I wish I could get a deeper insight into Armaan's actual feelings for Riddhima and vice versa...If he loved her as much as he claimed what was it that was preventing him from letting her in...and did Riddhima truly understand his anguish about his past or she just wanted to be the person responsible for making amends in his life because they were in a relationship? You have described the intensity of Armaan's feelings for R so much that it's just difficult for me to imagine the two falling out just because of one major incidence...It looks like at some level, just like her brother and most likely her parents, Riddhima also believed that Armaan didn't deserve her!!
Coma back with another update soon!! Don't disappear on us like that!! It's a crime to get people addicted to your fantabulous writing and then keeping them starved of it
Just kidding!! Take care of buisness and coma back soon with another rocking update!!
Gosh Vidi, I am blushing bright red after reading your praises!
It's a real delight to know that you thought it was this good. Honestly, it's the best feeling in the world, but man, I hope I can continue to live up to your expectations!
I think a lot of Armaan's itensity with regards to Riddhima is down to the fact he built her and their relationship up to be this monumental thing. She was his first love. He'd never actually loved anyone until she came along, in fact he had a different girl almost every week. And he never expected to feel anything for her, but she didn't fawn at his feet, she treated him pretty indifferently to begin with and that was what made him fall for her. So afterwards, when they broke up, he saw their relationship through rose-tinted glasses. In his mind he conjured up this idea of them as destined to be together and he couldn't let her go, even though she had moved on. But at the same time he's always had this fear of letting anyone in. And even though he loved her, he couldn't quite break down that last wall. He was in denial about his feelings towards his father, he has been all this while. He thought that if he pushed it to the back of his mind and never confronted it, it would just go away. So when Riddhima tried to make him confront it, he blew up at her. Because it terrified him. Shilpa succeeded because of what happened with Riddhima, because he realises that he didn't handle the situation well and also because, with Shilpa, he feels like she can understand him on some level, even though she hasn't been through that experience. Riddhima came from this perfect family and I don't think she ever fully understood how much pain Armaan's father had caused him. Armaan never brought the subject up. She only knew what had happened because Muskaan had filled her in on the basic facts. She couldn't understand how Armaan could still bear a grudge when he knew his father was seriously ill and she thought that if she made him see his father they could go back to having a father-son relationship again. She thought that would make him happy, but because he'd never spoken to her about his father, she didn't realise that it wasn't as simple as that.
When he yelled at her and tore the ticket up she was upset, but she would have forgiven him for it. All she needed was some time alone, to calm down and get over the shock of him blowing up at her like that. But when Armaan turned up drunk and attacked her brother, she saw a side of him that she didn't like. Her family were always more important to her than Armaan,and she couldn't stand the fact he attacked her brother. It scared her too because she thought that if he attacked Abhi, he could do it to her too. And that is why she broke things off with him. But I think in a way you are right too, she never did quite think him good enough for her. She didn't like the fact her parents and brother disapproved of him and his broken family always upset her too. So, I think, in the end they would have drifted apart anyway.
I hope that helps you to understand it better. Basically Armaan had a bit of an ifatuation for Riddhima since they broke up. He didn't want to accept it was over and that's why he romanticised their relationship so much. But now, slowly, he's coming to see that it wasn't the perfect relationship after all. And now he's met Shilpa he's starting to realise that maybe Riddhima never understood him after all.
I'll try to update quicker, work permitting. I'm really excited about the next update and I hope you will enjoy it. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks again for all your kind words and you're support.
