Laksh eyes welled with tears.
Laksh: no. first I don’t know he is rich. If I know, I will never spoke with him.
Arjun: don’t lie Lakshyadev. I know that middle class peoples mindset.
Arjun holds Laksh hands tighter.
Laksh: bhai, it’s paining.
Rajat(yells): Arjun! what the hell are you doing?
Arjun and Raksh are shocked by seeing Rajat’s anger. Rajat sees unbalanced Laksh.
Rajat goes to Laksh and supports him.
Rajat: what you did with him?
Arjun: we are trying to prove his original character.
Rajat: I ask what you did with him.
Raksh: we drugged him to get the truth.
Afterthat, Raksh feels his cheeks are burning.
Rajat: I never think that you guys can go this much low.
Raksh: are you slapped me for the sake of this middle class witch.
Rajat: I warn you last time Raksh, if you badmouth about him, you will regret for this.
Raksh: if I do, what will you do?
Rajat holds Raksh shirt collars and Raksh holds Rajat’s shirt collars.
Arjun tries to separate them.
Laksh(with difficulty): Raj bhai! don’t fight with your friend for the sake of me.
Laksh falls down because he can’t stand due to drug.
Rajat goes to Laksh and take him in his shoulder, leaves the pub.
Sanskar(to him): how much time I want to wait in this car? No.. I will go..
Sanskar tries to open the door but he can’t because Rajat locked the doors.
Rajat comes with half conscious Laksh.
Sanskar bangs the mirror but the strength is so low, it is not enough to break the mirror.
Rajat comes to his car and opens the door, makes sit Laksh beside Sanskar.
Raksh words still rings in Laksh’s mind.
Sanskar hugs Laksh.” I scared Laksh , why are you so late? . Raj, where is my chocolate?”
Rajat sits in driver seat and understands Laksh’s condition, decides to divert him.
Rajat: you can ask your chocolate from your friend.
Sanskar: Laku, where is my chocolate?(shakes Laksh)
Drug starts his effect on Laksh.
Laksh: I don’t know Sansku. Wait! What you say chocolate? Raj bhai, I also want chocolate.

Sanlak: we want chocolate! We want chocolate!
Rajat(hide smile): if you both silent, I will give chocolate to you.
Sanskar: no. already you fooled me.
Laksh: I trust you bhai. Sansku, bhai never fool us.
Sanskar sees the chain in Laksh’s neck and touches it.
Sanskar: Laku, this chain is beautiful.
(Laksh stares the chain lovingly)
Laksh: it’s my appa, Sansku.
Laksh(smiles): hmm! But he left me alone in the world. This is his chain. He gave me when he was in his dead bed.
Rajat observes the pain because he knows that pain how much cunning.
Laksh(stares outside): he left me alone. But I can’t take it. I curse me when I see my appa is lying in the pool if blood. I immersed myself in various activities to forgot this pain. I always search technologies in net, I learned music and drawing. I made myself as a tech freak. But I can’t forgot that pain of losing my appa in front of my eyes. So I started imagine that this chain is my papa. My papa is always with me in the form of chain. If I help anyone, my appa will be happy. I started to help everyone as my level. I trust that soul is deathless. My papa is with me always.
Laksh starts to cry badly.” My papa is always with me”

I searched him whenever my school conducts PTA meeting. But he never comes. To get his attention, I will become naughty. But he sent me boarding school. He didn’t love me. he didn’t love me.

Rajat takes Laksh to the room where Sanskar lays in bed. Rajat wipes the chocolate in both their face and removes their shoes. Rajat is also slept there in couch to take care of them.
Arjun and Raksh are drunk heavily. Both are unsteady.
Raksh: for the sake of that middle class moron, Rajat slapped me.
Arjun: he broke our group, Raksh. First he snatched Sanskar then Rajat.
Raksh: I scared Arjun. I don’t want to see Sanskar and Rajat in pain which I am going through is these years. That betrayal..

The next day morning,
Sun rays fall on the face of three young men.

Rajat smiles and goes to kitchen.
Sanskar wakes up first and sees Laksh who is sleeping calmly with a smiling face.
Sanskar holds his head because of hang over.
Rajat:Sanskar, have it. you will feel better.
Sanskar takes Lemonade and drink it in one go.
Sanskar: what happened yesterday Rajat? Why I am here in your house?
Rajat(points Laksh): we will speak Later.
Sanskar and Rajat goes to hall and Rajat tells everything what happened except their blabbering.
Sanskar: its my mistake Rajat. They take advantage of my silence. I will never except they will go this much.
Swara is waIting for Laksh.
Why he is not coming today? He will come everyday. But why didn’t he come today. I remember when I saw first time. He was offering tea to that old couples and talk with them politely. Then Suddenly, that street dog starts to chase him. when I tried to help him , he saved that dog from me. when he said Laksh and Lucky, I fall on his innocence. He is so pure at his heart. by this time, he didn’t tried to flirt with me. he respects other feelings. My thoughts of chain is cut by hearing a bark sound. I turned with excitement to see him. but it’s some other one.
I am madly searching him in park. Even I asked that old couples whom he offers a tea. They also searching him. Still why I am restless. If he is ill, or he met any accident. No ganapathi papa, he should be alright. I am tensed about his safety, I know he even didn’t remember me. but still I am worried for him. I check my time it shows 7:30. I have to go. But my heart doesn’t accept it without seeing him.
Swara left the park half heartedly.
On other hand,
Laksh wakes up and tries to stand from the bed. But his head twirls and he falls down. By hearing the sound, Rajat and Sanskar comes inside. Sanskar takes Laksh in his hands and puts in bed.
Rajat: I think still he feel dizzy.
Sanskar: I never think my guys do this.
Rajat: take care of him. I will come with Lemonade.
After few minutes, Rajat comes with Lemonade and made Laksh drink.
Laksh starts to open his eyes and sees Sanskar.
Sanskar: you will be alright Laku.
Sanskar: your nick name. didn’t you like it?
Laksh: I like it very much. I feel Sleepy.
Sanskar: ok. you continue your sleep.
Laksh starts to sleep again.
Sanskar goes to hall for helping Rajat for cooking. Rajat house is 3bhk house. It’s enough for him and he lives separately from his brother.
A hour rolled,
“why you select Sanskar as your friend because he is rich?” I wake up with jerk. These words are rolled in my mind. am I behind Sanskar for his money.
I don’t know why my eyes sheds tears. Yes this world always tell me like that. Because I am belong to middle class. I observe Sanskar comes inside.
“Laku…”Sanskar called me. I sense the worry about me . “
are you thinking that I am become your friend for your money?” I asked him with difficulty by nodding my head down.
I don’t know why I asked this question. But the reality is I asked the question. I feel my cheeks are burning. But I didn’t feel any pain. I feel different happy , joyness that my sansku trust me. he didn’t think me like that.
“ give a tight slap behalf of me” Raj bhai told Sanskar.
no. I can’t take any other slap. I holded my both cheeks and looked at Sansku. His eyes express so much of pain.
“ how can you think me like that, Laku” his voice choked at the end. He hugged me tightly and I hugged him even more. After a minute , we both broke hug. He sees my eyes more deeper that he is searching anything. We both sheds tears and silence occupies between us. But we spoken so many things by the language of heart which Words never describe.
Precap: Laksh supports Arjun and Raksh.
