"Shona this is not
fair'you can't just kidnap us" Armaan says as Muskaan closes the car door after
pushing Armaan in.
"Baby'you could at
least tell us the place na? pleaseeee??" Rahul asks as Muskaan sits in.
"Armaan we are not
kidnapping you'we're just taking you somewhere" Shilpa replies as she drives.
"Yeah and just don't
open your mouths'or we'll throw you both in some river or something" Muskaan
says closing her eyes as she was really tired.
"Name the placeeee"
"Shut up Armaan..and
don't worry we're not gonna kill you or anything" Shilpa replies getting
"Armaan, I think I know
where they are taking us" Rahul whispers.
"Where?" Armaan asks
"Doesn't this street look
familiar?" Rahul says making Armaan look out the window.
"Yup..kind of..but I
don't know where it takes us" Armaan says still looking out the window.
"Acha Muski'can we stop
somewhere? Woh kya hai na'maine aur Armaan ne ab tak lunch nahi kiya'we were
waiting for you guys" Rahul smiles trying to hold Muskaan's hand but she hits
"We already ate'you
will have to wait till dinner" Muskaan replies.
"Oye'they are taking us
to the hookah bar" Armaan's eyes were wide open.
"Oh shit'that means they
were there that night huh" Rahul says thinking about last week when their
friend had forced them to go to his party at the hookah bar.
"Am not ready to die
yet'are you?" Armaan asks nervously.
"No!! Abhi toh I have
many things planned'I can't just die" Rahul says.
"Can you guys stop
whispering? It's annoying" Shilpa shouted.
"See we are at this
hookah bar'am gonna KILL Atul for forcing us to come here'" Armaan says getting
worried about what will Shilpa and Muskaan will do to them.
"Belly dance dekhne ka
bohot shauk hai na tum dono ko" Muskaan says pulling Rahul out of the car. And
Shilpa pulled out Armaan.
Pushing the guys onto
the chairs, the girls walk through a door in the far corner of the club.
"Where did those two go
now?" Armaan asks.
"Beats me.. dude you
think??" Rahul replies
"What? Oh that?? No
"I have to admit.. I
would be a little freaked out if they started belly dancing in front of us.."
"Dream on dude.. it ain't
your lucky day.. consider yourself lucky if you get out of here alive!" Armaan
puts on a grim expression.
"Should we do it now
Shilpa?" Muskaan whispers, looking at the guys through the camera they had
installed there previously.
"In the middle of the
club Muskaan? You serious? What if the cops find out?" Shilpa says.
"I'm tired of this
drama.. you know why I'm so interested in keeping him healthy right.. but
refuses to listen!" Muskaan runs her hand through her hair.
"I know what you mean..
I hate how they get all close to us.. I just want to end this asap and start a
new life.. but this isn't the place for such a rash act.. It's daylight.. and
there aren't too many people in the bar..we need a secluded place." Shilpa
"Yes.. but we tried it
at the cliff last time, and it didn't work out' lucky bast***s keep getting too
lucky'but it won't last forever" Muskaan says with an evil glint in her eye.
"Yup! So right now..
let's just put on a faade and start our drama.. we need to act convincing."
"Haven't we been doing
that for the past nine months" Muskaan sighs.
"I know' but just a
little bit more'and we will achieve our goal!" Shilpa smiles determinedly.
"Alright.. here I go.."
Muskaan says taking one last look at Rahul and Armaan in the camera.
"Rahul, yes we had seen
you guys that night'staring at the belly dancers and having fun with hookah and
all.." Muskaan says in a hurt tone.
"Armaan, if you wanted
to come here then you could have brought us here too na'you should have invited
us'but let me guess'you guys are embarrassed of us?" Shilpa asks coming out as
friend" Rahul tries speaking but Muskaan cuts him off.
"We don't wanna know
the reason'all we know is that we don't really think this relationship is going
anywhere" Muskaan says looking at Shilpa and then the guys' faces.
"We are sorry'we won't
do that'at least listen to us once?" Armaan pleaded.
"That's what we've been
doing from past 9 months Armaan'listening to you and forgiving, relationships don't
work this way you know" Shilpa replies placing her hand on his shoulder.
"We really love you
guys'" Rahul says getting up and looking deeply into Muskaan's eyes.
That's the thing she
hated about Rahul.
No matter how hard she
tried to get away from him, but his eyes would always stop her from doing
"You don't wanna be in
this relationship?" Armaan asks Shilpa..holding her hand in his.
Armaan's touch always
made her shiver'but she has to end this. Her heart doesn't want to agree but
her head is telling her to do something else.
Muskaan and Shilpa
looked at each other helplessly.
"Just a minute
Armaan...I..need some water I'll be back" Shilpa says taking her hand back.
Muskaan followed her.
"They seem serious
about this Rahul'" Armaan says looking down.
"Yes, we love them
though'more than our lives, I'll die without her" Rahul sighs.
"Yeah same here'"
"Muskaan I can't'"
Shilpa says trying to stop her tears.
"We have to
Shilpa'remember what they did to our parents?" Muskaan says as treas rolls down
"But may be it really
wasn't their fault'" Shilpa say holding Muskaan's hand.
"It is their fault'I
don't know why we melt every time'please Shilpa'be strong" Muskaan assures her.
"Ok let's just do it"
Shilpa smiles at Muskaan and they both walk out.
"Rahul.. I.. I can't do
this anymore" Muskaan says looking downward.
"But.. Musk.." Rahul
says edging closer, only to see Muskaan move further.
"No Rahul..this isn't
working.." Muskaan continues, looking everywhere except him.
"If you are so certain
look into my eyes and say it" Rahul says, his heart feeling like it's being
ripped to pieces.
"Noo.. what kind of
stupidity if that? I said it's over.. means it's over!" Muskaan shouts before
Rahul slumps onto the
chair watching her retreating figure.
starts off maintaining her distance from Armaan.
"No Shona.. you can't
do that to me!" Armaan says pulling Shilpa close by her shoulders.
"Armaan you are hurting
me!!" Shilpa says trying to pull out of his grip.
She knows she is lying
about the pain.. cause he would never treat her like that.. he was always
gentle with her.. but she couldn't be like this in his arms.. his touch was her
"Shona.. you are
hurting me.." Armaan rests his palm on her cheek "Just listen to me once na?"
Armaan asks, rubbing his thumb over her soft skin.
"I know.. that was not
right of me to do that. But I didn't do any of it with any wrong intentions..
and it's not that I don't trust you either.." Armaan says holding her hand "I
trust you with my life!"
Shilpa's head shoots up
hearing the last part of what he said, and silent tears start streaming down
"Shona.." Armaan asks
shaking her worriedly.
Thinking it was the
atmosphere, Armaan takes her outside.
"Don't cry.. I promise
this won't happen again" Armaan squeezes her hand gently.
Rushing back into the
same room they were in before, Muskaan wipes away her so-called tears.
But she has to admit..
a part of her did feel the pain of separation when she did that to Rahul, but
she convinced herself saying that this was needed.
"I will win her back"
Rahul says standing up "She says our relationship doesn't work right.. I will
prove it to her that she and I are meant to be" Rahul smiles through his tears.
Watching him on the cc
television from inside the room, a small smile creeps up on Muskaan's face, but
it leaves just as quickly as it arrived.
"You had promised me
before Armaan'what happened to those promises?" Shilpa asks pushing him away.
"Shona listen'" Armaan
tries going close to her but she stops him.
"Don't come closer
Armaan'it's over now" She says wiping her tears "We are not meant to be Armaan"
saying that she goes back in that room to get Muskaan.
Muskaan hugs Shilpa,
who was sobbing.
"It's ok Shilpa'we will
start a new life now..let's forget everything" Muskaan says caressing Shilpa's
hairs, trying to calm her down. She knows that Shilpa had started liking
"Next step Shilpa'are
you ready?" Muskaan asks coming out of the hug.
"Yeah, am ready" Shilpa
smiles wiping away her tears.
"That's like my sister"
"Rahul'she'she left me,
I can't live without her" Armaan says as he sees Rahul coming out.
"Don't worry Armaan, we
will prove them how much they mean to us" Rahul pats Armaan's back and smiles.
