I know this series has ended a long time ago, but I am absolutely in love with the show and am getting obsessed. My fav couples would be KaSh, KaSu, SidMa, NikBhi (Nikki/Abhi), RaKaan (Rahul/Muskaan), and Atul and Anjali. My favourite Riddhima was Shilpa any day, then Sukriti then Jennifer. But I love all the characters in the show.
Ok so this is set after Panchgani, but their 2nd motorbike scene is in this episode so it's not in order. Throughout the story, it will be fiction but I will use some of the scenes from the show as a base line.
Shilpa do something fast, if you don't hold onto him then you will definitely fall. But if you do then it is going to be so awkward. Aa re yaar, what am I supposed to do? Great one more bump. Shilpa do not put your arms on him. Shilpa thought to herself.
She was on Armaan's bike and didn't want to put her arms around him. Then suddenly he stopped, but he stopped so rashly that she had to fall on him.
"If you don't want to fall you might want to hold on to me."
"Sorry, you were going so fast."
"Sorry, I'll go a bit slower next time. But please hold on to me otherwise you will fall."
Shilpa just nodded her head. He put his helmet back on, and she hesitantly put her left hand on his shoulder and her right arm loosely on the side of his stomach. He then grabbed her hand and put it firmly around his waist. She stiffened when he did this. Did Armaan want her arm around him? Why? The thoughts quickly ran through her head, but stopped when she felt the bike moving again. Through the ride Shilpa had butterflies in her stomach. She knew she shouldn't feel like this, but she couldn't help it. When they finally reached her house she quickly thanked him for the ride and started to make her way towards her gate. He grabbed her hand and pulled her to face him. He looked into her eyes, as did she. They stayed like that for a few moments before Shilpa looked away.
"Umm, mera jacket?"
She looked down, and took the jacket off. She handed it to him, thanked him once more and swiftly made her way to her house. His eyes lingered on her for a few more moments. Seeing her in this white salwar reminded him of when he rescued her from the fire. Why was he thinking about her like this?
Armaan why are you letting her have this effect on you?
It's not like I planned this?
Remember you love Riddhima.
But Riddhima loves Sid.
You and I both know that's not true.
But it should be.
Stop it Armaan.
Armaan continued to stare after her; she turned back only once and caught a glimpse of him staring and turned away again. His thoughts were interrupted by his phone ringing.
"Hello." "No I am not." "I'm sorry. I'll pay you back." "You can come collect the money from the hospital tomorrow." "Ask for Dr. Armaan." "Ok, see you tomorrow."
The fact that Shilpa threatened to tell Riddhima about this, he had to stop. He would keep his side of the deal. He wasn't rude like that. He got on his back and rode home.
The next morning Shilpa woke up and went to the hospital, when she got there she was greeted by a smug smile from Sid. She stared him down, as if there was something wrong with him.
"Sid, what is up with you?"
"Shilpa I said it was nothing."
"Doesn't sound like nothing?"
"Shilpa do you really want to know?"
"Yes, Sid. I do."
"Well a little birdie let slip to me, that you are actually really religious. That you have worn a salwar kameez, that your salwar kameez tore and you actually a very shy girl."
Shilpa stared at him in horror. How could Armaan do that to her? She thought the fact that she would Riddhima about the fighting would be sure to stop him from telling anyone. She could feel tears threatening to fall. She hated people knowing she was actually really shy. She felt a tear drop and she ran out.
"Shilpa! Shilpa! I didn't mean to hurt you!"
Sid ran out after her, but he couldn't find her. Instead he banged into Riddhima.
"Sid kya hoga?"
"Have you seen Shilpa?"
"I said something I shouldn't have. I'm sorry, but I have to go."
He zoomed past Riddhima and went to look for Shilpa. He once again banged into some, hoping it was Shilpa, but it was Armaan.
"Woah Sid, what's up?"
"Have you seen Shilpa?"
"No, kyun? Is she okay?"
"No, I said something I shouldn't have."
"What did you say?"
"I kind of told her what you told me."
"Well you weren't supposed to tell me this? You said it was part of deal you made."
"I didn't think you would tell her."
"Shut up. I need to find her."
"No let me look for her."
"No way, she will kill you. Even if she is in tears."
Sid just walked off. He looked all over, he was about to give up when he heard quiet sobs. He opened the door to the fire escape and saw Shilpa sitting and crying. He quietly went and sat next to her. She turned and looked at him and was about to get up.
"Sit down Shilpa."
"I do not want to talk to you."
"Shilpa, I'm sorry. I didn't think you would be upset about this. It was just supposed to be a joke, I didn't mean to hurt you. I would never purposely hurt you like this."
"I'm not mad at you. I just didn't think Armaan would tell anyone. I hate people thinking I am weak and shy."
"Hey, I don't think you're weak and shy. You are one of the strongest, most confident, and beautiful girls I know."
"No problem. That's what I am here for."
She smiled at him. He jumped up. He pulled her up.
"Now come on. Guess who you're helping today."
"If you say Armaan, I swear I might kill you."
"Nope. You're helping me today."
"Finally, I thought I would never be able to assist you."
"Hey you're my best friend. I need to give you some pointers sometime."
"The sad thing is that you're my best friend too."
"Ouch, you bruise me."
She playfully hit his arm.
"For making me feel better."
She hugged him, he hugged her back. The door banged opened. The 2 immediately pulled apart. They came face to face with Armaan and Riddhima. Shilpa saw Armaan, and rushed out.
Armaan stood to face Sid.
"Armaan she doesn't want to see you. She is really upset, just let her be for some time."
"Oh god, I didn't think would be this upset."
"She's better now. We talked and hugged it out. Now if you would excuse me, Dr. Shilpa and I have to go prep for our patient."
Sid walked off. Armaan couldn't believe that Sid was the one to make Shilpa feel better. Usually Armaan was the one who would do that.
"Since when was Shilpa working with Sid."
"Since Sid said that they had never worked together, so he assigned them together."
"And you had nothing against this."
Armaan rolled his eyes, and walked off. He would make Shilpa face him some way or the other.
Armaan had looked everywhere for Shilpa. He knew that she and Sid were finished with their patient. He finally looked in the last place he thought she would be. He opened the door quietly and saw her sitting on the bench staring into space. He quietly went down and sat next to her. This seemed to wake her out of her trance. She saw him and immediately got up, but he grabbed her arm. She froze, and looked at where he was holding her arm. She snapped back into reality and shrugged it off. She started to walk upstairs. He got up and backed her onto the wall. Her eyes widened with fear. His hand over her mouth. He just stared into her eyes for a few seconds before speaking.
"Listen. Don't say anything, just listen."
She didn't do anything but look back into his eyes.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry I told Sid. I totally forgot about our deal. I didn't mean to make you so upset, and I know I deserve for you to tell Riddhima. So I'll let you. You can tell her all you want."
He let her go, and she walked away, but before she was fully out the door she said something, that was so quiet that only she and Armaan could hear.
"I was never going to tell Riddhima anything."
And with that she walked off. He stared after her. What had he done?
