Ok ppl... here s the next part...:)
They talked about other stuff, pulling each other's legs. She suddenly looked at the clock displaying 2'o' clock time and thought that there were only twelve hours left and after that she would become Sakshi Rathod. She felt uneasy by this thought.
'I love u Arjun...' She messaged him teary eyed.
There was no reply... not even a 'love u too'
Sakshi felt sad at the lack of response.
"Abhi meri shaadi hui nai aur Arjun Se already itna door feel kar rahi hun... Ek reply bhi nahin diya mujhe us..."
Sakshi was cut short by her ringing phone. Her eyes went wide at the name displayed on screen. It said-
Sakshi jumped up from the bed holding her cell tightly. She didn't even take her eyes off from the cell screen once.
Arjun and she had been chatting from past one year but till now he had never talked with her... never called her... even once! and when she had wanted to call him, he had asked her a bit strongly to never even think of calling him or he would break all the ties between them.
And now... Arjun was calling...
Sakshi fumbled with the buttons due to her trembling fingers, before she received his call.
"Hello..." she said breathlessly, waiting for his reply eagerly.
" I love you too Sakshi! I love you a lot..." Arjun said. His deep, intense voice was husky with emotions. Sakshi heard his voice and her heart started beating wildly in her rib cage. She held a hand there as if she wanted to prevent it from jumping out. She felt faint with happiness.
"Arjun?" Sakshi said. Her voice got choked due to the sudden sobs. She was crying.
"Sakshi please don't cry! Sshh!" Arjun said hurriedly and she suddenly remembered the night before, when she had felt someone whispering the same thing to her. She shook the thought away. It was her moment. She wanted to live and enjoy it.
" Kyun nai aa rahe ho yahan Arjun? Please aa jao na! Main Sameer Se shaadi nai karna chahti!"
"Main bhi tumhari shaadi kisi aur Se hote hue nai Dekh sakta! Sach keh raha hoon... par main tumse kitna hi pyaar kyun na kar loon... Ek aisa sach hai ki tum jaan lo to Shayad hum dono humesha ke liye alag ho jayenge...! tum kabhi us sach Ko apna nai paogi! Isi liye main chup hoon... mujhe maaf kar do Sakshi!" Sakshi was crying badly now and it felt to her as if Arjun was crying slowly too.
"To kya main tumse door chali jaun?"
"Sakshi tum mujhse kabhi door nai ja sakti... I won't let that happen... am always with u... "
"Nai Arjun... I need you with me... so that I can talk to you... I can see you... so that I can live with you... forever... agar main tumse alag hui... to main Jee nai paungi... Arjun tumhare aane Se pehle I thought ki pyaar mere liye nai hai... kisi ke liye aap saans lene lago... unke liye jeeo... unke liye hanso... Wo kitne door kyun na hon bas unke hi khayalo mein raho... I thought main kabhi un logon mein Se nai ho sakti... fir tum aaye... aur mere Jeene ka nazariya badal gaya... ab tum meri zindagi ho... tum ho to sab Kuch hai... tum nai to main bhi nahin... ab mere dil mein tumhare alawa Koi nai... meri har soch tumse shuru aur tumhin par khatam... din bhar main Tumhara intezar karti hun... Har pal har lamha tum dhadkan ban kar mere dil mein dhadakte ho... aur Aise mein tum aana nai chahte? batao tumhare Bina main Kaise jeeun? Main mar jaungi Arjun!" Sakshi dropped down crying heavily.
"Sakshi!!!" Arjun shouted " don't u dare talk about dying! Agar Tumne fir se Ek baar Marne ki Baat kahi to main humesha ke liye chala jaunga! Samjhi ya samjhaoon? Tumhen kya lagta hai? I don't wanna live with you? Don't I love you? tum soch bhi nai sakti tum mere liye kya ho! Tum mere Jeene ki waja ho sakshi! You are the reason I livve... aur agar Mera pyaar saccha hai... to tum meri zindagi mein zaroor aa jaogi... aur ye tum nai janti ki... jitna Dard tumhen ho raha hai na? jitnii pareshaani aur worry hai na tumhen! Usse kahi zyada mujhe Dard ho raha hai! Mujhe tumse zyada worry hai... kyun ki tum sirf Ek pareshaani Se guzar rahi ho... aur mein? mere liye aage khaayi aur peeche kuwan hai! Main Koi bhi raasta apnaun! Aaun ya na aaun... tumhe kho hi dunga... atleast agar main nai aya to tum meri sacchai Se waqif nai hogi to khush rahogi!"
"Tumhare har sacch Ko apnane ke liye tayyar hoon... I promise!" Sakshi said.
They both kept talking for whole night and when they stopped talking the night had long ago disappeared making way for the wedding day.
Sakshi and Arjun stopped talking only when Aiesha came inside the room. She felt relax somehow. After talking with Arjun she had realized that they both loved each other a lot, he cared a lot for her and that their love can't fail...
Tera mera rishta hai kaisa
Ik pal door gawara nahi
Tere liye har roz hai jeete
Tujh ko diya mera waqt sabhi
Koi lamha mera na ho tere bina
Har saans pe naam tera
Kyunki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho
Zindagi ab tum hi ho
Chain bhi, mera dard bhi
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho
Aiesha fixed the maang tika on Sakshi's head and then covered her head and face with the ghunghat. No one was supposed to see the bride before wedding now. And after the wedding the groom would see her first.
"You are looking very pretty... tum ruko main aati hoon... ok?" Aiesha said and sadly turned back leaving Sakshi in the room alone with her thoughts.
Sakshi lifted her ghunghat and stood in front of the mirror. Her eyes filled up suddenly.
"Kaash tum kahi Se aa jao Arjun!" she mumbled and sighed.
Sakshi was still staring at her reflection when she felt someone standing behind her. She could feel the heat from behind as if some one was standing very close to her. She scrunched her forehead and looked at the mirror intently, but couldn't find anyone.
She turned suddenly and looked around the room. Then she felt it and this time she wasn't imagining it.
A definite kiss on her forehead. She stood motionless, scared out of her wits,when she felt hot breathe near her ears. She closed her eyes and started taking long breathes, when she heard it. A low and deep male voice, which she could never forget ever.
"You look beautiful Sakshi..." she opened her eyes wide and looked around but didn't find anyone. It was him... no doubt about that... it was her Arjun...
Sameer was sitting at the mandap impatiently. His sehra was irritating him. He wanted to get on with this marriage and finish it off soon. His eyes kept seeing Aiesha's face and he felt as if he has already lost a part of his soul.
"Koi dulhan Ko lao! Muhurat ka samay nikla ja raha hai!" pandit ji said finally.
She walked in surrounded by her cousins. Her big ghunghat covering her face. Sameer looked at her and turned away thinking only of Aiesha.They made her sit with Sameer and then settled behind.
The wedding rituals started. The warmala, phere, mangalsutra, sindhoor etc.
"Shaadi sampann hui... vidhi vidhaan poore hue! Ab aap dono pati patni hain!" pandit ji said.
Sakshi felt a sense of doom enveloping her brain.
"Ye Maine kya kar diya?!" Sakshi kept on asking herself as she started walking towards the direction of the hall, where every one was heading. The groom was about to open the bride's ghunghat.
O Ajnabee Mere Ajnabee...
Na Jaane Tum Kahan Chale Gaye Ho
Yaad Mujhe Tum Kitna Aa Rahe Ho
Suni Si Hai Dil Ki Gali
O Ajnabee Mere Ajnabee
Tere Pyaar Ki Nishaniya
Ban Gayi Kahaniya
Phir Se Mohabbat Phir Kaise Main Pyaar Karoon
Phir Se Wafa Ka Kaise Mein Ikraar Karoon
Tere Pyaar Mein Main To Dhali
O Ajnabee Mere Ajnabee
Kis Se Kahoon Pareshaaniya
Dil Pe Kar Ja Meherbaaniya
Pal Jo Beete To Lambi Judaai Hui
Ek Ek Pal Mein To Parai Hui
Aakar Mujhe Le Ja Abhi
O Ajnabee Mere Ajnabee...
