A hard slap

In the meantime, things have started getting murkier at the office. There are no regular training classes and the management people are hardly seen in the office. Rishabh has started getting more and more restless, while Kartik is enjoying his days with Tina. The other guys are also concerned but no one is willing to talk about the inevitable. Rishabh has started becoming more friendly with another colleague in the office, Vipin. Vipin is a local Delhi guy staying in Laxminagar and traveling everyday to Delhi on his bike. He is a very decent guy so Rishabh has become very close to him and spends most of the time in the office together (not to be taken otherwise…). Subhash, the girlish guy, is getting more and more frightened by Mani’s extremes and the things become out of control when Mani actually slapped him one night for some petty thing. Rishabh lost his temper completely that day and blasted all the three, including Kartik, Rahul, and Mani. He told them this is the last month they are living together and if any further fight in the house he will simply throw Mani out of the house. Mani is naturally agitated with Rishabh, but he does not dare say anything against him because of Rishabh’s serious nature and his support from all the four. They also advise Mani to behave more coolly because nobody wants to be out of the house in this torrid time.

To be continued...
