Link to the previous epi: Here
I was now finally, away from that evil thing of my life and I thanked her for helping although in the most bizarre way. I remembered the day when she caught me taking drugs from a peddler in a desolate building. Initially, I was shocked as to how she reached a desolate place like this. I had then tried bringing the situation in my court but she already had her plans in place. She was successfully in catching my weak nerves. But still I have no regrets when I look back from the place I’m standing.
“The place I’m standing”… Damn it!!! I realized where I was and with whom. Me and my brother, no… DAREDEVIL brother were right now in Darwin and that too, in the cage of death. Although we were enclosed in a glass chamber and those scary crocodiles would do no harm yet, the whole scenario was petrifying to me. I crossed my fingers and closed them each in a tight fist as I started chanting prayers remembering each and every god I have known in my entire life. I heard a sudden voice which made me open my eyes in a jerk. One of those creepy reptile had hit the cage with his tail which made it wobble slightly. I could not even duck behind my brother as they had surrounded us from all side as if they were ready to pounce upon us and tear up our flesh. I looked up at bro as he was enjoying this EXHILARATING adventure. Yes, it was damn exhilarating for him. We were supposed to be here for a hell lot of 15 minutes but the time had just stopped moving.
‘Bhai…’ He even didn’t allow me to complete my words.
‘Just shut up, Vicky. See, how interesting this is all. Don’t spoil my mood.’
I frowned at him as I started doing the thing that I was best at, praying. A few minutes more into this torture when I felt the cage to be moving. My heart forgot its pace as it started racing. I opened one of my eye as I saw the cage being pulled out. I hugged bhai in excitement as he kept frowning at the end of his adventure.
‘Finally,’ I screamed as my feet landed on the floor. Our guards soon brought us towels as we started wiping off our bodies.
‘Bhai, your phone,’ I pointed out to him as it rang.
‘Pick it up. The call is for you.’
I received the call as it turned out to be of dad. The call went in for a few minutes before I hung up. ‘But why, bhai? I mean you were about to handle another branch of our company and now!!! Why did you change your decision?’
‘Relax Vicky. Well, It’s just that I’m interested in handling Delhi branch of our company. And of course, it’ll be break for you too. For how long will you manage both your studies and this branch? Just focus on this final year exam and then viola!! You too can work with me. But of course, the final decision regarding everything will be mine.’
I stood there transfixed. ‘What if bhai see her?’ I thought of calling and informing her but only when I’m not with bhai.
‘I’m coming.’ I listened to bhai’s words as he turned towards me and continued. ‘Come on, get ready. The flight is in a few hours. I have to join from tomorrow.’
Why am I destined to get all the information as shocks? ‘But we were supposed to leave tomorrow.’ I had again tried to reason out with him which was definitely in vain. He glared at me as I decided to follow his instruction.
My head was still dizzy as it started to pain as soon as I opened my eyes. I sat up on the bed as I cupped my forehead between my palms. I noticed a pair of lefts walking towards me from between my palms. I looked up as he literally shoved the glass in my face. ‘How did you come here? Leave it.’ I lifted my hand to take the glass from him but he pulled back the glass.
‘What the hell!!! Don’t test my patience, Shauraya.’
‘Serves you right for hiding things from me. Now I want to know everything, RIGHT NOW.’
I heard him stressing on the words “right now” as I looked up to him grumpily. I was definitely not in a mood to fight as this throbbing headache had not even diminished a bit. I moved over to the kitchen as he trailed behind me.
‘What the heck is this!!!’ I shrieked as soon as I opened the fridge door. There was no lemon there. ‘Where did all the lemons go?’ I raised my brow as I slammed the fridge door and questioned him.
‘Forget it and answer me first.’
‘Oh god!!! I’ll answer but first give me the juice.’ I again extended my hand but he just moved back. ‘I promise, idiot.’ I literally shouted at him.
I saw his smile transforming into a smirk as he finally handed over the glass to me. I gulped down the lemon juice down my throat as I realized that there was no way of escaping from his questions. I had promised him and he knew that I never back off… the reason of his smirk.
I kept the glass on the kitchen counter and looked at him so that he would change his resolute. He crossed his arms in front of his chest as he glared at me. He held my hand as we moved over to the bedroom and made ourselves comfortable there.
And I continued, ‘This is what happened…’
