Friendship, Love and Passion ( Ch. 5 Part 6)
THE MYSTERIOUS SOUND
Anirudh walked through the hard, rugged walls of the lonely basement of the school. There were not many room in the basement, or people in the school at this hour. He glanced at his watch with projected 6:30 am. He sighed, with the thought as to why was he here? Anybody seeing him around at this time would probably laugh at him without fail.
As his feet padded the bumpy floor of the wing, he recollected his night from y’day, which woke him up in the morning.
The sweat from his forehead dripped onto his eye, waking him in a jiffy. He gasped for breath as he was comforted by the walls of his room. His hands loosened from his strangled neck and tightened their grip on the blanket covering him. He had dreamed that the wall were closing in on him, strangling him with the little amount of air available.
There was obviously no light all around, throwing him deeper and deeper into the black hole of loneliness. His stomach firmed up with the dizziness in his head due to claustrophobia.
Every time he was held in closed spaces, he would have these nightmares.
He looked up to see his room lighted up with the candle light and the aroma of vanilla in the air. (No wonder he smelled like Vanilla to Tanya 😉 )
He took a few deep breaths in and out, let loose of his blanket and hopped out of the bed. The light rays forced their way around the room, penetrating the room from one corner to the other. His sleepy gaze was replaced by modesty,wishing for a hand of comfort to be placed on his shoulder. The picture of her care and chirpiness started to glue back his broken heart back in place.
The lightning from the rainy weather of November, filled the place with even more light than needed. He yearned for the day where he could escape all this, go live in a place far from all these fears, in a place where no one could ever find him again…….his home, Los Angeles. He recalled the time where Tanya started to say something with Lo for her hometown.
Was she his LONG LOST childhood friend?? Was she the person who he was longing to take REVENGE from??
With all these thoughts in his mind, he rested his startled mind to pause, assuring it the fact that he would find out all the answers in the morning.
He kept on walking from one of the corridors to the next, which were all intersected, circling the mass building. He didn’t really know what he was doing hear anyways, so he made his mind to ascend upstairs to the open atrium. The atrium was filled with chairs from the previous night of the Dance Mania. The atrium was a open space, with nothing except the ceiling on top of it. All the 3 floors had an open balcony which permitted to see the atrium below. At the moment, there was no sound in the building except for a very few teachers moving from place to place. He took a seat in of the chairs placed before him to calm the restlessness in his body. He wanted answers to his questions, RIGHT NOW.
The music band entered the building with their instruments. Pianos. Guitars. Flutes. Drums. Clarinettes. etc. Anirudh spotted Ky and Mark within the crowd of people and waved back. He lifted himself and dragged his body to them.
“Yo, what’s up?” Anirudh asked as he approached his buddies.
“We’re having a concert at St.Luth’s today,” Ky replied with a smile
“Cool! Heard that they are really good,” Anirudh said back
“Good, you know how good our dance team is compared to others, St.Luth’s band is that good,” Mark said tensely,
“Pressure, lots of pressure,” Anirudh teased back, relieved he does not have to deal with anything like that at the moment. “Lol! You’ll do fine,”
At that minute, Anirudh heard faint rhythm of classical music. The beats of the music caught his ears, waking up his rested body. “Guys, do you hear that,”
“Yeah, but that’s not our band,” Ky responded instantly, concentrating on the music.
“I wonder who it is then, isn’t it coming from the basement,” Mark concluded.
“I am going to find out, catch you later,” Anirudh said.
Anirudh sprinted to the stairs, where the music was still not clear to him. He rushed down the stairs, and walked cautiously to the wing on his right. The music was still not clear, but he heard the ghungroos clamping to the rocky floor. Where was this happening? Who on earth would dance in the BASEMENT of the school.
Anirudh took a sharp turn into another hallway of the basement. He moved slowly like a snake, slithering through the corridor without stopping the music. Half way through the hallways, he was able to hear the music pretty well.
Dha Dhin Dhin Dha
Dha Dhin Dhin Dha
Dha Tin Tin Ta
Ta Dhin Dhin Dha
Dha Dhin Dhin Dha
He heard the person catch every beat of the tune, which he could tell by the constant motion of the ghungroos. This to him seemed like a warm up exercise, which quickly changed to another tune
Dhin Dhin Dha Dha
Tin Tin Ta
Dhin Dhin Dha Dha
As he got closer to the ‘Forbidden Dance Room’ which nobody really used, he spotted a girl with very long braided hair, wearing a large black hoodie with black leggings underneath. Her ankles were padded with golden and extremely shiny ghungroos.
Anirudh stood there awestruck by seeing her grace and beauty of the dance. He failed to see her face, as she kept facing the wall in front of her. Looking at her physique, she didn’t seem like anyone Anirudh knew. Her hair reached upto her knees, Sammy had extremely long hair, similar to hers.
This person also had long sharp nails like Tanya and looks like she had a sharp nose like Via by looking at her shadow appearing on the other side of the wall.
As he was admiring her, the song paused to an end. She walked ahead and bent onto her knees to take her phone out. The minute she did, she probably noticed him standing behind her, by his shadow or with the mirror of her phone. She went all numb, caught her bag, from the side of the music player and ran through the back door of the room. Anirudh hurried to the door to stop her, by couldn’t catch her due to her fastness. She seemed like quite an athlete, just like Anisha. Anirudh cursed himself for not paying attention to the back door of the building which led to the exit of the building. More importantly, her identity laid a mystery to him, WHO THE HELL WAS SHE????
Next: The investigation (Anirudh trying to see if this person is someone he knows.)
The story took a quick turn into suspense and mystery. How do you like it?? I hope you all are not confused with the part, if so pls leave a comment and I will be happy to reply 🙂
