A: I will have an iced tea.
Sonal: I will have a juice.
A: Mehak you..?
S: Mehak & I will have coffee.
A: oh! Ok. So that’s it…
He turns to the waiter.
A: Ok thank you.
Waiter leaves from there.
A: so Mehak you are a coffee fan right??
Mehak lightly smiles and nodded her head.
S: A big fan I will say. Mehak can’t leave without her coffee. Coffee is like medicine for her. Head ache, have a coffee. Mood is not good have a coffee; if she doesn’t sleep well at night then again have coffee.
Mehak shockingly looks at Shaurya.
A: Wow!! Really Mehak??
Mehak gives him a faint artificial smile…
A: But I am sorry to tell. I don’t like coffee.
S: Oh! No!! How will it go….?
S: Mehak can’t live without her coffee. And you can’t live with it… I think you should find someone with similar likes as yours…
Everyone shockingly looks at Shaurya…
S: What!! I was just kidding…
Shaurya laughs. Ajay joins him too.
A: But what to do yaar, pyar hogayi…
Ajay looks Mehak emotionally. Shaurya glares at Mehak. Mehak was not able to face anyone. She gives a fake smile.
They left the place after some time.
A: I will drop Mehak to her home.
M: no it’s ok I can go with Sonal.
A: I think we talk while that time.
Sonal: that’s a good idea. You will get some time alone to get to know about each other.
Mehak and Ajay leave together.
A: tell me about yourself Mehak.
A: yes I know your some details. Your name, your job etc. But I don’t know that you like coffee. So, I want to know about such things.
M: it’s not that important.
A: no. it’s not important to know. But I want to know such things because I don’t like someone else telling me what you like and what you don’t.
Ajay says in a strange way. Mehak looked at his face. He was looking at the road and don’t say anything for some time.
A; Yes..? I am sorry. I will get lost in my thoughts while driving. Soo what were you saying??
A: nothing!! Ok…
They drove in silence. They reach near Mehak’s house. Mehak get down from the car.
M: thank you.
A: So you are not calling me to your home?
M: I am sorry..
A: it’s ok. And I am the would be son-in-law of the house, so it’s not good to come and go frequently.
M: Ok.then Bye..
A: Ok. But don’t say bye. We will not say bye to each other from now onwards. Ok?
Mehak nodded and leaves.
