Riddhima was shocked to see the outcomes displayed on the display in entrance of her. She believed that she had written the examination effectively and was anticipating an honest rank.

However right here, she hadn’t simply obtained an honest rank, she had obtained far more than that. She had topped in her state!

She saved pinching herself to verify she wasn’t dreaming or one thing. When actuality lastly hit her, she began leaping about in pleasure. She unlocked her door and bumped into the lounge, the place Sushant and Ishaan had been sitting tensed.

“And God blesses such good folks with solely good issues.”

Riddhima rapidly took the elders’ blessing by touching their toes.

When she approached Chanchal, she noticed that she had a sulken face on.

“Chachi, received’t you say something? You appear to be unusually quiet right this moment,” Riddhima taunted her.

Chanchal tried to pressure a smile. “What can I say, Riddhima? You’ve got rendered me completely speechless along with your achievements.”

Now, it was Sia’s and Nandu’s flip to congratulate her.

“You don’t understand how pleased I’m for you!” Sia stated excitedly. “So a seat in Masters in Paediatrics is confirmed, proper?”

“Not solely Paediatrics, however she will be able to get any damned topic and faculty she desires,” stated Ishaan. “She is the God rattling topper for crying out loud!”

Riddhima discovered Nandu to be just a little gloomy.

“What occurred? How did your story telling competitors go?” she requested.

“I didn’t win any prize,” Nandu replied wanting down.

“However no more than you,” Riddhima stated in return.

Everyone was chatting amongst themselves, however Riddhima’s consideration wasn’t there in any respect. Her eyes danced about the entire place, searching for him.

“About the identical particular person whom your eyes have been looking for since fairly a while,” stated Urvashi.

Riddhima began blushing whereas the remainder began grinning amongst themselves.

“Why don’t you go as much as meet him?” Urvashi prompt.

Ignoring the teasing glares everybody was giving her, Riddhima ran as much as Vansh’s room.

“Vansh?” She knocked on the door however no reply got here from inside.

She pushed open the door and surprisingly, she discovered the room to be empty.

Riddhima’s eyes fell upon a observe saved on his examine desk.

Sweetheart,

I do know that you’re very keen to fulfill me. Inform Angre, and he’ll convey you to the place the place I’m at present at.

—VR

“What on this planet is that this? Is that this some form of sport? And the way did he know that I needed to fulfill him?” Riddhima questioned.

She obtained down the automobile and stretched her arms, making an attempt to do away with the sleepiness. She tried to have a look at her environment and was mesmerised to see an enormous, stunning home in entrance of her.

“Why did Vansh ask me to fulfill him right here?” she contemplated.

Earlier than she might realize it, Riddhima felt a fabric being tied over her eyes from behind.

“Vansh, what are you doing?” she whooped in delight.

“How do you know it’s me once I purposely used an altogether totally different fragrance to confuse you?” Vansh requested, securing her blindfold tightly.

“Your contact,” Riddhima stated softly. “I can acknowledge that anyplace on this planet.”

“Oh, is that so?” he stated this in a teasing tone. Supporting her by her shoulders, he tried to steer her into the home.

“Why did you blindfold me? I can’t see something, what if I journey over and fall down?”

“Did I ever allow you to fall earlier than? So how would I allow you to fall right this moment?
However for those who nonetheless are uncertain, then I’ve an answer to this.”

With none prior warning, Vansh whisked her into his arms, incomes him a light-weight slap on the again from the girl in query.

“I got here right here to let you know one thing essential, and right here you might be, busy finishing up your individual drama,” she tried to sound irritated.

“Persistence, my love. Persistence.”

He swiftly carried her inside the home after which, he rigorously put her down.

When she undid her blindfold, she was astonished to see that the room wherein she stood, was adorned with lights, balloons and flowers.

Vansh pushed a serving trolley in the direction of her. A beautiful wanting chocolate cake rested on it, with “CONGRATULATIONS DR. RIDDHIMA” written on high of the cake.

“How do you know about my outcomes?” Riddhima requested her mouth extensive open in shock. “I had particularly requested everybody on the mansion to not inform you about this, as a result of I needed to let you know all about it myself.”

She seemed crossed and turned her again in the direction of him.

“Nobody advised me something, sweetheart,” he assured her. “I’ve my very own sources the place I acquired this information from.”

“However that’s not truthful that you simply use your energy to seek out my outcomes out with out me telling you about it,” stated Riddhima.

“It isn’t my fault as a result of even I used to be keen like hell to learn how a lot you had scored on this examination, understanding very effectively how essential this examination meant to you. Apart from,” he began grinning. “Every little thing is truthful in love, and love.”

He made her reduce the cake and stuffed a big piece of it into her mouth.

Riddhima set free a moan, discovering it troublesome to chew upon such a big slice directly.

“You’re keen on candies, proper?” he quipped, playfully feeding her with some extra of that cake.

“Do you need to kill me or one thing with overeating?” Riddhima requested after she was lastly executed consuming all of that.

Vansh saved grinning. Riddhima slowly approached him conserving her arms folded behind herself.

“And that is what you get for messing up with me!” She smeared some cake over his face, utterly taking him without warning.

Riddhima pulled a face at him and began operating round, making an attempt to dodge away from Vansh’s grasp. However she was no match for his lengthy legs, and he caught her inside no time.

She saved laughing and making an attempt to free herself from his clutches.

Vansh, then again, saved adoring her. Her candy laughter was like soothing music to his ears, and he might carry on listening to her pleased voices for ever.

“And that is what you get for messing with me, sweetheart.” His husky voice sending goosebumps over her pores and skin.

He introduced his cake-smeared face near her’s, and rubbed his cheek towards her’s, thus smudging the cake onto her as effectively.

“Thanks for this pretty shock, Vansh,” Riddhima whispered, leaning near his ear.

“Effectively, there’s one other shock for you as effectively,” stated Vansh with a twinkle in his eye. “How did you want this home?”

Riddhima scanned the home round. “It’s such a phenomenal place. However whose home is that this? Your’s?”

“Nope. It’s your’s.”

Riddhima blinked at him in amazement.

“That is your own home from now onwards,” Vansh reiterated. “A present from my facet to you.”

Though she was thrilled to see his gesture in the direction of her, however she additionally felt weary of accepting such an costly reward from him.

As if studying her thoughts, Vansh stated, “You’re my fiancee, my soon-to-be spouse. Don’t I’ve the rights to reward you one thing of my alternative, regardless of it’s value?”

“However…”

“And this reward is a part of my backup plan, too.”

“Backup plan?” she was completely confused.

“You already know my household, how they’re. At all times making an attempt to intrude upon our romance. So at any time when we really feel that we aren’t getting sufficient personal and romantic time for ourselves again on the mansion, we are going to right away head right here. What say?” A naughty smile began enjoying on his lips.

“I’m all for it, Mr. Raisinghania,” she replied coyly.

Vansh drew open the curtains, displaying the balcony behind it. However what excited Riddhima past phrases was that the ocean may very well be seen from the balcony.

“Oh my God, Vansh! This appears so….so…heavenly and aesthetic,” She squealed ecstatically.

She closed her eyes. The sound of the crashing waves and the perfume of the ocean, appeared to invade her senses.

“I knew that you simply love seashores. So, I believed {that a} sea-facing home can be the very best reward. This could be our bed room.” Vansh enunciated on the final two phrases, throwing a significant look in Riddhima’s route.
“Do you prefer it?”

“I adore it,” she stated nonetheless having fun with the gorgeous sight.

“And I really like you.” Vansh wrapped his arm round her waist.

“I really like you, too,” stated Riddhima. “Received’t you present me the remainder of the home?”

Vansh held her hand and took her together with him throughout the place.

“That is your own home. So that you’ll get to determine upon the inside decor, furnishing, portray and the likes.”

Riddhima rigorously scrutinized all the pieces round her.

This room would be the visitor room. This would be the examine. And this would be the kids’s room. And…”

 

“Excuse me? Whose room did you say the final one was?” Vansh requested her instantly.

“Youngsters’s room,” she repeated herself.

“You imply….our kids?” he requested slowly.

“In fact. Our home may have our kids in it solely, not any neighbour’s kids, proper?” Riddhima noticed Vansh fondly smiling and searching elsewhere.

She narrowed her eyes at him. “Now, why are you shying like a woman on the point out of youngsters?”

“I’m NOT shying,” Vansh stated annoyedly. “It’s simply that….I didn’t know that you simply had began fascinated by our kids, too.”

“What’s there to consider in that? After marriage, we may have youngsters one high-quality day or the opposite.” Riddhima stated this as if it was no large deal.

“Sure, in fact. To be trustworthy, Riddhima,” Vansh stared proper into her eyes. “I can’t wait to have youngsters with you.”

She chuckled, “However you’d have to attend for that….”

Vansh sighed, “I do know that. We’ll get married after you full your Masters, that’s, after three years. So there’s nonetheless a really very long time till then.”

Riddhima scrunched up her nostril. “If you’re getting so impatient, then why don’t you allow me and use your different choices? Ahaana, Anita, and so forth, and so forth, who I’m positive can be able to marry you right this moment itself….”

Vansh didn’t even let her full her sentence and pulled her face shut in the direction of his. “Three years are nothing. I can maintain ready for you for a lifetime even.”

She intently seemed into his darkish and penetrating eyes. “However I’m afraid, I can not do the identical, Vansh.”

Vansh felt bowled over by her phrases. “What do you imply?”
He tried onerous to cowl up the ache from his voice, however was unable to take action.

Riddhima walked few steps again after which out of the blue, went down on her knees. Vansh seemed on conpletely shocked.

“Vansh, you could have quite a lot of persistence, however sadly, I don’t. I can not bear to reside with out you any longer. Will you marry me? Not after three years, however inside these few days itself?”

Vansh couldn’t imagine that she had simply stated that. “You possibly can’t be critical, isn’t it? Are you joking or one thing?”

“I’m hell critical, Vansh!” she squealed in pleasure. “Cease looking at me like that and reply my rattling query! I can’t maintain kneeling down like this endlessly as a result of my legs are beginning to damage now. So, sure or no?”

Vansh helped Riddhima to face up and made her sit on the sofa.

“What occurred to you unexpectedly? Weren’t you the one who needed to finish her training first after which solely get married?”

“What occurred to you unexpectedly, huh?” Riddhima questioned him as an alternative. “I had anticipated that you simply’d begin leaping in pleasure on the point out of our marriage, however then again, you’re appearing displeased.” She shot a piercing look in his route. “Don’t inform me, that you’ve discovered another person behind my again.”

Vansh raised his arms in exasperation. “Can we please dispose of these unhappy jokes and get just a little critical?”

Riddhima grasped Vansh’s hand. “I’m very critical. 5 years again, I used to be younger and over formidable, with my major focus being my profession. However now that I’ve matured over these years, all I need to do is to cool down and start a brand new life with you.”

Vansh took a deep breath. “I do know, what you feel. However you will need to perceive that this isn’t going to be simple. Managing marriage and research hand in hand is not any cakewalk. How will you have the ability to do that?
Riddhima, for those who’re doing this simply since you’re feeling responsible for conserving me ready for a lot time, then please don’t.
If I had my means, I’d need to marry you this very second, however not at the price of your research.”

“No, I’m not doing this out of any guilt. Moderately, I’m doing this as a result of that is what I would like,” defined Riddhima. “I do know that it might be powerful to concurrently cope up with each the issues, however it’s not one thing that’s unimaginable. I’ve seen fairly a number of ladies doing it, and I’m fairly positive I can do it, too.”

She continued, “In fact, this may be doable provided that you’d not flip into a kind of husbands, who turns into insecure on the considered his spouse staying busy at her work as an alternative of giving him all her consideration.”
She appeared just a little damage as she remembered how Vansh had behaved together with her earlier relating to this matter.

Vansh learn between the traces and began regretting his unfiltered actions. He realized that regardless of being a lot older and skilled to Riddhima, he had acted very immaturely.

“I’m extraordinarily sorry for my rash behaviour. I do know, I shouldn’t have executed that.” Holding her arms near his chest, he additional stated, “I promise you that this wouldn’t repeat once more.”

There was a second of uncomfortable silence between the each of them.

Riddhima lastly determined to talk up.
“Vansh, you must perceive that enterprise and the medical discipline, each work in completely alternative ways. In enterprise, all the pieces runs in a hard and fast and orderly method. Whereas the medical discipline is filled with uncertainities, urgencies and disorganisation.
Not solely whereas I’m finding out for my Masters, but in addition once I’ll be taking over a job in a while, there is likely to be many incidents once I’d be assigned emergency duties. Resulting from that, I’d must miss out on essential events or events, anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, and so forth. I can not assist all of that.”

Vansh assured her, “I promise you, that I’ll help and cooperate with you, it doesn’t matter what come could. I do know that I can act just a little too cranky at instances, however I’m keen to work on that.”

Riddhima smiled at him, and for some time, they each had been misplaced in one another’s eyes.

“So?” Riddhima requested, coming again to the fact.

“So?” he requested her as an alternative.

“Unbelievable, Vansh!” Riddhima groaned in frustration. “I posed a query to you, however you don’t even care to reply it.”

“So you might be getting determined to know my reply, eh?” he requested with a smirk.

Riddhima nodded, him expectantly.

He grabbed her hand, firmly drawing her towards his chest, and pulled her into a protracted, passionate kiss.

Along with his lips nonetheless pressed towards her’s, he lifted her up in his arms and swirled her round like there was no tomorrow….
______________________________________

The Sinhas and the Raisinghanias gathered collectively for an essential dialogue at VR Mansion. The household priest had been known as too, and he was presupposed to be finalising a date for the wedding.

Vansh and Riddhima grew to become nostalgic as they reminisced how they each had bribed the identical priest to delay their marriage, 5 years again. However their situation, it appeared that now they’d bribe him to drag an earlier date.

The priest lastly seemed up from his astrology ebook. “As per their horoscopes, there are solely two dates this 12 months when the stated couple can get married.”

Gayatri turned just a little anxious. “And that are these dates?”

“One date is three months later. And the opposite is one week later. Which one would you favor?” enquired the priest.

“I feel three months later can be high-quality….” Gayatri and Sushant tried to say.

“No! One week later is the higher choice!” Each Vansh and Riddhima stated in unison, shocking the remainder.

“Bhai! So desperate to marry, huh?” Sia began teasing.

Not desirous to miss this golden alternative, Ishaan joined in too, “Oho! Each of them are equally burning on this hearth of affection and fervour.”

Vansh glared at his siblings, however they remained unfazed and continued their session of leg pulling.

Sushant stated, “However one week is such a much less time to do all of the preparations. How will we handle?”

“Papa, there’s no want of doing any preparations. We will simply maintain a easy wedding ceremony ceremony, inviting solely the shut family members and associates,” Vansh prompt.

“What are you even speaking about? I had at all times dreamed of a grand celebration for my grandson’s marriage with all the required pre-wedding festivities,” Gayatri stated.

“However I and Riddhima are usually not a lot in favour of all these ineffective features previous to marriage.” Vansh tried to get his Dadi and the others to comply with him, however to no avail.

“I feel Bhai is barely concerned with doing marriage and the ‘submit wedding ceremony customized’,” Ishani giggled.

Everybody current there understood the precise which means behind her phrases. The youthful lot started to snort, whereas the elders tried to keep up a stoic expression, selecting to disregard her assertion.

However Vansh and Riddhima, then again, appeared very embarrassed.

Urvashi stated, “If Vansh and Riddhima themselves need to get married inside one week’s time, then we, being their mother and father, ought to bless and help them.
So far as the pre-wedding features are involved, I feel if all of us work collectively together with the marriage planners, then there received’t be a lot downside.”

Sushant, Gayatri and Rudra appeared to agree with this, and at last, it was determined that the wedding can be held one week later.

After all of the congratulatories and sweets had been exchanged, they sat down making an attempt to type out how all the pieces might be carried out additional.

A mischievous thought started to kind in Ishani’s thoughts, and she or he determined to behave upon it as quickly as doable, earlier than she forgot about it.

“Dadi, you forgot about an important customized that’s carried out earlier than the wedding. And that’s…” she smirked at her brother. “The bride and the groom can not meet one another till they get married.”

Vansh nearly spat out the water that he was ingesting on listening to this.

“What nonsense!” he stated angrily.

“Ishani is totally proper,” Gayatri backed her up. “It’s thought-about to be very ominous. God forbid, if some mishap occurred due to that?”

Vansh was boiling in rage. How dare this Ishani fill Dadi’s already superstitious thoughts with much more crap? He’d certainly educate her a lesson!

Later, Vansh discovered Ishani, Raj, Sia and Ishaan gossiping amongst themselves.

He went as much as them, showing as indignant as ever. “Ishani! What was the necessity to inform all that to Dadi?”

“Come on, Jiju! It’s solely a matter of 1 week,” joked Ishaan. “Don’t inform me that you may’t management your self for even one week additionally.”

At this, everybody began laughing as loud as doable.

Vansh noticed Riddima seem across the nook and advised her, “When you can’t hit your brother, inform me. I’ll fortunately do it, as an alternative.”

“Oh hiya! Watch out of what you say, Jiju. Don’t take your brother-in-law so casually. Or else, I wouldn’t hesitate in refusing to let my sister go together with you after the wedding.”

Vansh turned in the direction of Riddhima for some assist.

“Effectively, he truly has some extent,” smirked Riddhima.

Vansh murmured, “Present how a lot ever tantrums you need earlier than marriage, Riddhima. However as soon as we get married, I’ll…..”

“Riddhima! What are you doing right here, beta?” Gayatri known as her out, wanting fairly displeased.

“Didn’t I let you know that you simply can not meet Vansh till the subsequent week?” she continued. “Include me.”

Saying this, she took Riddhima by her hand away from there, whereas Vansh was left to grouse to himself.

Hey everybody! That’s it for right this moment guys. Do remark.

Peace out!
