Seeing Arnavv smiling, Prince widened his eyes.
Prince: Where did go you, Dude? You got vanished all of a sudden?
Arnavv: Didn’t you ask about a girl?
Arnavv: Just went to propose her.
Prince: Whaaaaat! Propose? That’s why you didn’t say anything when I asked about her?
Arnavv nodded yes folding his lips.
Prince: You should have told me if you love her.
Arnavv smiled at him.
Prince: Did she accept?
Arnavv: She will…
Prince: How do you know? Does she love you?
Prince: Then? What are you going to do?
Arnavv nodded NO.
Prince: Are you going to roam behind her? if yes… I have a lot of ideas…
Arnavv(rolling his eyes): Keep your Romeo type ideas with you. She is not that kind.
Prince: All the girls are the same type when it comes to love. They like Romeos than a gentlemen.
Arnavv: I will surely take your help if needed. Now… let me concentrate on work.
Arnavv: Tell me, could you trace the killer?
Prince: it’s challenging me yaar… I couldn’t trace his location. I think he is using a satellite phone.
Arnavv: Really? Isn’t it costly?
Prince: yes, if we buy… but not if we assemble.
Arnavv: Could it be assembled?
Prince: School children are making matchbox size rockets for their science project these days buddy…
Prince: Yeah… such talents are used in the wrong route.
Arnavv: Can’t we trace him in any way?
Prince: Maybe, with the help of a high-frequency tracking device…
Arnavv nodded yes.
Kushi’s mind was wavering in a storm. How easily he asked for Marriage? Is he insane? Does he think marriage is a simple thing? Of course, Marriage is an unwritten protection agreement. But it shouldn’t be a scale of a mere CASE. Did he ask her just to give her protection or it was an excuse? It’s not possible for him to ask all the victims the same but why only she? She bit her nail. At one point he was right. He will be the best Phupha to Pooja. In this insecure world, she couldn’t trust anyone though. Everyone is selfish here. She can’t trust if her husband will treat Pooja in the way Arnavv does. What confusion is this….?
She looked at Pooja who is eating Kushi’s handmade food, making face.
Pooja: Bua… tomorrow, noodles is enough for me…
Kushi sighed. Cooking is the hardest task in the world. How easily she had teased her Bhabi’s food? She should have learnt cooking from her Bhabi. But she never allowed Kushi to do any work in the kitchen. How sweet her Bhabi was… she treated Kushi like her own sister. It’s very hard to get a good company from a sister-in-law. Kushi was lucky in that but her brother Ankat didn’t value Anisha. How deeply Anisha loved Ankat? How happy they were… because of Ankat’s lusty mind, their family got demolished. Why woman like Kalpana do not understand that they are destroying someone’s life? Just because they didn’t get a loving husband, how could they snatch someone’s husband? Unexpectedly, Kalpana eventually got her punishment. But who is doing these murders? Who is he? Why he is doing this? What he wants? What he is going to get doing these? What he will do if he gets to know about Arnavv’s proposal? Will he do another attempt to threaten her like a truck incident? Will Arnavv save her from him?
Kushi felt a tug in her shawl. She saw Pooja pulling her shawl.
Pooja: Bua, take me to the park.
Kushi: We will go tomorrow.
Pooja: No… now…
Kushi(sighing): Let’s go…
They reached the part and Pooja occupied the swing. Kushi was watching her, sitting on the cement bench. She felt relaxing when the evening breeze caressed her face pleasantly. Arnavv and Prince were going out as Prince nagged Arnavv to accompany him. Arnavv’s legs slowed down, seeing his girl in the park. Kushi was sitting, facing her back to him. Prince who was talking with Arnavv didn’t get any reply. He turned around and saw him gazing at the Park. He tapped on Arnavv’s shoulder.
Prince: This is not fair…
Prince: You just proposed a girl and seeing another one?
Arnavv: She is the girl.
Prince: You mean Bhabi…?
Arnavv liked his decency in calling Kushi as Bhabi. He nodded YES.
Prince: Let’s play…
Arnavv: What? Don’t…
Prince: I will call your name, if she turns, she will say YES to your proposal. What say?
Arnavv: I don’t have such a childish belief.
Prince: I have… you go and start the bike.
Arnavv rolled his eyes and went to his bike. Though he said he doesn’t have faith his heart has been beating fast on the “result”.
Prince shouted from the building entrance.
Kushi’s head automatically rotated towards the direction, making Arnavv’s lips curved into a beautiful smile.
Prince rushed to his bike and sat behind him.
Prince: She saw you dude….
Arnavv started the bike and went off all the way looking at Kushi with the same smile.
Amann Singh was a sincere police officer. He always does quality duty. He won’t wait to get his senior officer’s orders. He does always his best. According to this case, he wanted to lessen Arnavv’s burden as he was handling the case from the begging, he became so eager after Arun Prince gave them the knot of the case. He started squeezing his poor brain. Collecting all the contacts, he was checking them in order.
Taking the first murder, he was checking four phone chats.
Aradna - First murderous.
Akilesh - Aradhna's husband.
Manohar - he was the one with whom Aradna had extramarital affaire. He was a lawyer.
Sadna - Manohar’s wife.
Amann is analyzing their phone calls. This case also had the same kind of chats like Stella’s case. Those were all capable of “A” certificate talks. He sighed… how a woman could talk such talks to a third person who is not her husband?
There were many contacts on Manohar’s phone as he was a lawyer. He had got a regular message from another woman also. she was his wife. They were all sad and heartbroken messages. it seems, she got to know about Manohar's extra-marital affaire with Aradna. Poor woman. Something dragged Amann's attention. She had been stored two numbers on her FAVORITE contact list. He checked them.
Aman’s eyes went wide open seeing Arnavv’s number in her favorite list, with another name. Chottu…
