Riddhima stood frozen to the bottom on seeing her father in entrance of her. She pinched herself twice to ensure this wasn’t a dream.
Holding her breath, she went nearer to him and reached out her hand to the touch him, making an attempt to guarantee that he was certainly actual and never only a mere phantasm.
She frantically caressed his face with tears of pleasure streaming down her face.
“Papa!” She hugged him as tight as ever.
Meri zameen aasmaan, mere papa
Most important hoon jahaan hain wahan, mere papa
Ruthun jo most important tumse
Kitna darte ho
Rab ki tarah zidd meri
Puri karte ho….
Hone na dein kabhi mujhko giley
Most important chand kahu mujhe chandini dein
Kaise kaise jaadu kare
Mere papa, mere papa
Ishaan too ran as much as them and joined the hug. His situation was additionally just like his sister. His coronary heart was additionally overflowing with happiness, however he additionally had this deep worry for all of this to to change into nothing however his creativeness.
Sushant cried softly wrapping each his youngsters into his embrace. It had been nearly two and-a-half months since he had seen them, had felt them near him.
The remainder of the household appeared on, a few of them pleased to see the reunion, whereas others had a impartial expression on.
Anupriya’s pleasure on seeing Sushant again, knew no bounds. She tried to go as much as him, however Vansh stopped her along with his hand, giving her a piercing look. She obliged unwillingly.
her father’s dilapidated situation, Riddhima began panicking. “Papa, are you okay? The place had been you all lately? And the way did you get these scars and wounds? And…”
Gayatri intervened, “Riddhima beta, sufficient of your questions. First, convey him inside and make him sit down. Look, how weak he seems to be!”
Riddhima nodded and tried to escort Sushant inside. He had not even walked two-three steps forward when his trembling ft gave manner and he was about to stumble down.
However Vansh got here ahead and caught him in time. He supported him and helped him sit on the couch.
Riddhima felt touched by his gesture in the direction of him. For a cut up second, her gaze met with that of Vansh’s, till he appeared away.
She knelt down beside Sushant and checked out him painfully. The very one who had held her finger and taught her to stroll, had change into so weak and powerless as we speak that he wanted another person to assist him. Who had finished this to him, and why? She wanted all solutions.
After having made him drink some water, she grasped his palms in her’s.
“Papa, the place had you been for these two months? And the way did Vansh discover you?”
Sushant inhaled deeply. He shut his eyes and commenced narrating.
“All of it occurred on that fateful day after we went to Waves Mall on my birthday. Bear in mind how your Dinesh Chachu and Tripti Bua had known as me as much as meet them exterior the mall? I used the comparatively secluded emergency exit as an alternative of the principle one, anticipating it to assist me attain them faster.
However on my manner, somebody hit me on my head and I fell unconscious. I don’t know what occurred after that, however after I awoke, I discovered that….”
He paused for some time earlier than persevering with once more.
“I discovered myself to be held as a captive by Pathak.”
Riddhima was completely shocked to know this, and so was the remainder of the household too.
“I knew that Pathak was Vansh’s largest and oldest enemy. I had had one or two encounters with him after I had been serving to Vansh to arrange his enterprise a few years again.
As a way to take his revenge from Vansh and destroy his enterprise, Pathak determined to make use of me in opposition to him. I used to be the one who had guided Vansh in his preliminary enterprise endeavours, and due to this fact I knew most of the intricate and secret particulars about his cargo enterprise. And Pathak wished to extract all these info from me with a view to defeat Vansh.”
“I outright refused. I at all times thought-about Vansh as my son, and I couldn’t convey myself to betray him on this method. However…” Sushant began cracking up at this. “Pathak threatened to kill me. I nonetheless remained unfazed as a result of I’d fairly settle for dying, however not betray somebody.”
“However issues went out of hand when he mentioned that he’ll hurt my youngsters as an alternative, particularly you Riddhima….”
A lone tear escaped his eye. “I had gotten the information that Sunidhi, your mom, had handed away. This made me much more apprehensive that with out anybody to take care of you each, it might change into very simple for Pathak to hurt you.
I knew all about Pathak’s corrupt and lecherous methods, how may I ever convey myself to permit such a person to ever get near my beloved daughter?”
“Pathak had cleverly hidden this matter from me that Vansh had taken Riddhima and Ishaan underneath his wing. As a result of if I had identified that Vansh was defending each of you, then I’d have by no means given in to his calls for….
Feeling completely helpless and with a heavy coronary heart, I began leaking out essential particulars about Vansh’s enterprise one after the opposite.”
“However Pathak was not glad with inflicting such minor losses to the VR Empire. He wished to do one thing actually large. He discovered that if he managed to put his palms on some essential and secret paperwork, Vansh’s enterprise would undergo very heavy losses.
I knew the situation of these paperwork and the style by which these could possibly be obtained. However I had had sufficient of all this and determined to not inform him something about this in any respect.”
“Pathak began threatening me once more, and even tried to severely wound me. However I had made up my thoughts to stay tight lipped until the tip.
Nonetheless, Pathak started to make use of my weak point for my youngsters but once more. And this time he crossed all limits by speaking such issues that no father would ever wish to hear about his daughter.” He began tearing up. “Unwillingly and with numerous guilt, I informed him all the pieces about these paperwork too, and he managed to steal them effortlessly.”
“However Pathak wished to show me a lesson for making an attempt to face as much as him, and he additionally wished to indicate me what he was truly able to. So he bought Riddhima kidnapped….”
Riddhima recalled how Pathak had kidnapped her and informed her that he was doing this with a view to educate ‘somebody‘ a lesson for not abiding to his orders instantly. She may by no means probably think about that the individual that leech had been speaking about was her personal father.
Choking upon his tears, Sushant mentioned, “I can’t inform you how helpless I felt that day. I used to be locked up and tied in a room the place nobody had any entry to, and there was no manner I may assist my daughter escape from his evil plans. That day, I even felt ashamed of calling myself a father…”
“However as if miraculously, I bought the information that Riddhima had managed to flee from his clutches, protected and sound. I used to be so elated to listen to this, that every one the injuries that Pathak inflicted upon me later to vent out his anger on me, didn’t appear to ache me in any respect….”
Riddhima cried as she lastly realized the rationale behind the various scars that lined his face and physique.
Ek shikanj chehre par
Seh na paate ho
Mere liye kismat se
Bhi lad jaate ho...
Mere cross koi dukh aa na sake
Koi mujhe murjha na sake
Mera saaye ban ke chalein
Mere papa, mere papa…
Now turning in the direction of Vansh, Sushant sobbed, “However the ache of guilt that was consuming me away, was way more than the bodily torture that I endured. I do know what I did is unforgivable.” He folded his palms and pleaded, “Please forgive me. If you would like I’m even prepared to the touch your ft….”
Riddhima may really feel her soul burning from inside. Her Papa was her pleasure. And as we speak seeing her very pleasure bow all the way down to another person made her harm in a manner that she couldn’t clarify.
However swallowing all of her dignity, she remained silent. She knew Vansh hated betrayers.
Vansh knelt down earlier than Sushant and stopped him. “What are you doing, Uncle? You don’t must apologize, since you weren’t at fault. No matter you probably did, you probably did that to guard your youngsters. Had anybody else been at your home, he’d have finished the identical too.”
Vansh grew to become emotional noting the stark distinction between Sushant and his personal dad. “Riddhima and Ishaan are fortunate to have you ever as their father. In any other case, some fathers are so careless sufficient to depart their youngsters by themselves.
“Plus, this enterprise belongs to you at the same time as a lot because it does to me. No matter my firm and I’m as we speak, is all due to you….”
Riddhima appeared up at Vansh with tears and gratefulness in her eyes. When he turned in the direction of her, she discovered his eyes welled up too.
Going through her father as soon as once more, she requested, “However how did Vansh discover out that Pathak had held you captive?”
Sushant shrugged. “I don’t know….”
“I’ll inform you all about it,” mentioned Vansh, his voice so loud and clear, that it echoed by the mansion.
“Little doubt that Pathak had been my enemy since I began my enterprise. However since the previous few months or so, Pathak had gone a step forward to even perform many murderous makes an attempt on me.
Riddhima, do you do not forget that incident the place you had saved my life from a harmful man who had been hiding inside my automobile?”
Riddhima remembered that very effectively. That was the very first time she had met Vansh.
“Then one other try was carried out after I was travelling in my private yatch. Thank God, that I had bought the grasp of the state of affairs and saved myself.
All this was getting on my nerves. So I made a decision to ship one in every of my males, Sunny, as a spy to affix Pathak’s gang. Underneath the pretext of working for him, Sunny was truly passing essential details about Pathak to me all this whereas.”
“When Riddhima had gone lacking from the occasion all of a sudden, it was Sunny solely who had knowledgeable me about Pathak’s involvement behind this. In truth, he was the one who even knowledgeable me about her location, and that was how, I had managed to achieve her on time.
If I had it my manner, I’d have cherished to complete Pathak and his males off then and there for even making an attempt to the touch my Riddhima….”
“However I couldn’t try this. First, I needed to discover out about the one that was leaking the confidential info to Pathak. For that, I created sure conditions by which Pathak began trusting Sunny an increasing number of.
It was solely yesterday that Pathak introduced Sunny to a chilly, secluded room the place nobody was granted entry often. There he noticed Sushant Uncle confined inside.”
“As quickly as Sunny informed me this, I made a decision that it was time for motion. I took a few of my trusted males, and we carried out a sudden shootout at their hideout, taking the complete gang unexpectedly. After capturing Pathak and his males, we rescued Sushant Uncle from there too.”
Riddhima stared at Vansh feeling extraordinarily overwhelmed. She guiltily remembered how she had talked so harshly to him…
“I promise you, Riddhima, I’ll quickly discover your father for you,” Vansh had mentioned.
“I don’t want your charity! I’ll discover my father on my own!” she had snapped at him.
Coming again to actuality, she discovered her coronary heart overflowing with much more love, respect and admiration for Vansh.
She wished to fling herself in his arms eager to thank him for every and all the pieces he did for her and her father, however she was weary of everybody watching her.
Out of the blue, Ishaan went as much as Vansh and clung onto him.
“Thanks a lot, Jiju. Thanks for saving our Papa.”
Vansh initially was greatly surprised, however later patted his head. “It’s okay.”
Rudra who was quiet till now, spoke up, “How dare that Pathak do that with our households! And the way dare he eye our harmless Riddhima!”
“Harmless, my foot,” Chanchal muttered underneath her breath, nevertheless it was loud sufficient to be heard by Rudra who was standing proper beside her. He shot her an indignant glare and he or she shut up instantly.
“Don’t go away him, Vansh,” Rudra additional mentioned.
“After all, I received’t Chachu. Belief me on that,” Vansh replied with a harmful tone. “However earlier than that, there are some extra issues that must get cleared up….”
Wanting into Sushant’s eyes, he mentioned, “Gained’t you converse up even now? Until when will you retain defending them?”
Riddhima stood up all of a sudden, wanting clueless.
“What are you speaking about? Who’s Papa making an attempt to guard?”
“You’re sensible. You possibly can take a guess,” remarked Vansh.
As realization dawned her, she let loose an exclaim, “Dinesh Chachu and Tripti Bua! They’re additionally concerned in all this?”
Vansh exhaled sharply. “Sure, they’re those who initiated all this. Apparently, they paid a big sum of cash to Pathak to kill Sushant Uncle off. However Pathak backstabbed them by retaining Uncle alive when he realized that he may use him to destroy my enterprise as an alternative.
“Dinesh and Tripti Sinha grew to become extraordinarily livid as despite paying the cash, their work wasn’t finished. So, they began pressurizing Pathak.
Now Pathak was in a repair. He didn’t wish to return their a refund, nor did he wish to get away with the golden alternative to destroy me. So he made a plan. A really, very sensible plan.
“Bear in mind the physique that the police had discovered on the freeway and had mistaken it to be Sushant Uncle’s? It was all staged by Pathak, with a view to shut everybody’s mouths, particularly Dinesh’s and Tripti’s.
“Pathak had bribed a poor man having related measurements as Sushant Uncle from a neighborhood chawl. He was presupposed to burn himself to dying in change of which, his spouse, Kamala Devi would get a big amount of cash.
When the police discovered Sushant Uncle’s pockets subsequent to the burnt physique, they instantly assumed it to additionally belong to Sushant Uncle. Because the physique was so badly burnt, even fingerprints couldn’t be used to determine the physique.
However in his overzealousness after all, Pathak forgot all concerning the DNA check although. When the police carried out the DNA check, they discovered that the physique wasn’t Sushant Uncle’s. And all his plans to painting Sushant Uncle as useless in entrance of everybody, failed terribly.”
Riddhima was shocked to know that her personal uncle and aunt had performed such a giant sport to get her father killed. Although she had had a excessive suspicion on them from the beginning itself, however nonetheless she had half hoped that she was flawed.
And so they did all this for what? For a silly and nugatory piece of ancestral land? She may throw hundreds of such lands over their faces, however how dare they hurt her father? Her father, who at all times saved forgiving his siblings’ errors, one after the opposite….
However she wouldn’t make the error of forgiving them. By no means.
“They’d must pay for what they did to Papa,” she thought determinedly.
Sushant was shifted to one of many visitor rooms. Riddhima and Ishaan having discovered their father after such a protracted time period, didn’t wish to go away his facet even for a second.
“Come on, take some extra,” Riddhima pressured a spoonful of meals into his mouth.
“I can’t eat extra. I’m fully full,” Sushant protested.
“No you can’t probably be! You haven’t even eaten half of what was within the plate. And let me warn you, I’m not going to allow you to off so simply except and till you end all of it,” mentioned Riddhima. “You understand how cussed I can get.”
“That’s the reason Ziddhima title is apt for you!” laughed Ishaan.
Riddhima glared at her brother. “Excuse me? What did you simply name me as?”
“Ziddhima!” Ishaan repeated with a smile. “And don’t shout at me, huh. The only credit score for this title goes to Jiju.”
She grew to become even angrier. “What? Vansh calls me that behind my again? How dare he!”
Sushant couldn’t assist however smile this banter.
Riddhima positioned some capsules in his palm and ordered him to have them.
Ishaan interjected, “Sure, now you’ve to take heed to her at any price. After getting admission into the most effective medical faculties within the metropolis, she has began contemplating herself nothing lower than a full fledged physician!”
“I do know, JC Medical Faculty, isn’t it?” mentioned Sushant.
Riddhima was stunned. “How are you aware that when none of us have talked about it to you but?”
“Vansh did, whereas driving again to VR Mansion,” mentioned Sushant. “And never solely that, however he additionally informed me how you’ve gotten bravely dealt with all the pieces on their own. I’m so very, very pleased with you, beta.”
Saying this, he positioned a kiss on her brow.
“Oh! So Jiju solely praised Dids in entrance of you. He didn’t say something about me? As anticipated! All he sees in entrance of him is just her, be it day or night time!” Ishaan continued to drag her leg.
Riddhima flung a cushion at him, nevertheless it missed him. He caught out his tongue at her.
“By staying with Sia and Ishani, Ishaan can be slowly turning like them,” Riddhima scolded. She additionally felt a bit of embarrassed about how Ishaan was teasing her by taking Vansh’s title in entrance of their father.
Sushant patted Riddhima’s head. “Vansh additionally informed me about his and your engagement. However I wish to ask you if you’re pleased on this relationship?”
“Glad? She is exceedingly, tremendously, supremely, outstandingly pleased!” giggled Ishaan.
“You received’t hold quiet till you get a spanking from me, proper?” requested Riddhima scrunching her nostril.
“Papa, you simply ignore him. He has this behavior to at all times hold blabbering. You want relaxation too and it is best to fall asleep instantly.”
Making an attempt to stifle his chortle, Sushant obediently snuck underneath the quilt, and Ishaan adopted swimsuit.
“I’m going to sleep subsequent to Papa, not you!” He snuggled in opposition to his father and confirmed her a thumbs down as an alternative.
“Wonderful. However let him sleep and don’t hold him engrossed in your lame jokes for the remainder of the night time,” she warned earlier than switching the lights off.
When she got here out of the room, she discovered Mrs. D’souza ready for her.
“Vansh Sir needs to satisfy you. Within the outhouse.”
Riddhima realized that this was the proper alternative. She couldn’t converse to him a lot in entrance of the household, however in personal she’d make sure that to thank him profusely.
Within the outhouse, she discovered Vansh comfortably sitting in his chair along with his legs unfold throughout the desk in entrance, like a king.
“Vansh, I actually…” She started to say however Vansh shushed her up.
He snapped his fingers and two individuals appeared to enter inside. Riddhima was shocked to see that they had been none apart from Tripti and Dinesh themselves.
She felt herself raging from inside. Had homicide been authorized, she would have killed these two monsters instantly.
“Did you convey that alongside what I had requested for?” requested Vansh in an intimidating tone.
“Sure, sure. Right here it’s,” mentioned Dinesh quivering with fright. “These are the papers of that home that we had snatched from Sushant Bhai. And these are the papers that belong to our ancestral land. We don’t need any share from it. We’re prepared to offer it away and switch all the pieces in Riddhima’s title. However please,” he joined his palms. “Forgive us and allow us to go.”
Riddhima couldn’t imagine their insolence. After doing a lot they anticipated her to forgive them?
“Pay attention, I’m not fascinated with these silly properties of your’s….”
Vansh signalled her to maintain mum, which she instantly did.
“And what about your personal respective homes? I had requested you to switch these additionally in Riddhima’s title….” Vansh mentioned sternly.
Tripti requested, “If we give away our personal homes too, then the place would we reside?”
“I don’t blo*dy care!” roared Vansh. “You could sleep on the roads or in a type of shelter properties. In the event you each didn’t even suppose twice earlier than robbing Sushant Uncle’s home, then why ought to I?
And should you individuals don’t adjust to my situation then….”
A paranoid Dinesh interrupted, “No, no! We’ll give away even our personal properties. Listed here are these papers.”
Vansh collected all of the papers and handed them over to Riddhima.
“Your culprits are standing proper earlier than you. Now, it’s upto you to determine what you wish to do with them. Do you wish to ship them to jail, or torture them till dying or one thing?”
Tripti snarled at him, “This isn’t truthful, Vansh! You had promised us that if we transferred all the pieces in Riddhima’s title, then you definately’d pardon us. However you turned out to be nothing however a blatant liar!”
Vansh bought up from his chair and walked nearer along with his eyes capturing her a dying stare.
“Lady! Communicate correctly to me or in no way. You won’t know however messing with VR will solely get you in additional hassle!” mentioned Vansh menacingly.
Dinesh fell at Vansh’s ft and began pleading to him, however he saved a bored expression on as an alternative.
Tripti walked in the direction of Riddhima.
“In the event you received’t forgive us, what would occur to our youngsters?”
“And did you as soon as suppose what would occur to me and Ishaan earlier than making this murderous plan?” she screamed on the prime of her voice, her feelings getting the higher of her.
“I don’t perceive what sort of a sister you might be! As a sister, I might even lay my life down for my brother, however you….you however wished to remove your personal brother’s life simply to fulfill your greed?”
Her voice started to shake as she remembered the ordeals that her father and his household needed to undergo due to them.
“My Papa at all times saved forgiving you all, he by no means raised a single query even if you snatched our home from us! He at all times believed in retaining all relations intact, it doesn’t matter what. In the event you’d have requested him, he’d have fortunately given away his share of the land to you each, too!”
Tripti mentioned, “After all, Sushant Bhai would give away the land to us willingly. However would you and your vile mom let him try this…..?”
Smack! She felt a tough slap throughout her face. For a second or two, she simply stood there fully aghast. She had not anticipated her niece to lift her hand on her.
“You s-s-slapped me?” Tripti requested nonetheless not out of her shock.
“Sure. I’d have wished to choke you to dying, however I can not take regulation in my palms,” mentioned Riddhima trembling with mood. “However you each will certainly be despatched to jail now.”
Tripti was about to raise her hand to slap her again, however Vansh threatened her.
“Don’t you dare contact her even! Now, you solely have an try to homicide case operating over you. But when I would like, I’ll add many such circumstances over your head that may additional extend your imprisonment.”
Tripti rolled her eyes at them. Turning in the direction of her niece, she mentioned, “After getting such a rich and highly effective man as your fiance, you’ve gotten began flying excessive up within the sky and your tongue has change into even sharper!”
Riddhima huffed. “My tongue was at all times sharp. Did you neglect how I had insulted you and even proven you the doorwhen you had come over to combat with me?”
Tripti swallowed exhausting as she remembered that incident.
With a snap of fingers, Angre was known as inside.
“Make all the required preparations to ship them to jail,” mentioned Vansh menacingly. “And guarantee that they get the utmost punishment potential.”
“You would like is my command, Boss.” Angrw bowed earlier than him and with the assistance of another males, took Tripti and Dinesh away from their sight.
Riddhima wiped her tears away and composed herself. She tried to speak to Vansh, however he left for his room citing some pressing work.
Riddhima being her common adamant self, determined to observe him into his room even.
Nonetheless when she entered inside with none knocking, she was left shocked.
Hey everybody! That’s it for as we speak guys.
Additionally, I do know that this chapter might sound very complicated to all of you with all the knowledge being dumped like that. So actually sorry about that.
