String of Love & Friendship – Episode 1
Hey all!!!!Thanks for the love and response for this ff. Your support made me start immediately. So, I’m writing this. Before going to episodes, I like to clear certain things.I got interested in these both Mehendiwali and Aapki Nazaron serials by watching their promo but due to lack of time, I couldn’t able to watch it. I got to know that they are spoiling Aapki Nazaron. So, I have not included any other characters except the leads. I have watched Jaana Na Dil Se door before 5 years. I don’t remember all the exact supporting characters and I get irritated with Vividha’s father actually. So, here also no other characters are involved except the leads. Ishqbaaz and YRKKH are the ones that made my school life awe. So, some characters from both serials will be present. In YRKKH, I’m focusing only on Akshara and Naitik, so only old characters will be present. And I’m not watching it after Akshara and Naitik’s exit from the show. All the episodes will be a little small compared to my other multi-starrer FFS. Romance will come in the course of the story. But everyone will get equal importance.So, here we go into the episode.Episode 1Scene 1Rawal House is shown!!!Pallavi is shown doing puja at her home temple.Pallavi: Bhagavan Ji, today is Darsh’s birthday. I want him to be happy and he should get whatever he wishes in his life. I live only for my brother and sister.

She wishes her good morning.Pallavi shows her aarti.Pallavi: Vividha, did Darsh woke up?Vividha: Didi, today is his birthday. On every birthday, he wakes up only on your face. So, you should go and wake him up.Pallavi: Vividha, no. I’m not going. I’m saying this for 5 years. But he is not understanding and forcing me. But this birthday, I’m not going.

I’m the unluckiest as when Mumma got pregnant with me, dad died and Mumma died during the delivery. I was the one who is unlucky.Pallavi: You are our angel doll.
