Next day Aayesha's phone rings. The voice on the phone tells her about a hot
and happening party that is being organized over the weekend in bangkok.
Aayesha: Oh really, so the party is on saturday, ok let me call up my travel
agent and ask him to book me on a flight to bangkok on friday.
Person on the phone: Arre Ayesha, Friday ko kyun tumhe yahan kal hi ana

Ram just nods. Aayesha leaves. Ram is done with the breakfast so he waves
goodbye to the kids, gives a glance to Priya and goes off to work. From the car
he calls up Saumya
Ram: Saumya thanks. Mein kya karta tere bagair?
Saumya: Its a pleasure to do this for you and bhabhi. ok have a nice day or

Ram tells Saumya: Saumya mein Priya aur kids ko lekar kahin bahar jana
chahata hoon. yahan rahenge to hazar distractions hongi, aur mein chahta hon
ki we spend some quality time together as a family and bond together and
make up for the lost time.
Saumya: Bhappa, I am with you, kahiye how can I help you set this up?
Ram: tu to janti hai, if I declare that I am taking the kids and Priya for a
vacation, Aayesha aur mamaji kuch na kuch karenge, aur phir sab chaupat ho
jayega. So I want you to call one of your socialite friends and ask her to
arrange a party somewhere, I dont' know... anywhere outside India, but other
than Singapore and invite Aayesha to it and make her feel as though she is the
star of the show. That way she will leave immediately without even thinking
Saumya:Don't worry Bhappa, ho jayega, lekin haan Singapore kyun nahi?
Ram: kyunki, I am taking my family there.
Saumya: oh... don't worry leave it to me.

Next day Aayesha takes the early morning flight and leaves for Bangkok along
with mamaji. That night Ram is super excited and comes home early. He
spends the whole evening playing with the kids. At the dinner table,
Ram: Ma I am planning to take the kids out on a vacation to Singapore for a
KK: Arre, thats nice, lekin kya tum bacchon ko akele sambhal paoge? Aur kya
Pihu Priya ke baigair rahegi?
Ram: Priya bhi jayegi hamare saath.
Priya: Mr Kapoor lekin..
Ram: Priya, do you have to argue in each and every matter. I have made my
decision and you are coming with me and the kids, thats all. We are leaving by
the afternoon flight tomorrow, isliye apni aur bacchon ki packing kar
lena. I have to go to work early morning tomorrow, and I will meet you directly
at the airport.
Priya lowers her head and starts eating her food, and tries hard to control her
tears. After dinner, she retires to her room, she is sitting on the bed, thinking,
on one hand she is happy that she will be spending some time alone with Ram
and the kids, which might help them come close again. But on the other hand
she is afraid that it might give Ram another chance to play with her emotions.
In RaYa room:
Saumya knocks on the door.
Ram: come in
Saumya: kya Bhappa aap bhi na, pyar se bhabhi ko nahi keh sakte the, that
you want her to come along? rula diya na bichari ko.
Ram: Arre tum janti nahi ho use, mein pyar se samjhata, to aur bhi mana kar
deti, islye strictly kaha, so that she won't have a chance to argue.
Next day Ram left early for office. Priya did all the packing for herself and the
kids and she was sitting in her room. She was really tensed about the
upcoming trip as she wasn't sure what she should expect. Saumya came to the
Saumya: Bhabhi aap tayar ho gayi?
She saw Priya's troubled face and
Saumya: Don't worry Bhabhi, everything will be just fine.
Soon Priya and the kids left for the airport. Ram joined them and they were on
their way to Singapore. Ram could sense that Priya was tensed and wanted to
console her but couldn't find the right words to do so. By the time they reach
Singapore, its late evening. All of them check into the hotel.
Pihu: Khush wo dekho arcade hain wahan par, lets ask papa to take us there.
Khush: Papa, we want to go and play games in the arcade
Ram: ok lets go.
All 4 of them go to the arcade. At night, Priya tucks the kids in, in their room
and reads them a bed time story. The kids are tired and so doesn't take them
too long to fall asleep. Ram is watching all this, and is wondering how he
should handle the situation between him and Priya. Priya is aware of Ram's gaze on her, and so she is worried about what is going on in his mind. She walks out of the kids room, shuts the door behind her and walks past Ram. Ram holds on to her hand and pull her towards him, she lands on his chest. He hugs her tightly and closes his eyes. Priya tries to struggle and get away from him, but the more she tries, more he holds her tight. Her head and her heart are telling her 2 different things and she can't figure out whom to listen to. Her heart is telling her to give in and cherish the moment. But her brain is warning her, that she is inviting heart ache by doing so. Her heart is telling her that he really loves her, and so does she. But her head tells her, that though she loves him, she shouldn't be so sure of his feelings. Her heart is quick to remind her of the concern that he had for her on the karvachaut day, but her head reminds her of the torture that he put her thru when he came into her room looking for Pihu. She finally decides to listen to her head, gathers all her strength and breaks free from Ram's embrace. Both look at each other. Tears start flowing freely from her eyes.
Priya: Aap ye kya kar rahe hai. Mein janti hon ke aap mujhse naraj hai aur shayad aap mujhe ab pyar bhi nahi karte. But Mr. Kapoor, please meri emotions se is tarh mat kheliye. I beg of you.
Before Ram can comprehend what Priya just said and could react to it, she runs to their room and locks herself in the bathroom. Ram goes after her, and is about to knock on the bathroom door, but stops himself. He can hear her cry uncontrolably. He lies down on the bed. After some time, Priya comes out of the bathroom, still sobbing but trying to control her tears. She goes to her side of the bed and sleeps with her back towards Ram. She is still crying. Ram goes near her, slides his one hand over her waist and with the other hand turns her, so that she is now lying flat on her back. Priya closes her eyes.
Ram: Priya please open your eyes and look at me. please Priya..
Priya opens her eyes and is about to say something, but Ram puts his finger on her lips.
Ram: Please priya, kuch mat kaho, just hear me out. I know I have been behaving like a jerk for the past couple of months, but Priya I was really angry with you. But believe me Priya, even when I was angry, I never ever stopped loving you. I know I hurt your feelings the other day, when Pihu got sick and also when I came to your room looking for Pihu, but Priya mera yakin mano mein sirf aur sirf tumse pyar karta hon. Tum jab yahan nahi thi mein hamesha ye sochta that ki kash tum meri zindagi mein wapis chali aao, and agar aisa hua, to mein apni sari galtiyan sudharunga aur mein tumhein duniya ki sari khushiyan doonga, and look at me, when I really got this chance, I ended up hurting you even more. I am so sorry Priya.
Tears were rolling down Priya's cheeks all the while and this time Priya, puts her finger on his lips.
Priya: Aap kyun sorry keh rahe hai? Aapki koi galati nahi hai. Aapka gussa hona to banta hai. Galti to meine ki hai. I made the biggest mistake of my life when I went away from you and repeated it by keeping Pihu away from you. Mein aapki aur Pihu ki gunejgar hun. I wish I could undo what I did, but I can't, lekin mera yakeen kijiye, I did it only because I loved you. I wanted you to move on. I went away only because I couldn't bear to see you put your life on hold for me. I am really sorry Ram, I really am. I love you so much. Please forgive me.
She again breaks down and starts crying. Ram holds her in his arms and tries to calm her down.
Ram: Priya, shant ho jao Priya, meine tumhe maaf kar diya hai, mein tumse naaraj nahi hon.
He breaks the hug. Priya still has her eyes closed and tears are still flowing down her cheek.
Ram: Priya dekho meri taraf. Tumne us din kaha tha na, ki can't we forgive and forget? so lets do that. Aaj ke baad hum is baat ko yaad nahi karenge. We will only think about building a nice future for us and our kids. ok?
Priya nods her head affirmatively.
Ram moves his face close to hers and plants a kiss on her cheek. He then moves to the other cheek. On the way to the other cheek, he brushes his lips against Priya's and instantly, Priya draws his lips into a kiss. Ram also kisses her back and soon it turns into a deep and passionate kiss. They break the kiss only beacause they have to inhale. Ram looks into Priya's eyes
Ram: And my sherni is back.
Priya hits lightly on Ram chest. They then make love, for most part of the night
