Hiii everyone..as I said it’s not a murder mystery or crime thriller..neither a love story nor a hate story..it’s a ill fated dark story..and m writing something like this very first time..so kindly bear with my mistake……..
Darkness :” Why human beings try to stay away from me. Because they are afraid, they are weak. Its only wise and brave can embrace me not the weak. I am a shield to hide behind, others use me as an excuse to do unconscionable things. But, truly, the darkness,me is simply a piece of the whole, neither good nor evil unless you make so. It depends on bearer how they accept me and wish me to be..
Those who loves light should remember without me there’s no value of light. When u light a candle u also caste a shadow that is me. People use me and throw me later putting all blame on me; but still I have my charm…….
The forensic report came. It said mala died due to choke. Less supply of oxygen into her body made her killed. Some kind of breathing problems she had. So it was proved as a natural death. After this incident there’s no evidence left to prove anything in Anuj Mehera’s case. With the lack of evidence against most of the suspects and the sudden death of the main suspect made police except for samaira, were forced to conclude the case personally but officially the case remained unsolved and closed. This somehow didn’t go well with Sam,she was after that case personally. Moreover she was after Radhika Mishra,teen girl whom her sixth sense never accepted.
Radhika was sitting inside her small house and cursing her fate,their poorness and crying when a delivery boy approached her with some food. She was hesitant first but after seeing face of the man called him inside. He caressed her face and hugged her to pacify;” don’t worry. Everything will be alright soon”.
After few days a distant relative of Dilip Mishra, Nandini Pandey came to radhika and legally adopted her. She was very happy seeing nandini and hugged her excitedly. Nandini was a rich lady having no children. The very first thing she exclaimed seeing radhika;” you are so beautiful and warm. How can I let u be alone. If u want u can bend president also according to ur wish” & laughed mischievously. After nandini took her , she always emphasized rads to learn basic etiquettes of high society. As radhika was a composed child from first it didn’t took her much time to learn.in fact it’s like she acquainted with all these much before.
After two months
There was a big gossip among boys group at national institute of engineering and technology( NIET) about a beautiful second year transferred girl, Radhika. Everybody wanted to befriend with her, but nobody dared to talk with her. Because she had her ever glowing beautiful face, midnight long hair,with a pair of mysterious attractive eyes ,rich lady’s classy attitude and way of speaking which prohibited them. Kritika was studying with her from high school time without having any knowledge about her background. She always wanted to talk with her and befriend with her.When she gathered some courage finally , talked to her and asked radhika, “will you be my friend?”, and to her surprised, radhika welcomed her so friendly with a big smile and expressed her happiness to see her in new college. Kritika is an ordinary girl with ordinary looks and she wears glasses, so she felt it is such an honor to be radhika’s best friend. She is proud of it, in fact. She decided she will protect radhika no matter what.
After befriended with radz, kritika has to face noisy boys from college trying to talk to them after class, well, talk to radz actually, and kritika would always try to protect radz as rads didn’t want to talk with others. They also know that a certain boy named Amit was trying to touch rads . Kritika was bewildered that rads didn’t say anything to that boy and she didn’t let her to say anything either. But radz explained;” that it is best to ignore those boys, there’s no use talking to them.”
Jai khurana a rich heir and fourth year student of NIET. He fell for radz at first sight according to him. He was the president of college and with that power he went to visit radz. He was casually talking with her which made her laugh. Suddenly they heard a noise and came out to see Amit was beating Arjun. Jai stopped them and send Arjun to dispensary. Radhika was surprised seeing all those violence. Jai exclaimed;” Arjun was a silent person always,never fights back. He never talked with anyone,neither he has friends. So he was bullied easily . After his father died the case is even worse”. Radhika expressed her sadness on Arjun.
Kritika was searching for radhika as college time was over. She felt weird when she found radz reading a novel ” last chance” in college library and biting her nails constantly. when kritika called her to go she said she’ll finish the book n go. Kritika sat with her without any choice. Radhika highlighted some lines of novels. After some time a beep sound alerted on rads phone. She stood up to move, it was a bit darker. Rads suggested they should took short cut route to reach soon. As they cross old premises of college they heard some low noise and went inside. The whole area filled with their scream. Another famous face bonnie from their college lied there half naked and unconscious.
Police reached at place and interrogate everyone as bonnie was from political background. But everyone clarified that nobody generally went that way . Teji asked rads & kritika why they went there. Kritika defended radz as usual by explanation. But radz told boldly that she remembered the boy who always irritate her n girls. She told Amit’s name which shocked kritika. Teji showed a half broken bracelet ,which jai remembered as amit’s .Amit was sent to jail.Teji saw Arjun stood behind without any expression like before. He was always curious on him. So He asked;” I heard u had a fight with Amit yesterday. Is that true”. Jai was explaining the situation while radz went forward and defended for Arjun by saying how Amit mercilessly beat Arjun. She added extra things on her statement to which jai was shocked but didn’t say anything.
Radhika said to kritika they should visit bonnie. They both went to bonnie’s house. Her mother said bonnie doesn’t want to see anybody for now And told them that although the incident happened, bonnie’s virginity was not taken. She asked them to believe her about this. In return, radhika said, “We were not thinking that her virginity was taken at all, please do not worry,”. By the time of their returning radz bumped with saral who was brother of bonnie. Saral was bowled away with radz beauty and request them to have dinner with them. In return rads only smiled, kritika didn’t understand a thing..
After few days kritika paid a visit to radz home. Nandini welcomed her although she didn’t like anybody to visit her daughter without having any class. Kritika went to rads too and saw her knitting something on a handkerchief. She asked;” your name is radhika, then why u stitched A.M. instead of R.M.” To which radhika replied ;” this is in memory of my mother who called me Angel. So it was angel Mishra.”
She further added ;” I know u r curious about my adoption. U can ask me anything. I went for my part time job that day. It’s little late that day for my return. When I came back my mother was died coz of breathing problems. It was my mistake, if I returned early that day then my mother would not have been died.it’s my fault,m the culprit”. With that she cried vigorously. Kritika tried to pacify her while crying herself on rads fate..
At midnight in a coffee shop Arjun was waiting for someone with his hoody jacket on. After sometime neil came there and gave him a parcel. Arjun opened and stared at the photos of his father Anuj Mehera with mala , Amit ‘s mother and other ladies. Another photo contains Mrs Mehera with samrat Khanna a business person. He tighten up his fist to control his anger. Neil move to near his seat and gave a side arm hug to him ;” u know little brother sometimes if we leave it upto time , it will heal everything by the time. So can’t u stop here and walk with me? I even don’t know the reason , if that reason is justified. If it was the correct person”.
Arjun smiled faintly n said ;” I didn’t do anything wrong as u said. Everyone is a moon which has a dark side they don’t want to show.There is darkness inside all of us, though mine is more dangerous than most. Still, we all have it. That part of our soul that is irreparably damaged by the very trials and tribulations of life”.
He saw Neil confused but looking serious by his talking. So he ordered two coffees. Neil noticed after that coffee Arjun used a new handkerchief with initials A.M. to wipe his face. Neil said casually;” I visited someone before who is very talented in knitting. When I am working as delivery man”.. Arjun glared neil as his eyes become more darker..
Teji was going through the book ” the last chance” at college library as per samaira’s instructions. He found it very weird ,the highlighted part with a underline.it’s written as
“THE PAIN OF SEVERE DEPRESSION IS QUITE UNIMAGINABLE TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SUFFERED IT, AND IT KILLS U MANY TIME INSIDE.DARKNESS, WHEN EVERYTHING THAT YOU KNOW AND LOVE, WRONG YOU SO HARSHLY. ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS ANGER, HATRED, AND EVEN REVENGE AND NO ONE CAN SAVE YOU. THERE IS NO LAST CHANCE,ONLY DO OR DON’T.”
Even teji severed reading the lines. He thought who may be highlighted such terrifying thoughts and underlined it. He went to librarian and asked for the register to check out who read the book. He was shocked seeing both Radhika and Arjun’s name on register. Another name which pulled him was Riddhima Mishra. He ran to check the book again, where he saw some very very small words near that highlights area. He put the magnifying glass and look that word ” Riddhi”……..
