She feels terrible after discovering that the thief caused an accident and this affects her so much. Her roommates try to cheer her up and even host a party at their house. However, the party does not go as per their plan because of an angry neighbor who does not want the noise.

Bella due to her attitude turns up the music and talks bad not caring about the neighbor. She is so much into the party and only thinks about her and did not look like caring about others. Things go out of control and leave Bella feeling guilty, and she has to learn an important lesson after which she will change.

Meanwhile, Alan has some close people in his life; Rosemary, his ex-wife with who he has a love-hate relationship Lynette a teenage daughter who he adores and Fiona, his current lover and wants to spend the rest of life with. Clive is a journalist who still promotes him the same way he did it many years back when he won.

Though Alan has not been successful for some time now, this might be his year of winning, but it seems that there is someone who does not want this to happen. One day he offers a lovely young lady ride on his way to. Andrew’s and three days later he gets news that the lady was killed. The news leaves him in shock and requests his assistant to stay away from for some time to enable Saxon to make a charge. While making the charge, he is almost killed to keep him off from going on with the match.

He spends most of his time on interviews with the police while doing the press. Saxon realizes that the contempt for his father is as a result of the reluctance of the local policemen.
