“It’s 8:00 p.m. Where’s that boy? He should have been here by now. Grr…I hate men who come late.” Kalpana grumbles and orders for the third cup of coffee. “No Preeti. He’s not here yet. I’m getting bored. When will he come? I don’t even have his number to call him.” Kalpana says via the bluetooth earpiece. “Kalpi…I just called him up and he said he’s on the way. I’ll forward you his number and his photograph now.” Preeti answers over the phone and Kasturi keeps insisting her to tell Kalpana to keep silent and let the boy talk. “OK and tell mom that I’ll behave well with that boy. No need to worry about that.” Preeti looks at Kasturi who ignores her reaction.
“Did you check the picture Kalpi? Preeti says over the phone and Kalpana is about to answer when she notices a man wearing a brown suit and black goggles walking inside the restaurant. She keeps her phone down and watches the man. He has a chat for few moments with the manager and the manager points to the table of Kalpana. A smile forms on her face as she waves to that man and calls him to her table. Kalpana gets up and informs Preeti over the phone “He’s here.” “Oh good. Best of luck Kalpi and don’t disconnect the call. We want to hear the conversation.”
Kalpana stretches her hand for a handshake and the man smiles thus shaking hands with her. He asks her to sit down and she jerks and bit and takes a seat.
On the other hand Raghav enters the restaurant and starts searching for Kalpana. He turns around and notices all the tables are booked and each have a companion. He moves forward and enters the bar section and notices a girl sitting on a nearby table and checking her self in the mirror she is holding.
