Sid didn't sleep that night. The nights incident kept lingering in his mind. Her touch, her kiss and her sweet voice acted like salt in his fresh wound. The fact that she left him forever killed him. The thought of being with her never, pained him. He decided to go back to Houston the next day. He wanted to start the new year on a fresh not but even there God played a cruel game and his new year started in the arms of the girl whom he loves more than anyone yet cant be with her.
His flight was scheduled on the night of 2nd Jan. He decided to indulge in some photography before leaving the place in the eve. So at midnight he took couple of pint and his camera and walked to the beach. He finally dozed near the rocks at late mid night and was wide awake at the sun rise. The sun rise at the beach was so beautiful it made him forget everything, at least for a while. He opened the other pint, gulped a sip and walked towards the water to click some pictures.
Meanwhile Nikki and Anjie were up for jogging. There is nothing like jogging on the beach early morning.
Sid who was unleashing his hidden photographic skills in the best way but turned around when he heard a familiar voice call his name, 'Sid..?'
Anjali and Nikki stood their astonished. They couldn't believe whatever Riddhima told them was actually true.
Nikki & Anjali : "SID!"
Nikki was the first one to hug him followed by Anjali.
Nikki : "You idiot! cant you atleast inform us before goinf somewhere!" she punched his arm.
Sid : "Sorry bhabhi, i really needed a break"
Nikki : "Ya alright! AND Look at you! You look so.. soo.. shabby! don't you have the habit of taking bath!?"
Sid was still in his new years eve out fit. He was at the disc the whole day and went to his room at night to get his camera. He hadn't changed or freshen up yet.
Sid smiled sheepishly shuffling his hair "Actually i was on my way to the hotel to freshen up. Was out since New Year's eve."
Anjali : "So Riddhima actually met you on New Years eve?"
Anjali : "OHHH we thought it was the hangover!"
Nikki : "hey what's this on your cheek!" she clutched his jaw and tilted his face a bit. "UHH! Sid!! you hooked up with someone!!"? Nikki was almost yelling.
Sid was clueless "What!? God stop it bhabhi! Why do you girls drink so much if you cant handle the hangover"
Anjali who was inspecting his cheek closely saw the lipstick mark. She scrutinized him again and saw another mark on his white shirt. She cupped her mouth in shock and said "On his shirt too!!"
Nikki : "Oye shut up! Don't try to cover up! We have the evidence." She pointed towards his shirt.
Sid inspected his shirt and saw the mark. He also wiped his cheek with his shirt and the shade of lipstick spread on it.
When the two girls eyes narrowed he spoke. "It's Riddhima..."
"WHAAAT!" the two shrieked together! "you hooked up with RIDDHIMA!!"
Sid : "GOD! NO!! I didn't hook up with anyone!! Sheesh! Please! I am not like that guy who would take advantage of the situation!" Sid immidiately regretted when he blurted out the 2nd sentence.
Nikki and Anjali glared at him. They wanted to hear more. Especially about the second sentence.
Sid gulped another sip from the bottle.
"Sid! it's just 6 and you already started!" Nikki said
Sid smiled wryly and started walking. The girls followed him. He started talking about how they crashed into each other at midnight countdown at the disc. He said how Riddhima 'accused' him of leaving her for Tamanna and slapped him.
Nikki and Anjie shared a glance when he said that. They understood their chat about Tamanna had worked.
Then when he said she kissed him for slapping the two girls mouth became an 'O' shape. It only widened when Sid said how Riddhima pulled him to the rocks and hugged him and kissed him on his chest.
He continued about the conversation he had with her. And how he was leaving when 2 goons came, and how she said 'he is my husband', and how he carried her back to the disc and she refused to let him go n all that.
Anjie and Nikki couldn't believe what they just heard!
Anjali : "Are you talking about my sis, Riddhima Gupta"?
Sid : "i guess i am.."
Nikki : "Muskaan was right! She definitely need help!"
Sid : "What help?"
Nikki looked at Anjie and said "Nothing... so what were you telling about some guy earlier..?
Sid : "Nothing.. i just remembered something..." "Anyway i have to go freshen up. Good to see you both.."
Anjali : "You wanna join us for breakfast..?"
Sid : "No NO.. i am fine.. besides i have a bit more to do here before i leave in the evening."
Nikki : "You are leaving!? Where to?"
Sid : "Houston.."
Nikki "ohh.. ok.."
Anjali : "I think you should stay for another two days.. may be..?"
Sid : "Naa.. for what.."?
Anjali : "Riddhima..."
Sid : "WHat happened to Riddhima..!?"
Nikki : "Nothing Sid.. It's just that we are taking her to a counselor.
Sid stared at them quistionably.
Anjali : "She is a bit stressed these days.. Thought counseling will help her.."
Nikki : "Why don't you meet her..?"
Sid : "No NO.. not another goodbye..!" he paused and continued. "Okay you both. Will see you sometime. I really got to go now. He hugged them and trotted towards his hotel.
Muskaan and Riddhima were up by the time the girls were back in the suite.
Muskaan : How many calories have you burnt?
Anjali : Quite a lot..!
Riddhima was brushing her hair "why are you both looking at me like that..?"
Nikki : Sid...?
Riddhima : SID!?
Anjali : "we met him at the beach"
Muskaan jumped from the couch "WHAT! He is really here!? And Riddhima was saying the truth??"
Riddhima : "You didn't believe me when i said i met him!"? she glared at the three and continued "where did you meet!!? where is he now!?"
Anjali : "It's not just what you said we didn't believe but what he said was also shocking for us"
Riddhima : what did he say!?
Nikki : "you kissed him!?"
Riddhima : "WHAT! He said i kissed him!? HE SAID I KISSED HIM!" she raised her voice.
Anjali : "You didn't kiss him..?"
Riddhima tried to recollect the nights events.
Riddhima : "i kissed him!?... 'i kissed him! yeah! i kissed him and slapped him..? Riddhima remembered how she crashed on to him.
Nikki : "No you slapped him and kissed him! AT MIDNIGHT!"
Riddhima was now quiet and a bit embarassed.
Muskaan burst out laughing "ha ha ha ha OH MY GOD!! Riddhima! now i really don't think you need any help! It's quite obvious after YOU KISSED HIM." she stressed the word intentionally.
Riddhima : "I dunno alright! I was drunk! In that state i would have even kissed you"
Nikki : "but you dint! you kissed only him!" she teased.
Riddhima : "Hey! i was atleast drunk! But he was not! Why didn't he stop me!"
Anjali : "Believe me Ridz, if he hadn't STOPPED you, you would have ended up doing a lot more than just kissing" she laughed giving hi5 to Nikki.
Muskaan and Riddhima just kept staring at the two girls who are in splits!
Anjie and Nikki finally told them everything that Sid said.
Nikki : "So this is what happened!"
Riddhima was trying hard to recollect all those they just said. She succeeded a bit. She rememberd the midnight 'slap & kiss' and how Sid reminded her about 'Armaan' near the rocks. And about the two goons. But that's it.
Anjali : "you know when we asked if he hooked up with you, he kinda lost his cool for a bit and said he is not that kind of guy who would take advantage of the situation"
A shockwave passed through Riddhima. She knew Sid was refering about Armaan and 'that night in the tent'
Nikki saw her reaction and asked : "do you know anything about it Ridzi..?"
NO! NO! Riddhima was quick to respond.
The girls felt something wrong and immediately changed the topic.
Muskaan : "damn! i should have come for jogging! I really wanted to meet this guy! He is so cute!!" she sighed.
Riddhima stared at Muskaan : "When did you meet him!?"
Muskaan bit her tongue n said 'i have seen his pic!'
Riddhima : hmmm...
The girls could clearly see Riddhima's face was radiating. And the doubts of her beaing a split personality became stronger!
Anjali : "ok girls!! go dress up! Our appointment is at 10!"
More than Riddhima, the other 3 were excited about this meeting with Dr Brian. Riddhima has become like a puzzle for them and till they solve it they felt they wont be able to sleep peacefully! Riddhima on the other hand was completely aware of the tangle her life is in. She was back in her confused state! She couldn't understand if she still loved Armaan why is Sid occupying her mind all the time. Why should she feel bad if he goes back to Tamanna or any other girl. There were many questions that was bothering her and somehow she felt meeting Dr Brian would clear her mind and FINALLY she might be able to think clearly after a long time! So the four got ready to meet Dr Brian for a life changing experince? may be?!To be continued...!!
