Swaragini made rivanjali- OS- a token of gift by riya

For rivanjali ~~ love our triplet group.

Camera rolls.. Scene starts with an airport .. It’s the famous indira Gandhi national airport at Delhi.. Camera focuses on a girl who is coming on the ground floor via a ramp.. She moves down the escalator and we are able to see a better view of her.. She is wearing a pink gypsy top and black jeans with sporty shoes .. She looks sizzling good .. Nope ,… Nope.. She looks sizzling cute.. An aged lady passes by her and she politely moves to help her in carrying her hand luggage.. Then along with that lady she moves out of the terminal..

Old lady- beti!!! Thank u for helping me .. Now my daughter will come she will take me … What’s ur name child..

The girl- Me.. My name is Anjali.. And u don’t take tension.. I’ll be there till ur daughter doesn’t come here..

Old lady- ok Anjali.. U have a pretty name dear .. May god bless u.. Stay happy and stay blessed..

Soon , the old lady moves with her daughter.. And Anjali moves out of the airport.. As she turns , a girl comes and blindfold her..

The girl was wearing a red frock upto her calf portion with a blue open jacket and long boots …

The person ( trying to change his voice) – Guess who I am ..

Anjali- not again Eva.. Riya tell ur kiddo to remove her hands.. She will fall and will make me fall too..

Eva ( the girl who blindfolded Anjali) – haww.. Anjali .. U again got me.. That’s bad.. I thought to surprise u ..

Before Eva could continue, another girl engulfed them in a huge Beary, bone crushing hug. She was wearing a sleeveless jumpsuit of black colour with weird patterns on it and her stellitoes on it.. ( hehehe.. All are my favorite dress so mentioned it .. )

Eva and Anjali unison- riya … Jaan lo gi kya.. Chodo Hume

Riya- Anjali , I missed u so much sis.. (Whispering to anjali )Thank god u came .. How would I had managed kiddo alone

Eva- I heard tat .. U both are plotting against me .. Very bad.. Do I irritate u ??. ( both the girls shake their head) . Haww.. I won’t talk to u both ” with pouty face”

Riya and Anjali in unison- oh.. We see.. But what will happen with this dairymilk which we brought for Eva.. Let’s have it .. They pretend as if they are opening the wrapper of the chocolate.. Omg.. It’s so tasty

Eva- who told, I am angry with u both .. U both are so sweet just like chocolate..

Saying this she grabbed the chocolate in their hand and stuffed it in her sling bag.

Anjali and riya chuckled seeing this.. They always loved to tease their beloved younger sis whom they loved till infinity. The three shared a hug and then moved to explore their native place.. Delhi,, ( I wish that could be my birthplace but I live in Kolkata )

Anjali was the eldest in the trio.. Then came riya and youngest Eva.. Riya and Eva stayed in Delhi whereas Anjali was studying in madaras away from her sisses.. As the vacations started, the trio collected to have some fun.

In the car,
(The car was premium Mercedes Benz.. A convertible car… Class cla )

To the driver,

Anjali- Bhaiya.. Ye Ac kyu nahi chal raha hai..

Riya- Bhaiya.. Rear cooler on kariye

Eva- Bhaiya .. Window shields band kariye aur car upper kholiye

Anjali- Bhaiya .. App Ac band kariye aur window kholiye

Riya- no Bhaiya.. Open the Ac

Eva- no no open the upper shield..

The trio keep chattering.. Frustrated the driver says..

Driver- app log car chala lijye.. I am going by bus to house.. I will inform Bade Saahab that u all have gone for outing

rivanjali together- ohkk Bhaiya.. Aap jaiye

As the driver goes.. Riya jumps from the back seat to the driver seat.. Plucks the seatbelt .. Opens the car shield and starts the engine..

The trio laughs remembering their superficial acting, they did to make the driver go..

Eva- riya.. I want to also drive.. But u won’t let me do so because of the under 18 tag..

Anjali- and me too cause my license is not dere in the car..

Riya- accha ohkk .. I have my license so I am driving.. Anjali , next time don’t forget ur license and Kiddo, u need to wait 4 more years..

Evanjali- ok ok .. Devi .. Stop it pravachan now and increase the speed.

Riya- let’s rock my cat
And she increased the speed to 100.. ( don’t beat me for not following the rules.. But by the way I can do anything here.. After all This is Riya’s creation)

They reached a pain puri stall and all hopped out of the car.

Rivanjali- Bhaiya make spicy pani puri .. Give 10 patte and don’t stop..

The trio started their competition together and ended it also together.. They smiled seeing the scene..

Next, they moves to the mall, gip, great indian palace… They shopped and shopped and shopped.. From Mac make up products to damilano bags.. Dresses from mark Spencer’s to stelle shoes. They enjoyed and then their father send a man who took their goods to home..

And they moved to worlds of wonder which was situated inside the gip mall,( guys it’s a water park ).. They changed into their swimming costumes and leaped into the cool water.. When Eva felt thirsty, the trio came out of the water and moved to the filter.. As they stepped out , the three started dancing on their toes.. The ground was hot as a coal.. Their foot became red. They rushed and found a cool ground beneath.. It was more like a dance floor.. Water oozed out from ground.. Showers from above.. And loud song played.. They danced there till Riya saw something.. She held their hands and dragged them to a place… An artificial beach was constructed there with tides overflowing .. It was beautiful.. Life could not have been more good for them at that moment.. Suddenly anjali smirked, she had a mischievous plan in her mind.. She told Riya about it and both giggled while Eva looked on .. Riyanjali knew that Eva was damn scared of the slides.. And there they were on to do something notorious..

Riya: kiddo lets go upstairs there.. Wow that would be awesome.. It looks so beautiful..

Eva- ok .. Let’s go..

Riya winked at anjali and they moved upstairs.. Riya held Eva’s hand from one side and anjali held Eva’s other hand from other side

Riyanjali shouted 1, 2 ,3 and both jumped along with Eva on the slide and then straight into the pool.. Shocked Eva, shouted but these two people .. Heheehe u know them.. But Eva enjoyed it .. No doubt..

.. After a long day and night out , rivanjali came back to their house..
Tomorrow was an important day..

(Guess why.. Hehehe Anjali don’t bash me for doing so .. I am getting u married to vk.. Varun kapoor aka our Sanskaar.. It is a ts … But I will continue only if u say.. Eva don’t mind.. Thought to just surprise u both with this short writing..)

Hello people.. This is SHANAYA .. Riya’s bestie.. I have written this and posted This but each and every word written has come from Riya’s mouth.. It’s purely her work only my hands moved.. Thank u .. ??? hope u don’t mind using ur pic.

    • Mugdha

      Eva…please don’t do this…and if u stick to your decision then I’m also leaving…cause u r Meher r my besties here…both of u matter to me..for u both mein mammiji bannekeliye bhi taiyar hogayi ..anyways…i love u yaar don’t leave…I promise we won’t make any changes…but please don’t leave..

    • Exactly evu… I don’t want anyone esle as my sautan… Dekh humne mill k ek sautan ko saas bna dia n ek sautan ko bhn… Mt ja na…. ?????

      • Mugdha

        Yaha sab uska mazak urarahe hai….Riya is a good friend of hers right?Accha nehi kiya yaar meri Evu tumhari wajaseh chali gayi….if u think about age then i’m elder to u and Anjali….age doesn’t matter…we were just having fun…your practical thinking…….if u think about age then i’m the most perfect one among all cause we have the least age difference..i’m 21…and the most important thing..Varun is married…that’s what u call reality…its is for fun…reality agar yeh hai ki Eva useh kafi choti hai toh pher yeh bhi hai ki Varun is married.i’m the sasuma….u came back and changed everything….doing partiality between your two friends….acchi baat nehi hai yeh…don’t get her married to VK in your ff…that’s not the prob…the prob is u r calling her Varun’s bacchi….

      • Mugdha di.. This is shanaya… Riya’s friend.. I understand what u r saying.. But if u see from Riya’s side she is not at fault.. Unintentionally Eva has been hurt by Riya.. And she is almost on the verge of crying.. Even she is not thinking practically.. She was also joking.. In fact if u have read the message then u will get clearly.. Riya never ever wanted to hurt her.. Neither she wanted to make changes nor she is doing partiality.. Pls she just had an operation.. And from where did the age factor come.. She was just joking guys.. She knows very well that vk is married.. And making Eva her kid or something.. She thought it a silly joke .. A silly thing and posted it.. If one makes it practical .. I can’t say anything.. Sorry mughda di .. No offence.. Just that I know Riya from childhood.. She never does any age difference.. U all know her sister misha.. Rite.. She is of Eva’s age.. And she allows her to use her phone or another any thing…. She even plays with small kid.. Then from where the hell did the age point come.. She was sobbing when she read this.. And Eva.. I have nothing much to say for u .. Just that if u felt bad .. We are extremely sorry.. And Riya loves her kiddo so much.. And it was just playing up yaar.. Neither is she getting u married nor anjali in her ff..
        Mugdha di.. I am really sorry but Riya is really hurt by ur comment.. She was excited to narrate the second part.. But now she is all dull

    • Eva .. Sorry .. Sorry .. I was just joking.. In fact in my storyline SWARA is only getting married to SANSKAAR.. That is vk is getting married to helly.. So sorry.. We were just teasing u.. I won’t make any changes.. It was just a joke.. I thought that I’ll tell u today and will stop all this.. It was just that anjali told me that she likes vk so much … So I thought to just prank.. None’s taunting u .. U will always be a part of our family… Don’t leave.. See I am crying.. Pls .. Pls u know na I am sensitive queen.. Pls.. Sorry
      (Written by SHANAYA)

      Eva.. Riya never underestimated u .. Never ever.. She did not have a single idea of this saas bahu game.. She wrote about anjali because once anjali told her that she liked vk..she had no idea that u also.. Morever she was just teasing and playing up when she got little info about this.. I only told her as I read meher’s ff.. Pls don’t go.. Riya never wanted to make changes.. She toh told me that today afternoon I ought to message in the group that she is not getting vk Marrried to anjali and she was joking.. Pls she is very sad.. Not good for her health.. Forgive her

      • Her storyline was that the three triplets would go to the wedding of swasan where we will see more sisterly moments.. Nowhere she was putting anjali’ marriage she was just joking and u all took it damn seriously.. Sorry if I have hurt anyone with my comment

      • I’ll clearly tell her storyline.. In first chap she wanted to have an intro of 3.. In second she wanted to start with the night bedroom scene when the 3 will receive a call from SWARA who would invite them for swasan wedding. A curious Eva would ask their love story and SWARA will tell swasan love story .. Last chapter they will assemble at swasan’ wedding where they will have some sisterly moments and together they would see some swasan moments.. Basically thus was her storyline.. And anjali’ point she just added for fun.. Had she known about u all and that this small prank of hers will become such a big issue.. She shan’t have done it only.. Can u pls tell me what is her mistake in all this..

      • Pls come back Eva.. It’s me Riya.. And go to hell shanaya.. Don’t read her comments.. She has got some mental disease that’s why she has messaged such long long idiotic comments.. Just come back.. ??????

    • Sanjana

      Shanaya….Riya…I’m Sanjana,Janvi/Eva’s school friend….i don’t know what exactly happened here….but Shanaya……u think that your friend got hurt..i even feel the same….i’m a silent reader of all the ffs….i have never commented..not even in Janvi’s ff..Janvi suggested me to visit this site….she doesn’t even know that i’m in tu….Riya loves her kiddo…..ya Janvi said that someone here calls her kiddo….she is a 14 years old girl…..u people r elder to her…u know what…..she told me about this shot…she send me the link in fb of this….i read it….and i could feel her happiness…..just then everyone started to taunting her…telling her that she is very young..and all….this was for fun only….i’m of her age so i understand…btw she left already…i guess maybe she’ll be back when our exams end(She is a nerd)….maybe middle of june and won’t comment anymore(That’s what she said to me)…..Meher,Mugdha,Riya and Anjali…..i heard a lot about u all….please never hurt her..that’s a request…..she can handle some rude things…but she can’t handle it when her dear ones play like this…Janvi if u r seeing this by any chance then please don’t be angry on me for talking in between..but i can’t see this.Shanaya is supporting her friend..so i need to support my friend.Riya was that u who had brain tumor?

      • Mugdha

        Sanjana…then can u please ask her to talk to us for once…i know studies r very important but still…shr has many friends here eagerly waiting for her reply…and Shanaya..i’m sorry if Riya is hurt..I have seen many situations like this..that’s why I knew it from before that something like this is going to happen…a small issue will turn into a big one..Riya is one of the closest friend of Eva….u don’t actually know human mind…Eva took it seriously…think about it..aagar tum hoti toh tum hi aisahi karti….when u would be called your fav actor’s child…and everyone else mock at u…that hurts..Riya sweetheart don’t be hurt..Eva will be back..she has too..

      • Yr I agree things went too far in jokes… But the main thing is we all are already missing her..n no one wants to hurt her.. She is such a loving girl… No one is enjoying… U just bring her back n I promise no one will tease her or taunt her… But bring her back… Only u can change her mind… Plzzzz bring her back..

      • idk what to do.. It’s my fault only.. Not anyone’s else.. I came and created this mess.. Unknowingly, I have hurt Eva to such an extent that she left commenting in her own group,, mugdha di is right.. Guys pls u all patch up .. I realize that it’s my mistake and I am quitting from this group .. U all continue as u were.. Waise bhi my head pain has increased from the time , I have started using or typing from my phone so it would be better I quit.. And pls whoever reads it , from the group ., don’t u dare think that I am leaving because of u all.. I am leaving because my head pain and muscle cramps are increasing.. That means dose of medicines increasing… Then harmful to health and then more injections.. And I hate injections .. For all This I would tend to murder the doctor and I’ll end up in prison.. So better I leave it.. Love u all and Eva .. I am really sorry.. Kiddo I am really sorry.. Trust me age never mattered to me.. Never ever.. ???

      • Sanjana

        Yeh ladki kabhi nehi sudregi…she is not answering my calls and not replying also..I’m so sure that this girl has no idea about this mahabharat..else she would have replied…people chill..she’ll be back…I’m sure…

      • Now enough… !!! We are not playing leaving leaving…. !! ??

        Koi kahi nhi ja raha?… Apne zara zara se dimag me zor mat do koi… !!!

        We will start a new family… I mean new game… Something like sautan vs sautan 2….

        Let Eva reply once…

        Sanku that we know she will come but we want her now…

        I desperately agree with anjali…

        Lets forgive and forget…. Lets start new…

      • Anjali

        Bas… no one is leaving…. we were a triplet…. now u both will leave me??

        No… I don’t allow it… I won’t allow it… my eva has to come.back… and riya… u can take all the time in the world to get better… but not quit this group

        Friendship isn’t something that you quit….

  14. swasan

    I realy wasted my time reading this how there be any competition between Anjali and swara seriously total waste of time

    • Mugdha

      Batane Ki koi zarurat nehi thi yeh..no one asked for your opinion…Anjali Swara seh kaam nehi hai..

    • Swasan .. We all are swasanians.. U can’t compare one person with another.. U can criticize me but not anyone else for something which had been posted by me

  15. Even the next part has been written.. I was about to post but before that thought of checking the comment.. And she felt very bad seeing the situation
