Heer and Ranjha were caught and Heer was brought and made to sitat home. Meanwhile Ranjhas brothers and wives learnt about the state the state of affairs. They wrote letters to Chuchak to send Ranjha back home since he was already comfortable back home or that they would come and fetch him. Chuchak wrote back and refused to let Ranjha back and told them why Ranjha was maltreated as he was hardworking and capable. Wives of Ranjhas brothers again wrote to Chuchak longing for Ranjha to be sent back only to be refused again, together with a rebuke from Heer who also wrote praise for Ranjha. Thereafter love blossoms and both came even closer and Heer became more protective and possessive about Ranjha.
