Here it goes….
On the way back to hotel, Sonal was talking to Mehak. But Mehak was not listening to anything. Everything else seems vague to her. Just some faint voices. Which fail to catch her attention. Her mind was replaying what happened in the corridor. She even don’t know when she reach the hotel. That night her sleep was disturbed by beautiful dreams.
Next morning everyone was busy packing their bags. They were leaving from Mumbai. Trip back to Delhi was dull. Everyone was missing Mumbai and fest. Mehak doubted what was she missing…
They reach the college. Ravi and Jeevan were waiting for Mehak.
Ravi: Mehak puthar, how was your trip. Did you do well in everything?
M: haan chacha. Everything was fine.
Mehak was looking for Shaurya..
Jeevan: who are you looking Mehak? Did you miss something?
M: chacha, Sonal. I will see sonal and come. Just 2 minutes.
J: ok.. come fast.
Mehak look for Shaurya. Shaurya was with other friends. Mehak couldn’t say bye to Shaurya.
They reach back home. Everyone was asking her about her trip. Her phone rings.

Mehak excuses herself from others and pick the call.
S: hai. You reach home?
M: yaa. I am sorry I couldn’t say bye to you..
