She was worried and was feeling bad. She soon sat down on the stairs and was deeply immersed in some thoughts. She felt as if every thing was over. She lost her best buddy and gave some one a chance to know her secrets. She stared at the green plants and the grasses. She was hoping if some one could rescue her from all her woes.
That night, a moment I couldn’t decide,
I did choose wrong, to do it that day,
I don’t know why, my heart beats so,
I wish these horrid thoughts would go away.
How was I caught in the act, I know not,
In that place, so far away from here,
Now I know not what to do, how to escape,
What will the future hold, I only can fear.
I lost that night, a treasure I long had,
I lost my best friend, a person unique,
I miss him so much, his tears and his smile,
Just wish he was here to hear my heart speak.
In this times, of doubt and tensions much,
I have by my side, a loving and chivalrous knight,
To comfort me, to say all will be well don’t worry,
Just those little words, make my day bright.
These days to come, will be torturous,
I hope all will be fine at the end, and soon,
Even in my dreams, I shall pray for that too,
Lord, I beseech you, please grant me this boon.
Soon, some one
from behind touched her. She could feel the Solace. That gesture suggested that the person will be with her at any circumstances of life to support and protect her. She looked behind to see who it was. It was her boyfriend Ishant. She knew he would support her and won’t betray her. She hugged him.
“Listen, go to your uncle’s house and attend your cousin’s birthday party,” Ishant said to his girl. He wanted her to stay cool, and get freed from all sort of worries.
“Ok, Ishh!,” she gave him a smile .
It was 7 pm. Ananya had gone to her uncle’s house to attend her cousin Anurag’s birthday party. Anurag was turning 4. Uncle Sai and Aunty Sonia welcomed Ananya.
“Beta, how are you?,” Sai asked Ananya. Sai Prakash Shergil was 35 yr old. He was Mr.Pratik Shergil’s youngest brother. Sai admired his brother and his babhi Aditi. They both were like god to him. At times, Mr.Pratik used to help him. Sai was faithful to his elder brother.
“Where is Bhaiyya and Babhi?,” He asked Ananya with some curiosity.
“They have gone to attend some office meeting, Chachu,” Ananya replied.
At 8 pm, the birthday party began. Little Anurag was ready to cut the cake. Ananya along with Aunty Sonia was standing behind Anurag. They all sang “Happy birthday “song for little Anurag. Ananya gifted her present to her cousin Anurag and kissed him.
Soon minutes later she got a phone call. It was from an unknown stranger.
“Hello,” she said.
“Lalala, 3 more days to go,” the caller reminded her about Saturday morning.
He soon cut the phone. This time it was from a different number. Now, she started sweating.
“What happened? Beta you alright,” Uncle Sai and Sonia asked her.
“I have to leave, its already late,” She said to them and left for once.
The next day, she told Ishant about the phone call. They later on planned to inform this to police. They soon left for A10.
“Hello, this is Inspector Eddie Thomas here,” The police inspector said to Ishant and Ananya.
He was brown and had a short hair. He was 6 feet tall and was looking like a typical Mallu . He had a bunch of “medals” on his chest, though they don’t really mean anything .He just liked to show how they looked.
“Sir, we are under a serious trouble, we need your help,” both pleaded and said everything about what happened. They told him about Sami’s death and about the phone call they received.
“So, who could it be,” Inspector Eddie asked them.
“Sami,” Ishant said.
“The Tibetian guy who followed us,” Ananya said to the police officer. “What?,” Ishant was now confused .
She said about the Tibetian guy who followed them for a while and later on disappeared.
“Interesting case,” Inspector Eddie was keen to solve the mystery. Both had high hopes on him.
“You can go now, I will call you soon,” The police officer said to both of them..
“Please, don’t let our parents know all these,” Ananya said to the police officer and they left.
Ananya and Ishant had a sigh of relief for a while.
Inspector Eddie and his team had already started with the investigation work. Along with cyber crime officials and research experts, he traced the network of the person.
Three days later, Inspector Eddie had called Ananya and Ishant to the police station.
He showed him a person whose face was covered with a black cloth.
“Remove the cloth from his face,” he ordered the constable.
“This is the person behind everything,” He told both of them.
As the police constable removed the cloth, Ananya could not believe her eyes.
