Payal wondered where Bharti's mobile was,as it was ringing repeatedly.Eventually,she found Bharti's mobile lying down beneath a pile of papers,which must have fallen while Bharti was asleep.
Mahi:Bharti,it's me Mahi..Where are you yaar?
Payal:Mahi hi,it's Payal..Long story cut short,Bharti's still sleeping..Anything important?
Mahi:WHAT??Oh God,yeh ladki mujhe marwaayegi!!Payal,i'm supposed to go for a presentation and seminar with her today..
Mahi:In an hour's time!!
Payal:Oh crap!!Thank God you called..I'll make sure she's there in an hour's time,hhmm??KK,gonna wake her up,talk to you later..Bye!!(hung up)
Mahi:(hung up and called Sonu)Sonu,you wouldn't believe it but Payal bought it..(told Sonali everything)
Sonali:Tu bhi na Mahi..So what's the plan?
Mahi:Tu MU pohanch,main tumhe pohanch kar bata thi hoon..
Sonali:Just imagine if Payal were to figure out that you weren't in MU in the first place..(Mahi got amused)
Mahi:Waise yeh sab kuch na tumhaari dosti ki asar hai aur kuch nahin..
Sonali:Haan haan,meri dosti ko hi badnaam karna!!Kk,i'm driving..Will talk to you in MU!!
Mahi:Byezz..(hung up)Bharti ko aaj kuch khaas kaam bhi nahin hai,iss liye woh mere saath zaroor aayegi..Aur Jiya Armaanko bhi lekar aayegi..I hope she's in MU by now!!
Raj was cozily sleeping on the sofa while Jiya had made some breakfast for Nidhi and was feeding her.Upon hearing her cry,Jiya quickly went to get the bottle of milk,waking Raj up.He rubbed his eyes and saw that Jiya had placed Nidhi near him,provoking her to wake him up.
Raj:Jiya,tumhe jalan ho rahi hain kya?
Jiya:Kis baat se?
Raj:Mere neend se aur kisse?
Jiya:Oh helloo...Main jaa rahi hoon,alright?Dus bajne waale hain aur tum ho ke abhi tak so rahi ho..
Raj:Kuch khaaya ke nahin?
Jiya:Haan haan kyun nahin..Ek luxurious breakfast tayyaar jo kiya hain tumne jo main khaaongi..
Raj:(smiled at Jiya's early morning sarcasm)Really??
Jiya:Dahi mila tha tumhaare fridge se,woh bhi bohat hai..(shook her head)Gosh,i'm worried about Nidhi!!
Raj:Heyy,Nidhi is in safe hands,alright??I take great care of her and so does...
Jiya:Anywayzz,maine khaa liya hain..Tum uth jaao aur jaldi MU chalo..And one more thing!!
Raj:Jee kahiye,Ms Jiya Mishra..
Jiya:You'll talk to Armaan,right?
Jiya:Raj,i'm so gonna kill you now..Remember last night!!We talked about Armaan,figuring out what's cooking between him and Shreya,hhmm?
Raj:(sounded irritated)Yes Jiya,i remember..
Jiya:Now get up from that cozy sofa of your's...(left from there)
Raj:Crap!!(looked at Nidhi)Now i've got to talk to Armaan about this..I gave Jiya the idea and now she wants me to implement it..Brilliant!!
Payal rushed to Bharti's room after sending Naina off in her school van,only to see Bharti still sleeping like a rock.
Payal:I don't believe this!!(went to Bharti's washroom and brought a small bucket filled with water to half its volume,pouring it on Bharti)Hahh!!(finally saw Bharti having sat upright instantly opening her eyes,glaring at Payal)
Bharti:What the hell,Payal!!Ouchh..(felt her head throbbing with pain)
Payal:How long have i been calling you yaar?Finally this did the trick..Get up cuz Mahi called for you're supposed to go for a presentation and seminar with her...in 30 minutes!!(Payal turned to go)
Bharti:My head is spinning,yaar..Just don't feel like going to MU today!!(Payal stopped and turned around,smiling subtly)What..are you exactly smiling for??
Payal:You don't want to go to MU because of last night,right?
Bharti:What...What about last night??(chucked her blanket aside)
Payal:Bharti,Armaan told me whatever that happened last night;how he tried to clear the misunderstanding but you were simply unapologetic and the journey via the lorry as well as Armaan's bike ride to your bedroom..
Bharti:WHAT???(looked at her clothes and stared at Payal in disbelief)WHAT???He...he sent me back home??
Payal:(nodded in agreement)Surprisingly,he knew your bedroom without me having to direct it to him..He even asked me to change your clothes as you might fall ill..Why don't you forgive him,Bharti?It's your farewell week,for God's sake yaar!!Do you want things to be like this between you two forever?
Bharti:Payal,just shut up ok?(got up from her bed and opened her wardrobe to choose her office wear)
Payal:Why are you venting your frustration on me for?
Bharti:Just leave me alone alright??(took a dress and shut her wardrobe closed)
Payal:Do you know what your problem is??(held Bharti by her elbow and made her turn around)He didn't care when you were apologizing profusely,hence now when he's sincerely asking for forgiveness,you're pretending not to care when the truth is somethg else...
Bharti:Oh wow Payal..You're some psychic,trying to read my mind or something?No matter what you say,i'll not forgive him!!
Payal:Something's changed,Bharti...You're angry with Armaan for some other reason instead of this..Are you hiding something,Bharti?
Bharti:Are you out of your mind?Why would i hide anything??(heard the telephone ring and she rushed inside the washroom while Payal attended the phone call)
Mahi:Payal,has Bharti left??
Payal:Yeah Mahi,she's left like half an hour ago..Hasn't she reached??
Mahi:Ohh i'm out of MU at the moment..Thanks!!(Payal hung up,heaving a deep sigh of relief and quickly made some breakfast for Bharti)Aisi kya baat hai jo Bharti mujhse chupaa rahi hai?
~1 Hour Later:Trends~
Shreya:Good morning Sir..You called for me?
Mayank:Yeahh come in,i've just heard from the Khurana's,who had seen your articles in the Fashion & Media section of our magazine..I'll need you to lock in additional hours from next month onwards as a temporary editorial assistant,accompanied by my supervision will be requiring you to report to him or her,who will work with the Khurana's,for our exclusive additional features,starting from next month..
Shreya:Sure Sir,i'd lurve to..
Mayank:Good,i always want this high spirit to be alive in you at all times..You can go!!
Mayank:One minute Shreya..A personal question..
Mayank:I've been hearing some rumours..About you and Armaan..Are they in any way true??
Mayank:Look,you don't have to answer if you feel uncomfortable..I basically hate the spread of rumours,be it true or false, so whatever it is,put an end to it asap...Understood?
Shreya:Yes Sir..(murmured to herself)Aur mujhe yeh laga tha ki Mayank sir thoda jovial banne ki koshish kar rahe the..
Mayank:What are you waiting for??Get back to work!!
Shreya:Yes Sir!!(left from there)
Mayank:Bata nahin ki Bharti aaj milegi yaa bhi nahin..Aaj khulke baat karna hoga Bharti se..(tried dialling Bharti's number but Payal picked it up and told him that Bharti forgot to bring her mobile with her to MU)Thanks Payal!!(hung up and wondered if he ought to go to MU right away but thought about going some time later since he had to go for an important conference)
Mahi was thrilled as she had coaxed Bharti into accompanying her to Nirvana Hall for the conference which was initially arranged in a way that only Sonali needed to join Mahi but Sonali decided to catch up with Mahi later on,as part of the plan discussed by Jiya,herself and Mahi last evening.
Meanwhile,Armaan was quite busy with his photo-shoot when Jiya just barged in and asked him to join her to Nirvana Hall to assist Mahi and Sonali.
Armaan:Jiya,can't you see that i'm busy developing these photographs??
Jiya:Uff Armaan,you can handle these later or better,ask Deepak to develop the stills for ya...Please yaar,join me!!
Armaan:Uff!!Jiya,i'm really sorry i can't..
Jiya:Of course you can Armaan!!!
Armaan:Raj kahaa hai??Tum uske saath chali jaao na,please!!
Jiya:Armaann!!Raj yahaa nahin hain and i wonder where he is...Subah toh maine usse kahaa tha jaldi uthne ke liye..Bata nahin ki uthaa ki nahin;waise bhi usse toh apne Nidhi se zyaada apna neend pyaara hai and i left his place just like that...
Armaan:You slept at his place last night??
Jiya:Yeahh..so???You make it sound as though i've not slept at his place before...
Armaan:Never mind...(shook his head)
Jiya:Armaan,chalo na..Please!!!!I beg of you...
Armaan:Ok fine!!Let me just direct Deepak first...(Jiya dragged him to Deepak and once Armaan had instructed him,Jiya brought him with her promptly)Yeh ladki bhi na!!!
Bharti was mingling with the fashion consultants whom Mahi had introduced her to.Just then Bharti realized that she had forgotten her mobile and left it at home in a rush to get away from Payal's "illogical theory" which had driven her mad this morning.Mahi excused herself to get some refreshments for herself and Bharti.Eventually,Bharti was standing by herself as the consultant had to rush for an important meeting elsewhere.
Mahi:(on her mobile)Heyy,kahaa ho tum??
Jiya:On my way...(whispered)Armaan's with me..Will meet you there directly!!
Mahi:(almost shrieked)Awesome!!Chal,bye bye!!(hung up and smiled widely,thanking God from within)
Just as she got the refreshments in her hand,she turned around and paused.She was literally stunned to see whom Bharti was talking to.She widened her eyes and saw none other than the last person she would want to meet in any day of her life--Mayank Sharma!!
"Iss sadoo ko toh main..Bata nahin kahaa se tapak padhtha hai...Jahaa kahin bhi jaao,bas peeche hi aa jaata hai kahin se...Arrgghh!!Damn it...Agar yeh iss tarha Bharti se baat karta rahega,toh plan toh pakka choppat ho jaayegi...Kuch toh sochna padega,filhaal main Bharti ke taraf chalti hoon..Damn it!!Damn it!!"
Mayank was surprised to see Mahi but concealed his surprise and allowed Bharti to tell her.
Bharti:Heyy Mahi,guess who i had bumped into??
Mahi:Oh really??Indeed,what a coincidence..Or is it really??
Mahi:Uffo Bharti..(looked at Mayank as she spoke sarcastically)Mayank aur yahaa,woh bhi ittefaq se??Mujhe toh aisa nahin lagta..In fact,mujhe toh yeh lag raha hai jaise woh tumhe khud dekhne aaya hain..Zaroor isne Men's Universe se bataa karliya hoga..Warna yeh kambakht ittefaq baar baar aise kaise ho jaata hai..Kyun Mayank??(Mayank was slightly annoyed at Mahi's sarcasm)
Mayank:Actually Bharti..(placed his arm around Bharti's shoulder,which instantly irked Mahi)Maine MU se bataa kar liya tha aur Payal se bhi baat hua tha kyunki main tumhaari mobile try kar rahaa tha kyunki hum dono milne waale the na??
Mahi:Ohhh i see...Anyways,Bharti,here's your refreshment..(saw Sonali waving to her)I'll...be right back,hhmm??(Bharti nodded and Mahi went to talk to Sonali)Yaar,kahaa reh gayi thi??
Sonali:I just came..Sorry yaar,stupid emergency popped up..Waise,how's the progress??
Mahi:No progress at all..In fact,if there's a word as degress,so be it!!Of all people,Mayank had to come here..!!
Mahi:Aur woh apna haqq jhataana shuru kar diya hai Bharti ke upar..Seriously he's friggin' annoying!!
Sonali:Tumhe itni problem kyun ho rahi hai,Mahi??Ahhh,i see...Your prospective groom's flirting with Bharti,huh??
Mahi:(got confused as she shook her head and looked at her)Wh..What?
Sonali:Prospective groom from Shaadi Plus...Hhmm??
Mahi:Just shut up,alright??Listen,Jiya Armaan ke saath aa rahi hogi...Aur agar Armaan ne Mayank ko dekh bhi liya,toh musibat aur badh sakti hain..
Sonali:Right!!Aur hum toh yahaa inn dono ke faasle mithaane ki koshish kar rahe hain..
Sonali:Ohh wait i've got an idea but only you can do it and i wonder if you would...
Mahi:Why are you hesitating??What's the BIG idea??
Sonali:Woh...Tumhe Mayank ko kisi bhi tarha yahaa se hathaana hogi..
Mahi:Main??Tu paagal ho gayi hain kya??
Sonali:Waise bhi tum dono ki kaafi history reh chuki hain na??(got amused to see Mahi annoyed)
Mahi:Sonu,i'm so gonna strangle you!!!
Sonali:Now's definitely not the time as Jiya and Armaan will be here any moment!!
Mahi:Crap!!But what do i say??
Sonali:Ok,you can try finding out his real intention behind proposing to Bharti,since we do want to figure it out anyways...
Mahi:Right!!!(murmured to herself)And i also need to find out about Riteish and Sid as well...
Mahi:Nothing...Don't worry;i'll get that done!!Anyways,i'll bring him out but you update me on any progress!!K??
Sonali:Agreed!!!Ab tum jaldi jaao!!!
Mahi:Haan haan,jaa rahi hoon...(interrupted Bharti and Mayank's conversation)Oops,sorry if i was disturbing in any way...
Mayank:Surely,you were...(Bharti hit Mayank's elbow)..What??She was interrupting us...
Mahi:Actually Bharti,Sonu's waiting for you...She needed you urgently!!!
Bharti:Excuse me Mayank...
Mayank:Sure..(looked suspiciously at Mahi)Why did you send her away??
Mahi:Now,what do you mean by that??
Mayank:You've got something to talk to me about??
Mahi:Well,i hate to admit it but yes,i do!!2 matters,which i can't exactly speak about here..
Mahi:Because apparently i prefer a quieter place so let's go out,hhmm??
Mayank:Are you asking me out??
Mahi:Whoa..Whoa...!!Don't get too excited,alright??
Mayank:I'm not excited in any way,get it??
Mahi:Whatever...I'm just saying that we could talk somewhere else which is much quieter..
Mayank:Ok fine,let me just inform Bharti..
Mahi:No,you don't have to..
Mahi:Look,mere paas zyaada waqt nahin hai tum par barbaad karne ki,so if you please don't mind...
Mayank:Par aisi kya..
Mahi:God,tum aise nahin maanoge...(Mahi held his wrist and brought him out while Sonali smiled winsomely at Mahi while conversing with Bharti)
Sonali:Oh wow..hi Jiya!!
Jiya:Hii Sonu,tu yahaa??(winked subtly at Sonali)
Sonali:Yeahh,part of my work..In fact,Bharti's assisting me in it!!You alone??
Jiya:I was supposed to come with Raj but apparently i got a quick replacement indeed..In the form of Armaan,of course!!(both of them noticed Bharti looking away,pretending to be disinterested)Where's Mahi by the way??
Bharti:She was here just now...And by the way,where is Mayu??(looked around for him while Jiya's confused and Sonali whispered to Jiya that Mayank was here a few seconds back before Bharti turned back to face them)
Jiya:Arre Armaan,aao na...(stood next to Jiya in a way that he was standing before Bharti who was still annoyed with him)Waise Sonu,humaare consultant hai kahaa??
Sonali:She had an urgent conference to attend to,but no worries since she had passed the itinery cum details with me...I'll be here throughout..(Jiya interrupted her)
Jiya:How could you have forgotten Sonali??
Jiya:You forgot about the meeting with Mr Farhan??
Sonali:Oh crap...Both of us,right??Damn!!Ok,Bharti and Armaan,listen up...Jiya and I will go and meet Mr Farhan while you two handle the details and get started right away,ok??
Bharti:Arre par Sonuuu....
Jiya:Armaan,remember the trip??I've just to win his confidence somehow and make things work for both of us...I'll be back soon na??(whispered in his ear)And you're welcome by the way...
Jiya:You'll figure it out on your own,trust me!!!(winked at him before she left with Sonali)
Armaan:Arre!!!(turned back to face Bharti who was looking elsewhere when she realized that Armaan was watching her)Bharti..(Bharti was about to walk away but she got stopped by the fashion consultant she had mingled with earlier on)
Mayank:Oh hello...(gestured to Mahi to let go of his hand which she did instantly)
Mayank:Where are we going??
Mahi:Will you shut your mouth for some moments,please??
Mahi:Chalo...(crossed the road to the other side and Mayank simply wondered what the heavens was running in Mahi's head at the moment)
Mayank:Wait...What's going on??
Mahi:We're going to have lunch together,hhmm??
Mayank:Lunch aur woh bhi tumhaare saath??
Mahi:Kyun??Koi problem hai??
Mayank:I've...I've already had my lunch..
Mayank:I had..erm salad and i'm pretty much full!!
Mahi:How can you be full with one salad??I mean..Come on!!
Mayank:What is so unbelievable about what just went inside my tummy??
Mahi:Look,God has made so much of diverse foods available for us and you're just sticking to one stupid salad??
Mayank:Look,you can eat for all you want and i'm not stopping you...Why are you hell bent on making me eat??
Mahi:What??(shook her head)Anywayzz,just follow me,alright??(Mayank simply shook his head and followed her inside Lake View Cafe)
Bharti was looking at the itinery all by herself before she realized that Armaan was just standing there,making her feel all so uncomfortable all over again.She recalled how Payal had almost ruined her morning elaborating on whatever that happened last night and how Armaan had laid her on her bed,all drenched.On one hand,Bharti is feeling awful for not being in her conscious state and on the other hand,her anger just seemed to be elevated,much to Armaan's confusion as to the hidden reason behind Bharti's anger which somewhat prolonged to a greater extent than how it has always been.
Armaan realized that it is simply up to no good if he was to stand before Bharti without even discussing about the itinery.He was about to move forward and talk to Bharti but she stopped him.
Bharti:Don't even open your mouth to say anything..I want to hear nothing from you!!
Armaan:Bharti,what the hell are you doing??(Bharti pretended not to listen to him and continued reading and he was about to make her face him but just then the consultant appeared)
Veera:Hii,i'm so sorry i had to leave just now...It's been really hectic here starting from morning itself...Anywayzz,you guys are from Men's Universe,right??(Bharti and Armaan nodded)Heard a lot about your organization..Well i think i was supposed to meet Mahi and Jiya..
Armaan:Actually,they had to leave urgently elsewhere so we are just helping them out..This is Bharti and me myself,Armaan Sinha...
Veera:Armaan Sinha,photographer right??
Armaan:Ye..yeahh!!(looked surprisingly at Bharti who was equally surprised)But how did you figure??
Veera:Well,Jiya and Mahi had shown me some of your work and i have personally seen you work as well,so yeahh...
Armaan:Thanks!!Well,do you mind telling me about the International Fashion Week models whom we are meeting next week??But of course,before that..What are we supposed to do today??
Veera:Well,according to the itinery,today we are simply preparing for next week since there's a lot of work left to be done..More of technical stuff,you know...Bharti,you can join me at the backstage whilst Armaan,you can just get mingle with the photographers from the various other magazines who will be joining you as well next week..Waise,how do you know each other??Do you work together??
Armaan:She's an intern at Men's Universe..And we are frie(looked at Bharti and paused)
Bharti:We are colleagues..That's all!!
Veera:I know i shouldn't say but from an angle,you two would make a real sweet couple..(Armaan gazed at Bharti who was flabbergasted and glared at Armaan and instantly looked to Veera to reply)
Bharti:Actually we're not and FYI,he's very much in love with someone..
Veera:Ohh i'm terribly sorry...(Armaan was about to say something but paused)Excuse me...Come with me Bharti!!
Armaan:What the..What??Why did she even say that??What's going on with her??Arrgghh!!!
~Lake View Cafe~
Mayank was stunned to see Mahi having ordered at least five to six plates of various dishes,almost covering the possible spaces on the table where both of them were seated.
Mahi:What are you looking at??
Mayank:You're going to eat all of these??
Mahi:Apparently since you've already eaten your lunch,pretty much satiated by a stupid salad..
Mayank:And i bet you've never had salads in your entire life??
Mahi:I would never touch salads,alright??But if you want,i can order another salad for you..
Mayank:No thank you,i'm pretty much full by the foods i'm seeing on this table..
Mahi:You're not a vegan,are you??
Mahi:Crap!!Or else i would have gotten another nickname for you besides khadoos or sadoo..(Mayank widened his eyes in shock)Why are you so shocked??Khayr,you should be glad that i do not get the chance to call ghas-pus..
Mayank:Can we get to what you wanted to talk about??
Mahi:Of course...Tell me something..Of all people,i mean girls...Why Bharti??
Mahi:Ok,let me make it clearer...Why Bharti??Why did you propose to her??
Mayank:What is the matter with you?Whether i propose to Bharti or not,that's pretty much none of your business so why do you even bother??
Mahi:Whoa,don't even get this thought in your head that i'm intervening in your personal affairs,which i really have no interest in at all...If i'm asking,i'm asking for a god damn good reason,alright??So just spill it!!
Mayank:(watched her eyes intently)Why do you care so much??Does it bother you that i proposed to Bharti??
Mahi:Look,i want to know what's the real intention behind you proposing to her...For i very well know that you're not in love with Bharti at all and neither is she in love with you...
Mayank:Oh really???What makes you think so Mahi??Are you a mind reader or something??
Mahi:I know that you're not in love with Bharti..(felt a lil uncomfortable when Mayank was smiling subtly at her)I know that you're still in love with Bharti's closest friend,Radhika..(Mayank's smile faded)You can't deny that,and that's how i know that you're not in love with Bharti!!So,without any further delay,tell me..
Mayank:Why should i even tell you anything??It's not as if you're my friend or anything...
Mahi:I agree that you're neither my friend but i'm not going to let you go without you answering my simple question,alright??You're not my friend and you'll never be but you're...You're coming in between Bharti and...
Mayank:Bharti and...??(Mahi didn't speak any further)
Mahi:Look,i don't care but you've got to break up with Bharti asap!!
Mayank:WHAT??Just shut up,alright??You're no one either to interfere in my life or to even try and dominate me,telling me what to do and what not to do...I can't believe that i'm even listening to you!!(stood up but Mahi stopped him by holding on to his wrist and picked up her mobile)
Mahi:Sonu,main Lake View mein hoon yaar..Just cross the road and you'll see the cafe...Acha theekh hain,jaldi aa jaa...(looked at Mayank and hung up)You're not going anywhere for i'm not done with you!!
Mayank:Ab aur kya baaki reh gaya hai baat karne ki Mahi??
Mahi:Dekho,tumhe kisi bhi tarha...
Mayank:Pehle mujhe yeh bataao ki tum yeh sab kis liye aur kiske liye kar rahe ho???
Mahi:Theekh hai,agar main tumhe yeh bataao ki main yeh sab kiske liye kar rahi hoon,toh kya tum waada karoge ki tum Bharti se break up karoge???Bolo..
Mayank:Pehle mujhe bataao ki kaun hai..
Mahi:Tum usse jaante ho...
Mahi:(licked her fingers and smiled widely)Excuse me...
Mahi:I'll be back!!
Armaan was discussing with other photographers and busy networking with them while Bharti was helping Veera together with the technicians and wherever she was needed.When she was done,Veera and Bharti went to talk to Armaan.Bharti just kept to a side while Veera kept chatting away and after some time,Veera excused herself.
Bharti was about to leave but just then,Armaan held her wrist.Bharti slowly looked at her wrist and looked in front.
Bharti:Mere haath chod do,Armaan...
Armaan:Bharti,aisa kya gussa hain jo tum maaf hi nahin karna chahthe ho??Tum woh puraani Bharti nahin rahi ho,jahaa tum mujhe bohat jald maaf kar dete ho...
Bharti:Nahin hoon main woh Bharti..Aur naahi tum woh Armaan ho jo main jaanti thi..(Armaan was shocked to hear what Bharti just said)Iss liye...(Armaan withdrew his hand)
Armaan:Yeh tum kya keh rahe ho Bharti??
Bharti:Kyun??Kuch galat keh diya maine??(turned to face Armaan)Maana ke pehle tumhe gussa aata tha aur maine bhi tumhe maaf kar deti thi..Lekin iss baar main aisa kuch bhi karungi kyunki tumne meri dosti ko ek second mein thod di thi bina kuch soche...Aur ab toh meri dosti ki koi keemat hi nahin hain tumhaare pyaar ke aage,hain na??
Bharti:Oops,i forgot to congratulate you..Tumhe apna pyaar mubarak ho,Mr Armaan Sinha...Yeh zaroori nahin hai ki tum mujhe kuch bhi bataao kyunki ab toh humaare beech kuch hain bhi nahin..(turned away)
Armaan:Aur kya main tumhe yeh pooch sakta hoon ki uss baat ka kya??Mayank ne tumhe propose kiya tha aur tumne bhi mujhe kuch bhi nahin bataaya...
Bharti:Wow,amazing!!Toh tumhe bhi yehi lagta hai ki mere aur Mayank ke beech..You know what??I don't care...I really don't care!!!(Armaan stopped her once again;he held her wrist firmly and made her turn towards him)
Armaan:What do you not care,Bharti??(looked intently into her eyes)
Bharti:Mujhe kisi ko bhi safaayi dene ki koi zaroorat nahin hain...Jisse main apni dost samajh thi thi woh toh mere baarein mein aisa sochtha hi nahin...Leave me alone!!
Armaan:Bharti,tum yeh kya bole jaa rahe ho??
Bharti:Let me be,Armaan!!!Don't you get it???Just let me be!!!I've never needed anyone in my life neither do i need anyone right now...I'm perfect jus the way i am and i don't need anyone in my life!!!And for your info,i care a heck about you or your love life in any way!!!Get that straight to your head!!!!(Armaan let go of her hand and noticed her eyes getting welled up and seeing that,he turned away for he couldn't let her see his tear forming)
Bharti just stormed away from there,much to Jiya's bewilderment.She was appalled by the entire confrontation between Armaan and Bharti.She had not followed Sonali to Lake View Cafe and as a result,she was troubled by the latest development in her best friend's life.
~Lake View Cafe~
Mayank:Armaan??Woh..Bharti se pyaar??
Mahi:Kyun??Armaan ko kya problem hai??
Mayank:Woh pyaar nahin,jagad tha hai Bharti se aur kuch nahin...
Mahi:Tumhe kaise pata??Tum koi antaryaami ho??
Mayank:Mahi,main iske liye manzoori bilkul bhi nahin doonga...
Mahi:Koi tumhaari manzoori ke liye intezaar nahin kar raha hain...Just break up with Bharti asap and things will be smooth for you...Warna...
Mahi:Warna anjaam bohat bura ho sakta hai tumhaare liye aur Trends ke liye bhi...Soch lo!!!
Mayank:Tum samajh the kya ho apne aap ko,hhmm??Tum mujhe blackmail karoge aur main chup chaap sunoonga??Mujhe tumhaari bakwaas baatein sunne ki koi shauk nahin hain,so just get lost,alright??(was about to leave but Mahi held his wrist and pulled him towards her)
Mahi:Dekho,agar tumne koi bhi gadh badh ki toh..
Mahi and Mayank were both stunned to see Bharti right there at that moment.Mahi let go of Mayank and stepped back and so did Mayank;both of them looked away from each other.
Bharti:Mahi,kya hua??Mayank ne kuch kaha hai kya??
Mahi:(calmed herself as she realized that Bharti had heard nothing and turned to look at Bharti)Tum khud Mayank se kyun nahin pooch leti ho??
Bharti:(turned to Mayank)Mayank,abtumne kya kahaa hai Mahi se??Tum hamesha aise kyun karte ho??Tumne mujhse vaada kiya tha ke nahin ki tum Mahi se pyaar se baat karoge??(Mahi smirked at Mayank who got really pissed off)
Mayank:Ab main kya boloo??(gave Mahi a cold stare)
Mahi:Bharti,maine sirf yeh poocha tha Mayank se ki usne tumhe kyun propose kiya tha??Jab ki woh...
Mahi:Itni simple si question thi Bharti...Aur mujhe iss baat se gussa hai ki Mayank ne mujhe..
Bharti:Mayank,seriously what is going on??
Mayank:Bharti woh...(looked at Mahi and recalled her blackmailing him about him and Trends and eventually saw her looking at him)Woh Mahi..main..pyaar...(Mahi was equally confused at what Mayank was blabbering)Bharti actually baat...
Bharti:Wait...Tum,Mahi aur pyaar??Tum Mahi se pyaar karte ho??Tum dono ek doosre se pyaar karte ho???(Mayank and Mahi stared at each other in disbelief and looked away instantly)Toh tumne mujhe propose kyun kiya tha Mayank???
Mayank was left,thinking of how to react while Mahi was frozen with shock!!
