For the glimpse of previous story,
Chapter 64: “Loopholes, Loopholes everywhere!!”
The episode starts with Riddhima coming out of Annie’s room. She was even more confused after observing Annie’s behaviour. On one side was the story, Annie was telling and On the other side, were the things she found out at the kidnapping spot. On one side, Annie seemed knowing nothing and on the other side, her expressions were telling a different story. She was walking slowly totally engrossed in her thoughts when someone held her gently. She came out of her thoughts and looked up finding Vansh.
V: Where are you so lost Riddhima? I have been calling out your name but you were not listening!
R(concerned): Vansh? You here? Why did you get up? Doctor asked you to relax na! You are not ok!
V(calming her): I am absolutely fine sweetheart! I felt completely ok so I got up when the nurse was done dressing my wound. You tell me what happened? How’s Annie? Have you met her?
R(concerned): Are you sure you are feeling fine?
V(assuring her): Yes Riddhima! Look I am standing all fit na! Don’t worry! Tell me What happened?
And then Riddhima narrated him everything about her findings at the kidnapping spot and Annie’s inquiry. She also told him about how Annie was behaving suspicious. But she didn’t tell him anything about Nayra or the way Annie responded to Nayra’s picture. She just told him that Annie didn’t recognize the sketch.
R(confused): Vansh! I don’t know but this all seemed illogical to me. Her behaviour and her story didn’t match! I doubt if she is telling everything or maybe hiding something in some pressure or fear!
V: Maybe she is telling the truth!
Riddhima looked up at him in a questioning way,
Vansh replied understaning her gaze.
V: I mean…Look Riddhima! We have been thinking about all this girls trafficking and that sketch girl. Thats why, we connected the dots of Annie’s kidnapping towards it also. Maybe and Thankfully, Annie is not related to it. Maybe you are…
R(cutting him): Maybe I am just overthinking?
V: Not exactly overthinking. Maybe that sketch girl is actually involved in girls trafficking but Annie is not. Thats what I am saying. (Gently holding Riddhima’s shoulder) Look Riddhima! Annie is scared. She is traumatised! And I have not seen anyone being scared and telling a lie jn that state. Maybe Annie doesn’t want to talk about all that and that’s why, she become hesitant and behaved such!
Riddhima became silent. Vansh’s talks were making sense but she was not satisfied completely. In her mind, she thought to solve this later. Calming herself, she said,
R: I think you are right Vansh! Let’s go home. Everyone would be waiting!
After that, Riansh took Annie home where everyone was delighted and peaceful after seeing her being rescued with no physical or emotional harm!
Kabir’s Uncle introduced Riansh to Kabir’s parents where Riddhima again stared Kabir’s father suspiciously and he looked away.
As it was the Sangeet event, the next day, Eveyone was busy preparing for it. Annie had also befriended everyone in a short time. She was resting in her room. Vansh and Riddhima were also asked to rest as they had gone through a tough day. They had been in Riddhima’s room. Vansh was sitting on the couch busy on his laptop and Riddhima was holding phone in her hands but was busy deep in her thoughts. Vansh stared up at her and asked,
V(smirking): Sweetheart! So much engrossed in my thoughts huh?
Riddhima smiles and replies,
R(smirking back): Come out of your dreamland! There are much more important things in my life!
V: Oh really?
He smirks. Riddhima raises her eyebrows. Vansh gets up from his place and starts moving towards Riddhima.
R(confused): What are you upto?
Vansh’s smirk turns into a mischievious smile. He raises his eyebrow. Riddhima realizing what he is upto, says,
Riddhima(smiles): Vansh! No! Not now!
But Vansh doesn’t stop. He steps up the bed.
Riddhima holds up a pillow in her hand to protect herself from Vansh. Vansh tries to snatch the pillow but in all the struggle, the pillow gets torn away. And that very moment, Vansh picks up another pillow and a pillow fight starts between the two.
Ishq mein Marjawan plays….
Riddhima and Vansh, with all their might, were beating each other with torn pillows and the pillow feathers were all there in the room. After sometime, they both stopped, sitting beside each other and catching their breaths. Vansh was staring Riddhima and Riddhima looks back, craning her neck. Their noses touched and they were staring directly in each other’s eyes. Vansh leaned forwards trying to make the lip contact. Riddhima also closed her eyes. Their lips were just inches away when the door opened with a bang,
Dadi(shocked): God forbids! Why am I alive to see this day! The whole family is planning their marriage and these two love birds have no patience at all! Ajay! Your son has become absolutely shameful!
Ajay was also standing there having no control over his laughters and Riddhima and Vansh were totally shocked, now standing on the opposite sides of the bed being totally embarassed!
V(embarassed): Atleast You should knock Dadi!
D(jaw dropped): I should knock? And….(looking towards the room) Oh my….What have u both done in the room! Riddhima and Vansh!!….(trying to be strict) I have decided! Now, you both will stay 5 inches apart from each other. And Vansh! Dare you come in Riddhima’s room again!
V: But Dadi!
D: Not another single word! You are going to stay in my room from now on.
V: Come on Dadi! I am not a kid!
D: But your actions are absolutely childish! Riddhima! This was not expected from you!
R(trying to be innocent): But Dadi! I tried alot to resist but this Vansh…
Vansh’s jaws dropped.
D: Yeah Ya! I have seen your resistance also.
Riddhima and Vansh both bowed down their heads knowing that now, they have no escape. Looking at the two, Dadi started laughing with Ajay. Riansh realized that they were just being pranked by Dadi and Ajay. So, they also started laughing on their embarssing moment.
D(smiles): May God protect you two my cutiepies!
Both Riansh come forward and hug dadi.
Ajay: And what about this all mess? Were you Riddhima again made a pigeon!
R(jaw dropped): Dad!! You also!
And then they all started laughing.
As the room door was opened, Riddhima saw Rudra standing far away and watching them. She tried to call him but he went away. She got again in her thoughts. Ajay and Dadi left the room and Vansh found Riddhima standing deep in thoughts.
V(serious): What happened Riddhima?R(serious): Vansh! Don’t you find Rudra uncle’s personality suspicious? I mean I feel like there is something about him.
V(calming): Come on Riddhima! I am noticing you since morning. You are really overthinking about everything. This job of yours is really affecting you. I think you need to take a break. You have become an absolute detective. There is nothing suspicious about anyone neither Annie nor Rudra uncle. Its our marriage happening! Enjoy it!
V: and about the sketch…we will find that girl!
Listening to the word of sketch, Riddhima’s expression changed. She tried to divert the topic.
R: Lets go! Everyone would be waiting.
But Vansh had noticed it. He stopped Riddhima and said,
V: Riddhima!..You know it well that I know how you have been hiding something from me. I don’t know what it is…but about one thing, I have become sure! You definitely know something about that sketch girl!
Riddhima tried to remain neutral. Saying this, Vansh left the room leaving her behind. Riddhima thought to herself,
R: I am sorry Vansh! But I cannot tell anything until I get to know that Nayra is alive or not. The moment I get to know about it, I will tell everything to Aryan if she is alive. But God forbids, if she is dead, then I will not tell anything to anyone but will tell you everything.I don’t want Aryan to go through the same pain again! I need to ask Annie once again about Nayra. I am sure she definitely knows something!
After this, Riddhima takes her phone, opening the sketch, She goes towards Annie’s room. Annie opens the door. After having a light discussion with her, Riddhima says,
R: Annie! Look! I have been working for intelligence for 5 years! And believe me! I have got the experience to detect lies even with the blink of eyes. And this makes me sure that you definitely know something about this. (Showing her the sketch) You know something about her!
Annie becomes quiet and looks here and there.
R: Annie! I have no habit of beating around the bush. Tell me! What do you know about Nayra?
Annie was lookng here and there fidgeting her fingers.
Riddhima tried to convince her holding her hands,
R: Look Annie! Its very important for me to know about her. Nayra is Aryan’s sister. She was long lost but I recently got to know that she is alive! She was found some days back and was badly injured. We took her to the hospital and some goons kidnapped her from there. I will leave no stone unturned to find her if she is alive! Only you can help me in this! We know nothing about her!
A: Didn’t she tell you anything? I mean she had been with you!
R: No! We didn’t get the chance to ask her anything. Before we could, she was again kidnapped. That’s why, I need you!
After thinking for sometime, she said,
A(scared): Ye…Yes…I know her. Her name is Nayra!
R: I know this! I want to know what you know about her! Each and everything! Have you seen her?
A: I…I have seen her once! The goons have brought her from somewhere at the place where I was kept. And…she was with me held hostage. She was badly injured and scared. But I didn’t get the chance to ask her anything because the goons…..
She started crying,
A: The goons tortured her badly. I pleaded them to leave her but they didn’t listen. They kept on beating her and…and then, not able to bear the pain anymore, she…she lost…once again! She couldn’t bear that torture and breathed her last! (Crying badly) She died!
