Jiya:Chal bata baat kya hai?
Raj:Tu phir se shuru ho gayi?
Raj:Armaan aur Bharti par give up karke ab seedha Pushpak aur Sonali par chance maar rahi ho??
Jiya:Idiot!!Pushpak,forget that i even asked you anything..Bye!!(left from there)
Pushpak:Raj,tumhe aisa kehna nahin chaahiye tha yaar...
Raj:Dude,just chillax..Yeh toh humaare beech aksar hota hain..Tension matt lo!!
Pushpak:Acha,theekh hain..Mujhe ek personal favour chaahiye tha tumse..
Raj:Mujhse??Look dude,i can't guarantee you anything here unless it is something within my capabilities..
Pushpak:Can you...can you...
Raj:Are you intending to doubt my potential??Cut the crap and come to the point,dude...
Pushpak:Can you find out where Sonali's staying??
Raj:WHAT??(Pushpak flapped his palms up and down repeptitvely)What do you mean?Aren't you two living together??(Pushpak kept mum)Dude,how long has this been going on??What happened between you two?
Raj:Actually nahin,i want the truth!!(Pushpak told him what happened and how Sonali's not even talking to him now)So you guyzz are on a break huh??I don't believe this crap!!You mean to say it's Sonali's fault,huh??
Pushpak:Yaar,maine aisa kab kaha??
Raj:Ok,toh yeh Aunty ka fault hain?
Pushpak:Heyy,tum Maa ko beech mein kyun laa rahe ho?
Raj:(got frustrated)Oh God,Pushpak!!It is either Sonali's or your mum's fault cuz apparently you were standing in the middle,in a neutral position,just doing nothing about it at all..Sonu chose the easiest way out and you let her do so and FYI,i'm not your private investigator,get it?
Pushpak:That's it Raj..I can hire a PI,can't i??
Raj:Are you nutzz or something??
Pushpak:Then what do you propose?
Raj:I'm not proposing anything...I can't believe that things change after you guyzz went on with the live-in status...Marriage is a big No-No for you guyzz..
Pushpak:Raj,just forget that i even asked...(left,disappointed)
Raj:Damn it!!(shook his head)What the hell...I should have helped him!!Pushpak,you caught me in the wrong mood yaar...All i'm thinking about right now is the effect of Mahi's and Mayank's break-up on Niharika..Gosh,i'm still thinking about her!!(recalled about how Khushi had screamed on top of her lungs,confessing his love for Niharika on his behalf)I care about her,damnnn!!!
Niharika:Mayank,jaldi karo na...(Mahi noticed a beautiful portrait of two lovers at sunset,on the wall)Mahi,chale??(Mahi didn't respond and Niharika went to her)Mahi??(tapped on her shoulders)
Niharika:Kya hua??Tum yeh painting dekh kar aise..Tum itni khoyi khoyi si kyun ho?
Mahi:Kisi ki yaad aa gayi thi..Yeh painting??
Niharika:Actually,yeh painting ermm..(paused to think)Yeh Riteish ka dost..Mujhe naam toh yaad nahin hain par Riteish ke sagaayi ke waqt,usne yeh painting humaare ghar par bheja tha..Par koi naam nahin likha tha,sirf ek annonymous chitthi tha..Jab Riteish aur Avni ko congratulate karne gayi thi,tab mujhe Riteish ne usse introduce kiya tha...Mayannkkk!!!
Mayank:Sorry...Woh kuch zaroori documents compile kar raha tha..
Niharika:Kitni baar kahaa hain maine tumse ki office ka kaam mere saamne matt laaya karo..
Mayank:Ab chale??Chale Mahi??
Niharika:Waise Mayank,tumhe yaad hain ki yeh painting humein kisne gift kiya tha??Woh Riteish ke engagement par bhi mila tha,Riteish ka dost...
Mayank:Woh...V...Ve..Vedant..Vedant Raiz,kuch aisa naam hain shayad..(Mahi was totally shocked)
Niharika:Mahi..Heyy..(Mahi breathed deeply,calming herself from within)Tum theekh ho??
Mahi:Yeahh,bohat dher ho gayi hain na...Chale??(Niharika nodded and she locked her home before heading off in Mayank's car;Mayank dropped her off at the saloon after which he drove to MU)
Mayank:(thought to himself)Bata nahin ki uss painting mein aisa kya khaasiyat thi jo Mahi disturbed ho gayi thi aur tab jab maine Vedant Raiz ka naam liya tha..Par main kyun yeh sab soch raha hoon??
Mahi:(pondered)Niharika ki perception kuch zyaada hi sahi hain..Maine aaj tak apne ateet ko nahin bhulaa paayi hoon toh Mayank kaise Radhika ko bhoolega??Aaj phir se meri ateet mere aas paas bhadak rahi hain..Avni ki engagement party par aur mall mein bhi maine Ved ko hi dekha tha...Woh iss shehar mein hi hain!!
Raj:Sorry yaar Pushpak...I was quite in a different mood..
Raj:Tum Sonali se pyaar karte ho?
Pushpak:Woh kehte hain na,zindagi ki mushkilein pyaar ke sang aasaan hone lagte hain??
Raj:Aur yeh kis idiot ne kahaa hain??Zyaada sa zyaada complications badh jaata hain pyaar ke waje se..
Pushpak:Tum yeh sab iss liye keh rahe ho kyunki tumne abhi tak sacha pyaar nahin kiya hain..
Raj:Acha??Agar tum itna hi chahthe ho Sonu ko,toh phir usse jaane kyun diya??
Pushpak:Tumne doosra kahaavat nahin suna hain?
Pushpak:Letting go of your love and if your love is true,she'll return,etc,etc...
Raj:Ahhh...Doosra Armaan banne ki koshish kar rahe ho?
Pushpak:Armaan?Kya matlab hain tumhaara?
Raj:Ermm,woh..Kab tak break lena ka iraada hain,huh?
Pushpak:Mujhse kyun pooch rahe ho??Jaakar ussi se poocho na..
Raj:Kyun?Tumne hi toh jaane diya tha na...Arre,agar pyaar kiya hain,toh mard bann!!Uske dil waapas jeeto..Apne pyaar ke liye lado!!!Lekin nahin...Tum toh mummly ka laadla ho na..Jo unki baat kabhi nahin thaaloge,chahhe sahi ho ya buri aur inn sab mein bhugh thega kaun??Mere dost,Sonu,huh???Kitna kamzor hain tumhaara yeh pyaar....
Pushpak:Mera pyaar kamzor nahin hain,alright Raj??
Raj:Acha???Saabit karke dikhaado tak jaakar maanunga...
Pushpak:Deal!!(left from there)
Raj:Chalo,iska kaam toh ho gaya...Ab bas yehi dua hain ke Armaan bhi wohi karein jo maine usse kahhaa tha karne ke liye..Bharti ke dil mein jagah paane ke liye yeh pehla shuruvaat hoga!!Ek nayi shuruvaat!!!
~Basement of MU Building~
Mahi realized that she has reached the basement and she saw Mayank glaring at her.
Mayank:What exactly are you waiting for?
Mahi:I'm sorry...Woh...Don't mind me asking..(paused for a while)Niharika had talked a lil about Radhika..I..(hesitantly resumed)Could i see her photograph?
Mayank:What makes you think that i carry her photograph everywhere with me?
Mahi:I just thought that since you have the habit of talking to her when you're alone,i assumed that you'd carry her photograph with you..
Mayank:I do,for a fact,but i don't intend to show it to you for it's none of your business...So now,if you may..
Mahi:I'm sorry;i didn't mean to intervene but before i leave,this is my card..If you ever needed someone to talk to,you could contact me...
Mayank:Why would i contact you,when i have Niharika and Bharti by my side??And even if they are not,i'll sort my worries and probz on my own...Why would i bother you,after all these meshwork of misconceptions and ugly publicity??Take back your card...
Mahi:I'm just trying to help..
Mayank:I don't need anyone's help,especially your's!!No offence intended...
Mahi:Fine!!!Just to let you know,i'm trying to extend my gesture of friendship to you but i guess some people are just meant to die alone!!Whatever yo just said has surely hurt me and i'll never forget it!!(got out of his car and walked away)Sadoo kahi ka!!Main itni achi banne ki koshish kar rahi hoon aur woh hain ke..Hum dono ke ateet bohat gehre hain aur main sirf dosti ka haath badhaana chahthi thi par nahin..Usse toh sirf apne gham mein dhoobna hain..Par uske saath aisa kya hua hoga jo woh chupaana chahtha hain aur dhabaa kar rakhna chahtha hain apne dil mein??Main bhi kaisi kaisi baaton mein khoyi hoon..Mujhe uss sadoo se kya lena dena??(recollected the painting and the mention of Vedant Raiz's name as she entered her cabin)
