Tara manages to put up a straight face in front of Jeremy. Probably for one last time, but word has it she's broken beyond repair. Bothered by what had happened.

Her emotions are difficult to read though.

She's been through enough already, without having to pull the trigger. Unfortunately she's not alone. Over the course of one month, huge changes have impacted the lives of at least six people.

Tara wants to withdraw. But first, she needs to put Jeremy out of misery, or so she thinks.

Jeremy is a wreck without her. A jilted lover who is perhaps wallowing in self pity right now.

"Love can really incapacitate you! As dim-witted as this may sound, I think it's actually the truth." Tara kept mumbling, not realizing that someone was privy to this conversation.

"Soon you'll arrive at the destination, mam." the auto driver brought Tara out of her reverie.

Does Tara really know where her destination is? She's still not out of the woods, but certainly on the right track.

Tara makes a frantic call to Jennifer, asking to meet at Barista, a few blocks away from her apartment.

"Shekhar almost left you, and if you're not careful, he eventually will. What you just experienced was a rude wake-up call."

"I'm not an assassin, Jenny. I didn't mean to ruin everything. Everywhere I went, everything I did, a door would slam. I feel shunned by everyone. What did I do to deserve this? I was nothing but a nice girl. You associate with my loneliness, right? That feeling of wanting someone so bad that you fail to distinguish between right and wrong."

"The term is licentiousness."

"I know that things between myself and Shekhar are pretty much beyond repair right now. I won't even presume to try and make everything better with a conversation."

"I just want to tell him that I'm sorry. For the pain it caused to everyone … But most importantly I'm sorry for my part in it. I miss the romance. And however far off it may be, I look forward to the day when we can be lovers again."      

"For now, all you gotta do is take your time. Take all the time you need."

"Jenny, can I hold you tight?"

"Thanks for just being there, no matter how hard it has been."

"I promise, won't let go this time. I'll stand by his side. Won't leave. Simply won't."
