I do 27 September 2022: azad gets tensed as amad gives mahira a ropse, and she shyly blushes. He eyes azad evilly amused at his displeasure. She acceps it. He asks her to dance and she is surprised. She says that she is a bful dancer, and jokes about it. amad is amused, but still tags along with her, and gives out his hand for her to accept. she does so while azad is displeased. he eys azad teasingly, and then takes her to the dance floor, and dances to a peppy number, while azad’s face remains stoical and stern, thinking that amad wont ever become good, but mahira is very innocent and he cant see tears in her eyes, even though he doesnt want to interfere in amad’s life. While dancing, mahira twils and turns to face azad, who confronts her, while amad stands behind them.
Azad begins to dance with her, while she doesnt comply immediately. he however puts on his loving caring self, and then gets her to dance. Khan begum is tensed thinking that time is slipping away and she has to find that girl soon. Mahira and azad dance sensually on a romantic number, while she is boggled. Amad watches tensedly. they look like two lovers, with their soul united, as they romantically dance. to the sensual number. An awkward yet romantic embrace and eyegaze follows, while she shyly lowers her gaze, as he eyes her lovingly, boring down upon her. finally, she composes herself and retreats herself, remembering amad’s venom against azad. All clap. Then amad comes in instigating mahira that this is exactly how azad gets jealous and tries to snatch everything from him, and thats how she has to cure him.
She leaves tensedly, while amad is amused. she comes to azad and asks her to come along for water, as she is very thirsty. then she, through her bantering and dancing, continues to ask about azad’s vitals. he is boggled, and then asks why is she behaving so weirdly, and asking his stats, while dancing. she again gives another lameass excuse for it, and then tries to cheer him, but he is far from it. He eyes her stoically. She badgers on about his height and weight, and he finally tells her. he goes ahead, and she remembers she needs to see the colour of the eyes. she hollers for him, and he turns back, while she checks out his eyes.
he is at discomfort, and asks whats she doing. she says that she just noticed that there’s huge depth in his eyes. Another romantic eyegaze follows. As she is pushed, he rushes in to catch her, lest she is pained. her dupatta gets entangled in his handcuff, and slides down her back. khan begum passing by sees the special figure of eight on her exposed back, through the throngs of the crowd. She breaks her glass in astonishment, and wonders that she is so tensed that everywhere she sees it only. she discards her suspicions. But then she looks again and is sure. she starts moving towards it. Khan begum takes a knife, and stealthily makes her way through the crowd trying to catch a glimpse of the special girl, and then kill her by stabbing.
mahira meanwhile tells azad fumbling, that his eyes are very deep, as if there are lots of secrets in it. he gets tensed and walks off, taking her with him too. Khan begum meanwhile keeps a happy face amindst the crowd, and then when she looks up, she finds the figure gone. she wonders where did that girl disappear so fast. meanwhile, mahira calls azad and says that her dupatta is stuck. they untangle it, and she takes it back again, covering her back. meanwhile, khan begum spots a different woman, with the same kind of bracelet in her hand, that she saw in the reflection, with razia. When the girl is asked by her friend, she doesnt reveal that she stole it from under the sofa and wore it.
She says that its hers. Khan begum is tensed to find azad and mahira talking and wonder whats she upto now. she says that she shall take care of this matter later, but right now, she has to attend to this girl with the bracelet. she moves to her, as she is obliviously dancing. khan begum greets her, and then lures her to her room, on the pretext of showing her her dear friend amad’s room. They both leave. mahira is tensed to see this. Amad comes and asks about khan begum. mahira instead asks him why he lied about being a scorpio when he is a libra. he flirts, while azad goes angrily. he continues to tease azad saying sorry, adding that being the birthday boy, he deserves to be forgiven. Azad leaves angrily. Amad asks mahira to look for khan begum. she goes. Amad meanwhile has her own vicious plan.

Azad leaves angrily. Amad asks mahira to look for khan begum. she goes. Amad meanwhile has her own vicious plan.
Later, khan begum has that girl gagged, while she is scared, and she is told that she would end all her miseries and then end her life too. Khan begum eyes her angrily and then stuffs her face down in the vessel of water, saying that for her misdeeds earlier, now she would have to face death. mahira meanwhile goes through the corridor, trying to figure out azad’s horoscope, boggled and puzzled. The girl starts struggling, as she is unable to breathe, while khan begum bears her face down under the water. mahira knocks on the door, alongwith being surprised at the gurgling sound, wondering what is it, and khan begum is tensed, while the girl struggles to gasp for breath.
She finally draws the girl’s head out of the water, while she is breathless, still gagged. Mahira is about to open the door. the screen freezes on mahira’s face.Mahira is about to open the door, when khan begum opens it herself, watching her tensedly. then she asks her whats the problem, and mahira says that amad was searching for her. mahira tries to peep through, thinking that she heard something weird from inside the room. she stands outside boggled. while khan begum shuts the door. She eyes evilly the girl’s dead body, saying that for 25 years she has been fighting this war, and today she finally won over sanam. but one look at her still decaying skin, makes her wonder how is this possible, as its the same bracelet. when she doesnt find the figure on her, she thinks that she killed the wrong girl.
she wonders how she got the bracelet then. she again sets to searching that special girl. she comes down, and finds everyone gone, and thinks that this cant be, as destiny cant be that rude to her, and wonders where that girl could be. While mahira is working in the drawing room, scrubbing and cleaning the floor, with her back exposed, khan begum stands at a distance, oblivious of the fact that the girl she is looking for so desperately, is actually standing in front of her. she is tensed and leaves. mahira murmurs to herself, that khan begum and azad are equally brutal. she remembers azad choosing her, and wonders why she was chosen from all the girls. She says that she felt his eyes hid some pain, and he isnt what he seems.
she remembers about having made the herbal ointment, and thinks that if she doesnt administer it today, then she would lose its effect.In his room, azad reminisces his nice moments with sanam, from their first meet and is lost, tensed and worried too, as to whats happening to him, and why does he keep thinking about that girl, and thinks that this isnt right, and he shouldnt think like this about the girl, or anything else even. mahira approaches his room stealthily, and finds him asleep. She thinks amusedly that he does sleep with peace, and then thinks not to disturb him, and then thinks that she should the herbal medication hurriedly, and prays to God, that he doesnt wake up from his sleep.
She starts applying it on his forehead, while he sleeps. She thinks that if this works, then his breaths sounds would increase, but feels that it isnt like that. she checks with her fingers, over her nose, and then is boggled, wondering how is it possible. she then decides to check the heartbeat and places her ears next to his chest, leaving over him, trying to listen intently. Suddenly he wakes up, and finds the ointment on the head, while she stands up scared and tensed. he asks her whats she doing here. she makes an excuse that she came to check on him. he asks why she felt that need. she is at a loss of an answer, and asks her whats her interest in him. she tries to engage him in banter, about his horoscope thats very rare, as normal people dont have it, and maybe he isnt even a human after all, as its very unique. She says that he is very special.
he gets tensed. she says that he might look tough and villanous, but he is a hero from inside, very kind hearted, innocent like a child, and an angel with a pious soul. He asks her to leave. she says that she isnt scared of him, and lying, but actually her studies show that he is very different and far form being evil. she talks about how the ointment would have made his heart and breath be faster, but it didnt happen. she asks him to check for himself. He sdtands tensed. As she insists, she topples, and falls on azad, as he too falls on the bed. An awkwardly romantic eyegaze follows, as she lies atop him. then they compose themselves, and stand up again. worried, he asks her to leave, while she says that she can help him.
he says that noone can help him. she is boggled, and insists. but he takes her by the hand, and throws her out of the door, and locks it from inside. she keeps saying that she isnt lying, and has studies his horoscope. but he doesnt listen. They are oblivious that their hands are at the same place on the opposite sides of the door.In her room, khan begum is irritated with gazalla and latif overreacting to the murder, and she clarifies that she made a mistake of marking the wrong girl. They say that she should have checked for the figure atleast. she taunts them and then asks if the work she had assigned is done. latif says that its done, and then she is told to get rid of the body along with gazalla.
they get to doing it resignedly. khan begum walks out, keeping guartd, while latif and gazalla drag the dead body, from the corridor and across the hallway. When mahira reacjhes the corridor, she finds wet patches all over, and wonders why is there so much water. Mahira arrives in the hall, just when gazalla and latif have pulled the dead body out of the house. Mahira however follows the trail of water. she goes outside.While in the garden, in the late hours of the night, khan begum waits impatiently with the dead body, gazalla and latif are all tired. she asks them about the spade, and they tell her that they forgot.
She orders them angrily to go and get it. mahira oblivious of this, following the trail, approaches in the garden too. she starts walking carefully right to where the dead body lies. She is boggled. But her feet collides into something and she falls. khan begum is shocked when she finds mahira having slipped on the floor, her spectacles on the floor, at a distance away. the screen freezes on mahira’s face, as she looks up.
: Khan begum is shocked as she finds mahira lying next to the dead body, trying to search for the specs. Mahira gets up but in unable to see anything, and grabs blindly for her specs, and finally finds them. She finds her bracelet in turn, and then her specs too. she wipes them clearly, and then wears them back. as she turns, she doesnt find anyone there. She wonders if there’s anyone there but noone responds. she wonders how the bracelet reached there, and who was it who came home in wet clothes, and then disappeared. she makes her way back to the house. khan begum, hiding behind a different tree, is relieved to not be seen, but tensed that she lost yet another chance, to find that special girl.
The next morning, While all are in the hall, amad tells everyone, about that girl’s disappearance since last night, and shows the last selfie that he clicked with her at the party. khan begum comes with gazalla and latif tensedly, shocked as she remembers the murder. he says that he didnt know her that well. She asks him not to be tensed, clarifying that she was in her room, as she had a headache. She asks him not to worry, as she must have had a hangover. mahira asks if she can see this photo, and when she does, she looks at khan begum knowingly, and she is scared too of mahira’s response now. Mahira recognises the bracelet, that she got in the garden, which she is now wearing. khan begum asks mahira how she got the bracelet.
She responds that she got it in the garden, and there was some girl, who she couldnt see clearly, and is about to tell that its her. but before that, khan begum says that it must have definitely been that girl, who must have reached home by now. Mahira is worried, while she is asked to resume back to her chores. Khan begum thinks that she might have killed the wrong girl, but she is sure that she saw the right girl at the party last night, and thinks that she would have to check all the invitees yesterday to get to that girl. she says that she would go to any length and pay any price for it.
Location: Razia’s hideout
Razia asks if she realises what khan begum is about to do. She eyes her hair, wilting away, and thinks that she can do anything to defeat death, and is ready to pay any price to be alive. Razia warns but she is too sure. Razia hands her a wooden box, and says that the evil spirits shall help her. Khan begum says that now noone can save the special girl. She smiles evilly.
Location: Khan begum’s residence
In her room, kainat asks mahira if she is sure, and mahira says that she is absolutely sure. kainat says that she is still tensed, as its amad’s birthday, and even khan begum doesnt know. Mahira says that she wont deny her even when she gets to know. she manages to convince kainat to do what she wants her to do.
Khan begum enters her room, hastily, assured that noone saw her coming inside, and douses the lights to ensure that noone knows she is inside. she lights a candle, and thinks that the evil spirit that she has today can lead her to do things unimaginable to everyone. She opens the box, to reveal a shining dagger. she takes it out and then stabs herself in the chest with it, as she remembers razia showing her the dagger, and telling her that once its touches her body, she would die, and for 15 minutes, her soul can go anywhere for the next 15 minutes, in which she can go anywhere where she normally cant, and when 15 minutes are over, she shall return back in her body as the dagger comes out, and also warns that if she delays taking the dagger more than 15 minutes, then she wont be able to reenter her body, and shall forever wander around as a lonely soul.
she stands stunned and then falls on the ground, with the dagger in her chest. her soul gets up from the body. her soul says that she didnt just place a bet, but placed her entire life on a bet, and that after 15 minutes, she needs to return back to her body, and in this time, she would either get her special girl, or else she shall become a lone, wandering soul forever. she goes past the door, and walks down the stairs. Amad comes up and moves past her, as he isnt able to see her. she is amused, and then goes down. She finds latif, gazalla and kainat, all are unable to see her, and is confident of the success of her plan. she walks past them. kainat thinks that she felt someone just passed by and asks if anyone felt it. but they deny.
She then finds a crowd of ladies, with mahira, and wonders whats happening and who are they. She says that she doesnt have time to waste, and moves out. but then she comes back shocked yet again, as she finds the special figure on the back, while mahira stands. she is amused thinking that destiny is overly favourable for her, as the girl she is searching for, has herself walked in the lap of death. she starts progressing, trying to make her way through the crowd, to get to the girl. but stops shocked, as she finds that a lady comes with the Holy Quran, and wonders who got this prayer sermon arranged. All sit down for the prayer service to start, while she gets tensed and uncomfortable, as she hears the holy chant, feels the hole smoke, that makes the entire environment pious. Kainat sits to pray too. her soul is thrown away, due to the impact of the holy spirits, outside the house, and the doors shut.
She is unable to open the doors, as she is thrown away yet again. Khan begum is extremely tensed and worried, that her body lies inside, which she needs to get to, and she stands outside, as the doors are shut, extremely sure that she saw that special girl. she wonders what to do.she wonders what to do.In his room, azad laments at the life that he has been given, which is extremely disgusting, and that he lives in constant fear that if he tries to get too near to anyone, and they know the real truth, then it shall create huge problems. He thinks that all he wanted was to cure kainat’s hands with that flower, but he failed in that too. he feels defeated and depressed about his condition.He is tensed that he always has to live in solitudes
