Pia is standing under a gulmohur tree. The road is carpeted with the flamboyant red flowers. Abhay stops and hides behind a tree to watch her for a few moments. A few cars pass them by, but Abhay ignores them. Then he sighs and steps out from behind the tree. Even though they are so far apart that the traffic drowns out any sound of Abhay's approach, Pia turns to face him. Her face lights up with joy, but is soon clouded by confusion. Soon Abhay reaches her.
Abhay: Haan. Main hi hoon.
Pia: No. Jhooth bol rahe ho tum.
Abhay (looking away): What nonsense Pia! Tum phir shuru ho gayi.
Pia: No Abhay. Loogle told me. Your real name is Vivian Dsena, and you are dating Panchhi.
Abhay (shocked): WHAT? Are you crazy? Ek toh Google ki cheap imitation use karti ho, then you go believe whatever it says? I thought we were friends. Friends ke beech trust hota hai. And here you are spying on me. Just stay away from me, Pia Jaiswal!
Pia: Toh aur kya karoon main? Tum kuch bataate nahin ho. Kuch poochhoon toh bhaag jaate ho. I want to know. You know what, I have had enough. It's over. Goodbye Abhay.
[She starts walking away. Abhay is watching her when he suddenly realises that a truck is about to hit her. He pulls her away to safety onto the divider. Pia takes a moment to catch her breath, then hugs him tightly.]
Pia (sobbing): Kyun Abhay..kyun? Har baar tum meri jaan bachaate ho, par mujh se door rehte ho. Why?
Abhay (painfully): Yeh zaroori hai Pia. I have to do this.
Pia (looking up at him): But why Abhay? Kyun sab se alag, mujh se door rehte ho tum?
Abhay: Main tumhein nahin bataa sakta Pia. Bas samajh lo ki yeh zaroori hai.
Pia: No. Please Abha, don't leave me.Trust me.
[Abhay looks away from her pleading eyes. He sees the flowering trees swaying gently in the breeze, the cars, the bikes, the chaiwala baba waving to him frantically, and the roads. They were at a crossroads - three paths he could take, the fourth being the one he was already on. He sighs.]
Abhay: Okay Pia. I will tell you, but later. I have to leave next month, but before I go, I want us to get to know each other better.
Pia: W-where are you going?
Abhay: Somewhere. Don't ask me about it. Just...let us do this, okay?
Pia: Do I get to ask you questions?
Abhay (ruefully): Yes.
Pia (happily): Cool!
[They walk back to her hostel together.]
At the Raichands' place, Chaand stumbles upon LD in the hall, literally!
Chaand: What the heck are you doing lying on the floor?
LD: Chandu! Woh Abhay ne apshagun kiya na, toh trying to reverse it, gadhe ki poonchh se.
Chaand: What apshagun?
LD (getting up and dancing around him while singing):
Zor ka jhatka haaye zoron se laga..haan laga
Abhay ne mirror ko toda toh use milegi saza..haan saza
Chaand: What nonsense! Usse kya hota hai?
Chhaayegi udaasi, jaan ki pyaasi
Abhay ki girlfriend ko milegi phaansi
Chaand (thoughtfully): Really? Hmmm...
[He leaves. LD rolls around on the floor again.]
In his room, Chaand thinks.
Chaand: If that silly female is right, then yehi mauka hai...Pia ko Raichands ki bahu banaane ka. If she is about to die, then I can change her. Par iske liye pehle is.. *makes a face* LD ko rokna padega. But how?
[He thinks. Half an hour later, his face lights up. He goes out to the hall.]
T (angrily): How dare she! Panchhi Dobriyal ne T ko wait karwaaya, and then she did not come back! And I was trying to help her!
Her bimbo 1 (sympathetically): I know babes.
Her bimbo 2: Par ab tum kya karogi?
T (wickedly): Ab...T will show Panchhi Dobriyal is crime ka nateeja. Watch out, Miss Oh-not-so Perfect...T is coming!
When he gets into his car after dropping Pia off at the hostel, Abhay sees Siddharth sitting in the passenger seat.
Siddharth: Hello little brother.
[Abhay grunts in reply.]
Still not talking to me, huh?
Chalo, naaraaz toh naaraaz hi sahi. I just wanted to tell you that Pia is leaving Dehradoon. You want to say goodbye, abhi jaa kar bol do, because this is it. You will not see her ever again.
