Sidharth is working in his cabin while Shehnaaz is enjoying the little duties of being a wife at home. She is arranging their cupboard and dusting their room with a big grin. All this was a dream for her. She is endorsed in her work until Suhana comes to inform her. 

Suhana:- Shehnaaz, there is someone at the gate who is asking to meet Sidharth Baba. 

Shehnaaz:- but Sidharth is not at home. 

Suhana:- ya… the guards said the same but they are adamant to talk to you before going back. 

Shehnaaz:- ( confusingly ) Who are they? Do you know them?

Suhana:- no…. 

Shehnaaz:- ok, let them in. I will see. 

Suhana:- No… we can’t let anyone enter inside when you are alone according to Baba’s orders. That’s why the guards are calling you outside. 

Shehnaaz nods at Sidharth’s possessiveness and walks out to see who is adamant about meeting them. She descends the stairs while arranging her saree followed by Suhana. 

On the other hand, The Dixits and Malhotras reached the address given by Cabir. They got to know that Sidharth was not at home, so they waited for Shehnaaz to come out. Soon they witness a small petite figure walking towards them while talking to another lady. 

The lady’s saree, her nuptial chain, the thick stroke of vermillion, and her henna-clad hands were adorned with a bunch of red wedding bangles making her look heavenly. And her walking attitude shows her class. All the eyes present at the door were wide seeing THE QUEEN walking down. 

The family members were just adoring her except a few. Yashoda is dancing seeing her granddaughter-in-law in the most heavenly way. 

Soon Shehnaaz’s eyes fall on the family members who are standing beside the guards and seeing everyone her body just freezes in place. Although she met them once, but their pictures were printed on her heart, and how could she forget Sidharth’s family? 

Arjun sensed her numbness seeing Malhotras that’s why he walked ahead and shook her to bring her back. 

Arjun:- ( softly ) Shehnaaz……… 

Shehnaaz:- ( like a whisper ) B…..Bhai….. ( Brother ) 

Arjun’s eyes teared up but he controlled those traitors. This is not the first time that he heard BHAI from her mouth but this time this word means everything to him. This time the word held a new meaning for him. Not caring about anyone he took her in his arms, hugging her tightly, compensating for all the years. 

While on the other side, Shehnaaz held him closer and smiled slightly. 

Shehnaaz:- welcome back, Bhai. 

She welcomes him with a broad smile while Arjun kisses her forehead making her a little confused about his emotional side. 

Shehnaaz:- ( worriedly ) everything alright? 

Arjun:- ( smilingly ) much better. 

Shehnaaz nods and walks toward the rest. She bends down to take the elders’ blessing who blessed the newly wedded bride except for a few who cringed their faces seeing her. 

Shehnaaz:- ( sweetly ) why are you guys standing outside? Please, come inside……. 

Innaya:- ( rudely ) Your security wouldn’t even let us go a step ahead from here. Then, how can we come inside? 

Her rude tone couldn’t go well with Suhana, Arjun, and Asha. Shehnaaz too felt negative vibes from her but she let it go for the family. And somewhere she felt that it was their fault too. That’s why she joins her hand and bends her head to apologize to Vishember. 

Shehnaaz:- I am sorry! For what you have gone through because of us. I am extremely sorry. 

Yashoda:- shh….. Shehnaaz, it’s not your fault. So just chill. 

Security guard:- ( to Shehnaaz ) Mam, we can’t let them in without sir’s permission. It’s sir’s strict order. 

Shehnaaz:- they are OUR FAMILY. They meant no harm to me and your sir won’t say anything to you. So, relax! 

Saying this she passes him a warm smile making him nod. On the other hand, the family looks at her with pride because she still considers them as her family when they behave very badly with her. 

Shehnaaz:- ( to Malhotra’s ) Come…… 

She leads them the way inside but Innaya walks ahead with an attitude like she owns the house. And from her point of view, she is the owner of the house because it belongs to Sidharth. This behavior of hers couldn’t go well with Suhana as she somewhere insulted Shehnaaz. 

Nevertheless, everyone settled down in the living area and admired the house. Innaya’s eyes come out of their sockets seeing the beauty of the house while Shehnaaz walks into the kitchen to fetch water for everyone. 

Innaya:- ( while admiring the house ) Wow!……… Sidharth bought such a brilliant property…….. 

Suhana smirks naughtily hearing her and says to take revenge for Shehnaaz’s insult. 

Suhana:- ya….. It’s a pretty house with good and modern interiors but Shehnaaz made this a home. Let me tell you a secret mam…… Sidharth Baba bought this house for HIS WIFE…… I mean Shehnaaz. As she wished to have the house of her dreams, Sidharth Baba fulfilled her dream. Sidharth Baba loves her so much that I can’t even tell you. His eyes speak volumes about her. 

Innaya fumed in anger listening to Shehnaaz’s praise from her but Yashoda and Kiran appreciated her talks and dance as they got one more member in their team who could show Innaya her place. 

Shehnaaz:- ( passing them the glass of water ) water……. 

Divya caresses her hair after taking her glass-making her confused again. 

Varsha:- ( rudely ) Where is Sidharth? 

Shehnaaz:- He is in the office, Aunty Ji. 

Varsha:- Call him and ask him to come back. I want to meet my son. 

Yashoda gets angry seeing Varsha’s rude behavior toward Shehnaaz and scolds her in front of everyone, making her embarrassed. 

Yashoda:- this is the way to talk to your daughter-in-law, Varsha? Did any manners left inside you or did you sell all these in the market? She is being sweet with you after taking such harsh words which shows her manners but you forgot everything. 

Yashoda shakes her head in displeasure while Shehnaaz has no words to say. She is already feeling awkward between them as she knows that no one likes her being Sidharth’s wife. But now this won’t affect her as only Sidharth matters to her. Ignoring everything, she took her phone to dial Sidharth’s number but Innaya stopped her with a fake smile. 

Innaya:- Shehnaaz, give Sidharth’s number to me. I will call him. You know he is my childhood friend so, he won’t deny me. 

Shehnaaz takes a back hearing her because she knows Sidharth, he won’t pick up any unknown call. But she is in a dilemma as she can’t even deny it in front of anyone. So, for the safer side, she gives his number to Innaya making her smirk devilishly. All this again won’t go well with Suhana who is mad at that little crack piece that tries to invade the couple. 

Innaya dialed Sidharth’s number showing her new smartphone to Shehnaaz trying to make her jealous who didn’t even give her a damn and was busy with Asha. Her first ring went unanswered making her scowl in anger. Then, the second ring again went unanswered, and Sidharth cut her third call making her mad. 

Asha:- ( with a naughty smirk ) What happened, Innaya? 

Innaya:- he is not picking up the call. Maybe he is busy. 

Asha:- oh…….. ( to Shehnaaz ) Shehnaaz…… 

Shehnaaz:- Ji….? 

Asha:- you call him once, maybe he will pick up your call. 

Shehnaaz nods knowing what will happen if she calls him back home. She knows her romantic husband. He won’t let a single second pass without teasing her. After gulping a lump she calls his number who picks up the call on the first ring as if he was waiting for her call only. 

Shehnaaz:- ( sweetly with a big smile which was noticed by everyone ) Hello Sidharth…… 

Innaya fumed in anger while Suhana taunted her. 

Suhana:- Sidharth Baba proves that the wife holds a higher position as compared to any CHILDHOOD FRIEND. He can be busy for his friend but for his wife, he is always free. Right, Innaya mam? 

Innaya turned her face away showing her displeasure while some ladies giggled seeing her situation. 

Other hand, in the office, Sidharth smiles brightly seeing the caller ID, and picks up the call another second. While answering the call he closed the file on which he was working seconds ago and slumped down on his chair. 

Sidharth:- ( hurriedly showing his busy self ) Hello, Mrs. Malhotra…… say what you want to say and be fast. I am busy. 

Shehnaaz rolls her eyes exactly knowing how busy he could be. But she didn’t answer him as she had an audience whose attention was only on her. 

Shehnaaz:- Come home now!  

Sidharth couldn’t believe his ears and that’s why ask again. 

Sidharth:- What? 

Shehnaaz rolls her eyeballs again and repeats herself whereas everyone is just assuming things seeing her expressions. 

Shehnaaz:- Sidharth, Come home. 

The phone slips from Sidharth’s hold hearing his wife.
