Abhimanyu, Rajveer, Naina, Navin and Gunny were presently sitting in the study and were waiting for Major General R.S. Gaur to come, for Abhimanyu had informed them that he was in Barmer already and wished to meet all of them immediately.
Sherry was sitting in her room, removing the clothes she had just purchased and was hanging them in her closet when she heard a knock on the door. Opening the door, she found Huda standing outside on the landing.
"Gulabo… woh mujhe tumse kuch poochna tha…"
"Kya hai? I'm busy now…"
"Dekh yaar gulabo, Huda ka dil mat dukha… mere saath chal."
"Arre chalo toh sahi… yaar yeh aaj kal ki janani bhi…"
"Wait… I'm coming."
Sherry goes to her room, places the clothes on her bed and leaves the room with Huda, who takes her outside the palace to one of the cars waiting for them.
"Huda… hum kaha jaa rahe hai?" Sherry asks him.
"Arre, tere bhaai aur naina ki shaadi ho rahi hai…"
"Toh meri pyaari gulabo, unke shaadi ke liye sab log ek vaddi cheez bhool gaye…"
"Shaadi ki cards…"
"What? You mean ki shaadi ke cards abhi tak bane nahi hai…?" Sherry asked looking surprised.
"Haan… abhi tak toh unhone decide hi nahi kiya hai…"
"Par roka toh issi hafte hone waala hai… aur uske teen din baad saare wedding functions shuru ho jaayenge, itni jaldi hum cards kaise banayenge?"
"Oh-ho, isliye toh Huda tumhe saath lekar jaa raha hai, shaadi ki cards choose karne… Rajveer sir aur Naina ko dikhayenge aur unhe ready karne bhej denge… aur waise bhi roka ke liye toh sirf hum sab honge… tension mat le… ab chalo…"
"Theek hai, let's go."
And so, Huda and Sherry leave the palace to go and select a few cards for Rajveer and Naina to choose from. As their car leaves the palace gates, another car comes inside; Major General Gaur's jeep. M.G Gaur was greeted by Kakasa who led him inside the study where everyone was waiting for him. Aalekh had told Ali to go over to the 'Riyasat' and had come downstairs for the meeting.
In the study, everyone was seated in a circle and they were listening to what Major General Gaur had learned earlier this morning. Gunny, who had no idea of their mission, was briefed about it before the meeting began. He was told about the chip-bug located in the base of the terroists in Ambala, the planning of the minister's assassination, and how it was just a minor part of a major plan.
"Right… ab aaj ki meeting ka khaas baat; kal raat main Barmer Army headquarters pahuncha aur wahan par mujhe un terrorist's ki baatein sunne ke liye orders diya…" M.G Gaur said.
"Par sir, un terrorist's ki baatein Ambala se yahan Barmer mein kaise…?" Naina asked.
"Good question Lt. Singh, darasal baat yeh hai ki Ambala ke headquarters mein ek naya technological device aaya tha jisse kissi bhi conversation ko kahin par suna jaa sakta hai… uss device mein ek chip hai jo Major Rajveer ke ghar mein lage huye bug se attached hai… aur device ko kisi bhi computer mein fit karke saari baatein sunayi deti hai…"
"Toh sir, kya aapko un terrorist's ke baaton se kuch pata chala?" Navin asked.
"Yes, as a matter of fact, kuch hi ghanto pehle maine ek conversation ko follow kar raha tha aur itne dino baad unhone ek galti kar li; humein ab terrorist's ke main boss ka naam pata hai…" M.G Gaur said.
"Kya naam?" Aalekh asked.
"Eagle… uss boss ka naam Eagle hai. Kaun hai yeh eagle? Kya woh army mein hai? Kya ek minister hai? Kuch pata nahi hai abhi tak… sirf uska naam hai humaare paas. Maine Brigadier Chandok ko yeh information di hai aur woh saare army records ko check kar rahe hai…"
The moment everyone heard the name of the boss; Eagle, they felt a weird sensation; the very name of this boss seemed to curdle their blood. Gunny was shocked when he heard the name of the boss; it seemed familiar to him somehow, the name was heard of before.
"Toh sir, humaare orders kya hai?" Rajveer asked.
