Preeta walks slowly towards Tanya recalling Karan’s guilty face, the emotion buried under his heart from years. She looks at Tanya with weird expression.
“What are you looking asks Preeta
Preeta : I am seeing the girl who is ruling on somebody’s heart even after death.
Tanya looks at Sameer in disbelief but also knows she has no choice left now.
Preeta : why? Tanya, you are hiding from everybody when you know
“Because I promise my mom I would never meet the Luthra family in my whole life finally reveals her truth
Preeta : what?
Tanya : you and I know both know whatever happened was nobody’s fault but my mom does not think like that, she holds Luthra family responsible for my condition years ago,
Preeta : why didn’t you tell her, it was just an accident
Sameer : that was not an accident, that Kareena aunty didn’t even care about humanity
“What asks shocked Preeta
Tanya : Kareena aunty was already not happy with the importance I got, she wanted to hold that power of being daughter of Luthra family
Preeta : how do you know that
“After that incidence, I saw her bribing to the guy who tampered the belt of Pinky on the camping Sameer reveals
Preeta : I don’t believe she can stoop so low really
Tanya : I could have told truth to them but then a daughter’s image would tarnish in front of her own family
Sameer : we both are raised by foster families but still somewhere our real identity is orphan, and nobody can change that fact
Tanya : even when dad had partnership with Rishab, mom did not liked that and both had arguments again, then this Prithvi messed up everything
Preeta gets in dilemma again of telling truth to the only person she started loving and the trust he holds on to her. On the other side is the girl who risked her life to save both families from evil.
Tanya : I request you please let things get going it is right now or else many relation will be ruined
Preeta : but I cannot hide this from Karan
“You will have to Preeta, consider me selfish but this is my request to you begs in front of her
Preeta melts down and promises to not reveal the identity of pinky at any cost.
Tanya : thank you
Sameer : okay now I will take leave from here, Preeta do you want me to drop you anywhere
Preeta : thats okay, I will manage you go
“Bye waves to both
Both girls have awkward situation but Tanya makes her feel normal.
“Come sit, I will get something for you is about to get up but stopped
Preeta: , don’t be so formal
Tanya : sorry actually, I know I asked something from you I should not have
Preeta : its okay, lets talk something else, you know when Karan told me about you first time I was so curious but he didn’t tell me everything, and also you injured his leg yesterday
Tanya : because that cricketer is crazy, you know about him more than me
Preeta : can I ask you something if you don’t mind
Tanya : yea sure
Preeta : where is your mom?
“In London, you know I have not talked with her from few months talks while pouring water in glass
Preeta : you should talk with her, after all she is your mom
Tanya : I was planning to visit her soon at home, I miss my hometown
“You are leaving so soon, I did not even get chance to befriend you properly pouts like child
Tanya : I am not leaving right now okay, chill but for that you will have to bear my tantrums think again
Preeta : I am ready, first thing we have to go for shopping with Kritika for her mehndi ceremony
Tanya : really? I didn’t knew about her haldi and mehndi
Preeta : now you know, get ready I am going home, come home to pick me up

Preeta feels uneasy about that but leaves for her home. Later girls Preeta, Shrishti, Kritika and Tanya goes for shopping in mall.
Shrishti : wow, look at this necklace, Kritika this is so beautiful I am sure your would be husband will remained stunned
Preeta tries a red maxi dress and looks herself in mirror. Shrishti urges her to purchase dress as she will look beautiful.
Kritika : how is this dress (tries her ceremony outfit)
Tanya : you look gorgeous but only one thing is missing
Kritika : what?
“That smile every bride has on her face pulls her cheek
Kritika : thank you, by the way you never told us do you have any boyfriend
The smile disappears in a second from Tanya’s face but Kritika apologizes.
Kritika : I am sorry, I didn’t mean to ask you like that
Tanya : thats okay, I don’t have anybody
Shrishti : who knows, you might find somebody in india
Tanya ; maybe but its time for career right now and I am not rushing
Preeta calls Karan but he does not respond to her calls.
While going back home a goon teases Kritika which does not go well with Tanya and Shrishti who mess with them.
“What were you saying Shrishti removes her sandals
Tanya : and you were feeling very hot, now watch how cold this girls are (starts beating him with her sandal)
Preeta grabs stick and also joins them. The goon run away from there as fast as they can.

“Hi softly greets him
Karan : hi, you here?
“I came to give you this and thank you for yesterday hands him wallet

Tanya : well, I left my law for sometime, dad’s business is also my responsibility
Karan : you know you should never leave your desire incomplete, whole life it will haunt you, who knows one day you might need that, this is the locker room
“You know Rishab always say, one that does not respect its profession cannot achieve anything takes his stuff out from the locker
Tanya notices the locket on his pocket and asks about that.
“This is not ordinary locket, very special memory for me, somebody’s good wishes are in this, my lucky charm wears in neck
Tanya is overwhelmed to see Karan’s emotion to her given gift but also is disheartened of not telling the truth bound by the promise.
Karan : where are you lost, lets go come
One of the player comes there to call Karan for practice.
“This is Rohan, my buddy, introduces him to Tanya
“Hello, nice to meet you shakes hand
Rohan : Karan, hurry up coach is calling you on field
Karan : two minutes, I will be there

“Duffer, from today consider me your friend and I promise I won’t give you chance for complaint forwards his hand
Tanya hesitantly puts her hand on his to forward their friendship.
Karan : okay now I will go before coach kick me out of here, bye buddy (leaves)
Tanya watches his practice match but is more happy how he is the same Karan who played games with so much passion and dedication.
