Pooja : Obviously, only Shaheer will come in your fairytale dreams, right?”

Rhea : “Yes, Maa. Who else will come?”

Pooja : “Rhea, now come out of your fairytale and live in reality. Today you have to go and give an interview, na?”

Rhea recklessly says “Yes, Maa. I will go and get ready. But I have to go to Nainital for giving interview. And I don’t wanna leave you here and go there and do job.”

A woman is sleeping on her couch with the book kept on her face. Just then Supriya comes and sees her. She starts telling “Oh My God, you are sleeping this way?” The girl in her lazy mood answers her “No, Maa. I was just taking a nap.”

Supriya : “Oh! Whatever, now go and wash your face and come. Today you are going to Nainital also, na!

Girl suddenly removes the book from her face and her face is revealed….. Erica. She says “Yes, Maa. I will go and get ready soon.” Supriya worriedly asks her “Erica, I know Shaheer is a generous person, but still do you believe that he loves you?” To which Erica answers “Maa, I know Shaheer very well. He is a big chhupa rustom. He don’t share his feelings this much easily. But you see our destiny is matched. I and Shaheer are going outside for our respective works, but still it’s our destiny plan that we are going to same place.” She tries to assures Supriya.

Act – II : The First Meeting

Scene – 1

Shaheer is sitting at the resort’s café waiting for both the ladies. Soon Rhea comes. Shaheer is delighted to see her. He stands up to welcome her. Rhea gets overwhelmed seeing this gesture. She thinks “See, how much he respects me. These shows the depth of his love.” She walks towards him. Their conversation is as follows ;

Rhea : “Shaheer, How are you? And moreover Congratulations for Your selection in Uttarakhand Cricket Tournament. And where is your Tournament? Is it near to here?”

Shaheer : “Oh My God! Rhea, how much you talk? Calm down, calm down. Wait, let Erica join us.

Rhea asks Shaheer in a confused tone “Who is Erica?”

Shaheer starts to say something but meanwhile, Erica comes. Erica sees them talking and is thinking “Who’s this girl talking with Shaheer?” Just then Shaheer sees her and asks her to come by gestures. Erica walks towards them.

Erica starts by greeting. Erica asks Shaheer “Who’s she, Shaheer?” Rhea also asks the same from her eyes. To which Shaheer replies “Okay, first let me introduce you both to each another. Pointing at Erica, Shaheer says, “Rhea, she’s one of my close friends. We met in college and we hang out often. And Erica, this is Rhea, She’s my childhood best friend. Our mothers are very good friends.” Both Erica and Rhea says the same dialogue which is “Oh!”. They both look at each other but nevertheless the jealousy can be seen in both of their’s eyes.

Erica : “Hi, Rhea.”

Rhea : “Hello, Erica.”

Shaheer : “Please have your seats.”

They all sat on their respective chairs. They both look into each other’s eyes with rivalry and somewhat possessiveness. Shaheer starts conversation by asking them about their orders. Erica says, “I wanna have some hot chocolate”. Whereas Rhea says, “I would like to have Cappuccino.” Shaheer calls the waiter and says him to bring one cappuccino, one hot chocolate and one Cold Coffee. Rhea and Erica are shocked. They both say in same timing “We too need Cold Coffee.” They both stare at each other. Shaheer is surprised and says the waiter to bring 3 cold coffees. Erica and Rhea were actually thinking that Shaheer would order, what they ordered. They have a loads of conversations while drinking coffee. Shaheer says “Lemme go, and pay the bill.” He goes from there. Rhea and Erica stares at each other.

Erica : “So, your name is Rhea, right?”

Rhea : “Do you have hearing problem? That you couldn’t hear what Shaheer had told you my name.”

Erica is stunned by her behavior but soon she replies “See, I don’t have any personal conflict with you. But see, I hate those girls who wander around Shaheer.”

Rhea : “So, what do you mean? Am I wandering around Shaheer or you?

Erica is fuming but hits her back with her savage reply “Shaheer is mine, he is forever mine. No one can snatch him from me. So, it will be better if you understand it at the earliest.

Rhea is shocked by her reply. And says “Oh! Really? You are just his college mate but I am his childhood friend.”

Soon Shaheer comes and both of them stops their argument. Shaheer asks happily “So, it became a close friendship, right? I knew it, girls become friends in only few seconds. I am so glad that you both became understanding and talkative friends to each other.” Erica and Rhea gives Shaheer fierce looks. This goes on.

But I can’t because, I have the practice match today. You are a good friend of her, so please go with her. Okay? Thanks.” He goes.

Your plan got flopped.” “Which plan are you talking about?”, Rhea asks her sarcastically.

Erica : “Oh! Don’t act innocent now. I knew your plan. You thought that you’ll ask Shaheer to come with you and he’ll accompany you?”

Rhea : So? Do you have any problem?

Erica : “See, Shaheer is just mine. He is going to propose me. He is just mine. So please maintain distance from him.”

    Loved the sweet OS from you on this new year. To be fair, I was just smiling in the whole OS. Especially I liked when Erica and Rhea are at loggerheads for Shaheer. Their leg fight and ordering cold coffee is extremely hilarious. Their monologues are again funny. Loved the introduction scene and surprised to Supriya as Erica’s mummy. Finally at the end game, I guessed he won’t propose to both and he would propose any of his other costars, but never expected he would propose his real wife in offscreen. Erica and Rhea reactions are worth watching. The pics were perfect. Loved the climax where Rhea and Erica become buddies. 🥰🥰🥰

    1. Zingo

      Thanks a lot, Jasminerahul. Surprised to see your comment. Glad that you loved this os. Actually, I wanted Rhea to be more career-oriented in this os, thus I made her a successful news editor. I think she is quite young than Erica. By the way I had a option that I could pair her with Avinesh Rekhi, but I dropped that idea due to this reason only. Thank you so much for commenting🙂

    2. Jasminerahul

      it’s ok.i just asked as rhea was mad 4 shaheer.now also she doesn’nt have anyone

  4. Radhakrishn

    The fights of the lady was funny. Feeling happy for Shaheer. As Jasminerahul said I too wish Rhea gets a partner. Btw, is this the end??

    1. Zingo

      Thank You, Radhakrishn. I am happy that you read and loved this os. As I said, I wanted Rhea Sharma to be first successful in her professional life, thus didn’t made any partner for her. Yeah! It was a short story about how two girls desire for prince charming Shaheer, but as destiny planned he is for Ruchikaa. Thus this is the end. Thank You😍
