Immediately changing the topic to save her from further scolding) Arjun :( enjoying the moment): Tumhe nahi pata kya???
Riya: Pata hota, toh thodi na poochti...
Arjun: "Haan... (He called Shree and Chhotu via a conference call) To dhyan se suno. We would enter as a couple. (Even speaking this, gave Arjun an unexplained pleasure). The time is 10:00 a.m. Us threat call ke according agar Government unki maangein poori nahi karti hai, jo ki vo nahi karegi, to vo 11 o'clock tak is RESORT ke sabhi logon ko maar denge. Yeh kitna high profile restaurant hai yeh mujhe samjhane ki zaroorat nahi hai. Shree aur Chhotu hame backup denge ETF Office se. In case, sab kuch plan ke according nahi hota hai toh, you both would be ready for an encounter with the terrorists along with the police force. Is that clear?
Hum ghoomne ke bahaane pure Hotel ko search karenge. Har vo insaan jis par zara sa bhi doubt hoga bas uski ek picture Shree ko bhej denge jo hame uski har detail dega, Resort ke record se bhi aur police record se bhi. Is that clear Shree? Par ek baat dhyaan rahe we are lacking time. Chhotu, tum apne saare informers ko activate kar do. Har important jagah jaise Home ministry, Police Department ka head office, Airport, Railway Station, Bus stand, Sea ports, malls and everywhere, sab jagah security badha do.
GUYS IT'S TIME FOR ACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"YES SIR", all exclaimed with full enthusiasm.
Shree: Sir, jo maine aapko aue Riya ko microphone diya tha, use activate hone mein bas do minute aur lagange. Main aapse usi ke through contact karta hoon.
Arjun: WELL DONE, Shree... Riya looks in disbelief while Shree and Chhotu cannot believe their ears. Shree: Thank you sir, for the compliment... Kisi ne suna kya???(Teasing Riya) Riya: Haan haan...do kaan hain mere paas... Shree: Sachchi...mujhe to pata hi nahi tha. tum kabhi use nahi karti na unhe..isiliye... Riya: Shut up Shree... Shree: Bye jhalli... (And he cuts the call)
Arjun again confused, thinks of the relation Shree and Riya share.
Suddenly, Riya thought of the word Shree had just said, "COMPLIMENT"...She realized that she had not complimented Arjun. She looked at Arjun. He was wearing a black suit with a dark pink shirt and a not properly light pink tie. He was looking damn handsome.
Riya smiled childishly looking at his improperly done tie. She immediately said,
"Oh ho sir... Aap vaise to bohot handsome lag rahe ho, bas aapki tie...IT'S NOT DONE PROPERLY yaar..."
She immediately took out his tie from his neck and opened the knot. And then again hanged it around his neck and began to tie the knot with lot of love and affection. Arjun remembers how Roshni would do the same to his tie. He was so happy that Riya would soon take her place in his life. Riya' touch gave him an indescribable feeling sending shivers down his spine and his emotions for her that time, were hard to control. He somehow managed his emotions while innocent Riya unaware of anything and everything, finished her task. The intensity of the moment was broken by Shree's call.
Shree: Sir, aap dono ke microphones connect aur activate ho chuke hain. They are ready for use. You can check them.
Arjun took out both of them from his pocket. He placed one on his collar while handed on one to Riya. Riya placed the microphone on her dangling earring. She again got busy with her phone.
Arjun said a yes as a sign to let Shree know that his microphone was functioning properly, but no response from Riya made it clear that her microphone was not working.
Shree: RIYA...RIYA...can you hear me???
As no response came, Shree said,
"Arjun sir, please Riya ka microphone check karna. Dekhna ki kahin usne speaker wali side, niche ki taraf to place nahi ki hai."
Arjun immediately moved closer to Riya's face towards her earring. As Riya looked up and Arjun looked onto her innocent face, both shared an intense eye lock and could feel each other's breath on their faces. Riya was unable to respond to Arjun's sudden closeness. Arjun, however, enjoying the moment and without breaking the intensity of the eye lock, placed Riya's hair behind her ear. This brought Riya to senses.
Riya immediately responded," Aa"
But before she could speak anything, Arjun said,
She was at a loss of words at an instance. Arjun smiled remembering what Riya said,
"AISA KOI PAIDA NAHI HUA JO MUJHE CHUP KARA SAKE"
He then, removed the earphone and placed it properly. Riya was too shocked, or rather dumbstruck to respond. The intensity of the moment was spoiled by Shree through the microphone,
"RIYU! RIYU! MERI AAWAZ AA RAHI HAI????? RIYU! HELLO! RIYU...
Riya after gathering all her courage to speak,
"Haan Shree, I can hear you..."
Arjun: GUYS LETS GET GOING..."
Shree checked all his instruments and switched on his tracker system. Chhotu activated all his informers near and far and made sure of proper security all around. Arjun and Riya got down from the car.
Arjun: Riya, it's already 10:05 a.m. We need to execute our plan without fail to protect hundreds of life.
Riya (flashing her dimple smile): We will surely succeed.
They began to cover the distance between them and the Resort gate, while on the way Arjun did something unusual. He held Riya's hand in his. Arjun thought that like all other girls she would be shocked or would react otherwise. But Riya was so different from the rest. And that was certainly the reason Arjun had fallen for her. Much to Arjun's surprise, Riya also held his hand with similar love and care that a wife would do, showing signs of neither FORMALITY nor SURPRISE on her beautiful face. Instead Arjun again felt that Riya also felt something for him as he did for her.Arjun gazed at her face while walking with her hand in his. She looked like an angel. Her simplicity, yet adorability made her special. While the rest of the work, her INFECTIOUS SMILE could do.
They both stepped into the Resort.
