No matter how hard he tried to relax himself, his efforts failed. His life was at a make or break stage. Of course, he had no clue how to go about it. The mere thought of anyone being involved in the high risk affair was killing him. He did not realize when did sleep embrace him into its bounds. The same thing had been happening with him for the past oh-so-many months. His most trusted people were embracing (read trapping) him into their bounds without Sameer realizing anything.

After 2 hours of insufficient sleep, his unconsciousness was broken by the affection of a mother towards her child. His mom was rather too worried. He got up and assured his mother about everything being fine, just a bit of extra workload. He closed the door of his room again quoting that he had some important presentation to make. Surely, he had one to make, to present to Kenny and Shireen. He took out a piece of paper and made a list of all things he thought Kenny and Shireen needed to know.

Sameer was prepared, though still shivering mentally as he set out his travel towards office.

Hi Sam, you are here. Did not expect you to come so soon buddy.

Yeah Kenny! Have important commitments here. Where is Shireen?

Out on the call, as usual. She is a difficult girl to handle *laughs*

Yeah, I am scheduling a meeting, are you prepared with the rough drafts of the project report?

Almost done man. Shireen is helping me with that.

Cool! We need to discuss that as well. 
Ok, catch you in a while. Tell me when the lady gets over with the call.

Sure mate, will ask the lady to expedite *laughs again*

After 20 minutes, the three of them assemble in the meeting room to discuss the issues regarding the project.

So, are we done with the rough draft for the report?

Yeah, almost done Sam, Shireen has a bit of it left, hopefully will be over by 3 hours.

Yeah, right. We can proceed further with the final bit left.

Well, Kenny, Shireen, I need to tell something really important to you guys, but before that I do need to ask a few things.

What happened man? Is everything ok Sameer?

Yeah, nothing much to worry about Shireen. Just a few questions. So tell me, how comfortable are you working on this project?


Yeah, tell me.

I enjoyed it, I mean we three started it off as a child project, it was a dream, I believe we have come a long way. I am feeling rather nostalgic about it.

What about you Kenny?

Well, what shall I say. I did not know much of it when the 2 of you along with me started on this, but with passing time, I did learn a lot and this project is the reason for my long stay in the company. At one point of time, I did give a thought about leaving the company. I even gave interviews elsewhere *laughs*

Ok guys, now coming to my viewpoint. I loved this project ever since I started it. Perhaps, me and Shireen were the ones who so much wanted to do this project, and as Shireen rightly put it, it is actually nostalgic when I retrospect and realize having come this long. But I believe that I have had enough of this project. From the past few days, I have been going through a phase of constant self introspection and it would unfair on my part to go ahead with this project anymore. You two have worked equally well on this and I think you should go ahead and sign this deal.

What? Are you insane? You know better than us about this. Everyone knows you are the best person to do this.

Yes, Sam, you can't be doing this, man!

Decision made friends, for the good or for the bad.

What is that supposed to mean? Are you sure about it?

Yes Shireen! Hoping that both of you do understand. I am gonna drop a mail to Rajiv letting him know about it soon. By the ways, if any help is required, I am always there. All the best guys.

Sameer leaves the meeting room, with Kenny and Shireen left stranded!

He moved out smiling. He moved to his seat and took out the piece of paper he had got from home.

Task1: Meeting Kenny and Shireen and telling them about it. 

Task 2: Dropping a mail to Rajiv informing the same.

Task 3: Informing Shreya and asking for her guidance for the further proceedings.

Task 4: Final nail in the coffin!

After dropping a mail to Rajiv, he started to search for Shreya. His chalked out course of action was on its way.
