Continuation: Week of Raveena's wedding Day 4
Siddhi wakes up next morning to find an arm flung over her... momentarily confused she turns slightly and sees Kunal sleeping peacefully facing her. Details of last night come flooding back and Siddhi continues looking at Kunal and smiles. Tentatively she tries to wriggle out only to have Kunal pull her closer.
Siddhi lifts his arm to get away, but Kunal wakes up with a jerk. "Kya..." and sees his arm flung over Siddhi.."Oh... woh mujhe..Sorry" and pulls his arm away. Siddhi gives Kunal a weak smile and leaves to get tea ready.
While preparing tea, Siddhi's thoughts drift over the early morning scene and she questions herself over her reaction. "Main khush kyun hui Kunal ko aise mujhe almost hug karte hui sota hui dekh kar.. Yeh kya ho raha hai mujhe aajkal.. aur Kunal woh bhi aajkal itna khayal rakh rahe hain mera. Maine kal unko bed pe sone ke liye isliye kaha ki woh aaram se so paaye.. ya isliye kyunki main aisa chahti thi...Pichli baar jab aisa hua tha tab maine kyun nahin offer kiya?" Iss baari aisa kya alag tha? Kya main Kunal ko kahin..."
"Siddhi beta chai dekho ubal rahi hai..." And saying so Badi Maa rushes to Siddhi side and turns off the gas. "Beta kya hua kuch soch rahi thi?" "Ji woh Badi Maa... umm... Shaadi ka itna kaam hai na.. bas uske bare mein soch rahi thi. Kal sangeet hai aur itni tayaari bhi karni hai..." "Arey beta main aagayi hoon na.. sab ho jayega... Chal tu chai daal de aur main sab ko kehti hoon ki living room mein aajaye.. aaj sab chai ikathe piyenge." And saying so Badi Maa leaves to call everyone.
Everyone gathers in the living room to have morning tea. Siddhi still in deep thoughts doesn't participate much in the animated discussion going on between Chopra family and Kunal notices this. Feeling guilty he tries to catch her eye to let her know he is sorry but to no avail... Once she is done with tea, she excuses herself and gets back to preparing breakfast.
"Bhabhi aaj hame dress lene jaana hai na... woh jo hamne alteration ke liye di thi?" Raveena shouts. "Haan Raveena.. mujhe yaad hai.. Breakfast ke baad chalenge." "Tum log kaise jaoge?" asks Kunal. "Bhaiyya auto se.. aur kissese.." "Nahin main tumhe gadi mein lejaonga..Papa theek hai agar main Siddhi aur Raveena ko gadi mein le jaon" "Haan haan kyun nahin.. vaise bhi aaj bas ek do jagah pe hi jana hai cards dene..." "Theek hai papa"
Once breakfast is done, Siddhi comes back to her room to find Kunal getting ready. "Kunal bas 15 minute aur main tiyaar ho jaongi." "Hmm Siddhi... woh subah ke liye..." "Kunal koi baat nahin... jaisa maine pehle kaha tha...mujhe aap pe bharosa hai..." saying so Siddhi smiles at him and leaves to get ready.
At the store Raveena tries on her altered dress and parades in front of Kunal and Siddhi absolutely excited about her perfect wedding dress. "Acha ab chale.. bahut admire kar liye aapne aapko ko iss dress mein.. chalo chale.. kal ghar pe sangeet hai... bahut kaam hai..." "Ji Bhaiyaa.. waise Vikram ko yeh dress achi lage gi na?" "Kitni baar pooch chuki hai tu...Chal ab change karke aa... " "Ji Bhaiyya" and she leaves with Siddhi.
Siddhi helps her get out of the heavy lehnga and on their way back Raveena's eyes fall on a gorgeous navy blue colored lehnga... "Bhabhi woh lehnga dekho kitna pyaara hai.. aap pe bahut acha lagega... "Haan acha hai Raveena par mujhe nahin chaiyye" replies Siddhi remembering that Kunal hates navy blue.
"Bhabhi please mere liye try toh kijiye...please" and Raveena gets the dress and forces Siddhi to wear it.
Kunal on the other hand is waiting impatiently for the girls to come not knowing that Siddhi is now trying on a dress. "Hi Kunal" and Kunal cringes for he realizes that Richa is there.. He turns in the direction of the voice all the time mentally telling himself to act civil just the way Seema told him to behave. "Hi Richa tum yahan..." he questions. "Haan main yahan apni dress lene aayi thi...aur tum" "Raveena ki dress lene..."
"Bhaiyya Siddhi bhabhi ko dekho..." Raveena says excitedly and Kunal turns to see Siddhi in a navy blue heavily embroidered lehnga...and Kunal quits breathing. He loses his chain of thoughts and just continues to stare at Siddhi awestruck.
"Bhaiyya kaisi lag rahi hai bhabhi" "Ummm.." Kunal tries not sure he can really answer... he simply stares spellbound! Siddhi gives him a weak smile and says... "Main jaanti hoon ki aapko yeh rang acha nahi lagata,,, par Raveena ne bahut insist kiya isliye.." "Nahin bahut acha lag raha hai Siddhi."
"Main nahin loongi isi... Yeh aapka favorite color nahin hain..." "Siddhi tum yeh le rahi ho! Bas... Kuch alterations chaiyye iss dress ko ya theek hai?" "Kunal..." "Tum yeh leh rahi ho... Raveena iss dress ko khareed le..." Kunal says with finality in his voice.
Once Siddhi and Raveena leave, Richa turns to Kunal and says "Kunal tumhe toh uss rang se nafrat hai..." " Hai nahin thi...Richa time ke saath soch badalti hai...Pehle main sochta tha...ki jo mujhe pasand hai woh mere pyaar ko pehnna chaiyye... Par ab sochta hoon jo mere pyaar pe sundar lagta hai.. wohi meri pasand hai... Aur iss lehnge mein Siddhi bahut sundar lag rahi hai..." Richa hears this and is mad as hell... thinking to herself "Kunal ne iss paanch foot 2 inch ki ladkhi ko apna pyaar kaha kaise...Mujhe kuch karna padega..." "Richa vaise tum aa rahi ho na shaadi pe?" "Haan haan Kunal Raveena ki shaadi aur main na aaon... Raveena meri bhi toh behan jaise hai..." "Hmm Good " Kunal says.
Raveena and Siddhi return with the dresses all packed up and the four of them leave the shop. Once back home, Raveena while keeping away the shopping bags, notices a letter and opens it to see that it's from Rohit... essentially stating that he loves her a lot and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He goes on to say that if she gets married to Vikram, he (Rohit) will commit suicide...Raveena crushes the letter wondering what to do next..
