Both the friends laugh and abuse each other in fun which shows they shared a very special bond.

Shabnam is curious to know about Nikhat’s storyline and whether it is the autobiography of her own story which was presented in the novel. Shabnam’s suspicion about the same turns out to be true and the reunion of the two replace into confessions, argument and fight. They realize that they were too selfish in their youth that lead them to take wrong decisions. The two best friends were in love with the same man ‘Javed’. Nikhat and Javed loved each other a lot.
