Mauli thinks HE really miss you Nandini.
Mauli freshen up and gets out of the washroom and sees kunal in confusion about something
Mauli: Dont worry, I will sleep on the couch.
Kunal: Its okay . I will sleep on the couch you can use the cot
Mauli: No way. Just sleep as if I dont exist. Go sleep on the bed and I am okay with the couch . After all I am a doctor and I am adpated to all the situations.
Kunal: Fine then. Before that, we should plan something.
Mauli: plan what?
Mauli: I didnt get it.
Kunal: I mean we should be husband and wife before mamma.
Mauli: kunal we are… There is no need of any plan. Mamma knows you very well and ofcourse any plan would mess up everything. We are gonna behave normal.
Kunal: you are right.
Mauli: so good night.
Kunal: Good night.
Mauli sleeps on the couch. Kunal stares at her for a while and then reminds himself of nandini. He sleeps
Mauli wakes up and finds kunal not on the bed. She thinks Oh my goodness. Its already time. I should take bath fast. She hurriedly takes her clothes and rushes to the washroom. Coincidentally kunal opens the washroom from inside at the sametime. Naira falls upon kunal and all her clothes fells on them. They share an eyelock.
They both realizes and gets up.
Mauli: I am sorry.
Kunal: Why are you in so hurry?
Mauli: I maynot be a wife for you but I am a daughter in law for radhika aunty.
Kunal: was that a backhanded taunt?
Mauli: if you think so
Mauli freshen up and comes downstairs.
She finds mamma very angry.
She thinks I messed up the first day.
Mauli: Mamma I am really sorry. I wont repeat it ever after. Sorry. I know I am late.I will wake up early from today.
Radhika and kunal bursts into laughter.
Radhika: what do you think of me ? I am not a devil. Calm down.
Kunal told me you were so worried that you woke up late. Dont worry. There is nothing for you to do here. Got it? I didnt bring you here to do work.
Mauli stares kunal and says slowly: I will take revenge for this. Wait and watch.
Kunal: I love challenges.
Kunal: its time for me to leave for office . Let me go get ready.
Kunal leaves to room.
Radhika: Thanks mauli
Mauli: Why mamma?
Radhika: I havent seen kunal smiling properly since two years. Today I have seen it.
Radhika: Are you not going to hospital today?
Mauli: can I?

Kunal gets shocked seeing her in action.
Mauli to the man : There’s a hospital nearby. Go there and when they ask you what happened. Tell them Dr. Mauli bet you. Then you would get special treatment. ….. dont you feel ashamed of yourself? Bug off.

Mauli: My parents…. I love them very much. Like you love your mother . Kunal, my mother is suffering from cancer and that too she is in the 4th stage. Even after knowing this she was just worried for me. I was always not into love . I used to say that love was not my thing and used to reject every marriage proposals. But when I got to know that she is suffering from cancer . I thought marrying someone would be the least I can do for her. you know your mamma and my mamma were childhood friends. She was happy when radhika aunty proposed this.she was super excited and pappa too. Why should I say no to their happiness? I love them the most in this whole world.
Kunal: I didnt knew aunty was suffering from cancer.
Mauli: Radhika aunty knew it. Thats why she proposed this. Anyway, I found them happy for me. Thats more than enough for me.
Kunal: why didnt you say this to me ?
Mauli: it would not change anything between us kunal. I decided to not to say this but then I thought you should know it.
Kunal: I honestly thought you were after my money before I saw you. Then when I saw you for the first time. I could not digest that you are after money. Now I know the truth.
Mauli: kunal, there is something huge than money which you cannot buy with money.
Kunal: love, Nandini always used to say this.
