Im soo sorry for the late reply. I was soo busy with things. But here is what i quickly typed up in the past hour! Please ignore mistakes!
Rano whined. "Mujhe bahar chalna hai."

was Wednesday evening in the Walia Industries, and Ranveer was absorbed in the
London Project, to which Jai managed to find a solution. However, that involved
alot of work and Ranveer was soon caught up with files and reports, making his
five-month-pregant wife, very cranky. She came to his office, in the hopes that
he would take her out to dinner.

Yahi office pe kaam kar rahe the. Yeh bhi nahi soocha main ghar pe kitni akeli

know she wants you to come," Ranveer said. Having lost his mother at an
early age, Ranveer always looked up to Krishna as his own mother and she too
returned the affection. She often saw her "Didi", Uday's brother's
wife, in Ranveer.
smiled. "Haan, kitni sweet hai," she said. "Hamesha meri
check-ups pe aati hai, magar tum ho ki, mujhe ignore hi karthe ho!"
she said. "Aab tum mujhse baat bhi nahi karthe ho!"
waited for a response, but got none. "Teek hai," she said, standing
up. "Mat karna baat. Main jaa rahi hoon!"

left the office. Cursing himself,
Ranveer ran after his wife, informing his PA outside to cancel the rest of the
meetings for the day.
followed Rano to Bani's office, where he, once again, regretted walking in.
Rano too stopped in her tracks watching an angry Bani, towering over Jai.
YOU INSANE?" Bani yelled at a smiling Jai, who was relaxed, sitting on the
couch. Next to him, bani looked scary, her hair falling out of her ponytail,
her perfectly ironed shirt, now crumpled. "You blackmailed the

why are we NOT making any changes?" Bani asked. "Why is it only one

course I do," Ranveer replied. "They fight everytime and I am stuck
in the middle, trying to stay neutral."
Rano sympathsized. "Poor baby!"

finished his rant with a puppy face, a face Rano couldn't let go of. If she
wasn't pregnant, and if she wasn't in one of her "moods", she
probably wouldn't believe his, overly dramatic explanation. But today, it was
different. She turned around and hugged him.
am sorry," she said and then gave him a kiss on the cheek. Ranveer's face
spread into a big smile as the couple broke apart to notice that Bani's shouts
stopped. Instead, both Jai and Bani were watching the duo in silence.
Ranveer said, his hand still protectively around Rano's waist.
shook his head and turned back to Bani, who was hit with flash of her own
moments with her husband.
you are done yelling," Jai said. "Kya hum chale?"
glared at him. "Main chilla rahi hoon?"
you were," Jai replied. "And I am sure Ranveer and Rano will agree
should have left," Rano whispered to Ranveer, who nodded.
"Main chilla rahi thi

decided to save poor Rano. "Tum dono late nahi ho rahe hain?"

one day and finalizing our partnership for the second."

Rano needs a change of atmosphere."
she doesn't," Ranveer said quickly, disappointing Rano. "Waise bhi,
mujhe bahut saara kaam hai. I can't afford to miss two days!"
sighed. "Stop lying Ran," he said.

he took Rano's hands and steered her out of the room.
nahi jaane hai, toh baata do na," Rano said, once they were outside Bani's
office. "Bahane kyun bana rahe ho?"
smiled. "If you seriously think, that I will give up a chance to be with
you for two days, then let me tell you,
you are wrong!"
scrunched her eyebrows in confusion. "Matlab?"
ki," Ranveer said. "Yeh saab Kaaki ka idea tha... Jai aur Bani ko
akele time spend karne ka mauka. Toh hum kyun un dono ke beech mein pade?"
smiled, while Jai and Bani, who were hearing the conversation from the door,
exchanged exasperated looks.

dono ko milane ki koshish kyun karthe hai!"
scoffed. "Zaroor tumne kuch kiya!"

tumhare saath weekend spend karna chatha hoon?"
khud ek pagal ho," Banir retoted. "Tho, kuthe ki kya zaroorat
me," Jai said sarcastically. "Tumhare saath chalne ke liye, I would
need alot of motivation. Kutha ya no kutha!"
rolled her eyes. "Well, we have no choice now, do we?"
shrugged. "I'd rather kill myself than go with you."
tried to not let Jai's biting remarks get to her. "Its no different from
my side either Jai."
Jai ignored her, his eyes lighting up as a new plan formed in his mind.
watched as Bani stuggled to pack.
hua?" she asked, when Bani was caught between two dresses.
don't know which one to wear," Bani replied. "Should I be classic and
proffessional or sexy and hot?"
laughed. "Its a party Bani," she said. "Who cares?"
not just a party," Bani said, holding up the dresses and looking into the
mirror. "Its one of the biggest parties in town and obviously people are
going to be taking pictures left right and center! And besides, did you see the
was confused. "Nahi, kyun?"
gorgeous!" Bani said, almost squealing with excitment. "Its near Mt.
Abu, so obviously there is all the nature aspect of it. But apparently
Mr.Malhotra went out of his way to make sure every room was properly built and
decorated. And the upper rooms, where me and Jai are staying are apparently
very beautiful. Its like another honeymoon all over..."
smiled. "Seems like Bani is falling for Jai all over again!"
tried not to roll her eyes. "Even Rano wanted to come... but Ranveer said
no. You know how he doesn't like traveling much?"
nodded. "I am glad you are going then," she said. "you and Jai
need the break!"
bani said. "Just imagine, agar tum wahan gayi toh, Tarun ke saath? Jai ke
paas extra invitations hai. You and Tarun can finally spend time together. And
its only two days..."
seed was planted as Lakshmi's eyes couldn't help but imagine a weekend getway,
especially with Tarun, who didn't have much time for her nowadays.
hua?" Bani asked, smirking at her success.
you really have invitations?" Lakshmi asked.
Bani replied. "Chalo na!"
eyes lit up with excitement as she picked up her phone and dialed Tarun's
number. She arrived at dinner, later that evening, her face alive with

smiled and turned to look at Jai, who supressed his own smile. While Krishna
wasn't too happy with this change of events, she could only hope that seeing
Tarun and Lakshmi, Jai and Bani would remember what it felt like to be in love.
And finally, after alot of convincing from Jai, Ranveer agreed to take Rano. So
the plan was set, all six of them, were driving to the hotel the next day
way," Bani said, as she stared wide-eyed.

was Friday morning and Jai and Bani just arrived at the hotel, where they were
given the honeymoon suite, located on the top floor - it was as big as a single
bedroom apartment. In addition to a sitting room, with a flatscreen TV and a
lavish bed, the balcony looked out the mountains of Mt. Abu, beside which there
was a swimming pool.

no!" Jai said. "I love this room and if anyone is leaving, it is
is leaving?" Rano said, walking in and being momentarily shocked with the
beauty of the room. "Wow!"
sighed. Her happiness at having a separate room from Jai diminished as she
realized there is no way she could get another room for herself, with four
people around who didn't know the truth.
answered Rano's question. "Bani."
Rano asked. "Room acha nahi laga?"
scrambled to find an excuse. "Nahi, woh... I am scared of heights."
laughed. "Toh kya hua? Jai hai na!"
nodded, repressing the urge to tell Rano, how much Jai would really help her.
He would take her to the balcony and threaten to push her off. But deep down,
he would do it, to make her let go of the fear and she would, because it was
him holding her. But then again, this would happen, if she was really scared of

began to prepare for the upcoming meeting. "Bani, zara woh file
looked down and sure enough, in front of her, on a table was a file that looked
pretty important. She smiled wickedly and picked it up. "Come get
it," she replied.
stared at the file in her hand. "What do you mean?"

cant you give it to me?" Jai asked confused.
I get scared for everything right?" She reminded. "So, mujhe darr lag
raha hai yeh file tumhe dene ke liye."
was obvious that something was going on in her head - her voice was way to
sweet. But what it was, Jai had no idea and so, he hesitantly took a step
forward. When nothing happened, he proceeded towards her.
grinned. "Not so fast," she said, walking to the balcony, while Jai
rukho," Jai said, while she ran around the table placed outside. "Woh
file important hai!"
how dare you call me a scaredy-cat?" she retorted, while avoiding Jai.
it continued - a cat and mouse again yet again. Jai trying to get to Bani, but
she always managing to avoiding his hand. And finally, they both stopped,
catching their breath.
held up the file and threatened to drop it from the balcony.
Jai warned. "Warna bahut pachthaogi!"
smirked even more. "Mujhe dhaamki deh rahe ho? Aab toh isse phekna hi
as she was open to throw the file into the air, Jai ran forward and caught her
hand. While the file managed to be safe, now in Jai's hand, Bani lost her
balance due to the sudden impact and fell into the pool in the balcony, pulling
