Armaan:Our plans are changed..
Shreya:What do you mean?
Armaan:Well,for starters,let's just say... (paused and Shreya waited)...Our engagement will be preponed!!
Shreya:WHAT???Like what??Why are you so eager all of a sudden?I mean,hello,introduce me to the new Armaan here..
Armaan:Firstly you really gotta stop that and secondly i am serious about this.The engagement is preponed.I have talked to Maa about this and she's fine with it..
Shreya:You do understand that you won't be going to London any sooner just because you prepone the engagement,right?You are ruining my plans...
Armaan:Everyone's plans are being ruined,not only your's,k?No need to get so hyper now...Just do as i say..
Shreya:And your stupid farewell party?
Armaan:That...Cancel it!!Bye Shreya,I'm in a rush..
Shreya:What the...Now he wants to cancel and prepone and sorts...Damn him!!!
Just as she dashed to the conference room,she saw it.The TV was on and a live telecast with Raj was shown,disclosing the scandalous affairs of Trends,one at a time.She slowly glanced at Mayank who melded into the background and moved to the back,and towards his room.She looked back at the TV and was shocked seeing Armaan together with Raj.
'Was Raj and Armaan involved in this together???Why isn't Mayank sir stopping any of the rumours??'
Shreya continued watching the news and hearing Raj and Armaan talk about Trends.
Raj: Since the start,there has been so much rumors about Trends and Men's Universe and their aggressive competition.Sure this is true but as of late,defamation suit has been filed against us by Mr Gaurav from Trends with no probable cause.He is a primary stakeholder in Trends and not only that,he is a criminal lawyer who sure knows his ways to bend the laws to his way so we have no doubt that these scandals are genuine.
Armaan:Scandals as these need to be highlighted for concealing them led to the success peak of Trends.We have to thank a person of seniority in this but he or she prefers to be unknown.Fashion world has reached enormous heights of atrocities,thanks to such people.There are lots of mosuse of power and harassment matters that have arisen in Trends and lots more waiting to be disclosed.
Raj:If you ask about Men's Universe,we have been in the trade for over 5 years and we have not come across much cases,nothing that would lead to such scandals.In fact,our boss,Mr Amarjeet wouldn't tolerate such preposterous and outrageous attitudes at all.
'Is this the end to the former successful magazine whose standards has been compared and matched to international magazines?What will become of Trends?Stay tuned as we bring you exclusive coverage of the company itself,all footage included.'
Shreya and Ishaan followed Mayank out while the rest started arguing and panicking about their future.It was a big bomb blast which they had never predicted.
Shreya:Sir!!! (tagged along with Ishaan and followed Mayank to the carpark)
Mayank:Stop following me,you two!!Don't you get what's happening??
Shreya:Sir,aap ki bhaagne se...I mean...
Mayank:Mujhe bhaagna pasand nahin hai Shreya...Your boyfriend is the cause of all these!!
Mayank:Asked him for help and he blackmailed me in return...I didn't know what it was for..but he sure helped me to shut down Trends sooner... (Ishaan gasped)
Ishaan:Shut...Sir,kitne log yahaa kaam karte hai..Sab ko jawab dena hai..
Mayank:I don't know and I don't care!!Ho sake toh yahaa se kahi aur job dhoondo aur aage bhado...
Ishaan:Sir,aap kahaa jaaoge??
Mayank:Ek jagah,jahaa pe koi nahin pohanchega...Good day!!(drove from there)
Ishaan:Dhoob gaye hum Shreya...
Shreya:Armaan ne yeh sab kyun kiya Mayank sir ke saath?
Ishaan:Kahin wajah ho sakti hai..
Shreya:Engagement bhi prepone kiya tha usne...Aaj bata raha tha mujhe...Par kyun??
Ishaan:Sach saamne laane ke liye,dost ko madat karne ke liye ya phir kuch paane ke liye...
Ishaan:Mayank sir ne kaha tha ke Armaan yeh info paane ke liye thodi si blackmail kar raha tha Mayank sir ko madat karne ke liye...Shayad Mayank sir ki koi majburi...
Shreya:Yaane ki Niharika ya phir.... (widened her eyes)Bharti!!
Ishaan:Bharti...Bull's eye!!Shayad Bharti hi sab ki hal hai...
Shreya:Ya phir dard ho...Aisa dard ki kabhi jaye na....!!!
