Shekhar was extremely upset over Tara taking on the fake riot case. Thankfully the inspector had dismissed her statement saying that she did not have any concrete proof and hunting for 2 men was like searching for needles in a haystack.

Still the fiesty lady had taken up another case of similar riots and planned bomb blasts in 90s. The riots were to be staged for toppling the then ruling party, but were fortunately contained after sparks in the interiors of Mumbai. Shekhar remembered them vividly. How could he not?

Jennifer was surprised to get a call from Roohi. She wanted to come over and play at her place. Right, now I am a playmate for nine year old girls?

Shekhar had insisted on dropping her off too. She could not refuse that. He was too damn sweet when he spoke with that mushy sing-song voice of his. Only condition – both Shekhar and Roohi had to be home when Tara returned from work.

Jennifer wondered why Tara had stayed back. She had two senior defence staff with her who would drop her home, so Jennifer didn’t inisist on staying. She had other business to deal with.

Roohi was as naughty as ever. Browsing her favorite fashion blog and trying on Jennifer’s latest collection of accessories. Jennifer was not at all in mood for all this right now. She was lost in thoughts of Cyrus Daruwalla. What in the world did he have to do with Anne?

Cyrus was over the moon when he got a call from Anne. She was coming over to spend the weekend with him in Delhi.

He was wary that he had set her off when she hadn’t called him for a month. He had begun to think that what was serious for him was a casual fling for Anne. Because she had not bothered to call or write to him since he had returned from that heavenly trip.

His heart skipped a beat when he heard her voice. “I am coming over honey. Make sure you have this weekend off.”

“Are you kidding me Angel? Of course I’ll be with you every second. I was about to make a trip back to Kovalam…wondering where you were,” said Cyrus.

***

Jennifer booked tickets to Delhi as Roohi sat scribbling on a paper. She looked at Roohi’s paperwork thinking it was a drawing of some sort. However she was aghast when she saw that the kid had been solving a mathematical puzzle. What made her jump was the answer – “offeryoucannotrefuse@gmail.com”
