When they arrive she instruct him on how to do it, she caught one easily, but ashok was once again struggling to catch one. Kaurvaki told him he has to concentrate.
Ashok waited for a fish to swim by, when it was near he duck his hand and caught it. He turn to show Kaurvaki, but the fish slip out of his hand. Ashok surprise tried to catch another, but unfortunately it kept slipping away. Kaurvaki while watching wasn’t surprise, she always knew ashok was competitive and determine, but seeing him now just shows how stubborn he is.
” theirs no challenge I.. ashok can’t handle ” he says turning around to show the fish he finally caught. Kaurvaki congratulate him. Ashok walk towards her when he lost his balance. He fell in the water causing the fish to jump back in. Kaurvaki laughs, she walk to him and give her hand. Ashok looks at at hand before pulling her down surprising her.

Meanwhile, bindu was pampering charu, and charu was loving every second of it. Bindu told charu that he would like her to stay in his room. She was so excited. While she pack her things, Bindu came up with a plan. That night while they were asleep, Bindu woke up. He silently made his way to Helen asking if she knows which part of the room her powers lies. Helen says ” in the darkness, you will find a cloth tied. Their you shall find the source of her power.”
Bindu confuse says ” that doesn’t help me Helen. I need More then that”
” you are a smart king Bindu, I’m sure you will figure it out”
And so , with little information Bindu makes his way to charu room. It was indeed dark. He search for what he was looking for, but saw nothing. He check her closet, bathroom, and even bed, but he couldn’t find any cloth. He was about to give up when he fell on something. Confuse he touched the cloth to see a black rock. It was just a normal rock, but Bindu knew it could be more.
He grabs it and took it outside. Their he smashes it to pieces. While this was happening charu woke up screaming. She got up and search around, following where the rock was last seen. When she reached the spot, she saw Bindu turning to leave. He stop when he sees charu. ” look what you have done ” she screams holding his shoulder.
Bindu says ” I did it for my family protection”
Charu shook her head in anger, ” you destroyed every chance of us being a happy family”
Bindu told her it would never had work since she was to greedy for the thrown..charu devastated says ” all what you told e, was it all a lie?”
” I’m sorry..charu”
Charu now crying says ” you will pay for what you have done, Bindu. Do you think destroying that would make me less a threat. No…you will pay for the disrespect you have caused my love, mark my words” she says turning now to leave.
Bindu stops her before telling her, her greedyness and selfishness will cause her own death. If not by him, but instead the child she tries so hard to make king. Charu scoff before walking off.
Back to the present, ashok could see the village getting closer. He just hopes his mom was alright. Elsewhere, Kaurvaki woke up to see ashok no where, ” that’s right he left” , she got up and clean up before taking a bath. When done, she got up to leave, when she spotted a cloth wrapped. Curious… she walk to it and read the letter.

Kaurvaki smile before opening it. She gasp when she saw a beautiful saree and jeweler’s. She mentally thanks ashok before putting it on. She thought of many things ashok would say to her when he sees her in the outfit. She smile with happyness, all while saying ” I won’t take this off, until ashok sees me” she says
