As Akash and Manya's bodies slowly swayed to the music, Manya looked at him.
M: Ek baat poochon?
M: Isn't it funny how we landed from being the worse enemies to-
A: To what?
Akash laughed and nodded.
A: Hmm...hey, ab main ek baat poochoon?
A: Kya tumne kabhi kisi se pyar kiya hai?
Soft PKEK music began to play as Manya raised her eyes to meet his. He stared into hers, his eyebrows raised.
A: Itna mushkil sawaal bhi nahin hai.
Manya rolled her eyes.
M: Noo. I never loved someone.
Akash nodded his head.
M: Aur tum?
A: Main kya?
M: Kya tumne kabhi kisi se pyar kiya hai?
He laughed, looking up.
A: No. Flirt, yes, lakein pyar...
Manya shrugged her eyebrows at him.
A: Koi mili nahin thi.
Manya smiled teasingly.
M: Mili nahin thi
Akash looked at her, realizing what he had said. He licked his lips.
M: Oh? So ab mil gayee?
She laughed, but he stared at her intently and whispered,
A: I think so.
Manya stopped laughing and looked at him, surprised. He grinned naughtily again.
M: Acha? Tho kya woh jaanti hai?
A: Hrm. You know the song, Ladki Kyun from Hum Tum?
A: Tho bas. Woh line hai na, "Pyar ussai bhi hai magar shuruaat tumhi se chahe..."
Manya rolled her eyes.
M: Not truuee! Shiyad woh sharma rahi hogi. Shy, you know? Or maybe woh tumhare pyar per abhi yakeen na kerti ho...
Akash suddenly stopped swaying and bent close to her, making her step back quickly.
A: Tho kaise yakeen dhilaoon ussai?
M: How should I know? Maybe you should-tell her...
Akash smiled and stood straight again.
A: Mera aandaz alag hai.
A: Jise main pyar karunga, ussai maana hoga that she also loves me.
M: Um, I think I have to go right now-
M: Uh, yeah..
As Manya began to walk out, he called her.
A: Aye, Ms. Attitude!
He grinned again.
A: Kya tumhe abhi tak koi nahin mila?
Manya pursed her lips and smiled mockingly.
M: Mila nahin tha
Laughing, she raced out of the party. Akash stared after her and laughed to himself.
Manya sat on her swing, dressed in a cute black little kurti and churidaar pajama. Her hair flew behind her in the wind as she played with a chain around her neck.
As she looked up, she suddenly saw Akash wave to her.
She stopped as he suddenly faded away.
M: Manya, pagal ho gayee hai tu!
She sat straight on the swing restlessly. She swung the swing, thinking of him.
M: Why am I thinking about him?
The wind blew as Manya looked up at the moon, smiling as Akash's face came into view.
Akash stared up at the same moon, sitting in his backyard, sighing. Manya's face kept flashing into his eyes, making him smile.
The flashback of him pulling her into his car played in his mind and he laughed.
A: Damn. Yeh pehli ladki hai jiske baare mein main itna soch raha hoon...
Om entered his house and sat down next to him.
Om: Aur kyun soch raha hai?
Akash looked up, startled.
Om: Manya ke baare mein tu itna kyun soch raha hai?
A: Tu Roopa ke baare mein nahin sochta?
Om: Not like you do. I just want to flirt with her. Jaise tu har ladki se kerta hai. But lately, Akash..
Om: Chod na, yaar.
A: No, tell me!
Om looked at him.
Om: Are you in love with Manya?
Akash stared at Om. He frowned and faced the sky again.
Om: See? Just forget it, maine tho aise hi-
A: I don't know.
Akash looked at him.
A: The answer to your question is, I don't know...
Om stared at him and then burst out laughing.
Om: Akash, you've lost it. Jai Shree ki student...and you...
Laughing, he walked off. Akash shook his head. As he brought it back up, he suddenly saw Manya's head hovered over him. She grinned at him.
M: Ho gaya hai tujhko tho pyar sajna...lakh kerle tu inkaar sajna...
As her image suddenly faded, Akash jumped up. He laughed. He continued singing.
A: Hai yeh pyar sajna...lalalalaaaa!
Manya saw Karan pass her in the hallway, his head bandaged. Manya smirked as she walked by him. He stopped angrily.
K: You got something to say?
Manya rolled her eyes.
M: To you? Absolutely not.
Karan glared at her.
K: Watch it, Manya. Aaj yahan tumhara protector nahin hai!
M: Tho kya karlo ge tum? Dho daffa maar kha ker samaj nahin aya?
Karan raised his finger in her face.
K: Just watch, Manya.
M: I am, Karan.
She spun on her heel and walked out of the building, Karan glaring after her.
M: Stupid idiot!
As she drove away, a sudden desire for coffee arose within her. She stopped at a cafe and entered, only to find Akash seated.
M: Tum yahan?
A: Manya! Hi!
A: Bas, college se aate aate coffee per dhil agaya.
M: ME TOO!
A: Sit. Waiter!
As Manya ordered a coffee, Akash looked at her.
A: Uh, acha, yeh bathao...tum shaadi kise karogi?
A: Shaadi kise karogi?
M: Umm...jise main pyar kerti hoon...
A: Aurr woh hai-?
Manya blushed. He bent closer to her.
A: Koi hai kya jo tumhe raatoon mein satata ho? Jo tumhare khwaboon mein aata ho?
Manya swallowed her spit.
W: Coffee, ma'am!
Manya took the cup of coffee, trying to avoid Akash's question. She quickly sipped it.
The burning coffee burned her lip.
He held her softly, looking at her mouth. Manya stared at him.
The music of PKEK began to play as he looked up at her. He sat back in his seat, clearing his throat.
A: Are you okay?
Manya looked at him.
M: Acha, tho tumne oos ladki ko bataya that you love her?
Akash raised his eyes.
A: No. Lakein...
M: Lakein kya?
A: Soch raha hoon batha hi dhoon...
