Manyata was holding her forehead, seething with anger, sitting in the car which she had called up to pick her after the accident. Uday's words still fresh in her mind, pricking her left and right. Manyata had controlled the urge to chuck the money on his face because she didn't want to fall in her own eyes. "Rajkumari ji, ghar aa gaya", said the Driver. Manyata was jolted out of her train of thoughts. Manyata walked out in speed. Komal saw Manyata walk inside quietly, she immediately sensed something wrong. "Manyata", called out Komal. Manyata turned back. Komal saw the handkerchief tied around her elbow and immediately caressed her hands and asked worried, "Bohot chott lagi hai kya, Beta. Aap toh keh rahe the phone par ki chotta si takar hui thi". Manyata pacified her mother and said, "Nahi Maa, thodi si kharoch aayi hai bas. Aur dekhiye khoon bhi behna bandh ho gaya hai". Manyata showed her the elbow, but she suddenly had a flashback of how coldly the guy had tied the handkerchief and pushed her, a frown formed over her face. Komal noticed this and asked, "Kya baat hai Beta". Manyata asked, irritation written all over her face, "Maa, logon ko ho kya gaya hai? Paise aa gaye toh tameez aur insaaniyat bhool jaate hain". Komal was shocked at Manyata's tone of voice, because Manyata is always sweet and balanced but somehow at this moment, she was just venting out her frustration. "Accident jis se hua, ussne zaroor kucch bura bhala kaha hoga! Hum Maharaj se kehte hain ki woh acche se khabar lein uski", said Komal. Manyata caught Komal's hands and pleaded, "Please Maa! Papa se kucch mat kahiye, itne dino baad aayi hun aur unka mood phir se bigad jaayega". "Par Beta usse aise kaise jaane dein", said Komal. Manyata said, "Maa, usse sazaa dene ka koi matlab banta hai jiske sudharne ke koi mauke hote hain. Lekin iss aadmi se toh kucch bhi kehna bekaar hai". Manyata walked to her room in irritation leaving Komal worried.
Jai just came in with shopping bags in her hands, with a big grin on her face. "Hi Mom", she wished Komal as she passed her. Komal said, "Jai, I hope aapko yaad hai ki itne saalon baad aapki behen ghar aayi huin hain". Jai bit her tongue and turned back, "Yaad hai na, Mom! Isiliye toh hum Jeeji k liye shopping krne gayye the", Jai showed her the shopping bags. Komal was not at all impressed. "Manyata ka ek chhota saa accident hua hai", said Komal worried. "Accident? Aap log kaise drivers rakhte hain Mom!", said Jai. "Aapki Jeeji khud gaadi chala rahi thi, woh scooty jo aapke Dad ne unhe gift ki thi. Kisi car ne aa k thok di", said Komal. Jai said nonchalantly, "I am sorry, Mom! But agar aap logon ne jeeji ko raaste pe scooty chalane k liye chhoda tha, toh inn sab k liye toh taiyaar rehna chahiye. I mean joh log sadkon pe gaadi chalatey hain, unko guarantee kaun le sakta hai. Isiliye toh badi gaadiyon mein ghumna log zyada pasand krte hain. Par Jeeji ko toh yeh sab muskil tareekey se pata chalta hai". Komal said, "Inn sab baaton mein ek baar bhi aapne poocha nahi ki aapki Jeeji kaisi hain". Jai rolled her eyes and said, "Aapne kahaan ki chhota sa accident hua tha. Aur aap yahan hai, Jeeji k paas nahi so naturally woh theek hongi. Please, isse itna bada issue mat banaiye". Jai left for her own room. Komal was displeased with Jai's behavior.
Uday was in his room, his talks with Manyata flashing his mind. Uday was baffled anf asked himself, "Is that girl for real?". "I mean, humare saamne, Yuvraj Udayveer Singh k saamne muh kholne ki zururrat", said Uday in a condescending tone. Uday felt like punishing himself for helping her out, how could he just help a girl who dared to insult him, what was he thinking? "Dada", said Unnati entering the room. Uday looked at Unnati. Unnati was shocked seeing the anger on her brother's face. "Aap theek toh hai na?", asked Unnati. Uday twisted his face in anger and said, "Humein kya ho sakta hai". "Okay, Iska matlab aap bohot gussa hain. You want to talk about it?", asked Unnati. Uday sighed and said, "Kucch nhi hua hai, Chhoti". Unnati understood that his brother won't reveal the reason for his anger so, she swiftly changed the topic. "Dada, aap party k liye taiyaar bhi nahi hue. Hum toh aapko bulaane aaye the", said Unnati. Uday remembered that there was a party organized in his restrobar for winning "Polo Player of the Year" award. "Aap bhool gayye the?" asked Unnati surprised. "Woh humare dimaag se hi nikal gaya", said going through his wadrobe. "Humne suna hai ki aaj Manyata ghar waapas aayi hai", said Unnati. Uday paused for a bit and replied, "Zaheer si baat hai naa, kal humare ghar k pooja mein woh shaamil hone waali hai toh aaj ho aayi hogi". Unnati knew that there was no point asking him whether he wanted to meet her today itself because Uday would never tell the truth.
Manyata was in her room. She was really angry, as the knot the Uday had put was diffcult to open and she wanted it off as soon as possible. Manyata finally opened the knot and threw it in force venting out her frustration. Just then the door opened, Jai walked in and saw Manyata huffing puffing in anger. "Woah! Aap hum par itni gussa hai", remarked Jai. Manyata calmed down immediately and put on a smile. "Haan...Jai ki bacchi, main yahaan aayi hui hoon aur tu bhaag gayi shopping k liye. Ek din toh unn mall waalon ko baksh de!", said Manyata faking anger. Jai smirked and said, "Jeeji, humare wajah se toh woh mall chalta hai". Manyata smiled and shook her head. Manyata advanced to hud Jai but Jai gestured her to stop. Manyata was confused and asked, "Kya hua". "Hum abhi abhi taiyaar huye hain ek khaas party k liye", replied Jai. Manyata smiled mischieviously and said, "Theek hai toh main tera make-up kharaab kr deti hoon". Jai stared at her in disbelief. Manyata went and lifted a jug containing water in her hands. "No Jiji", said Jai alarmed. Manyata took baby steps towards Jai threatening to throw the water on Jai. Jai had already covered her face with her hands and taking backwards steps. "Yeh gaya!", exclaimed Manyata pretending to throw the water. "Nahiii...", screamed J and ran away. Manyata giggled hard, shaking her head.
J collided with Vijay on the way. "Humara road runner bhai, please shaant", said Vijay. "Manyata Jeeji hum par paani phenkne waali thi", said J catching her breath. "Really? Chalo, armaano par paani phenkne se toh accha hi hai", joked Vijay. "Chaliye Vijay Bhai, we are getting late to the party", said J. "Aarey hum Manyata Bhai ko bhi saath le chalte hai na, bohot zyada entertainment ho jaayega. Socho humein jo reporter tang karega Manyata Bhai un par paani ka gubaara phenkti rahegi", joked Vijay. J said, "Very funny, Vijay Bhai! Par aap toh Jeeji ko jaante hain na, wahaan ek jagah baithi rahengi, phir log poochenge ki tumhari badi behen ko kya hua, do ghaante mein ghar jaane ki zidd karegi". "Aur tumse saara spotlight chheen legi", completed Vijay teasing her.J smirked and said, "Humse spotlight, woh bhi Jeeji chheenengi? I mean please, agar chheen sakti naa ab tak cheen liya hota. In fact Devgarh ka chehra hume ban na pada kyunki Jeeji ko socializing ya ek Princess ban ne mein koi dischasspi nahi thi". "Wow! Tum toh aise bol rahi ho jaise Devgarh ka chehra ban kr tumne bohot bada balidaan diya hai", joked Vijay. J smiled and said, "Hum yeh nahi keh rahe hain ki humne koi sacrifice kiya hai bas yeh ki Jeeji ne bhi koi sacrifice nahi kiya hai. Hota hai, kucch logon mein woh princess waali quality nahi hoti". Vijay remarked, "Sacrifice toh Manyata ne kiya hai, yahan waapas aane k liye. Par kyun?". J rolled her eyes and said, "Jeeji ka naach gaana Dad k bardassht k bahaar ho gaya hoga, aur kya". "Really? Aur ussi wajah se Brij Mama ne usse woh scooty gift ki thi? How wonderful!", remarked Vijay. Something struck J and she started smiling. "Kya hua J Bhai? Koi scooter waala PJ yaad aa gaya kya", asked Vijay. J shook her head and said, "Jeeji humari shaadi mein shaamil hone aayi hain. Iska matlab, baat poori tarah se pukki ho gayi". Vijay exclaimed, "OH no! Phir se wohi behki behki baatein shuru ho gayi! Dekho J Bhai, Uday aur tumhara rishta nahi ho raha". J said, "Vijay Bhai, just wait and watch. Aaj kal hum future predict kar sakte hain, Uday bohot jaldi propose krne waala hai kisi ladki ko". "Tumhari tabiyat bigadti jaa rahi hai, Jai Bhai. Manyata Bhai ko le jaate hain, kum se kum tumhe hospital lene mein sahara mil jaayega", said Vijay. "Too much, Vijay Bhai", said J and left along with Vijay.
Jai reaches the party and sees Uday opening the champagne admist the hot shot models and princesses. Jai smirked and thought to herself, "Bas kucch hi din phir hum haq se tumhe inn ladkiyon k beech se le jayenge". Uday said his victory speech and everyone cheered and clapped for him. "Please enjoy the party. Aur yeh humari party hai toh please loosen up, let yourself free!", said Uday! Everyone cheered him on! The DJ hit the music and a wild crowd joined the dance floor. Uday made his way through the crowd and joined Unnati at the drinks bar. "Kya hua, Uday? Tumhari khushi mein sab naach rahe hain aur tum yahin baithe ho! So not done!", remarked Jai while she sat beside him. An unexplicable smile formed on Uday's face hearing Jai's voice and he looked behind J and scanned the room. Jai was confused as to what uday was searching. Uday's smile disappeared and he took a sip of his drink. Unnati could very well understand why her brother reacted in the way he did so she asked Jai, "Manyata nahi aayi?". Uday took another sip of his drink trying to act unaffected. Jai rolled her eyes and said, "Jeeji ko yeh sab pasand hi nahi, bilkul Daadi Amma types! Woh yahaan hoti bhi toh Uday k speech k baad hi ghar chali jaati". Uday smirked. "Waise aacha hi hai tum log unse pooja mein hi mil rahe ho, baaki toh aisi jagahon par impossible hai", remarked Jai. "Uday ko kya hua hai", asked Jai. Unnati replied with a mischievious smile, "Manyata ki yaadon mein doobe hue hain". Uday rolled his eyes and said, "What rubbish!". Jai echoed Uday's words and said, "Joke of the Year! I am sure Uday ko toh Manyata ka M bhi yaad nahi hoga". Uday smirked knowing that the truth is quite opposite.
Manyata was in her room trying to find a good book to read when Komal enetered. Komal asked Manyata, "Jai ko humne kaha tha aapko Udayveer ki party mein le kar jaaye. Phir, aap yahaan kyun hain?". Manyata thought that maybe she sacred Jai away, that's why she forgot to tell her so she covered up and replied, "Woh, meri tabiyat kucch theek nahi lag rahi thi". Komal gets worried hearing this and chides, "Humne kaha tha medicines kha li jiye lekin aapne kaha ki kharoch aayi hai. Main aap k liye dawai leke aati hun". "Maa", said Manyata and stopped Komal. "Main theek hoon, bas bahaana banaya tha. Aapko toh pata hai na, ki yeh parties wagere mein jaane mein mujhe koi interest nahi. Hum log kal unke ghar jaa hi rahe hain na", reasoned Manyata. Komal said, "Dekhiye, Beta! Aapki rishte ki baat chal rahi hai Udayveer se. Aage chalkar aap dono jeevan saathi bhi ban sakte hain, aapko unki lifestyle, unke atmosphere, sabmein ghulna milna hoga. Aap ek baar jayiye aur dekhiye aapki aane waale zindagi kaise mahol mein kattne waali hai, aur apne aap ko uss tarah se dhaaliye". Manyata had nothing to say as her mother was right. Komal placed her hand on Manyata's head and said, "Iss rishtey pe bohot aas lagaye baithe hain, hum aur aapke Papa. Lekin, aap ko bhi iss rishtey k taraf sacchi koshish krni hogi". Manyata nodded.
Manyata got ready for the party and reached the restrobar. Manyata sent the driver home thinking that it would be better if she returned with Jai and Vijay rather than returning alone. Manyata entered the restrobar and say the crowd going crazy on the dancefloor. Manyata was not deterred by it because she had almost roamed the world and was well acquainted with the pub culture though she never liked it and stayed away from it, what scared Manyata was the though one of these people might be the person she has to spend her whole life with. Suddenly, the screaming level increased as the DJ started to play the hit number- "Tu Mera Hero" from the film Desi Boyz.
Uday had come on the dance floor and the ladies had gone mad seeing him especially the DJ playing "Tu Mera Hero" that time. Uday was surrounded by all the girls. Uday just loved the attention, who wouldn't? A married man maybe, but he was single! The girls were holding him from everywhere, swaying with him, trying to seduce him. Udayveer also got into the act. Manyata could now see the guy, it was the same Mr.Superiority Complex whom she had an unpleasant experience with this morning. The way the guy was flirting and dancing closely with all the girls, disgusted Manyata. Manyata turned around so that the guy couldn't see his face. "Aise dost hain, Udayveer ke!", said Manyata disgusted. Manyata was looking around to spot Jai or Vijay but it was too dark and crowded. Suddenly, the music changed and changed into a sensual number, "Dekh Le, Aankhon Mein Aankhen Daal". Jai just crossed Manyata, Manyata tried to call her but she seemed to be possessed. Manyata got short-circuited seeing Jai walking towards Mr.Superiority Complex(as Manyata termed him). Manyata's eyes were as big as it could be and her mouth was half-open as Jai, set aside all the girls on the floor and tried to seduce him with a very close dance. Manyata felt dizzy. Suddenly someone caught Manyata's hand. Manyata turned to see a guy, who she presumed to be drunk, grinning at her and said, "Lets dance, baby!". Manyata threw a death glare at him, freed her hand and said, "Apne hadh mein rahiiye! Dance k liye poochne k liye aur bohot tareeke hain, tameez naam ki koi cheez hoti bhi hai ya nahi". Uday could hear a familiar voice, it was stern and assertive, just like that girl. Uday shook it off and twirled Jai who was in a different mood today clinging on to Uday. "Dekho babes, aise baat mat ho karo you are becoming irresistible", said the guy to Manyata. Manyata was disgusted and clicked her fingers at him and said, "Ek thappad padega naa, saari hekdi bahaar nikal aayegi! Kisi raste k loafer se kum nahi ho tum, agli baar muh kholne se pehle soch lena ki iska anjaam kya ho sakta hai-Haan Nahi Toh". Its definitely her thought Uday and turned in the directon of the sound, he could spot her leaving the Restrobar. Uday had the inexplicable urge to follow her, he followed her leaving Jai on the dance floor. Jai was shocked by his behavior and so were others. Manyata was outside the restrobar and she held her forehead and told herself, "Yeh kya tha!!!! Yehi meri aane waali zindagi ka mahol hai?". Manyata felt disgusted. "Oh! Haan-Nahi-Toh" heard Manyata and turned back to see Mr.Superiority Complex standing there with a smile as if he had just found his prey. Manyata thought it was wise to ignore him and leave from there. Uday caught hold of Manyata's wrist and pulled her towards him with such force that they came very close, a few inches between them, they could feel each other's breath on their faces. "Itni jaldi kahaan chaldi?", asked Uday in a seductive tone and a mischievious smirk. "Tumse matlab?", asked Manyata throwing a deadly glare at him and not at all unnerved by their closeness. Manyata wrestled to get her wrist out of his hold. Uday just left her wrist because he was mighty impressed with her persistence and her flair, Manyata rubbed her wrists and threw a confusing look at him. Uday put his hands in his pocket and brought his face closer to hers and said, "Humare restro-bar mein kaun aate jaate hain, usse humein matlab hai". Manyata thought that Udayveer might have rented the place for the party. "Tumhe har jagah tameez par lecture dene k liye bulaya jaata hai kya", asked Uday. "Hogayi, bakwaas? Ab waapas jao aur apni jawani ko enjoy karo, Haan Nahi Toh", said Manyata. Uday bit his lip in mischief by listening to her reply. Uday pulled her by arm and pinned her onto the wall. "Yeh kya badtameezi hai", yelled Manyata struggling to break free of his hold. "Tameez shabd k copyrights hum le jaayen toh tumhe shayad sabse mehenga padega, naa", said Uday biting his lips looking at Manyata's face from up to down. "Tumhari problem kya hai?", asked Manyata highly irritated. "Humari problem yehi hai ki hum tumhari mystery solve hi nai kar paa rahe hain. Humse jhagda krne waali ladki humare jashnn mein shaamil ho aur humein pata hi nahi", said Uday with a smirk. Manyata said, "Yeh ek open restrobar hai koi abhi aa sakta hai, bas? Solve hogayi mystery". Uday was amused by her, no way he was going to let her go so soon. Uday whispered in Manyata's ears in a husky voice, "Waise aur bhi kahin mysteries hai". Manyata shivered. Manyata gathered herself and told in a stern voice, "Dekho agar tum subah ka badla le rahe ho, toh bohot hi ghatiya tareeka socha hai tumne. Main un ladkiyon mein se nahi jo andar tumhare aage peeche gir rahi thi, toh yeh sab tantebaaji mere saamne mat kariyo, haan nahi toh". Manyata stopped from saying anything furthur as she noticed that Udayveer was staring at her lips and her words had no effect on him. Manyata was dead scared, sweat began trickling down her forehead. Uday released one of her hands. Uday moved his finger seductively upwards from Manyata's cheek to her forehead thus capturing the sweatdrop. Uday chucked the sweatdrop, winked at her and said, "Relax! Hum bas apni jawaani enjoy kar rahe the". "Disgusting", yelled Manyata and stormed off from there now that Uday had released her. Uday looked to her direction, joke or not, she had turned him on in a big way, he needed a lot of effort to pull himself back from her. Uday just couldn't stop smiling while Manyata couldn't stop frowning.
