chapter 2
Back in Gujral villa, Roshni was getting tired of waiting for her di who had gone ski diving. She wasn't to be seen in d sky. Prithvi had told her, this part of hill, co-owned by Saxena'z n Gujralz was kept exclusively for family members only. So she expected Damini to turn up this side only. Till then she was getting bored. Only jerk of swing she was sitting on, was keeping atmosphere alive!
She had taken special liking to this swing ever since momma told her it used to be her fav spot in childhood. They used to come to India in Christmas holidayz. But after her father's demise, they had been there for the first time in 18 years! She recalled momma telling it was where she n Varun used to play. Varun! Her mind exclaimed! She couldn't remember much, but that he used to run away from her without telling her the reason! Even now, she thought, he is the same, except more irritating!
When Prithvi n senior Saxena uncles had come to New Zealand three year ago, her heart took instant liking to Varun's photograph from album he had brought! She had imagined him to be just like Prithvi! Totally irresistible n thorough nice person. So, she was eagerly looking forward to this visit. But all her hopes came crashing down as she found Varun to be quite bitter towards her n her family too, she suspected, wasn't spared. But momma n di liked him a lot. N their open minded nature was indeed changing his preconceptions, if any. "What could it be, that all his family adores Gujralz but he z so bitter about them?" she thought to herself.

Suddenly, a car came in which she saw di n Prithvi coming out. She smiled! "Their fights are entertaining!" always her bro Sameer used to say. She was indeed missing him. Just then, she got a shock! Di's arm was bandaged. She ran downstairs so did momma. Both exclaimed n demanded explanation. She knew di was good at ski diving, so it indeed was faulty safety arrangement.
Damini n Prithvi were too discreet in their explanation to ensure least questions would be thrown as Damini had requested Prithvi. But as cars condition was not exactly d one to hide accident, they had to answer!
After lunch, Damini was summoned bed rest n Illa went for a meeting. Now Roshni barged into Damini'z room n rued about her helpless condition. The only event their company had was a formal party for investors n it was perfectly arranged by Prithvi's staff as a welcome gift. Kakima had strongly protested to her idea of continuing on managing NZ sections events. She wanted Rosh to explore her roots! Kakima! She was missing her badly. But had it not for kakima's punishment, she thought, bro would have been here. Damini too, was missing Sameer, kaka n kakima. She suggested Roshni to go to Saxena house but it was of no use! Avni di had gone to her kaka's with Jidnyasa di, her cousin, who was visiting. Jiggy di actually was there since Roshni's arrival, so they were now friends. But it was Pakhi, over whom Jiggy di n Roshni bonded big time. Now Pakhi was gone with them as she was too little to be left without her momma! She got up to let Damini rest. Suddenly, Damini told her to seek Prithvi's help as sprawling lawn n woodz of Gujral-Saxena joint property had Canal lining on other side. She never knew it! She was too excited to wait for Prithvi to return from meeting as she was always a water baby. She decided to check the good spots for snorkelling.
Roshni was enjoying d woods. Up-down, left-right, forward-backward she loved it from all views. Navigation machine showed she was now near canal. She lit up at thought of it! She was almost on seventh heaven when she missed the earth n fell directly into a valley! She was bruised n shocked to find herself in trouble! She started finding navigation machine n walkie-talkie to ask Garden control room to find her n take her home. She almost collapsed on realizing it was resting on top from where she had d great fall. Now she started searching for road to go upwards n soon realized d meaning of bhul-bhulaiyya! She cried out loud but in vain! She remembered all d devils reside in cave in jungle! "Thatz y I hate roaming in jungle!" She cried unable to control herself.
Soon she sensed someone coming from behind. She freaked out n hide behind the tree. Still a hand managed to make its way on her shoulder. She screamed n hand turned to cover her mouth! She bit it n away she ran! Soon she realized it was Varun! She turned n again to run but this time directly into Varun's arms! He was shocked to death! She was crying inconsolably. He tried pacifying her but in vain! He took her to his tent. He then offered water n then came chocolates. She now had gathered composure. He started talking about childhood memories to cheer her up while dressing her bruises.
Varun : Remember how u used to be? Following me to my every footstep! So I used to get irritated n then u used to ask me innocently "y r u running away from me?"
(Roshni smiled. Aha! This was d reason! Right from childhood, dumbo never answered when directly asked. He rightly became Lawyer!)
Roshni : N u used to offer me my fav milk chocolate to bribe me!
Varun : It was never to bribe u. U used to listen every word of mine if let to accompany me. I guess even now u r doing d same! Following me to spoil my peace!
Roshni was shocked at accusation. She got miffed n turned away from Varun to opposite direction, just to realize she was by shore of canal! Her hard work n bruises were negligible price when she saw beautiful nature at it's peak! She was tempted to jump in. But remembered bro says "Never to swim unknown water's unless u r facing trouble! Always ask locals to accompany." She looked at Varun with loadz of hopes. He understood her heart, frowned n told her to stay away as bruises might worsen.
Now again she was fuming! So Varun started enacting her. Right from peeping into water to spot fish, sitting on edge of shore, letting down legs in water n even turning left n right! Roshni was getting annoyed but got scared on hearing loud thud. Varun, in process to bother Roshni, actually lost control n fell into water much to her amusement n more so entertainment! She too, followed him. After water splashing session, Varun literally dragged her out!

As Varun was again dressing her wounds, scolding her no end, Roshni was happy as new found animosity between them had ended. She came to conclusion that he was indeed just like she had thought him to be!
Varun got up to attend walkie-talkie. It was bhaiyya - Prithvi telling him to find Roshni as neither her navigation machine was moving nor walkie-talkie responding! He told him she was safe n with him. Upon learning about Roshni's injuries, he insisted on them coming back urgently. Varun tried to reason him but he was not ready to listen.
Now it was Varun's turn to burn the heels as his most beloved, most awaited weekend holiday plan went in fumes because of ROSHNI!!! 
Precap : Damini calls Prithvi to meet secretely. All at Saxena house assume him to be gone meeting Janhvi, just when Janhvi enters to give Prithvi a surprise visit.
