My desire 23 August 2022: Preesha sees Sharda in hospital and asks if everything is right, she told she would be resting at home. Sharda says her diabetes medicines finished, so she visited doctor for checkup; asks her to accompany her as she is also going home. Preesha says she will visit her parents and then come home. Ahana with Mishka walks to Rudra and acts as apologetic for lying. Mishka also apologizes Rudra. Rudra says its okay. They both insist that if CCTV footage was not deleted, he would have been proven innocent. Rudra says its okay, he is proved innocent anyways. Ahana and Mishka walk away fuming. Doctor checks Neerja. Rahul worried asks how is Neerja’s condition.
Doctor says her brain started working again, if someone came to meet her and condition improved after that. Rahul says Neerja’s friend Preesha had come to meet her. Doctor suggests to call her again. Rahul calls Preesha. Ahana and Mishka discuss that Rudra didn’t listen to them at all, CCTV footage was missing and there must be some important clue in it; Ahana calls hotel and speaks to manager.
Rudra fumes seeing Preesha missing from home and plays guitar. Preesha returns to her room. Rudra starts yelling at her and blames her as usual. Preesha reverse counts and chants mantra to calm herself and says seven she is a human and cannot tolerate his repeated allegations, she trusts him and even he should, she is performing her duties and he should stop pestering her. He walks away shocked. Preesha thinks good she started reverse counting to calm herself. Rahul calls her and requests to come back to hospital. Preesha says he is planning something again, so she will not come. He says Neerja needs her help and she should please come. Preesha agrees and leaves.
Rudra sees his uniform’s tie missing and walks to Preesha’s room to yell at her again, but doesn’t find her there. He returns to his room thinking she where must have gone at this time, calls her, but her phone is in purse.Preesha reaches hospital and asks Rahul why did he call her now. Rahul says Neerja’s brain activity increased after she spoke to her. Doctor says she should try speaking to her again. Preesha speaks and describes how her baby calling her mamma and she should get ready for her baby’s sake. Neerja’s brain activity increases again. Doctor says its a good sign and she should visit Preesha daily. Preesha continues speaking to Neerja and says she will come to meet her daily. Rahul feels guilty and apologizes Preesha.
Preesha says that is the difference between him and her, her life changed for worse because of him. He asks if she will come daily for Neerja. He says that is what she promised Neerja and will come till Neerja gets well.Rudra thinks Preesha must be with Yuvraj. He calls Yuvraj, who is busy in a club flirting with a girl, and yells for deleting CCTV footage and asks to give phone to Preesha. Yuvraj gets happy seeing Rudra’s confusion and says Preesha doesn’t want to speak to him, makes girl laugh and say she doesn’t want to speak to anyone, and disconnects call. Girl asks who is Preesha. Yuvraj says she is his friend Nalla Khurana’s sister. Rudra gets heavily drunk. Preesha returns home. Rudra holds her and asks where had she gone.
Preesha says she went to meet Neerja. He asks after meeting Yuvraj or before that. She says she got Rahul’s call to meet Neerja. He says even Rahul, how many men she needs. Preesha warns him to mind his tongue.Preesha returns home, and inebriated Rudra yells that she went to meet her boyfriend Yuvraj. She says she went to meet Rahul’s wife Neerja. Rudra yells that she is characterless and is having affair with even Rahul now. Preesha warns him to shut his mouth, Rahul’s wife is in coma and she went to meet him. She confronts that people like him in society tarnish women’s character with their filthy thinking without thinking once; if a man goes to work late night, he is working hard and if a woman goes out, she is characterless and is having affair. She warns him to dare point at her character again and walks away, while Rudra stands in a shock.
Next morning, police arrive at Khurana mansion. Balraj asks how can they come without any prior notice. Inspector says they came to search for clue as they feel other pair of earring is in this home. Balraj asks how does earring look. Inspector shows pic. Mishka gets happy that its not her earring. Ahana warns her to zip her lips. Police searches house and finds earring pair in Sharda’s room. Balraj says this is his wife’s earring. Inspector says Sharda has to accompany him to police station. Balraj says he cannot arrest earring. Inspector says he is taking her for questioning. Sharda says he is mistaken as this is a common earring.
He asks if this is not the the pair of earring which was in Kirti’s hand, then where is this earring’s pair. Sharda picks one from her purse and says she is preparing similar one for her friend as she likes it. Rudra asks inspector to leave if his work is done. Inspector leaves. Ahana yells that all this problem is because of politician and Kirti’s father Harish Jain. Balraj says he will speak to his lawyer and teach Harish a lesson. Sharda relaxes thinking problem is solved. Preesha asks if she is hiding something and reminisces hospital incident where Sharda says she came to meet doctor for her diabetes, but doctor had prescribed her ointment for wound. She then follows Sharda to a jewelry store where Sharda orders pair of earring. Out of flashback, Preesha asks Sharda to justify.
Sharda says her toe is injured, so she doctor prescribed ointment and her friend needs same earring, so she is gifting similar one to her friend; Preesha should stop thinking much.Inspector returns to Harish who asks him why didn’t he arrest Khurana women as he is sure someone from Khurana family murdered his daughter. Inspector says there was same pair of earring and he cannot arrest without any strong evidence. Constable informs him that forensic team has found some evidence.
Saransh walks to Preesha tensed and asks her to come along. She follows him and is shocked to see Rudra drinking alcohol during online class. Teacher scolds him and complains against him to principal. Principal calls Preesha and says she cannot let Rudra set bad example on students, so she is restricating him. Preesha says he is stressed because of his cosinger’s death. Principal says she saw that news, but that doesn’t mean he will drink in class in front of small kids, so she is restricating him for 2 weeks to set an example. Preesha confronts Rudra, but as usual he blames her character for his stress and says she was with Yuvaj last night and lied. She warns him to stop his nonsense and calls Yuvraj, but Yuvraj thinks he wants Rudra to get out of Preesha life and hence doesn’t pick her call. Rudra continues alleging her.She holds his hand and says she will take him to where she was last night. He resists, but she gets adamant.
