Imlie 30 September 2022: Aditya stops bike midway home. Imlie asks why did he stop as they didn’t reach home yet. Adi says route is long and she has to decide where she wants to go. She says she wants to go home. He asks what she wants and where life should take her. She says she didn’t understand. He says their ways shouldn’t have met, whatever happened in Pagdandiya was under pressure and forceful, he never ahead of it, she is only 19 years old and has a whole life ahead, he wants her to spend her life in her way, she is intelligent and should study well and get married to a good boy. She shocked asks what is he saying. He says she cannot be alone and he wants her to choose a life partner. She asks him to stop.
He says he is not her husband, but she herself is considering that, her Pagdandiya sindhoor is not in her forehead; he wants to have her own family and life, he will support her and explain Mithi and Satyakam, he is her responsibility. She asks not to say that, his favor is an insult to her. He says he is not insulting her. She says she knows what he means, he feels their relationship as wrong, illegal, and helplesness, but whatever it is, she cannot deny their relationship; she never forced her relationship on him and never considered his and Malini’s relationship wrong, then how can she trust his words; she knows he feels bad seeing her doing his household chores and gets confused seeing her with his family; he wants her to stand on her legs; she will not stay or work in his house and will stand on her legs on her own without anyone’s support.
He says he wants to change her thinking as life is very complicated than her thinking. She says she knows he cannot make her Radha or Rukmini, but he cannot stop her from becoming Meera; she will go far away from him and his family and promises that he will never see her face again. He says she is misunderstanding him. She says she couldn’t understand him. He says he doesn’t want to talk about it and thinks how to explain her that nobody thinks like she is thinking. He asks not to feel bad about his words, he wants. She can understand how he feels seeing her at her home daily and she wants him to promise that he will never come to search her or will stop her when she leaves, else it would be difficult for him.
She sits behind him as pillion again and thinks she can bear any insult from Adi but not that he is not her husband; when time comes, she will go away from Adi’s life with his named mangalsutra and sindhoor and never wants even Seeta maiya take that right from her.

Adi walks to Malini and asks if she is busy. She says she thought he would return to work, should she bring something for him to eat. He says he wants to talk to her, but why she is ignoring him. She says she is unable to ignore whom she wants to as nobody can ignore their mom; she falls in mom’s words sometimes and fights with Adi, earlier mom used to think Adi was not giving her time and now thinks Adi is giving time to Imlie; she was speaking as if she is trying to create differences, its not normal; she wants to get her mom rid off her doubts. He sits in front of her and says he doesn’t want to know what her mom or the world thinks about him, he just wants to know what she thinks and if she has any doubt regarding him and Imlie. She says she feels trust has only white color which is pure and spotless and one doubt can spoil it; he never gave her a chance to doubt him and will not question him until he himself tells that his trust is breaking.
He says he will never let her trust broken even if he dies. He gets boss’ call and informs that all recording is with him and he will give it when he comes to office, he will write the story whole night and its better if story comes out early. He tells Malini that now he. She says he wants to go to office, he need not worry about her as she is fine and asks to take care of himself. He hugs her emotionally and leaves.

Imlie packs her clothes and looking at her mother’s pic thinks she thought to serve her husband and his family, her husband doesn’t want to stay with her, so she will obey him and will return to amma to stay with her forever; she couldn’t become Adi’s wife and doesn’t want to become his problem.
