Hi fellow ArBians and BBians....This is your lovable author, Jassie here.I truly want to thank you for waiting long enough to read this latest entry of JLH. BUT WAIT!!!
There's a new change in the update schedule which I would like to experiment.Due to the brimming fact that I'm 4 months pregnant, I can't focus so much on typing long JLH updates.But that doesn't mean that there won't be any updating; how is that even possible for me to upset my dearest loyal readers?? Hence....I'll be posting short sects of the series on a daily basis instead of a weekly basis.Now isn't that fun or what???
What do you think? Do drop me off your comments about the latest trend of socialising with all of you...
This is the special edition for the 5th anniversary of BB..May we get lots more to come....
Armaan reached home quickly, grabbing a close look over Bharti's file, her scribbled notes organised in a presentation format of the upcoming project proposals of Trends. He shut the file promptly.He wondered, this file shouldn't even be in his hands right now.He felt real concerned for Bharti and browsed through his mobile contacts, scrolling to reach her name.Looking at her name just brought back a thousand messages and SMS texts both used to share, just before and after important presentations or even projects.He didn't dare call her or text her this time round but he knew he could not sit still and watch Bharti face the penalty for Vinita's sly schemes, whatever she had in mind.
Raj:Dude..What's the important matter you called for?
Armaan:(told him everything about the file) I don't know what I should do now..I just panicked!!
Raj:Well, instead of that, you should have just headed to Trends..Fine, fine..But please return the file tomorrow asap..Do you get me??
Armaan:Got it Raj..
Raj:I met her for a round of drinks by Rheo Pub tonight..She didn't appear shaken up or anything, just not herself..She just took some red wine, apparently transforming herself into a dignified mum of Naina's..
Armaan:That's unlike her..
Raj:You can take the extra credit for bringing this quick metamorphosis within her..Damn you, Armaan!! She was going all so moved on types and that she cares a lot about your happiness, crap. .
Armaan:She talked about me?
Raj:I provoked her indirectly and she had to lean in, succumb after all..
Armaan:What did she say?
Raj:(had flashes of his and Bharti's conversation) Bharti, M3 is a project we both discussed in ulterior detail..How can you just give up on it like that?
Bharti:I'm not giving up, Raj..In fact, I want you to move ahead with your dream project; just that this time round, I'm not going to be there with you..Have you forgotten that I'm currently working in Trends??
Raj:Uff Bharti, this is not only my project, it's ours!!
Bharti:I'm giving you full credit so take it Raj..Work on it, launch it!! Be famous, make it work for your career..
Raj:Bharti, why are you complicating matters??
Bharti:On the contrary, I'm keeping things simple..It's people like you and Nihar who miss out on opportunities and lose out in the long run!!
Raj:Oh really? What about you and Armaan? What kind of games are you both playing with each other?
Bharti:Nothing from my side, Raj..He's getting engaged to Shreya. .Nothing so exciting is happening in my life.. (saw Raj get drunk and took his glass away)
Raj:What's wrong with you? Let me drink..
Bharti:Not anymore, Raj..You've got to drop me home quick..Come!!
Raj:Since when have you cared about the time, yaar?
Bharti:Ever since I've made an instant resolution to be the best mum I can be to Naina..
Raj:Tell me something then..What has changed so much between you and Armaan? What happened to the "secret friend" equation you two shared for so long? How could it have changed?
Bharti:Time changes everything, Raj and that includes our friendship..Who said I've stopped caring for him? He's always my "secret friend" in my heart but he mistook that friendship for an unrequited love..If you do have the time, compel him to move on for I've literally got fed up of reiterating myself
Raj:So you claim you don't love him? (Bharti smiled) He loves you, Bharti, deeply and madly..
Bharti:No, he doesn't or else he would not be getting engaged in the first place..He's doing the right thing of opening himself up to Shreya's love..You and Jiya are his greatest support in life, be there for him, hmm?? (Raj's eyes welled up as he dropped Bharti home)
Armaan:She's right..Shreya loves me and that's all that matters!!
Raj:You didn't notice her eyes, Armaan!! Her eyes welled up when she was talking about you..She cares a lot about you and I think she didn't mean for things to happen like this between you two..
Armaan:Not in the slightest way I care and crave for her so I don't need that from her!! I'll go to Trends tomorrow morning and pass the file to her..Good night!!
Raj:Nitezz, Armu! !(hung up) Nihar,I miss you so much!! If only you were here...
