It was Humeria's birthday everyone was singing for her but she could hear only one thing!
Humeria: Kya aap humse mohabbat karte hai Ayaan?
Ayaan: Nahi! Na mai aapse mohabbat karta tha na karta hoon!
Humeria: Dur ho jaaye sab! Muje please akela chod dijiye aap sab!
She was just about to step out of her room when Ayaan held her hand.
Humeria looked back with anger towards Ayaan.
Humeria: Khaas karke aap! Hamare paas mat aayein!
I was shocked Humeria never did that to me before.
She was always sweet, loving and caring.
It clicked back to me why would she before?
She loved me!
A hell lot!
Her love for me melted her always but this time i had attacked the very place which defended me!
I realized it later that everyone had already left Humeria's room!
I was the only one left!
I saw the tissue papers which had sindoor on it!
The way she had applied the sindoor on her forehead and the feeling of her being of someone elses actually killed me from inside.
The moment when she told me she has a husband when i knew there was no one I was yet jealous!
I could not bear Vikram with my innocent soul!
Vo gussa kyun thi?
Usse sab yaad aa gaya?
He remembered the words he had told to Asad that day!
" bhaijaan agar koi aapse itni mohabbat kare toh kahin na kahin hum bhi unse mohabbat karne lagte hai"
So did I fall in love with her?
How can I fall for her when she hates me?
When she loved me i didnt even realize her feelings!
If i had to fall for her why didn I before? I had years!
There is only one person who has answers to his all questions!
Asad and Zoya were having their lovey dovey coffee with each other when Ayaan jumped in from the window!
Asad: *without looking back*
Pata hai Ayaan mai humara main door tudvane ka soch raha hoon kyunki vo toh sirf naam ka door hai official main door toh mere kamre mein hai!
Zoya: Aur haan apna ye sofa bhi hatane ki soch rahe honge taaki tum sofe pe jump karke na aao har baar ki tarah!

Zoya: Aur tum apne bhaijaan se aisi baat tabhi share karne aate ho jab tumhara mann bhar aata hai! Tumhare dil ko vahin insaan cho sakta hai jisse tum pyaar karo! Tum Humeria ke bina nai reh sakte Ayaan! Jitni jaldi samaj lo behtar hoga!
Asad: Haan Ayaan! Kehte hai ki isaan ke pyaar ki kadar tabhi hoti hai jab vo humse dur hota hai!
Aur tumhare saath bilkul aisa hi hua hai! Apne dil ko samjo Ayaan!
Ayaan: Par aar muje Humeria se pyaar karna tha toh pehle kyun nai hua?
Zoya: Shahrukh khan ne khud kaha hai har ishq ka ek waqt hota hai vo tumhara waqt nai tha aaj hai toh khush raho!
Asad: Are you serious?
Zoya: Yes!! He is the king of romance!!!
Ayaan: Thanks a lot bhaijaan aur meri pyaari si bhabhijaan!! Mai hi dumb hoon itni si baat nai samaj paaya?
Zoya: Anytime dear!! Waise tum Asad ahmed khan ke bhai ho slow motion ki tumhe aadat honi chahiye!
Asad: Whatever!! Ab jao Humeria ko manao!
Ayaan: Haan byee!!
With that Ayaan jumped out of te window!
Asad side hugged Zoya!
Asad: Hum kisi ko advise de rahe the!
Zoya: Haan! Hum bigdi baat banane mein champion jo ho gaye hai!
Asad: Ab kch nai bigdega!
Zoya: Kabhi nai!
Ayaan went to his room and decided that he would tell Humeira what he feels about her the next day morning.
It was late already!
Ayaan rolled on his bed for about one hour and finally sighed!
Ayaan: Kya haal kar diya hai mera Humeira? Aaj hi batana padega warna neend aane ki possibility zero hai!
Ayaan slowly sneeked into Humeira's bedroom.
There she was sleeping with dry tears in her eyes. This made Ayaan all the more guilty than he already was!
Why could not he resiprocate to her feelings before?
If he had the situation would not have been this difficult!
Her hair was falling on her face blocking his veiw he silently went to her and improved his veiw.
But it was enough to wake up Humeira.
Humeira was on the verge of shouting but Ayaan on the right time kept his hand on her mouth.
Humeira: Ayaan? Tum yahhaan iss waqt?
Ayaan: Muje tumse baat karni hai.
Humeira: Sounds great! Par muje nai karni hai!
Ayaan: Dekho mai ye kehna chahta tha ki..
Humeira: Muje kch nai sunna! Bahut bol chuke aap!
Humeira almost dragged Ayaan out.
While Ayaan was adamant on not moving!
Ayaan: Dekho mai jaanta hoon ki tum muje get out karne ko bekarar ho par sun to lo!
Finally when Humeira was able to drag him till the door, there was a knock!
Humeira & Ayaan both were shocked! Who can be at her room at such a time?
Ayaan: Itni raat ko kaun aaya hai? Mai toh dekh ke aaya tha sab so gaye hai!
Humeira: Ayaan khole bina kaise pata chalega? Muje kya sapna aayega bahar kaun hai?
Ayaan: Tumne koi naya boyfriend paal rakha hai kya?
Humeira: Shut up Ayaan! Will you?
Ab hum kya kare?
Ayaan: Mera brilliant dimag kehta hai darwaza kholna chahiye!
Mai dekhta hoon!
Humeira: Ye kya kar rahe hai aap koi kya sochega ki aap itni raat ko mere kamre mein?
Ayaan: Yahi ki pre-wedding romance chal rha hai!
Humeira: Kya? Chodiye! Humein kch nai sunna! Aap aap cupboard mein chup jaaye!
Humeira: Ayaan aap aisa kyun kar rahe hai?
Ayaan: *nearing her*
Ek shart pe ki jo bhi ho jaane ke baad tum meri baat sunogi!
Humeira: Haan haan thik hai! Par aap pleasee chup jaye!
Ayaan opened the cupboard and sat on the sheves full of Humeira's clothes.
Ayaan: Inn mein tumhari khusboo hai!
Humeira rolled her eyes ands closed the cupboard on his face.
Humeira ran and opened the door.
Nuzzat: Baji? Itna waqt kyun laga?
Humeira: Vo mai so rai thi! Aur muje sunai nai diya!
Nuzzat: Oh sorry!
Humeira: Nai nai koi baat nai! Par tum iss waqt yahaan?
Nuzzat: Vo haan muje bure sapne aa rahe the toh socha aapke paas so jau aaj! Nikhat baji apna college ka kch kaam bhi kar rai hai!
Humeira: KYA? Matlab haan haan kyun nai?
Nuzzat entered the room and went towards the cupboard.
Ayaan was all relaxed inside. He didnt care Nuzzat sees them or not!
Ayaan was getting uncomfortabe when he found a diary!
Humeira: Vo.. Vo ussmein extra pillows aur covers nai hai! Tum please apne kamre se le aaogi?
Nuzzat: Haan! Pehle aap suniye na aaj college mein kya hua!
Nuzzat went on and on and on!
Ayaan opened the diary and on the cover page it was written in a beautiful handwritting "Meri zindagi- Mera pyaar- Mera Ayaan!" With a picture of of their childhood."
He further went on reading skipping years in between reading the oneliners she wrote about each day of her life.
Muje aaj Ayaan mein apna best friend dikha! Humari dosti zindagi bhar ki hai!
Aaj Ayaan ne aur maine hamari tution teacher ko bahut pareshan kiya. Bechari ki haalat dekhne layak thi!
Aaj hamara sports day hai. Ayaan ne participate kiya hai! Aur mai unke liye cheer karungi! Vo hi jeetenge! AYAAN AYAAN AYAAN!!
Aaj meri ek friend ne muje kaha ki mera pyaar Ayaan ke liye dosti se kch zyaada hai! Kya bakwaas kar rai thi! We are best friends forever! Jalkukdi kahiki!"
Ayaan smiled at the statement.
Aaj hamari school mein party thi ussmein mai Ayaan ki date thi! Kisi aur muje pucha aur usse bhi pucha par hum dono ne unhe mana kar diya!
Aacha hi hua mai Ayaan uss chipku ke saath kabhi nai dekh sakti! Kya sab sahi sochte hai? Kya mai Ayaan se pyaar karti hoon?"
Ayaan had tears in his eyes.
Ayaan muje hamesha se Humeira begam kehte hai! Par aaj kuch alag laga! Aacha laga! Muje bharosa ho chuka hai ki mai Ayaan se pyaar karne lagi hoon!
Par kya vo mujse pyaar karte hai?
Unhe jitna waqt lage vo le! Mai intezaar karungi!
Kya muje Ayaan ko sab bata dena chahiye! Aisa lagta toh nai ki voh mujse pyaar karte hai? Par pata nai? Aaj ammi mere nikah ko baat bhi kar rai thi! Ayaan jaldi karo kahin der na ho jaye!
Aaj meri aur Ayaan ki sagai ho gai! Issse ye toh saabit hota haina ki vo bhi mujse pyaar karte hai? Vo pehle jaise nai rahe? Kya ye meri vajah se hai? Mai kya karu?
Mera pehla pyaar adhura reh gaya! Kabhi nai sochatha ki aisa hoga! Ayaan mujse pyaar nai karte nahi unhone kabhi kiya tha!
Mai tut chuki hoon!
Ab se iss diary mein mai kch nai likhungi!
I am sorry diary!
I will miss you!"
Ayaan was in the verge of crying when suddenly Humeira opened the door!
Ayaan quickly kept the diary behind her dresses and hesitated to talk to Humeira. He was just too guilty. No wonder Humeira didnt want to talk to him.
Ayaan: Good night Humeira!
With that Ayaan left leaving a confused Humeira behind.
Humeira: Kch kehna hi nai tha toh aaye hi kyun the?
Nuzzat came and they both went to sleep.
Ayaan was in his room tears flowing from his eyes. Even Humeira had taken a long time to realize her feelings for him but he had really crossed the time limit!
Ayaan quickly dialed Asad and told him everything!
Zoya was listening too as it was on speaker.
Zoya: All i can say is Ayaan tumne bahut raita phela diya hai!
Zoya: Aur nai toh kya vo ladki hamesha se tumse pyaar karti hai aur tumne usse dhoka diya hai indirectly hi sahi par dhoka dhoka hota hai!
Ayaan: Mai janta hoon aur mai kch bhi karne ko tyaar hoon vo sab padhne ke baad meri usse kch kehne ki himmat hi nai rahi! Mai uske pyaar ke layak hi nai hoon!
Zoya: Sahi kaha nai ho tum! Par uski badnasebi vo tumse pyaar karti hai! Usse manao! Kch romantic karo! Make her feel special!
Ayaan: Voh mera chehra tak nai dekhna chahti!
Zoya: Toh mat dekhao! Jab sab manage ho jaye tab dikhao! Aur apne bhaijaan ki iss mamle mein madat lene ki sochna bhi mat!
Ayaan: Par kya?
Zoya: Woh tum socho puri raat padi hai! Good night!
Ayaan: Good night!
Zoya kept the phone!
Asad: Uss bechare ko help hi toh chahiye thi!
Zoya: Vo bechara nai hai! Aur aap pe iss haad tak dependent hai ki apni fiance ko kaise manau ke liye bhi aapko call karta hai! Thoda bada hone do usse! All i can say is Best of luck Humeira!
Zoya left Asad's room telling him not to disturb Ayaan!
NEXT DAY EVENING
Ayaan was nowhere to be seen in in the house the whole day.
Everyone assumed he was out!
But Humeira's eyes were in constant search of Ayaan!
Humeira was passing by the terrace when she heard a loud cry from the terrace.
She could recognize this voice anywhere anytime.
It was Ayaan!
Humeira ran up the terrace and found him a cut on his finger.
She quickly took his finger in her mouth and he stared at her.
Humeira: Zyaada dard nai ho rha na? Abhi thik ho gaye ga! Fikar mat kijiye!
Humeira was so tense just for a little cut. Ayaan could see his old Humeira back. She loved him! Yes! After everything she loved him!
Humeira did the first aid for him.
Finally after she took a sigh of relief she saw the terrace full of their pictures from their childhood till now! The times they spent together everything! It was beautiful! Then she looked at a messy Ayaan with decoration ontop pf his head.
Humeira was touched!
Humeira: Kyun ye sab?
Ayaan: Kyunki mai tumse pyaar karta hoon!
Humeira turned towards the wall.
Humeira: Jhoothi ummede mat dijiye Ayaan mai apne aap ko sambhal chuki hoon! Aur aap hi ne kaha tha ki aap mujse pyaar nai karte!
Ayaan: Tum toh jaanti ho na mai budhhu hoon! Samajne mein muje thoda zyaada time lagta hai! Kehte hai na ek insaan ki value apni zindagi mein kya tab hi pata chalta hai jab vo aapke saath na ho!
Mere saath vahi hua hai!
Humeira: Aisa kaise ho sakta hai?
Humeira turned towards Ayaan crying.
Ayaan: Tumhe andaza nai hai ki jab tumne muje nai pehchana muje kaisa laga? Mai tut gaya! Kabhi nai socha tha ki aisa din bhi aayega! Jab tumne mere aalawa kisi aur ko apne shohar ke roop mein dekha mai jaal ke rakh ho gaya! Itna gussa aaya ki sab tod diya! Jab vo tumhara haath pakadta muje usse zinda gaad dene ka man karta! Par maine nai kiya kyunki sawaal tumhara tha! Mere pyaar ka! Tab mere liye mere pyaar se zyaada tum matter karti thi! Par kya ab sab thik nai ho sakta?
Mai jaanta hoon ki tum bevakoofo ki taraf aaj bhi mujse hi pyaar karti ho aur mai tumse! Itna kaffi hai Humeira!
Muje aur saaza mat do!
Humeira hugged him tightly.
Humeira: Maine aapko maaf kiya Ayaan! Maine aapko maaf kiya!
Humeira: Haan! Dil se! Par promise kijiye aap kabhi aisa dubara nai karenge! Ab ki baar aisa kch hua toh mai mar..
Ayaan kept his hand on her mouth.
Ayaan: Aisa kch nai hone wala samji? Ye hamari nayi shuruvaat hai aisi baatein mat karo! Waise mai khud tyaar hone jaane wala tha par usse pee tum aa gai!
Humeira: Koi baat nai! Aap bajut cute lag rhe hai!
With that they hugged each other more tightly!
Suddenly the terrace door opened and there stood a shocked Nikhat!
Nikhat: *turned backwards*
I am so so so sorry!
Waise love birds ko saath dekhke aacha laga!
Mai sirf itna batane aayi thi ki dinner tyaar hai!
Ayaan: Please sabko keh dena na ki mai aur Humeira dinner ke liye bahar jayenge!
Nikhat: Jo hukum!
Ayaan: Ek aur kaam hai Asad bhaijaan aur Zoya ko hum personally batayenge phir dinner pe jaayene!
Tumhe pata hai agar vo dono nai hote toh mai kabhi nai samaj pata ki mai kya chahta hoon!
Un dono ne hi muje apne pyaar ka ehsaas dilaya!
Humeira: Shukar hai khuda ka! Warna mai budhi ho jati par aap abhi tak aap soch hi rahe hote!
Both laughed together just like before.
Ayaan called Asad!
Ayaan: Bhaijaan mai 15 min mein aa raha hoon bhabhi ko bula lo! Bye!
Asad: Ayaan? Pagal ladka!
Humeira: Zoya baji ko tum acche se jante ho?
Ayaan: Haan Humeira! Bahut pyaari hai! Haan par jab maine usse kaha ki maine tumhara dil tod kiya aur help mangi toh " apne dil ki suno" kehke phone bhi kaat diya!
Humeira: Accha hi kiya! Warna aaj ka din itna khubsoorat na hota!
They reached and Ayaan jumpend in from the window. He then gave hand to Humeira who was uncomfortable doing it! Finally Ayaan picked her up and bought in!
Humeira: Aise aana zaroori hai kya Ayaan?
Zoya: Ji haan! Ye unki parampara hai! Issiliye toh jab inhone kaha ko aa raha hoon hum yahaan intezaar kar rahe the naaki mair door pe!
Asad: Jab inti pyaari ladki saath ho tab toh dawaze ka isstamaal kar liya karo!
Ayaan: Dekhte hai!
Zoya: Lagta sab thik ho gaya!
Ayaan: Kuch zyaada hi thik ho gaya! I love you Zoya! Agar tum phone nai kaat ti toh muje itne aache ideas ate hi nai! Finally muje mera pyaar mil gaya?
Zoya: Kya Humeira thoda aur pareshan karna tha na!
Humeira: Ab nai hota baaji!
Zoya hugs Humeira.
Asad hugs Ayaan.
Ayaan: Thanks bhaijaaan!
Zoya: Kya hum dono aap dono bhaiyon ke sensual hug ko join kar sakte hai?
Asad and Ayaan both gave hands to their fiances and they had a group hug
Love always finds its way sometimes before sometimes after! Just wait and watch someday magic will happen!
