Chapter 2 : Like it happened yesterday

It was the end of March. After the extreme coldness of preceding two months the city once again started getting warm. The brightness of sun felt pleasing during these part of year. I was busy reading a story book when the little boy in front of my seat jumped off his seat indicating something outside the window to his father. My eyes naturally also turned to see the thing that filled the boy with excitement. There was a monkey jumping across the endless stream if trees. The expression of joy on the boy's face got me a smile.
"Our reactions and expression does not actually depend on the things going around us. It’s something within us that determines how we are being affected by the same thing in different manners. The jumping of monkey was same for me, the boy and his father. The father remained expression less; I smiled while the boy burst out with joy. The outer scenario was same. That inner thing made difference."
My eyes turned towards watch on my left hand. It was almost eleven of that morning. I looked down the window again. Thousands of feet below there were some tiny houses. The bus was entering the city leaving the calm and soothing sceneries behind it. I was coming from my grandparents place after spending my holidays. Both the cities were separated by a hill. They were connected by cutting and transforming the hill itself into roads. The sharp turns and curves made the journey alone a thrilling experience. The familiar crowd of the city signaled that bus had entered the main city.
It was around eleven thirty when bus stopped and I got off. I bought a bottle of water from a small shop and stepped towards the market area outside the bus stop. I crossed a number of buses until I was in the outermost area of the bus stand. There existed a series of beggars. I moved ahead ignoring their voices and the faces full of expectations. I tried to act like I didn't notice them. I hated the concept that someone's whole life in our society depends on others mercy or kindness. My father had already told me to go to my uncle's shop and he will pick me from there. I turned right towards the market where the shop was. I entered the shop and went straight to my uncle and bent down to touch his feet as a sign to show respect. He blessed me with a long life. I sat down on one of the chairs and after asking about the journey he got engaged l. I focused on the customers in the shop. There was a girl aged around 8-9 years. She was with her father. She had a smiling face. She was happy for what was happening. It was her birthday and her father brought her to buy a dress. or perhaps for buying her happiness. I don't think he would be buying that dress if it makes her sad. His aim was to make her happy in that case and buying dress was just a tool for that. The real transaction there was of happiness painted in the colors of that dress. They thought they were buying that dress, I was seeing they were buying happiness wrapped in that piece of cloth.
After they went we started talking again until a new family entered the shop. A beautiful girl with a man in his thirties and his wife. She was in white top and black jeans. I stated at her all the time she was at shop. She had a good figure and a beautiful face. Perhaps the most beautiful I had ever seen. I wished she could be there for more time so that I could see her beautiful face for some more time. How lucky are some people to see such person every day, to talk to her, to live around her. I felt pity on me. Actually I got jealous of them. I stared her walking down the stairs that connected the entrance to the road and my father getting up the stairs. The man with the girl bid morning to my father. They had some sort of conversation and both moved on their way. I got down touching the feet of my father. He responded with a lovely smile and embraced me. And we moved towards our home. It was two weeks since I met my mother. I was in a hurry to see her.
                                                               ###
I picked my lunchbox from the table and came outside the house where my father was waiting for me to drop me to school. It was the first day of the last year in the school. Just one more year to get out of this boring hell- I thought. I was a studios and quiet type of person. A little above average in studies and a good behavior makes you an acceptable creature in our society with lots of praises wherever you go.
I always had a problem with things happening around me. When the school used to run I wished for holidays, and when we get holidays I wished to be at school. I think this is with all normal students except those lucky ones to have a girlfriend and boyfriend at that age. We were at the school gate in fifteen minutes. I bid goodbye to my father and turn around to enter the school. As I took my first step inside the school my eyes fell on that stunning face. It was the same girl I met at my uncle's shop. She passed a smile as she recognized me. I always abstained from talking people especially when it came to girls. I just gave a similar smile in return and moved towards my class.
I didn't really have any close friends that I was eager to meet after a long holiday. Still we all met and in those silly conversations and studies the day ended. At the end we all gathered for the assembly. We all stand in rows while the principal uttered his bullshit that was in his opinion important enough to waste our time. Meanwhile my eyes found out that beautiful face again and our eyes locked for some seconds. My heart started beating fast and I took my eyes off her. She too started looking somewhere else. I looked her until she placed her eyes back on my face and this kept going on for whole assembly and after that we all moved towards our homes. The first day of school had ended and it was not quite different from all those boring years except for that beautiful face happened to me. My father was waiting outside for me as I crossed the gate with my friends who were laughing on some joke made on the math’s teacher. We moved towards our home with the image of that beautiful smile in my mind.
It was the next day of school. My father had some urgent work to do so he dropped me school a little early. There was no one in the classroom when I entered. I went inside, put my bag on the last bench and turn around to go to the ground where all the students gathered in recess. I started moving towards the gate of our class from where I had to take right and move down the stairs to reach the common ground. It was the last step to cross the gate of classroom and the first step to come in the corridor when someone bumped into me. I slipped a few steps back. Then I turned to see who the person was. And there was she standing. The girl with beautiful face with one of her friends. I knew the face accompanying her. Her friend was a class junior to me. She was standing with her beautiful eyes fixed to ground and I was staring her like I don't believe what's happening. My heart started beating very fast sensing the uncomfortable situation I was facing. She had the most beautiful face that I had ever seen. I was lost in her beauty when her friend who already knew me said - "She is newly admitted to our class and she is a little weak in history. You have just passed the class, if u can give your history notes.........." Her eyes told me that she doesn't mean what she is saying. It was not the actual reason why they were here. It was only a tool to what she actually means. Or perhaps I just wanted it to be so. I couldn't figure out what was the correct picture. My heart had started beating much faster. I had to come out of that situation. I agreed to bring the notes the next day and they moved ahead. After going a couple of steps ahead her friend turned towards me and gave a cunning smile. I smiled back in return. Now what was this smile for? Did that mean that the most beautiful girl of the school had started liking me? No how could that be possible. After all I was a isolated studios guy, nothing else. Why should anyone be interesting in me? But the thing happened moments ago were indicating the impossible. It took a couple of minutes for my heart to go back to normal. Can't it be possible that she just needed the notes and I started making castles in air? I shouldn't make conclusions without knowing the reality- I suggested myself.
Next day I was ready with the history notes. I waited in my class for them to come. It was fourth period but i neither saw the beautiful girl nor her friend even once. The bell rang in a continuous tone indicating that lunch has started. I finished my lunch and went towards the common ground to see them. Finding them gave me comfort. She was with her who nudges her seeing me moving towards them. "I have brought the history notes you have asked.” I was still lost somewhere in her beautiful frame. "Okay, we will come to your class at the end to take it." Her friend told me with the same cunning smile. I had nothing more to say. I turned around and walked towards the corner were my friends were looking at me talking to the new girl who was in everyone's conversation these days. Everyone desired to be with her, to talk to her for she was such a beautiful girl. They kept on teasing me taking her name like she was my girlfriend. School life is amazing where simple talk with any girl could make her your girlfriend in everyone's eye and you can't explain anything to them. The situation got worse when she came to meet me at the end of the class when everyone was leaving and she was coming towards the class. I took the notes out and handed it to her. Her friend was looking at me with her smile. My hands touched hers while giving the notes and the heart beat went faster again. I pulled off my hand. Both the Friends sensed my nervousness and smiled looking each other. Her friend said, - “if there's anything else you want to say her you can say it". I was busy at seeing the beautiful face which evidenced widening of the thin lips resulting in a smile full of shyness. Now what was that? What does that words meant. Is she wanted me to propose her.? Tell her that I loved her? My heart started beating faster.
‘‘No there's nothing else like that.” I stammered with my words. Her friend gave a big smile like she knew what I was feeling. Both said goodbye to me and left smiling. I went towards the place my father was waiting to pick me. The beautiful face turned towards me looking deep inside my eyes like they were saying that they loved me. I turned towards my father and we came home.
I was standing in the common ground in a circle of my classmates with my face towards the two friends standing at a distance. In the conversation about some movie released that week I took out enough time to see her in regular intervals. And Every time our eyes met she used to lower her eyes. I loved those moments most in the whole day. When the bell rang signaling that we had to go now in our classrooms I looked her in eyes continuously until the wall came in between. Our love story will be a great and different one. It's just four days since we first met. The face I hadn't seen ever four days ago had become so important to me. I will have a great love story in which we fell in love in three four days of meeting and never separated then. I will take care of whatever she wants and thus there will be no problem between us. I imagined a perfect love story for me in which there will never be any problems. I smiled feeling myself on the top of happiness.

It was last week of April. The warm winds of summer had started. Usually it was around mid may when our city became too warm to come out in afternoon. But this year the temperature crossed forty five degrees in Last April itself. It was twentieth day of the school. We come to know a lot about each other, thanks to the kind friend of hers who always led us to a talk. If she wouldn't been there we would have spend all those days looking at each other face. She was new in the city and lived here with her uncle. Two daughters of her uncle were also admitted to the school along with her which I came to know later. We looked and smiled at each other all the time we got. Every day she used to come to my class with her friend and we used to talk. Sometimes the elder one of her two sisters also accompanied them. Her friend had asked the same question five times that whether I want to say her something. And as always I denied. I got nervous every time and it ended with her cunning smile as if she knew what was going inside my heart and brain. The whole day had elapsed as it did for last twenty days. We were assembled after the classes in common ground when principal made the announcement- “As per the orders of Deputy Commissioner of our city, keeping in view the extreme warmness of weather our school is going to be closed for summer vacations from tomorrow. And the next class would be sixteenth of the month if June. ‘‘I turned my face from principal towards her and I find those eyes were already on me. The announcement meant we were going to meet the next time after one and half month. I didn't know what to do. Being in assembly meant we were not going back to our classroom. Instead we have to go home directly from there. I was waiting at the gate when she came with her friend. A line of worry was clearly visible on her face too. We were getting separated for the first time after we met. I could remember how hard it was for me to spend my Sundays when school remained close. I had no idea what would happen in one and half months.
I want your contact number” I said. I already put a piece of paper in my upper pocket along with a pen. I took out the paper, put it on my left palm and started writing as she started speaking the digits. I felt it hard to write on that paper. The pen seemed too heavy to me to write anything. I hardly have completed writing one digit when her friend said, “Your hand is shivering badly” I noticed my hand. I didn't know what was happening to me. I was unable to move my hand further.
 “You seem to be nervous. Be comfortable." Her friend added.
It may be so" I didn't have anything else to say apart from this.”  Let me write the number myself" the beautiful lips had stopped telling those digits I was unable to write. She took pen and paper from my hand and started writing herself. She had gone to the fourth digit when her hands got the sand condition as of mine. We could see the shivering hands. Her friend took the paper from her hand, placed it on her shoulder and completed writing the number as she spoke the digits. I took the paper and put it back in my pocket when her friend asked again “do u have to say something else?” This time seriousness took the place of the smile. I could feel what does those beautiful eyes looking towards wanted to hear from me. We were going to be separated for one and half months and this was the time to say those words. My heart beats got faster.
"No there's nothing like that" I said and turned away to go outside where my father was waiting for me. They moved ahead. Sadness has taken place of those beautiful smiles. I felt pity on me that why I couldn't have said her that I love her. She must be happy if I said her. It was what i wanted, it was what she wanted. We moved towards our respective homes.

                                                                  ####
It was about a week when school got closed. I missed her badly. Those small looks, those meeting of eyes and her smile. The beautiful voice if hers. I decided to call her. She had told me that the number was if her uncle. I took my father's mobile phone and dialed the number written on the paper. A manly voice picked up the phone.
 "Hello"
"Hello, can I talk to....  I took her name"
"Who are you?"
"I am her class friend" 
I said. 
He handed over phone to her.
" Hello, who is this" 
"Hi, this is me. How are you?"
"I am fine, why you called me?"
" Do I need a reason to call you?,"
" No, it's not so. But uncle will ask if I talk to you. So don't call me again." 
“Okay, I won't."
" Do you have something else to say?" 
Her soft voice was full of expectations. I knew what I had to say. I felt uncomfortable and answered. “No. There's nothing like that" 
"Okay, bye. Take care. See you again at school" 
"Yes. Bye" It was a few minutes we remained silent over the call when I disconnected it.
                                                                 ###
I got ready for the school. One and half months of separation had passed. Today was the time to see her again. I had waited eagerly for this day. I ended my breakfast and went outside. My father dropped me. From the moment I entered the school my eyes started searching for her. But I couldn't find. It was in the k lunch break when I finally saw her with her friend in the common ground. She was looking gorgeous in the blazing rays of sun. She looked me passed a smile and got busy with her friend. And the day ended. I came home. I thought why she is behaving like this. Everything was good when we got away. Did I make a mistake by not saying her that I love her? There may be the possibility that she found another guy. One and half month is a big time for that when compared to four days of mine. This is the human nature. When we don't get the right explanation or reason of things happening around us. We start making our perception to support the happening of events. And what is the probability of our imaginative perceptions to reach the reality. And there is the place where all misunderstanding starts. So isn't it better always to tell the right reasons to person in front. Or the person should be wise enough to accept that it's not necessary that the perception he makes always be true.
It was the second day and I was dieing to talk to her. To look her the same way as I did before. I went to her in the lunch break where she was standing with her friend. "Can u please excuse  us for a moment. I want to talk her alone." Her friend looked at her face with the same cunning smile and got a little away leaving us alone. The smile gave me some comfort that everything was okay. 
"Come at my classroom when at the end of the day" I said to her. She looked in my eyes and gave a shy smile.
"Okay, I will be there" I got away from there and waited for the classed to end. 
Finally the bell rang and everyone started going out of the class. After everyone had gone I came out to see if they are coming. I saw her coming along with her friend and both the sisters.  The three of them remained outside the class at a distance as they always used to do while she came inside the class. I moved towards a corner and sit on the desk in front while she stood with her back on the wall four feet away the first desk. She looked at me and our eyes met. I looked her at beautiful face. That was most fascinating than ever before. I didn't know what I had to say. I stood in front of the desk and took a few steps towards her. She kept on seeing towards the floor. I took one more step. Her eyes came up and met mine. We kept on seeing each other for a long time until. I got deep inside her beautiful eyes. I got closer to her eyes to see them. It was only a few inches of distance remained between our eyes when her lips touched mine and my eyes got closed. I couldn't feel anything. The right arm got around her neck to hold her tight so that we could feel each other heart beats. The heart beats were the fastest I had ever felt. I didn't know whose heart beats were those. I felt nothingness when mind goes out of any thoughts. The hold of her hands around my back went light when we heard the voice of her sister. She came inside to tell her that her uncle had come to take them home as well as my father. She was surprised and smiling to see us. Shall we? We didn't know what had happened just then. We can't explain why and how that happened. It just happened. We took our bag and came out of class and moved ahead without saying anything to anyone.
                                                    ###
It was the next day. I faced the mysterious smile of her friend the whole day accompanied by the shy lowering of her eyes whenever they met me. The mysterious smile of her friend was like she didn't believe what she heard from her beautiful Friend's sister. The whole day passed like that. Her sisters looked at me like I am an alien and that left me embarrassed over what had happened. We met at the classroom at the end. This time her friend was with her. We talked about the vacations. She went to her dad after the day I called her and came back two days before classes started. We talked about various things before we moved towards our home. Her friend turned and asked "Is there something else you want to say her” "There is nothing like that to say" we both smiled with these and moved ahead.

I was waiting for her to come at the gate of the school the next day. My father dropped me a little early that day as he had some work. I moved a little ahead of the gate with one of my friend when a car stopped in front of us. A guy aged twenty four twenty five cane out of the car. He stood almost half a feet above me and had muscles almost double what I had. He asked me my name. I smiled and said my name. "SLAP" my face almost turned to the other side with his powerful slap. Before I could understand what was happening there were three more on the same side of the face. I didn't even scold before this. All I got was praise and in return I always smiled. This was all I had learnt. "Get inside the car" he roared. Seeing what had happened just I didn't had the gut to say no to him. I got inside. There were two more people in the car - one was driving and one was sitting in his left at front seat. I got in the back seat and the one slapped me got inside and sat with me. The other two were almost thirty years or more and have the physique of men. They all were in anger. I was thankful to the person behind me that at least he stopped hitting me. I was thinking during the way I had always lived in praises and love of elders. How I will be living keeping these slaps in my memory? 
"It was you who called to talk to her that day?"
"Yes" I said. My voice stumbled in fear. I started to have idea what was going around me. I started thinking the thing I had done was wrong. The person driving the car was telling the person besides him that I troubled her, talked to her and so on. I wasn't in a condition to think and analyze what they were talking. I just wanted to come out of this. 
" Have you informed his father to come " the person driving the car asked from the person sitting with me.
" Don't tell him anything. I swear I won't even talk to her ever again. I beg u please forgive me this one time. “I hold his feet with both my hands. Tears came rolling out of my eyes for what I had done. I had a respect of good boy in everyone's eye and if they know these how could I live with that guilt. They will hate me for this. I thought the moments of looking and talking her. Why I had done that - I thought. The car stopped and we all came outside a house. The person beside me took me inside the house. There was a sofa on which he indicated me to sit. The sister who saw us in the class appeared in that room. 
“He is the one?" He asked.
"Yes, He is" she answered looking at my face. 
“Can we go to the school now?" I turned recognizing the beautiful voice. She looked at me then turned away. The younger sister accompanied her. What was the meaning of this? I got puzzled. Three of them went outside the gates and the one who took us here went to drop them school.
I heard the footsteps of someone coming towards the room. It was the same man who come with her at my uncle's shop and talked with my father. I felt comfort at least he would know about me. He came taking fast steps and gave me a powerful slap. After which I couldn't feel anything on the left side of my face. He continued that again and again. I stood at my place by then crying in pain. All I could have thought at that time was to come out of that situation. He went towards the corner of the room and took a wooden stick and came towards me. I shivered in fear. The stock was almost a inch in thickness almost the same size of the one holding it. He came in front of me. Pulled the stick with both the hand taking the other end besides his head and dropped it on my left arm and shoulder with the maximum force he could. I moaned in pain and the second was on my thighs. Third time it was on my right thigh. I fell on the floor with the fourth one on my waist. I continued to beg them to leave me and he continued to beat me. He was abusing me, my dad, and my mom. He kicked my face with his shoes and blood spilled out my nose. I felt very week. My yes began to close down while he continued with legs and sticks. I hold his legs to leave me. My mind couldn't sense anything. I saw my father coming through the gates along with our principal before my eyes closed......

Chapter 1 : The Monster

It was a large hall. Apart from the main entrance in front it had an additional door that opened in an attached small room. The lights of the room were extraordinary bright to eyes. There was absolutely nothing in the hall except the chains that tied those seven people for last fifteen years. There was a continuous beep sound played at high pitch which could make mad anyone listening to it for long hours. They were almost dead there. They were never fed there except Sundays. The brightness to break the sight, the hunger to break the strength, and the sound to break their thoughts and this continued for last fifteen years. They were captives of a true monster. Suddenly some of the lights got turned off. The irritating sound stopped. And all the seven looked up in fear. They started shivering sensing what was to come. The last time he came there, he beat the old man's daughter for a continuous one and half hours even after she fainted, until he fell himself getting tired. Then he stood again went near the fifth person who was a young one and take knife out of his pocket, hold his right hand which had only two fingers left and chopped off his both fingers half. The captive groaned and he smiled like if gave him pleasure. He turned to the old man who was almost fifty now and ripped off his muscles on chest with his hands only and stared the blood coming out of it like a newly wedded couple watches rain. They all cried, begged for mercy, apologized but nothing could stop him. He spent almost six hours torturing them with his new ideas. He was doing it for last fifteen years. The captives consisted of two men of approx sixty years, their wives. One girl who was the daughter of the old man and was almost thirty five and there were two other one boy and the last one was a girl. The entrance opened and he entered the hall. They all looked towards him as they saw a ghost. They hated that face most in their life. But it was the only thing they have seen in all these years. They didn’t know what day it was, they can’t remember what weather it was, they didn’t know in what year they were living. All they could remember is witnessing the brutality of that monster.

“How are you all my old friends” He asked smiling. All the sevens were praying to the god let me be killed from his hands today so that I don’t have to face him again. He moved towards the young girl, the daughter of the old man who was next to her. He looked her in eyes and roared, “Do u want to be freed from this. Today is the day”   He took a sharp long knife from corner hold the face of her in his left hand and pushed the pointed end of the knife in his neck . Blood spilled out of that. And she groaned like never before. He looked in her eyes like the pain on her face was pleasing him. He pressed the knife harder and she moans louder. He kept on pushing it until the pointed end came out of another side of her neck, until her voice choked in her throat and she fell on the floor. He stood and looked next to her father. His eyes were wet but he was too weak to cry out.  Her mother who was next to him had already fainted. He ignored the old man and moved towards her. She was lying fainted with her back on the floor. He pushed his knife in the middle of her throat as she came back to consciousness with moaning loud. He pulled the knife backwards keeping it inside the muscles cutting out the muscles between her breasts until he reached to the naval and he pulled the knife out of the body.  Then he moved towards the father who was shivering in fear. He had seen that monster for many years but today he was at his peak. He held his head with his right hand and struck it hard on the iron chain that tied him. Blood come out flowing through the crack as he cried out aloud in pain. Leaving him on floor he moved towards his last captive, the young boys who he liked most among all.
 “Do u know what’s your mistake my dear, “He burst out in laughter saying this and next second his face turned to red. His eyes stared him like he would eat him alive. He took the long blade knife and slashed his thigh muscles at three places. In next move he moved the knife across the cut made by him pushing the knife strongly inside the muscles and three slices of his thigh muscles came out if body with his knife. It took almost thirty minutes to him to completely skin his favorite one and he did let him die. He cried, he begged, he pleaded, he moaned, and he like a painter painting with full concentration Ripped of every part of body that he could think could Be took oIt keeping him alive. He unchained the remaining body and took it in the corner of the hall. He brought the jar kept behind the entrance and pour on the body. The loudness in his moan increased.
“You are getting much less for what have done” He shouted in anger and then took lighter out of his pocket. Lit it and threw on him. He dragged the rest four to the burning body and threw them in the fire to burn alive crying and moved towards the edge of the hall.

He entered the small room at the corner of the hall. A thin frame was lying on the floor. The front wall had a screen that showed the view of the hall. The room was absolute white. One cannot see anything but the white, wherever his eyes fall. For the last 15 years it was that entire she had been seeing. She stumbled as he helped to rise her up. She stood a step away in front of him. She had appealing glorious eyes. The perfectly carved face and the beautiful lips. I want your face to be the last thing that I see before my soul separates from my body, so that I may rest in peace for ever. He remembered these words said by him some day. He felt like an entire era has elapsed since then. He came closer to her. He was standing so close that he could feel her breath on his chest. He was staring her eyes like he was trying to find out some answers in them.
"One day when u will be with me I am going to talk to u, and talk to u and talk to u."
"And what if I get tired and fall asleep? "
"I will keep on looking the beautiful face of yours the whole night then, waiting for the moment when these beautiful lips will be in action again. I have missed this voice of yours for 6 years; I will not let u go that easily. "
"You are such a sweetheart." A few hairs blew and come on his face to bring him back in the reality. He stared the beautiful lips a few inches away. He was trying to dissolve the reality into a beautiful illusion. He recalled the oath taken by him on the great ceremony held the day before-  The person who shall commit  mistake shall be guided towards better alternatives towards leading a beautiful life and if someone makes the same mistake again we shall ensure he remains not strong enough to do the mistake third time. None of the wrong doers shall go unpunished to corrupt our society.
“Why did u do all that?"He said breathing heavily as if he was searching for the answer within himself rather than asking her. She could feel his heavy heartbeats as if they were coming from somewhere inside her own body. Her eyes were fixed to the ground. Tears came rolling out of her eyes.
"I will punish everyone who will even try to bring tears into your eyes"
"oh really"
"yes of course, your smile is the reason of my happiness, and I am very selfish person. Whoever will try to take away my happiness will get punished"
"u r  wonderful"  His hands moved on his own towards her to wipe off her tears but he forced it to stop. He tried to hide the tears that start coming out of his eyes too. He wanted to hold her and cry until all the rage in him gets washed away. He wanted to forget everything and start like nothing happened. But he knew this was impossible. There was nothing that could compensate the time that has elapsed. He knew he had to be strong in this situation. But why it was needed. She was all that he always desired of. He has seen the dream of growing old with her. To be near her all the time he could. Now the entire dream he has seen may have come to be true. He could start anew in a beautiful world where he was with her. In a world which he always desired of with the one who meant most to him in that world. He has determined what he has to do.
                                                               ###############
He came out slammed the door, and start moving towards the parking taking fast steps.
He was struggling with his thoughts sitting back in the Car. He pointed towards sector 9. The driver took a left turn and entered the judiciary section of the city. There was not very much crowd in this part of the city when compared with other parts. Though it was built taking the same area as any other society was built in that city, it didn’t consist of anything besides a magnificent symmetrical construction painted in white which symbolized peace. At the middle of the building “The judiciary” was painted in red. In front of the judiciary there was as much space as to accommodate one lacs person. This capacity was to be utilized in the cases of public execution. Parking area was built underground the whole area to make sure there will not be unnecessary occupation of area above. There was a 6 meter wide road which runs straight from the entrance to the building.
 "We are here sir” he looked the driver as if he had waked him up from the beautiful dream.
“We are here” he repeated. He came out and took steps towards the entrance of the judiciary. As he reached near the gate, the four security officers bow down to him simultaneously. He acknowledged the respect shown by them with a fake smile on his face and moved ahead. He moved to the fourth floor which has the chamber of Chief judicial officer which was of the highest rank in the entire judiciary system of any city. When the officer saw him coming towards his chamber, he stood in respect and came himself to receive him on the gate. He smiled and put his right hand on the shoulder of the officer indicating him to sit on his designated place. He remained stood in front of the table.
"Is there something important? You could have summoned me to your home."
“You are the chief judicial officer of this city, my friend. You should not come to home on any common man summoning you”
“You are not a common man, sir” These words of the officer put a smile on his face. How the things had changed in last two decades. He still sometimes found it unbelievable.
“What does section fifty seven of public execution rules stands?” He asked looking down towards the floor. His fingers fiddled with the pen on the table while he sat on the chair in front of the table.
“Whoever shows cruelty towards any person living in the nation or indulge in brutal activities towards them, shall subject to public execution” But why are u asking this at this time?
“Because, I am liable to be executed under that rule. I have killed thirteen people in the most brutal manner I could ever imagine and according to the rules of the land, I must be punished. Announce the whole city to gather in the judiciary compound tomorrow.” The officer looked at him as if he was talking in a language that he was unable to understand. He stood, come down on his knees to show respect and said in a loud voice, “who we are to punish u, who we are to judge u, who we are to punish you. You have created this all, the nation belongs to u. Every person residing in the nation owe his life to you, No one will let this happen. You have devoted all your life to make us prosper and expect us to take your life. What you say is the rule of the land, and what you do is our tradition.”
“I think you are tired sir, you should rest for some time, and we can talk on this matter when you feel good."  
He turned back to come out of the chamber. The peon entered with a glass of water and offered him. He took a sip and gave it back to him. He moved ahead towards the parking. The officer kept on looking him until he moved away of his eyesight. He asked the driver to take him to the hills outside the city. The driver was used to of taking him in that part of the land. The driver started the engine and moved outside the gates while once again he was in his deep thoughts. He saw the roads. Only a few vehicles were running. The entire city was clean. He remembered the populous roads that he moved on in the childhood. The unpleasant sounds of horns that everyone used to blow. The irritating smell of smoke produced by the vehicles. He wanted to forget everything that had happened since then. He wanted to live like time has not passed from those days. He wanted to sleep carefree like those days. But he knew this was not possible. Time is one of the mysterious phenomenons ever created. He wanted to hold it, take it back to those times but he was helpless. He came out of the car as it stopped. He came out, the driver handed him his notepad and pen as he always did when he come here.
 “There’s no need of these. Just go home, I’ll call u when I need u here” having said this he moved towards the woods. This was the place where the journey of his life begun. All the ideas originated here. He used to come out in these woods and sat down for hours whenever he became sad. The silence here was the best he got in his life. He kept on moving farther inside, until he reached the big rock where he generally sit. He moved to its edge and looked down once again. He always thought where these depth ends. The city was built on a hill area and this was the end. One could see nothing but dark looking from the place he stood. He saw on his left side, a pair of pigeon was playing inside their nest. Like there was nothing to worry about. They don’t have to think what the world was, what the others were doing, why the sun was shining over them, and why the people were meeting deaths. The only thing that matters in their life was they. He always wanted to live like that. This place has given him strength, knowledge, ideas Every time he came. He closed his eyes, like he was trying to collect something, to see something which he could not ever see with his eyes open. It was his childhood- she was in front of her with most beautiful face he had ever seen. She was smiling seeing him. A line of happiness moved across his face seeing her smile. He took her in her arms and said – I’ll never let u go. I’ll take care of u whatever comes. I’ll punish them all who try ever to bring tears in your eyes. She held her head on his shoulders. He tightened his arms getting her closer to him. And his took a step ahead. His legs came up in the air and went back down. But there was no rock to support it. He transferred the weight of his body towards the front leg and his body swung in the air to reach the endless depth lying ahead.
 “I want your face to be the last thing which I see when I will be dieing.”
 “I shall love u till my last breath, whatever you do”
 “Memory of u will be the last thing that I will carry when I have to go from this world to another world.”
 “They say love destroys, see the strength of your love, it built a nation”
 “Now you are with me, this is all that I had ever desired out of my life. I won’t let u go this time” his arms got more tightened. And every thought coming in his mind got disappeared……..
